Question:do you listen to music when you meditate?

Asked by bstarr on 4/30/08 1 Answer»


I do—I actually downloaded a sleep meditation that walks me through 30 minutes of relaxation before i actually go to sleep. i find the combination of the music and a soothing voice to be very helpful! You can find a bunch of these on itunes, even meditating podcasts.
