Holosync Meditation - A Review
By Steve Gillman
Over the years I've tried at least six or seven brainwave
entrainment products, starting with Holosync Meditation CDs from
Centerpointe. Both my wife and I used the latter for quite a
while in 2006, so I can report on both of our experiences.
Holosync From Centerpointe
The Centerpointe Research Institute's Holosync program is
widely considered to be one of the best meditation or brainwave
entrainment products out there. As mentioned we first tried their
products several years ago. We bought their "Level One:
Awakening Prologue." It was an interesting experience for
me because this was the first time I had used brainwave entrainment
recordings for meditation, and these are powerful. Meditating
without this technology had never resulted in such easy and deep
states of consciousness.
It really is as easy as popping in one of the CDs, putting
on the headphones and listening while sitting comfortably. The
recording does the work to bring you into a deeper state of consciousness.
Although it is not an important point, I particularly liked the
backgrounds, which is the sound of rain on the CD that we started
with, and some Eastern-sounding instrumentals on other ones.
In addition to using them for meditation, I discovered I could
use the CDs as a way to go to sleep at night, or use them for
a "power nap" during the day. All I have to do is lay
down while listening to the recordings. This put me to sleep
the first time I tried it, and they still put me to sleep every
time I use them this way.
For my wife the benefits seemed to go beyond just easier meditation.
After a few weeks of using them, she felt less anxious and stressed,
and more self-aware throughout the day. These effects lasted
even when she stopped using the CDs regularly. We both agree
that they're powerful recordings.
Holosync meditation CDs come with a great guarantee. You can
check out the specifics, but as I recall you get at least several
months to decide if they work for you, and you can get a refund
at any point during that time. We never used the email and phone
support, but I understand that they actually answer the phone
and provide great support by email as well.
Now for the bad news: These are expensive. Even the first
level is much more expensive than the program I recommend below,
and the subsequent levels that Centerpointe recommends get even
pricier. You can spend thousands of dollars if you complete their
entire program (we decided not to buy the more expensive levels).
Still, the quality of their products and support is excellent,
so if you can afford the price I would encourage you to buy Centerpointe's
If you are on a a tighter budget
you might want to check out a program that I found to
be as powerful as Centerpointe's -- The
