I had tried out a friend's copy and enjoyed it, so I purchased one of my own.

At first it just sounds like a new age cd but when you use it to meditate it pulls you in to a state of very deep relaxation.
Annette Sonnenberg
It has only been through the use of Dr. Thompson's Theta CDs I have approached anything like meditation.

There is a scientific principle called entrainment. If two items are vibrating side by side at different speeds then the item that vibrates at the lower speed will adjust to vibrate at the same frequency as the other object.

Examples of this are swings in a playground that are swinging out of sync and adjust. Also, in a clock store you may notice the pendulum clocks of the same size swinging back and forth in unison.

Research has been done into the brainwaves of people in relaxed meditative states, such as yogis, swamis and creative people. Dr T has incorporated these brainwave patterns into his music to entrain your mind to reach the Theta state.

So, if you were to be subjected to these Theta waves which are embedded in the relaxing sounds, your mind will gradually reattune itself, so you can reach a similar state. This change is not permanent. Yet , the more you listen to it the more you will learn to attain these states yourself, effortlessly, and access a deeper part of self.

Dr Jeffrey Thompson has done extensive research into stress and the power of relaxing music and entrainment and has used that research to create pulses, chord patterns, sounds from nature such as sea, rainfall, bird songs, whales and dolphins. Sometimes these sounds are electronically changed to accelerate the mental response to get to the Theta state.

Theta is a state of mind associated with creativity, relaxation, and problem solving, and sleep. Have you ever been thinking about a problem and then you wake up in the middle of the night, with the solution, an aha moment. Well, you were probably in a Theta state. As you listen you may notice relaxing peaceful imagery flowing through your mind.

One of the other reviewers agreed that the CD was very effective, but concluded that Dr. Jeffrey Thompson was a "quack" because the reviewer didn't understand how stereo speakers could possibly reproduce the very low frequencies for Theta: 5-7 CPS. The problem is that the reviewer was ignorant of the technology used by Dr. Thompson, which is only briefly referred to in the materials. Dr. Thompson utilizes a technology similar to that of the Monroe Institute, who has called it "Hemi-synch". The concept is that sounds are played on both the left and right stereo channels, and are electronically modified so that they are out of synch by the frequency you are trying to achieve in the brain...6 CPS, for example, if you want Theta brainwaves. This accomplishes two things: 1. It synchronizes the two hemispheres of the brain (a very good thing) and 2. It generates a 6 CPS pulse, which tends to entrain the brainwaves to that same frequency. This is a very, very effective technique, as is demonstrated by the effectiveness of the Theta Meditation System. I highly recommend these CDs for people who wish to attain the Theta state for relaxation or for personal metaphysical exploration. This is a proven technology, and far more effective than simple "New Age" relaxation music, since this technology directly drives the brain to create the frequencies desired.

I've been looking for background music for my meditation sessions for awhile. I have found that this CD leaves me relaxed, but not to a point that I want go to bed after the session. The sound on the recordings is really incredible and very "3D-like". Although the instruction booklet states that one can use normal speakers, I personally use headphones because the 3D effects tend to have a more profound effect on me.
The booklet (around 6 pages) also gives information on the "idea" behind the technology used on the recordings, as well as information on each "song". The booklet states that the first CD (Renewal) helps in visualization, problem solving and emotional clearing, while the second CD (Insight) is for a "deeper" meditation for gaining information, wisdom, intuition, and healing. Each song on the CD is 30 minutes long and was made to play in repeat mode if needed.
The great thing about this CD is that you can use any meditation or visualization exercises that you currently use. I have also found that I get better results in my sessions when I play this CD, rather than without it.
Highly Recommended!

Bought these CDs more than a year ago: I have mix feelings for them - at first doubt - could this actually work? And if it does work - is it safe? Kind of weird thinking about something that can synchronize my brain waves - thus I did not really listen to these CDs until today.

Pop the CDs into my computer and put my headphones on. 1st thing I notice was that I felt relax, but interestingly not sleepy. This is kind of weird since listening to soft music with my eyes close usually gets me a little drowsy. I notice that my muscles were relaxing since it kind of twitch a little once in awhile. Again I was not sleepy. Then I felt something I never did before in my life (maybe I had, but I don't remember), all of a sudden maybe after 7-10 minutes into the CD, almost instantly, I felt nothing! It felt really strange - I can't explain it - is as if I could not feel my body at all - I felt a very powerful sense of calmness - not the sleepy kind - its like a nice breeze of fresh air - simply calm - got excited about the "not feeling the body thing" and the sensation went away, calm down and it kind of came back again on and off - very strange -

A few other things I notice was that while listening to the CD my mind was not completely quiet, but for some reason it really did not bother me ( I say this because this is what makes meditation difficult for me), and also when I finally stopped the CD about 21 minutes has pass (usually 20 minutes of meditation is very difficult for me). After I stopped it I did not feel tired or drowsy. I tried it again tonight and again I felt that same calm sensation once again - only this time it was not as intense.

Anyway, I really don't know whether it was me or maybe the CD or both. And if it is the CD, I really don't know how safe it is.
