• Ultra Meditation
• Dane Spotts
The difficulty with traditional meditation practices is it takes years of concentrated effort to train your brain to redirect its energy into optimal patterns. But there is a way to access higher states of consciousness, without being an expert in meditation. A way to drive your brain into an altered state-automatically, at the push of a button. If you’re skeptical, I understand. However, I wouldn't ask you to make this leap of faith without proving it to yourself and basing your answers on actual personal experience. That's why the Ultra Meditation™ 5-Level Transcendence System was developed.
• Robert A. Monroe
When I play Metamusic, not only do I achieve a meditative state much more quickly, but I feel as if my meditation is more profound than it is when I don't have this soft, unobtrusive yet supportive background. Without Hemi-Sync it generally takes me about seven minutes to get into a meditative state. With Hemi-Sync it takes about two minutes for me to get markedly deeper than I otherwise go.
• Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine
• Herbert Benson, M.D.
... Dr. [Herbert] Benson was approached by young practitioners of Transcendental Meditation who asked him to study their blood pressure. They believed they had lower blood pressures as a result of their meditation practice. This type of study was virtually unheard of at the time, but he did consent, after much deliberation. Robert Keith Wallace and Dr. Benson measured metabolism, blood pressure, heart rate, brain waves, and rate of breathing – both when the subjects sat quietly for 20 minutes and when they meditated for 20 minutes. And what they found was striking.
Through the simple act of changing their thought patterns, the subjects experienced decreases in their metabolism, rate of breathing and heart rate, and had slower brain waves.
