Meditation is generally considered a safe activity, especially at the beginning levels. At these levels, it is mainly a practice in deep stillness, breathing, and presence. However, advanced levels of meditation can require a willingness to use your powers of concentration in order to engage in self-study and examination. If you feel you might be uncomfortable engaging in this kind of self-examination, then we ask that you do not proceed beyond the beginning level until you feel secure and comfortable with proceeding further.
The hypnosis/meditation recordings are not recommended for people suffering from mental disorders or illness. Always make sure to listen to hypnosis or meditation products in an environment that is safe. Do not listen to these recordings while driving a car or operating any kind of machinery. Also, do not listen to these recordings when drinking alcohol or taking drugs.
We can accept no responsibility for any adverse effects, direct or indirect, that may result from your use of the information on this website and guided meditations or in any of our communications. Furthermore, we make no guarantees that any of the information or practices on this website and guided meditations will function in any particular way for you. By using this website and guided meditations, you agree that you use the information contained herein entirely at your own discretion.
Do not use meditation to replace conventional care, or any form of therapy, or as a reason to postpone seeing a health care provider about a medical problem. There have been rare reports that meditation could cause or worsen symptoms in people with certain psychiatric problems like anxiety and depression. People with existing mental health conditions should speak with their health care providers before starting a meditative practice.
