Helps beat insomnia.

This is a soothing gentle tape. it lulls me to sleep when my mind won't shut down. Intro could have been shorter, but excellent overall.

Definitely Relaxing

Relaxation: Sleep Inducing Guided Relaxation by Mike Norgaard does live up to its title. Mike's voice is very soothing and relaxing. My 1 complaint would be that as the chapters switched, the narration pulled me out of my relaxed state a bit, but I was quickly able the get back in the zone.

wonderfull reader - such a relaxing vioce

Any additional comments?

I was given this one,so I could share my thoughts, I must say the narrator has a fantastic realaxing voice, one of the best I have heard for this type of audiobook. (and this is so important !!
The author repeats the same sleep inducing text to different soothing backgrounds, which is good if you haven't fallen asleep, you then have another chance.
The first time I listened this kept me awake because I was wondering what the next one would be .... Now I can choose my favorite and just listen to that chapter.

My only "complaints" would be - 1.That it is too short ( although it does state this in book discription ) and 2. That the blurb at the end wakes you up if you have just fallen asleep !!

Certainly Relaxing

Any additional comments?

This book was nice and relaxing. The narrator has a soothing voice, which is pleasantly deep and even without being monotone. The narration was the most endearing part, which isn't necessarily a knock on a meditation book. It's a nice general guided meditation, nothing complex or flashy. The content was predictable and even keeled.

The only issue I ran into was that the book was not sleep inducing for me. It gives instructions for breathing in and out and counts it out for you. Being given direct instructions while trying to fall asleep made it challenging for me. Plus the counts were slow so it didn't feel natural and comfortable.

I'm probably not going to be using it to get to sleep again. Everyone's different though, so I might recommend it as an alternative to someone who likes to fall asleep listening to nature sounds, music, or audiobooks.

Loved this!

Really great for therapist and counselors alike. Worked really well with the population I serve—especially children from 12+
