Great Introduction to Meditation

I've never written a review on Audible before, but wanted to comment because I am so glad to see Audible offering this sort of content. I had just started meditating and had made a commitment to learn more just before they released this, so the timing was great for me. It felt like a real gift. Over the course of the series, you gradually increase the time you meditate and learn a nice variety of techniques - so you learn what what works best for you. I love Caesar's voice and his whole style/approach.. I encourage you to commit to working through all the classes consistently - try not to judge yourself or the process after the first day or two. As Caesar says, "trust the journey". I was kind of sad to see it end. I am looking forward to trying more of the Aaptiv offerings.

PS, it would be great if they could drop the "Audible Hopes You Enjoyed This Program" at the end - its pretty jarring.

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.

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.

Refreshing and Relatable

At first I was hesitant to check this one out because of the negative ratings and reviews but I decided to form my own opinion... thankfully I did because I found the narrator’s voice to be refreshing and relaxing. As if he was just being himself versus trying to sound caaaaalm. I think he did a great job and that he sounds relatable and human. Give it a listen and form your own opinion ;-)

not recommended

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

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.

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

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.

Not bad

It takes me a few to get set with this narrator , but I keep trying.
