The pacing, nonprescriptive visualizations, and appropriate music are all hallmarks of an excellent meditative program. Highly recommended for people who meditate or are interested in alternative/ complementary healing modalities. - Library Journal - Starred Review! KRS Edstrom's Inner Mastery CDs are well-crafted blends of her silky voice, calming background music, and intuitive insights on how we experience stress with our entire bodies. Using her voice to good effect, she offers guided meditations that soothe, center, and relax the deepest parts of ourselves. The intended results are calmer breathing, improved awareness of tension in the body, and a natural awareness of how to relax the mind and body when we want to. As a primer on how to engage one's stress and manage it better, and as a rejuvenating resource, few relaxation programs sound as inviting. - AudioFile Magazine THE PURPOSE OF THE 'WELLNESS SET': Mindfulness meditation is a non-denominational, non-sectarian practice and the core technique used throughout this series. Mindfulness cultivates an awareness of present moment with open-palmed acceptance; an appreciation of now and all that it contains. Imagery and breath techniques are also used to enhance your meditation experience. The purpose of the Inner Master Series is that you not only experience results after each listen, but that you also develop increasingly deeper skills to serve you in all of life's challenges. Commonly considered negatives such as pain, stress and insomnia are transformed in a non-judgmental way that invites insight and is both growth-promoting and freeing. Once perceived enemies turn into welcome teachers. Similarly, everyday events such as watching a bird soar, greeting a neighbor or putting on your socks are experienced in a more mindful, complete way; a way that enriches your relationship to self, spirit and thus, the rest of the world.
