Excellent except for one problem...
on July 11, 2004
It was an excellent idea to make a CD companion to the book "Inner Temple of Witchcraft." A lot of the meditations in the book are longer and involved, and having it narrated to you is a lot easier than straining to remember what you're supposed to be doing during a meditation. The production quality of the CD set is very good. Penczak has a good narration style, and the music is unobtrusive and mood-enhancing. If you are working through the book, then this is an excellent tool to help you on your way.
However, I had one big problem with the CDs, and that's why the set only gets 4 stars instead of 5. Rather than having each meditation with its own track, all the meditation exercises from a chapter are lumped together as one track. So, if you want to do the exercises singly instead of a chapter at a time, you have to hold down the skip button to get where you want to be on the CD. Needless to say, this is not exactly conducive to a deep meditative state. This can be overcome by some computer editing, but if you don't have the tools or the patience, then there's not much you can do.
That annoyance aside, I do recommend getting the CDs as well as the book if you're going to be working through the meditation exercises.
