The Zen 12 Product Overview.

 

A few years ago I came across this wonderful little program that puts your meditation on autopilot.

Why ?  To tell you the honest truth.  I was struggling with meditation so bad I wanted to bang my head against a wall.

Was Zen 12 worth it?

I found Zen 12 and bought it in an instant.

It was easy.  I bought it and got a link in my email to go to the download site and to log in.

I could choose from  4 different types of backgrounds.

Relaxing music – This track has a background of relaxing music if you just want to close your eyes and relax to the meditation. Each level uses different music so you don’t become bored with it.

Sounds of Nature – This track has a background of nature sounds. Each level uses different natural sounds and includes ambient night sounds and a passing thunderstorm.

White Noise – This track has a background of white noise and is particularly useful if you want/have to do your meditation in a fairly noisy environment. The white noise helps block out background noise while still delivering the entrainment.

You don’t need to do anything else, like sit in the lotus position or chant a mantra. Just press play and relax.

You get lifetime support so if you are unsure about any track or level, just shoot them an email. The support is excellent.

Their site is so easy to navigate and find videos to help you.

First I suggest you listen to this part.

There is a Quick Start Guide that is PDF format.

You download and read it.  It explains how to use

Zen 12, when and where.

The User Manual is exactly what it says- the user Manual.

Also a quick read and very easy. It explains how to use each level and what it is for.  It also tells you that the higher the level the longer your meditation becomes.

In other words, at the end of 12 months, your meditation will be a bit longer.  More to the 20 minutes rather than 12 minutes.

1-hour training is a bit long.  I must say I got bored and skipped at about 35 minutes to the part where I could start listening to the meditation.

Karl Moore gave a brief intro to this level (being level 1)

How does it work?

Here is what you do.

Download the first level.

Use a set of earphones and start listening.

In 12 minutes you get the same meditation as a monk who has been doing it for years.  I say this because it takes years to be able to meditate like a monk.  Years of practice and then there is still the chance of not getting it right.

In our world today we live with so much stress and urgency.  We are all searching for a quick fix.

Well, Zen 12 is the closest quick fix you will get.  You can sit and meditate with your earphones on for 12 minutes per day.

If you want to know how mediation works and what it does for your brain.  (Read my article here.)

Why doesn’t everybody meditate?

Now I know I wondered.  If Zen 12 is so good, who doesn’t everybody do it?

For one:  due to certain beliefs.  ( I know I thought it to be some voodoo thing or praying non-stop for a few hours per day.)

Number 2:  People love to make excuses for time.

I now know both of these excuses are canceled out with Zen 12.

#1.  Meditation is not some prayer done for hours.

#2.  What are 12 minutes a day?

Zen 12 is a (guided) audio meditation that uses brainwave entrainment to guide your brain into an ideal state for meditation in only 12 minutes.

They use superior isochronic tones. (computer-generated fast audio pulses.)Pro

Pros:  

  • Good quality sound files.
  • 4 Different tracks to listen to.
  • Only 12 minutes per day.
  • Try the first level for free.
  • 1 Year satisfaction guarantee.
  • The easiest way to meditate.  (that I know of.)

Con’s:

  • Only one drawback.  Later levels in the program do last longer.  (But hey, it is still not bad at 20 minutes a day.)

The final verdict:

Zen12 has genuinely changed my attitude toward meditation.

It’s at the cutting-edge of a new wave of science that is helping us make our lives easier, while still tapping into the natural resources of the human mind.

This is meditation as it should be. Meditation 3.0. Mediation for the microwave age.

Whatever you want to call it, this works — and even though you don’t have to use it every day, I think I just might.

And I’m reminded of Gandhi, who once said: “I’m so busy today, I may have to meditate for two hours, instead of one.”

But forget an hour. How about … twelve minutes?

It’s a  yes for me.
