do you have any experience meditating with binaural CDs?
Or even better, which one would you recommend and why? I did my own little research. Hemi-sync Gateway Experience (18 CDs) and Lifeflow (10 CDs) cost approximately the same, holosync (also about 10 or more CDs) is much more expensive.
As far as I understand, Gateway Experience is a set of guided meditations which train the listener to achieve states they call Focus 10, Focus 15, and so on. What is important, passive listening to the tracks is not enough. Users may have some benefit if only they actualy perform excercises. In this sense, listening to GE should be active.
But holosync and lifeflow tracks are entrainment sounds only. Both use the same strategy - they lower the entrainment frequency in succesive steps. By listening to CDs without falling asleep the user is trained to stay alert first in alpha and next in theta states for say, half an hour or more. It looks like passive listening.
I wonder if passive listening to holosync or lifeflow can give the same benefits as active listening to GE.
