Sounds of Serenity Meditation Music Everyday Meditation: A Mini-Retreat to Calm the Mind & Nourish the Soul
by: KRS Edstrom, M.S. Category: Self Help
40 minutes, 1 CD $16.95
ISBN: 978-886198-19-7

Everyday Meditation: A Mini Retreat to Calm the Mind and Nourish the Soul is the fifth CD in KRS Edstrom's Inner Mastery Series. She uses mindfulness meditation - a nondenominational and nonsectarian practice - as the core technique of the series. The technique allows practitioners to feel and accept the NOW!

It creates a semblance of mindfulness. (Its counterpart in therapy is motivational interviewing. That extends out to Prochaska and DiClemente's Stages of Change and into deeper practices. There are week-long seminars on that subject so it is best to leave now.)

The music, by Jeff Silverman and Jeff Harrington, is sublime and gentle. They have enriched the soundtrack with subtle overtones in the guise of deep drones. The airs weave through, around, above, below and between each other as the soundscape rolls forward gently and steadily. It is like gentle surf, feeding and releasing itself seamlessly. The drones give the atmospheres abstract and ethereal qualities. By itself, it is great space music.

The primary purpose of the music, however, is to enhance KRS's guided meditation. She is absolutely gifted and extremely talented. Her voice is gentle and direct. It is almost as if she knows the souls of her listeners. She does not preach; she teaches. There are no direct references but the entire journey is very spiritual. It allows meditators to look at themselves from the outside. The ability to create such an environment is rare.

This is an essential CD from an exceptional series by an extraordinary lady. KRS stands and practices at the nth level.

Sounds of Serenity Meditation Music Sounds of Serenity: Musical Meditation and Nature's Chorus
by: KRS Edstrom, M.S. Category: Self Help
40:03 minutes, 1 CD $16.95
ISBN: 978-1-886198-20-3

Sounds of Serenity: Musical Meditation and Nature's Chorus is a set of four deeply relaxing pieces collected from the musical accompaniment to KRS Edstrom's Inner Master Series. (This series is a set of six guided-meditation CD's. The focus is on mindfulness meditation.)

This is delicious music that requires focused listening to appreciate its full benefits. Skillful performances give the atmospheres body and depth and orchestral and symphonic timbers. There are some acoustic elements but most of the music "feels" electronic. The atmospheres have strong overtones that facilitate deep meditation and meandering within one's soul.

Such journeys are always meaningful and fulfilling - none more than this one. As the listener gets deeper into this music, they discover new meanings and more paths to follow. The calmness is so underwhelming that it overwhelms.

This set promotes profound exploration of the depths of - well - serenity. The overtones surround the synapses and lull the listener gently into a state of extreme subconsciousness. Meditation takes on new meaning and it is easy to get lost - easier to get found and a smooth ride in every direction.  This is a great CD!      -  Awareness Magazine

by: KRS Edstrom, M.S. Category: Self Help
40 minutes, 1 CD $16.95
ISBN: 978-886198-17-3

KRS Edstrom has developed the Inner Master Series as a set of six CD’s designed to help listeners overcome obstacles through their own inner strengths. Relax Mind & Body helps listeners relax. Conquer Stress helps them, well, conquer stress. (I was particularly excited that one of the testimonials in the liner notes is from a recovering addict.)

It is important to note that KRS Edstrom’s voice is almost the perfect guided-meditation voice. Her gentle sound is relaxing in and of itself. It is steady and consistent with minor fluctuations for emphasis and encouragement.

Jeff Silverman and Jeff Harrington created all the music for these two discs and it is very nice. The mix, by necessity, puts the focus on KRS’ spoken words but that does not render the music extraneous. Appropriately subtle and soft, the sound design incorporates smooth drones of ambiguous pastels and gentle melodies that create their own atmospheres.

It is in this environment that KRS talks to listeners. She does not talk at them — that would be destructive. She sounds like a friend giving suggestions over a cup of coffee or — even better — a cup of chai tea.

There are dozens of guided meditation CD’s on the market. KRS’ directions hit closer to home and are easier to follow than most. These discs come with the highest recommendation.      -  Awareness Magazine

Fly Without Fear: Guided Meditations for a Relaxing Fight
by: KRS Edstrom, M.S. Category: Self Help
73 minutes, 1 CD $16.95
ISBN: 978-886198-14-2

In this day and age where even the most savvy traveler may be wary of getting on a plane, KRS Edstrom has put together the perfect “preflight prepare yourself” meditation CD.

In track one (of 10 total tracks) titled “Dress Rehearsal,” KRS wisely adds background sounds of the hustle and bustle of the airport so a person can learn to stay concentrated and calm as soon as they step out of their car, down to take-off and landing procedures — KRS offers numerous effective breathing techniques and helps you identify and calm down the part of your body in which you might be feeling fear, then stabilizing that feeling to one of serenity.

I wish I had listened to this CD before I left on my previous trip out of town this summer, as I’m sure I would have handled it with far more grace and ease than I did.  At any rate, I strongly recommend this relaxing CD for every seasoned traveler and for the first timer; well worth the ride!     -  Awareness Magazine
