    Modern physics tells us that you create your own reality, based on where you place your attention. The new physics is proving what the mystics have always told us. And one of the practices that's demonstrated its effectiveness time and time again is meditation. The six experiences you will be guided through in Collapse the World will allow you to eliminate virtually all the stress in your life, increase your feeling of fulfillment, lengthen your lifespan, and feel happy, peaceful, and content!

    Gordon says: "GIM with bad music"
    "GIM with bad music"
    Overall

    No seminar, lecture, or tangible information in this audio book. It does contain around 6 GIMs. (Guided Imagery Meditations) Intro and narration are typical to any “altered state” type audio and the “breathing instructions” are repeated on every cut. (The unexpected “snorf-haaa” (breathing technique reminder) in the middle of each exercise tends to startle the listener and breaks concentration.)

    Where this well intended audio left me disillusioned is a really bad music bed for the meditations. The background consists of only three variations played on an electric piano with pad. These three patterns repeat throughout the entire audio book on each and every cut. I find myself desperately wishing for any other possible sound to break the torment of this loop.

    Please don’t confuse this with entrainment music. This is not “trance” nor does it contain any “Binaural Beat Brainwave Entrainment Technologies” as would be typically found in altered state or meditation programs. (i.e., Thompson, Monroe, or Hemi-sync) It is simply a set of guided exercises. I know this because I am a composer who also writes music for entrainment.

    No explanation offered for the perceived retail “value” of this collection. Maybe it’s offered to increase your intrinsic satisfaction with this month’s “free” selection.

    Other works by this author seem to offer better insight into this esoteric market.
