Review of The Healing Waterfall III
While there are many guided meditation programs available on the market these days, a number of factors make some stand out above the others. Those factors include: concept, writing, narration, pacing, and background music, all of which are given the highest professional consideration in The Healing Waterfall series. All of this adds up to superior production with a level of quality that listeners can feel and benefit from.
For me, it didn’t take long after the meditation started to feel myself becoming immersed in its calm ambiance with the cares of the day beginning to drift away. As mentioned, the soothing music of the piano, keyboards, and flute create the perfect atmosphere for the journey. I also liked little accents like the sound of a rainstick, which enhanced the waterfall imagery. The narrator’s voice has just the right kind of tone and cadence for a guided meditation. I appreciated how detailed the imagery was and the way it draws you into the scene and makes it feel like you are there in this enchanted forest floating in a sacred pool in the company of an angelic presence. By the end, you really feel like you have been somewhere else without leaving your seat.
As mentioned, there are many programs on the market for relaxation, stress relief, etc. yet few are on the level of The Healing Waterfall series, with its blend of exquisite music, imaginative scripts, attention to detail, and degree of professionalism. With an impressive background like he has, it is no surprise that Max Highstein has become a leader in the field of relaxation music and guided meditation. I’m glad to have discovered this series and know exactly where to go when I’m in need of a calm supportive space to unwind in.
