This guided sleep meditation is for people looking for better quantity or quality of sleep. Our listeners report getting deeper, sounder, longer lasting, and more restorative sleep, and waking up feeling more refreshed and ready for the day.
The guided imagery in the narrative creates a rich atmosphere of protection, safety and support, with images that are evocative enough and music that is soothing enough to successfully compete with obsessive thinking and brain chatter, and instead draw mind, body and spirit down into deep, restful sleep. It has been our perennial bestseller for the past 25 years.
It is recommended for difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep; for women with the kinds of sleep disruption associated with menopause; and for people with sleep problems such as nightmares, restless leg syndrome, and parasomnias such as sleepwalking.
Designed for those who want to fall asleep faster or who wake up in the middle of the night and want to quickly fall back to sleep, it has been found to lower the dosage of needed sleep medication or replace it altogether in a substantial number of users. Repeated listening at bedtime for 2-3 weeks is an ideal way to start.
Written by clinical social worker and holistic health pioneer, Belleruth Naparstek, scored to the immersive music of Steven Mark Kohn, and produced by the Cleveland Orchestra's Bruce Gigax.
