Mission Statement

We started The Meditation Podcast in 2006 with a simple Mission: to create an extraordinary meditation experience for people in their everyday lives. And we have been successful in this mission. The Meditation Podcast is the most effective audio meditation available anywhere. We have helped thousands of people overcome seemingly impossible challenges, ranging from chronic pain to insomnia, addiction, and depression. Listening to The Meditation Podcast creates new neural pathways in an altered state of consciousness, literally rewiring your brain.*

Why is The Meditation Podcast so effective?

We have received emails from people all over the world who have suffered from insomnia, anxiety, strokes, emotional losses, and trauma, all of whom have benefitted from our podcast.

Jesse is a certified Reiki master, qigong energy healer, and Theta Healing practitioner. He has been practicing healing arts since his teens – for over 20 years. Using this, along with his extensive background in audio engineering and computer programming, he has developed a unique and proprietary technique for delivering meditations.

Jeane has been practicing healing and meditative arts for fifteen years. She is a licensed minister and spiritual counselor, and has been involved in healing workshops and women's retreats since the early 2000's.

Our podcast is unique because it contains binaural beats in the audio that actually affect the brain waves, inducing a deep state of relaxation, and a brain pattern similar to REM sleep. This has the potential to bring about profound healing.

Why headphones? What are Binaural Beats?

Binaural beats enhance Theta brainwaves in the listener. The Theta-state, similar to REM dreaming, makes the body and mind more receptive to healing, cellular regeneration, and learning, and tends to instill a sense of peace in the listener. The way it works is slightly different tones are sent to the left and right sides. When isolated to the left and right ears, the brain tries to reconcile these slightly different tones, creating a relaxed and trance-like state. We use a special programming language to create custom binaural audio tones for each meditation, and we believe this is key in our podcast being one of the most effective meditation tools available.

You can certainly benefit from listening to the guided meditations on their own – and it won't hurt to listen through speakers in a room. However, to give yourself the most benefit and the best possible experience with The Meditation Podcast, we strongly recommend that you use headphones when listening to these meditations. If your headphones are uncomfortable, try SleepPhones.

Who can use The Meditation Podcast?

This style of meditation is non-denominational, designed to be used in conjunction with – or separate from – any church, temple or any set of religious or spiritual beliefs. While we do sometimes use words and concepts like God, Divine, the Universe, Spirit, and Highest Good, please feel free to simply substitute words and concepts that best align with your own beliefs.
