So painful.

The narrator interrupts the meditation every 30 seconds with a harsh American Hollywood commercial voice. "Maybe you're sitting in a chair, maybe you're sitting in your back yard, maybe you're in your car picking your kids up from school..."
I could not stand it, plus there are harsh intros and outros "THIS IS AUDIBLE"... and "WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED..." sandwiching this 5 min meditation. I just spent 10 mins trying unsuccessfully to delete this out of my library.

Tony Robbins hosts Twenty Minute Workout

What a strange meditation series this is. I love that Audible decided to make something like this available and I love that it's free. Unfortunately the choice of music, narrator and his unfortunate delivery mean this package is a massive dud. I can't believe it was ever even released.

After Day 1 and 2 were recorded, did anyone actually listen to the result? It's Tony Robbins style narration with Twenty Minute Workout music. I was anticipating "aaaand 3 mooore, 2 mooore."

I meditate multiple times per day and use different programs to do so. I wonder if the creator or narrator of this package has ever meditated.

I have to declare this one a DUD but hope Audible will try again.

Just not the right narrator

I enjoy meditation, I've used several different guided meditations and unfortunately this guy just does not have that soothing
tone or pace needed to properly relax. I think the guides themselves are okay but a new narrator is needed.

Meh

I was excited to try this one out. That's where the positive really ended. I couldn't manage to find anything but the last 3 'episodes' when trying to download to my computer to use with media player. So I kept clicking everywhere I could think of to try and figure it out, got frustrated and decided to check the reviews to see if anyone else had the same issue. Didn't see anything mentioned, however the ones that were posted led me to run through the sample really quick. That in turn made me glad I couldn't seem to get them to download. I'm sure Audible/Aaptiv thought this was a good idea, but it was poorly executed. The narrator's voice isn't one I would be able to sit and listen to for guided meditation for long. In fact, I barely made it halfway though the sample, his tone just isn't as soothing and relaxing as I had hoped for. And if you want me to concentrate on just breathing and not thinking about anything else for 5 minutes, don't interrupt every 10 seconds with little quips about 'great job, you're meditating' because no, I'm not with the constant interjections. Definitely won't be worried about this one disappearing from my library in a week or so.

not recommended

this is not the way to learn meditation, with distracting background music/sound track and misinformation.

Poorly executed by a narrator who can't guide

I had high hopes for this series. However, guided mediation is not supposed to be guided by someone who sounds like a Navy Seal training me for a special op's mission. There is a basic rule with mediation guidance; you can't take anyone anywhere you haven't first been yourself.
The guide completely got in the way and misses the point. Just when you thought you'd be able to have a little peaceful interlude, up he pops again to "guide" you up the hill for your mission.
I find it difficult to believe that this has been released by Audible and their partner Aadaptiv.

Hard to use on Ipods

I liked this product, but it is extremely hard to just use casually on an Ipod, as the meta data list every chapter as "Chapter 1" and no other explaination as to what each one is, so on my ipod with all 20 episodes loaded it reads as 1 book with 20 "Chapter 1" titles in it.

Narration and style work for me

I have a very hard time keeping my mind from wandering during many guided meditations, so the narration that bothers other reviewers I find very helpful. I don't find Caesar's voice irritating at all - he's positive and soothing rather than soporific. I have wanted to start a meditation practice for a long time and haven't been successful. I'm more hopeful about this approach than any of the others I've tried. Giving it 4 stars for now until I get into it further.

Different

First off, I love Ceasar's voice. Very nice. But, I don't feel like it varies enough on different meditations. It seems to focus more on extending the inhale and exhale more and more each session instead of focusing on different styles of mediation, mindfulness, 5 senses, visualization, thought, body. I'm not done yet. But, the emphasis through the entire session so far on each focuses on the breath and extending the breathing from 4 seconds to 5 to 6. There was mention of some other things, but then it was like it was over and I missed it or something.
I personally didn't find them awful at all as some reviews indicate, just repetitive. Ceasar's voice is more energetic, not up beat per se, but somehow energetic. And, I found it great to do after a workout. I do like to do a calming meditation after a workout and often find the more "soothing, slow speech" to slow and too low energy after a workout. My only issue is the heavy emphasis on breathing and deeper and deeper breathing as you go to each new session. While many, if not all, usually start out focusing on breathing, after 3-5 minutes they usually will move on to something else. And, I tend to jump around to what feels right for me in the moment. Sometimes breathing won't focus my mind so I go to the senses or body awareness, or something. But, I totally loved Ceasar's voice and could really listen to him speak nonsense all day. And, I thought he had the perfect tone and voice for an after workout meditation. Usually in a live workout class with a short ending meditation the instructor sounds about like him. It helps bring everyone back down to calm, but it's not the calm almost sleep voice. Not that I mind that either, but not after a workout.

It works for some!

One of the few guided meditations I could actually get through.
No personal complaints over the voice, or the performance. It was not another creepy gravely sounding older white guy with too much spit in his mouth behind a microphone creating white noise in the background.
And the reminders were placed well. If you did not need it every 2minutes, then you probably should not be using what I thought was considered a beginners meditation program. Don't be so silly in the comments. Ha
