How to Do It

Sit in a comfortable armchair with your arms on the armrests and your feet planted on the floor. You can also sit in a traditional Zen kneeling posture with your right hand in your left, but either sitting posture will work. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and ensure that you will not be disturbed for the duration of the audio track. Use stereo headphones with the right earphone in your right ear and the left earphone in your left ear (just to be sure we’re clear) and turn on the track. Make sure you listen at a low volume. Close your eyes, clear your head, and let your mind float freely. Just be. You can count your breaths to focus, counting on the exhale up to ten and then returning to one.

There is no way to do this wrong. If you fall asleep, sleep. If you fixate on something, fixate. It may be helpful to have a notepad nearby for a mind dump if required. The important thing is to make this a daily practice and stick to it. It may also help to do this in the same spot to develop your practice (if possible). Twenty minutes of daily internal practice will make a significant difference in your life. Try to complete seven days of an audio track before moving on. If you cannot complete seven days of consecutive listening, try to listen at least seven days in ten consecutive days before moving to the next week’s track.

At the end of the twelve weeks, continue by alternating Week 12A and 12B weekly. These tracks alternate the stable carrier tone between the right channel and the left channel in order to provide a balanced practice.

Caution: Do not use audio tracks while driving, biking, operating heavy machinery, or doing any task that requires sensory attention. It is also recommended that you do not use these tracks in public or anywhere that requires external environmental awareness.
