- Oct 6, 2009I love all of the names that have been mentioned (especially Bob Dylan) but to meditate I truly need instrumental and no lyrics - it's probably just me.My friend has a CD titled Solitude that's my favorite - you can get thru cdfreedom.com - it's just up my alley and switches my brain from 'racing' to 'quiet' mode. I also know someone who has listened to it and said that when she fights with her husband, if they slip that into the cd player, it's sort of a 'mediator' - a word close to 'meditater' - !

A little Miles Davis in the morning works for me

You're so right. What is interesting is that
different kinds of music "work" for people.
I knew twin brothers that had one chilling
out with classical music and the other with heavy
metal. Both loved the Beatles. Also at different
times vastly different types can be more or less
conducive for meditation. I remember loving Ravi Shankar
and disliking Country. Now I (finally) understand and
Hank Williams can produce just as transcendent
vibrations as any sitar playing. I'm wondering what
you and others find meditative?
Peace and blessings,
