Customer Reviews

Almost perfect

Once the meditation starts, it’s hard to get past all the talking. Sometimes the entire meditation is the instructor taking every few seconds.

Extremely disappointed

This podcast is titled Sleep and Sleepiness. The title is totally misleading. I'm having a bout of insomnia. Based on the title I was hoping it would help me get to sleep. I was wrong. The introduction portion of the podcast is annoying. The podcast has noting to do with sleep or sleepiness. I am very disappointed.

Best in class

I love the fact that this podcast just does what it simply sets out to do without selling you a product or a personality or a set of believes that have nothing to do with meditation but more to do with a particular business model. I find this podcast to be tremendously relaxing, helpful and a real therapeutic guide to learning to meditation.
I have listened to many podcasts purporting to help learn how to meditate with apps and with guidance from people who have written books and created other products and none of these have been better than this podcast that helps me actually learn the technique and nothing else.
Thank you UCLA!
