Publisher's Summary

Headphones recommended. 

In this soothing sound bath, Sara Auster gently guides your breath over harmonic tones to stimulate your parasympathetic response, which has been shown to deeply relax your body and nervous system. In order to get the most out of your listening experience, pioneering sound therapist Sara Auster recommends you dim the lights and lie down or sit in a comfortable position with an eye mask and a blanket, silence any alerts or notifications, and use earphones. These things allow you to completely unplug and connect with the present moment to intentionally prepare for sleep. Your body has permission to slow down and rest, to receive without the need to respond or react. Begin your experience by focusing on your breath, then allow yourself to drift into a spacious and dreamlike state. All you have to do is arrive with an open mind and listen. 

Sara Auster is the leading voice in sound bath experiences and considered a master of the form. Sara has been featured in The New York Times, Vogue, Time, and O, The Oprah Magazine, and she has facilitated large-scale, site-specific sound-bath experiences at iconic venues around the world including the Museum of Modern Art, Madison Square Garden, Palais de Tokyo, and SummerStage in Central Park. Her live sound-bath events are celebrated as transformative, therapeutic experiences for balance, relaxation, and well-being. We’re thrilled to be able to bring this unique sound experience to the comfort of your own bedroom for the first time. 

This title is part of the Audible Sleep Collection, exclusive audio experiences created to invite relaxation and sleep. New and free for members.

Grating Background Noise

I tried this twice: once as a normal meditation, and once as sleep assistance. It worked for neither, despite my exhaustion when I was trying to sleep. As I'd breathe as instructed, I'd notice the way my heart was pounding, and breathing became more difficult...

And when I stopped listening to the words and started just listening, I realized that it was the background noise. It sets me on edge. No relaxation or sleep is happening to that noise in my ear.

It's not the instrument itself, but rather the volume relative to the speaker, and the single continuous note.

Not grating enough for me to immediately turn off this track...just grating enough to stoke my insomnia.

Too noisy

I couldn’t relax with the horrible background ‘music’. It was just too noisy and too distracting. I didn’t even last for more than a minute.

relaxation where?!

I downloaded this as stress had reduced me into a puddle today leaving me with a terrible tension headache. The background sounds like a rock band has lost control of their audio system. How can something so LOUD and HARSH be considering relaxing... Made me feel 10x times worse. I couldn't even hear a word the speaker was saying

Terrible

Another terrible audio from the sleep series. This also has the PIECING background sound that drowns out what the narrator was trying to say.
I am wondering if someone reviewed this project before its release.

Bathed in the sounds of florescent lights

Couldn't hear the narrator over the buzzing (music). Made my head hurt within 30 seconds.

Methods to live by

I absolutely love these techniques and they are so easy to follow. My dog even did them and fell into deep undisturbed periods of sleep.

Annoying buzzing sound

The background sounds of buzzing or white noise makes it difficult to hear or concentrate on the voice providing direction for breathing

Grating noise

The chime or keyboard notes are fine, but the grinding white noise attempt overpowers both the voice and chime sounds enough to be distracting, it isn’t the so much as the volume in comparison to the others.

Puts me to sleep

I guess it's not for everyone, judging by the reviews, but I've tried about 1/2 of the sleep selections on audible and this one works the fastest if you do the breathing like she says and I like the background noise. I'm a person that gets caught up in thought & this just works for me if I really just want to go to sleep & not just do stuff until I can't stay awake any longer. A lot of the meditation section is kind of annoying for me because I follow along too hard and stuff moves too fast, (like I thought we were still inhaling, I thought we were still on toes & what am I doing other than thinking about my left foot--wait is this my left foot or my right? My foot kinda hurts now that I'm thinking about it) but this one is easy to follow & the breathing does just put you to sleep. Just thought I'd add some positive comments for this one as a lot seem more negative than it deserves as one of the few good ones.
