  • Summary

  • Sound baths are full-body listening experiences that calm the mind and body with resonant instruments like tuning forks and crystal bowls.

    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.

    This is an Audible Original Podcast. Free for members. When you add Sound Baths from Audible Sleep to your library, you'll receive all previous episodes and will continue to receive new ones as they're released.

Wildly annoying intros spoil everything

These recordings are rendered virtually useless because Audible, in their infinite wisdom, stuck an overloud intro in the same "chapter". So if you're planning to listen to them in a sequence, or to the same one in a loop, you end up getting jarred out of the experience again and again.

Disturbing sounds

I found these sounds very disturbing and annoying, it didn't work for me I'm afraid.

Unpleasant

I've only tried three chapters and they were all unpleasant: two of them had a very low sound and the author's voice was too loud in comparison, awakening (when not making you jump) at the beginning of the chapters. The third chapter had the music even louder than the voice and it was extremely annoying. It was the sound of forks and it was piercing my head. Definitely not something for bedtime.

Great Little free resource

It's a sound bath, it is meant to sound this way, learn to relax and embrace. Great free resource to aid calming breathing and relax before sleep. Thanks

Dissonant sounds.

Most tracks are too dissonant to encourage sleep. There's a time and a place for dissonance - bedtime is not it.

THIS IS A SOUND BATH

Sound Baths are special frequencies. If you are not familiar with the science of them, then do not write a review! Sound baths have healing qualities

Load of rubbish - Zéro stars

Just annoying and headache making tones, then an awful, high pitched sudden, automated American accent saying complete tosh. Thank goodness this was free, But a total waste of time for Audivle producing it Don't bother downloading
