A Solution to the Wandering Mind
As a novice eager to learn how to incorporate mindfulness practices into my daily routine to reduce stress, I am grateful to have found this magnificent tool! The first time I listened to it I fell fast asleep to the soothing voice of Denise who successfully allowed me to "detatch from my thoughts!" I love her step by step inward journey which teaches how to be in tune with your body and "be in the moment". She truly captures the essence of mind/body awareness from a place of nonjudgement and curiosity--without fear! Her emphasis on breathing techniques and awareness of sensations in the body, thoughts in your mind, and emotions in the present moment offer a solution to the "wandering mind". Don't miss this opportunity to purchase a unique teaching tool for yourself and others to become more heart centered as you pass through life's stages and continually learn to adapt to a stressful word!

An experienced guide
Many of us practice silent meditation with great benefit, but we can also benefit by being guided. Guided meditation may lead us into new mind-body experiences, or it may be just the comfort we sometimes need. "Creating Calm Within" is the perfect choice for that guidance.

Denise defines the terrain of the mind as an experienced explorer. She accurately describes thought processes, and the gaps between thought. She invites us to seek the quiet moments found between our anxiety about the future and our replaying of the past.

The recordings are personal; it seems as though she is talking just to you. The music is a counterpoint to the pauses in Denise's narration, so that in a sense the pauses are unnoticed. They are just there—giving you the possibility of either complete stillness, or reaching out with your mind to discover something new.

I listen to this CD with confidence because Denise's words come not from repeating some guru's exercises of the mind, but from her personal experience of working as a psychiatric nurse with hospital patients, or workers surrounded by crisis. She truly understands the mind-body connection and is a gentle guide for us, helping us to increase our self-awareness and to move forward in our own mind-body exploration. I highly recommend "Creating Calm Within."

Beautiful Cd, relaxation at its best
Denise has the most soothing voice. I was able to deeply relax and be in the moment as she suggests. Guided meditation is so helpful when I'm stressed and not able to calm my mind. Creating Calm Within is a wonderful solution. Well Done.

Great Meditations!
I am someone who has tried many meditation CDs in the past and found Creating Calm Within to be a unique collection of guided meditations with beautiful language, gentle music, and the ability to create a deep sense of peace and presence in this listener. There are three meditations on the CD: Sitting Breath, Body Awareness, and Heart Centered Affirmations, so you can focus your session according to what your needs are at the moment or how much time you would like to spend. The music is soft and relaxing and does not distract from the guide and cues. There is also extended music at the end for times when you need independent meditation. Overall, I think Pastoor has a wonderful gift for guiding the listener through the difficult task of letting go of outside thoughts and tension and focusing inward, setting intentions to release anxiety and worry and welcome positive thoughts and gratitude instead. It is a CD you will want to listen to again and again to create lasting habits, whether in the morning to start the day with confidence and joy, or in the evening to fall asleep peacefully.

Blissful Rest
I am the kind of person that is always in my mental thoughts planning, organizing and manifesting. The art of "slowing down and being in the moment" has always been a challenge. I am so happy to have the opportunity to listen to "Creating Calm Within". I really enjoy the ability to listen to different types of guidance, depending on my mood and "monkey chatter". Denise's voice resonates with compassion and wisdom, lulling me into a state of peaceful calm. I have to admit that at times, I fall asleep before the meditation is completed, because I become so relaxed. I would suggest this for anyone, whether you are new to meditation, or have a committed meditation practice, you will find this CD to be delightful and helpful. I have also found the guidance and reminder of positive affirmations to be a wonderful way to set the tone for my day!! Great job, two thumbs up for this one.

Clam Achieved -- Without A Pill!
Lately, due to life demands, I have been stressed out and losing sleep. Instead of running to the doctor for some quick-fix but symptom covering medication, I decided to give meditation a go. A few weeks ago, a friend who has attended Denise DeForest Pastoor's wellness presentations, recommended this recording. The first three tracks are nicely paced with clear instructions for each meditation. My favorite track, Body Awareness, helped me relax enough to (finally!) get a good night's sleep. The last track is gentle music (no narration) which I now use to help me unwind as I prepare for bed. Since I got this recording two weeks ago, I notice that I am able to apply the practices when I begin to feel overextended. I am glad for the price of a MP3 download, I am able to ease into my days after some quality sleep!

A Beautiful Timeless Meditation CD--Truly Creates Calm Within!
Denise’s soothing voice and the beautiful accompanying soundtrack make this CD pure joy for anyone, of any age, wanting to learn to meditate or experience a variety of meditation techniques. The simple guidance Denise provides on the first three tracks lead you down a relaxing and mindful path to release your tensions and stress, truly gaining a sense of “calm and peace”, as she describes. The fourth track is all music and the music blends all the right notes—balancing the melodic with soothing, stress-releasing tranquility. This CD is ideal for anyone new to meditation, as well as those seeking to deepen their meditation practice. The pureness of this CD is timeless…my new favorite to “create calm within”.

Life Renewed
After my stress assessment revealed a score of 330, I met with Denise to learn relaxation techniques. I began listening to Creating Calm Within and now practice mindful breathing and centering meditations daily. This CD is a masterful blend of relaxing music and guided meditations that brings a sense of renewed awareness for living in the moment. Now that I've gotten a taste of "being fully present", there is no going back!
