Tresca Weinstein, editor - Yoga Bulletin of the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association (Jun 15, 2007) With wisdom, humor, crystal clarity, and down-to-earth, detailed directions, Bhavani Lorraine Nelson makes meditation not only possible, but also understandable, approachable, and inspiring. A teacher of meditation for 20 years, Bhavani weaves metaphors, stories, and her own experience into an enlightening explanation of the practice—perfect as an introduction for new meditators or as a reminder to experienced practitioners of what it's all about—and then guides us through the practice. The design allows users to customize their experience as far as length and how much guidance they'd like on any particular day.   Robb S. (Black Rock, CT) - Amazon.com (Dec 5, 2007) 5 Stars! Terrific meditation CD for beginners & experienced meditators!Sitting on my cushion listening to Bhavani's soothing voice talk me though a guided meditation session was great. Highly recommended for anyone just beginning to meditate, as well as more experienced meditators as well.   Margaret Burdett (Norwalk, CT USA) - Amazon.com (Nov 26, 2007) 5 Stars! Like having a meditation teacher in the room with you!Bhavani's instruction is simple, clear and beautifully rendered. Since I mostly meditate alone at home, I am grateful for the opportunity to practice with such a skilled teacher. I have tried other guided meditation cds and have found them to be more intrusive than they are supportive. With Meditation Made Possible, Bhavani's delivery and intention blend effortlessly to give me the sense that I am having a private meditation session with her each time I listen. This cd can strengthen your practice whether you're new to meditation or not. Highly recommended!   Gail Ostrow "fullgail" (Bridgeport, CT United States) - Amazon.com (Nov 19, 2007) 5 Stars! Meditation You Can Do!If you are a beginner, Bhavani will have you sitting in no time and wanting to do more. If you are experienced, Bhavani will re-inspire and invigorate your practice. Her voice is angelic and brings you to stillness in a most loving and helpful way. Both the guided and silent meditations are awesome. Listening to Bhavani on CD is almost as good as being in one of her meditation workshops. I hear her voice and I am immediately home again on my cushion. Enjoy!    ”
