I purchased this Meditation CD by Dr Joe Dispenza, after buying and completing Dr Joe's Intensive Workshop, which I followed very thoroughly and felt had much validity. I found the 'Meditation for Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself', almost impossible to work with, partly due to the fact that the music was alarmingly loud and the speaking not condusive to meditation. Because I was interested in Dr Joe Dispenza's work, I had intended to join an Advanced Workshop by him, but due to further research into this I decided against this. Encephalon market Dr Joe very effectively, every marketing strategy is evident; as to suggest quite heavily that money is the main object of these workshop deliveries. When the Advanced Workshop in Costa Brava, Spain became live and I looked to join it, I was met on screen by a blindingly disturbing banner of people jumping up and down with flashing lights, more condusive to a pop concert, that a meditation and healing event. With spaces for 1,400 participants, each paying $2,400 (including 21% vat) in a resort that was out of season, you wonder at that fee. Not to mention hotel fees and travel expenses. Upon further research I discovered that Dr Joe doesn't interact with the audience, doesn't go off script, and I have found no independant evidence of healing taking place. As far as people's brains changing during this event, it's true that the brain will change in any mass croud event, mainpulated by dogma or entertainment; whether this change is permanent of whether any real healing takes place is nowhere evidenced.
Really enjoyed the book it was fascinating and really made me think in different ways. Then as instructed I put the CD in ready to start the guided meditations and it goes straight into week 2 and doesn’t have week one on there for some reason. Very disappointed unfortunately after such an amazing read!
at the end of the meditation, within two seconds a loud intrusive female voice starts talking about other HAY HOUSE items for sale this completely obliterates any relaxation one may have got from the meditation I found the meditation tedious and laborious but that is just my opinion
I tried these meditations very sceptical about the Dr Joe phenomenon, however, I have been pleasantly surprised. If you`re having a tough time, with any part of life then I recommend these meditations. I like his voice, it`s not syrupy like some. There`s soothing background sounds and music. Although, you can stop when you want to, the longer meditation is an hour and half. Even if nothing changes, at least you`ve relaxed for a while. Recommend buying the Break the habit of being yourself, as well.
