    I really like the sound of Zen 12 audio program. It’s great to find a meditation audio that’s new and ground breaking. Can you really get level 1 for free? That seems like a good deal. Is there also some sort of payment plan or do you need to buy it outright? Either way 48 Mp3 audio series with 12 levels is a good deal.

    • Dave

      Hey Jay, 

      You ARE getting level 1 for free. It is meant to help you see how efffective it is. 

      You are also getting a $50 discount, this means you will have to pay the remaining $37, after the discount, in full.

      I hope I have helped. 🙂

    This sounds like a great tool for beginners to start meditation. I believe everyone should enjoy a 10-15 minute meditation as needed and your program sounds like it helps keep the mind from being distracted as it usually does. The brainwaves are an effective piece to get your mind in zen. I am intrigued and the product is at a great price. I will definitely give it a try and recommend as w! Thank you!

  3. Joe Petruzzi

    Will have to check this out! I am trying to get into meditation, and don’t really know where to start. The nature sounds seems like the route I would go. Does the zen 12 come with a quick starter guide of sorts? Or do I need to figure all of this out myself? Thanks for the review!

    • Dave

      Hey Joe, 

      Yes, zen 12 does come with a quick start guide as well as a user manual and the beginner style called guided meditation where you are walked through everything. 

      I recommend you read the manual and the guide. It will be of great help. It will show you around the system and help you make the most of it. 

  4. Vandana

    This is interesting I’ve never heard of this. When it says Zen meditation, is it actually from Zen buddhism? I practice Vipassana meditation and they say usually not to mix practices so I wonder how this would work as I could use some more benefits for the brain. Thanks for the info.

    • Dave

      Hey Vandana, 

      This zen 12 name is just a brand name but the product itself is not for any specific kind of meditation, except for the guided meditation style tracks.

      The rest are simply there to improve the quality of your meditation sessions, no matter which they are. So don’t worry about the name. 

  5. Dave

    Brain Power was the first thing I read which got my attention here, mainly because the brain and the workings of the mind truly fascinates me.
    I would love to be able to properly meditate as I know the huge benefits one gains from it but each time I’ve tried it, I’ve fallen asleep and that’s obviously not supposed to happen. Would a beginner be able to use this meditation?

    • Dave

      Hey mate, 

      The beauty of zen12 is the technology behind it. 

      When you listen to the tracks, your whole brain will be altered and taken to deep meditative state that won’t get you asleep.

      In fact, it will keep your wakefulness at its best.

      And yes, a beginner can use this program especially the guided meditation style. It is the best for starters.

  6. Alice

    Hmmmm …. not exactly the kind of product I would resort to for relaxation. Or is it? Is meditation a form of relaxation or a means to shake off stress?

    You mentioned a lot of long term benefits with the use of Zen 12 such as peacefulness and calmness and it also boosts your moods. Perhaps I should try it because of my frequent mood swings lately.

    • Dave

      Hey Alice, 

      Perhaps you should listen to the free level 1 of zen 12. Prefarably listen to the relaxation music style and you will be able to make up your mind once you are done.

      This will help you a lot.

  7. Aaron Brown

    This is a very interesting product. When looking for mediation that works, this definitely seems like something I want to try. This is very detailed and answers almost all of my questions. I do have one question for you though, Could you possibly explain more of the long term benefits of this meditation? I’m hoping to hear from you soon, I’m definitely interested in buying this product.

    Thank you.

    • Dave

      Hey Aaron, 

      On the long term, zen 12 is going to help you boost your overall brain power, become much more peaceful and calm, as well as help you master your emotions.

  8. Dr. Carl Welliver

    Being a professional hypnotist for the past 5 years, I am very aware of brainwave entertainment and used it effectively in my practice as well as recommended it to my clients. I am also very familiar with Zen 12 as well as inspire3 all awesome programs. 

    Zen 12 in particular is a great tool for those hoping to utilize meditation to improve just about any area of their life. You have described it just as it really is.

  9. Paul

    I’ve been an avid meditator for many years, it is a gift I give to myself every day. However, I am always looking for new and improved ways of meditating.
    This review has me very interested and the pricing is excellent value.I feel sometimes I need more structure to my meditations and the zen 12 looks like it would give that opportunity.
    Thanks for the interesting insight, it is much appreciated

  10. Carthik

    Thank you, Dave, for sharing this review on Zen12 meditation program. Going by your review, it seems this program is going to be beneficial to beginners as well as experienced meditators.

    I see you’ve mentioned getting benefits from this program. Could you explain how long have you been using this program and what ways this program has helped you and changed your life?

    • Dave

      Hey Carthik, 

      I have been on this program for months.

      And if there is a program I can tell you has been of great help, it is this one.

      I think the benefits really depend on the individual meditating, but overall, everyone who has used it has been very greatful for it and I have seen no complaints about it thus far.

      This system is awesome, I just can’t describe it enough. 

  11. Excelle

    I like to meditate a lot, it is really relaxing. You talked about the 4 styles in the 48 audio clips , I prefer calm music on the background but I would like to know the various durations of the clips.
    I have in past listened to an hour long meditation and it was very soothing, hope the Zen12 is equally same.

    Thanks a lot for your review.

    • Dave

      Hey there,

      Zen 12 is also very soothing, perhaps more than the one hour meditation music you listened to. 🙂

      They are very great. You should listen to first level of the relaxation music style, which is free to get the idea of its profundity. 

  12. Amin

    Hey Dave, 

    I was looking for a program just like this. 

    I want to start meditating and the guided meditation style is going to help me start this off at a good footing. Thanks a lot for the information.

    It has helped me understand the program very and realize  it is the right one for me

    Well done. Wishing you great success.

  13. Oliver

    This post is useful to me as I meditate myself and I’m now interested in this program. The post is presented well with using images of the program and different font sizes. You have done a lot of research into the program and made a thorough explanation of it. Well done!

  14. Anna

    wow I had no clue this thing existed! It looks like it could work … 50$ discount is a lot too (since I am a broke student it is really helpful)! I go through hard anxiety attacks approximately twice a year, and I see how this could be useful…. I’ll give it a try.
    Thanks fo sharing!

  15. Sbirkett

    Zen 12 sounds very interesting. I like to meditate to a 15 minute guided meditation each morning. Today I did a 30-minute meditation on the beach. I firmly believe it is helping me to feel less stressed, happier, and will help me to reach my goals. This type of website is so important not only to individuals but to our society. I feel like we as a nation are at a crossroads. If more people meditated we would have a much more peaceful nation.

    • Dave

      You are right, 

      People need to meditate to improve their peace and well being. It will help us feel more at peace with ourselves and with others. 

  16. Chris

    Mediation is something i took up last year and consider it a part of my life now. This program looks very cool and might br worth a look later down the track or even as a gift. How do you find it? Do you think the price is warrented for something that cna be done and learned on your own? or is there real value to be gained here?

    • Dave

      Hey Cris, 

      Zen 12 is something you want to have when you are meditating. There is so much value to be gained. 

      It sets the pace for you to meditate effectively, block out all the distraction that would otherwise get in the way and even improve your mental experience of meditation as well. 

      Improving the experience of meditation is what made me love it the most. And the styles are deep and efficient.

      If you compare it to other systems or meditating plainly, you will see a huge difference, and how great it really is. 

      Try it out and see for 

  17. Brendon

    I know a handful of people that use mediation daily and they do seem to be calmer and easy through their day in comparison to other people around them.
    That has caught my attention, but I really know nothing about meditation.
    I just read your review on Zen 12 Meditation and I think this might just be a great way to get started, because I want that same peace and harmony in my life!
    Brendon

    • Dave

      Hey Brendon,

      Meditation does help a lot especially if you feel you are always uneasy and stressed, or have any conflict in your ki

      For you, I would encourage using the guided meditation style to start with, it is going to come in hady for you as a starter.

      And then when you get the gist of it, you can go for other styles like nature sounds and relaxation music.

  18. Wilson C.

    Hey Oscar,

    What a good review! This is just what I am looking for!

    Our mind is a very unique organ which is proven to be emmitting 6 distinct types of brainwaves, with intensity differs depending on our activity at that time. I read reports about tuning its frequency can create amazing results in boosting intelligence, focus and overall health.

    I definitely would love to try Zen 12! Cheers!

  19. Michelle

    Great article. I do believe in the power of meditation. For years I did chance and meditations. And in the long run I was able to manifest some very interesting things in my life. So I know that it does work. I just happened to get away from it for a while somehow. And I had forgotten until I read this article that I used to do that. I will be continuing my meditations in the future. Thank you for this great reminder.

    • Dave

      Awesome Michelle!

      It is great to hear the success you have had with meditation. 

      And you are welcome for remembering about it through this article.

  20. Amazon LaShaun

    I’m glad I found this article. I’ve been so stressed lately and a friend, whose opinion I trust very much, recommended meditation and yoga.

    Yoga takes up time, but it’s exercise that I should be doing anyway so it’s fine.

    I don’t have to meditate for hours, so when I saw the part about getting an hour’s worth of meditation in 12 minutes, it caught my attention. Thanks for the great read.

  21. stormystori

    i never knew there was a program that could do this. So do you have to use a certain CD depending on what type of mood you want to be in that day or is it better to listen in order? Also Does the mental illness include being bi-polar because i was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and not sure if this would be good for me or not. Over all i love your explanation of this program i enjoy learning about meditation.

    • Dave

      Hey there, 

      If you are a person who often have shifts in moods, I would recommend you use the relaxation music style to help you calm you down and keep you peaceful and relaxed.

      You can still use it if you are bipolar, it will help reduce the symptoms. And thanks for the nice comment. 

      I am glad I was helpful. 

  22. Dom

    I was curious how many songs or playlists that you get with the $37 purchase of Zen 12.
    Also, I was wondering why people who have had serious head injuries are discouraged from using this program?
    Possible negative side-effects?
    I’m always in the market for improving creativity and boosting focus!

    • Dave

      Hey Dom, 

      As I said, there are 48 CDs in total. Out of them all, there are 12 CDs for 4 styles. 

      That is, 12 CDs for guided meditation to use for 12 months. Then there are other 12 CDs for the other three styles which are white noise, relaxation music and nature sounds. Each style has 12 CDs and you get to use one CD per month.

      So choose the style you love and work with it.

      For the the second question, I have highly discouraged people who have had brain injuries from using it because it will bring more mental issues. 

      The system alters the state of your mind, and it may be dangerous for someone who has had their mind affected by an illness or an injury as their mind is very w

       Even though there are others who got injuries and were treated and are seeing good results with it, it would be best to avoid it if you have not gotten completely well.

      I hope the mist is cleared now.

  23. Leslie

    I enjoyed your review of Zen 12. I agree that it is hard to find an hour or two to try and relax and meditate. This sounds like a great way to do it in 12 minutes. This is something I could manage. You mentioned using it for 12 months. After 12 months would you start at the beginning and repeat the process? And do you have to do it daily or can you use it 3-4 times a week?

    • Dave

      Hey Leslie, 

      When you are done you can always do it from the beginning again. And about the frequency, you should use it whenever you are meditating. 

      If you meditate daily, you can use it daily but if you meditate 3 to 4 times a week, then that is when you should use it. 

  24. Pamela

    Hi Oscardave!
    I meditate quite a bit and I never knew there were certain individuals who shouldn’t meditate on different levels. That is very good to know!
    I think more testimonies should be posted! I like to read other testimonies so I can get a better view of who’s using the produce and how they are feeling about it.

    • Dave

      Hey Pamela, 

      I will try to get more testimonials for you. But generally, the program is great and is the only one which gives the whole entrainment CDs course for the 4 best styles of meditation. 

      That is why I recommend it, hey have put in a lot of effort and sell it for a very affordable price. These guys are just into helping people, not after the money.

      I hope this helps.

  25. Derek

    What an amazing read! The benefits from meditation are definitely profound. 12 minutes of meditation for an hour of deep sleep? That sounds awesome. I’ve heard about Zen 12, but I was skeptical because the price point seemed a bit too high for me. I’m interested into meditating and I think I would need to utilize a guided meditation, which Zen 12 offers! Thanks for such a great review 🙂

  26. Chris

    This is very interesting indeed. Ive been meditating for about a year now and tried a few different variations but never heard of this system nor the language that it uses, such as brain entratainment. Is this relatable to transcindental mediation where a mantra is given that you recite over and over or would the effects be different? Both systems peak my curiousity but transcindental seems fairly pricey and exclusive.

    • Dave

      Hey Chris, 

      Zen 12 is not like transcendental meditation, it helps you do this kind of meditation by getting you into deep meditative states to give you a good meditation experience.

      The thing is brainwave entrainment helps you get quality experience from your meditation sessions by influencing your brain to feel like it is meditating. This way you will be able to get more meditation benefits much faster.

      In short, zen 12 uses brainwave entrainment which will enhance your meditation sessions. It is not a meditation practice. I hope this is clear now. 🙂

  27. Robert

    Good morning to you. Your article was very interesting and informative. Naturally I’ve heard of mediation before but I’ve never heard of Zen 12 or brain entrainment.

    The list of benefits is long and impressive. You mentioned a wide range of health benefits. Could you expand a little more on the specific types health benefits?

    Thanks for sharing and I’ll be waiting for your answer about the types of health benefits.

    • Dave

      Hey Robert, 

      The health benefits of zen 12 are huge and are more felt than can be explained. 🙂

      The major effect you will feel which is super cool is being very calm but very alert and wakeful to what is happening around you. 

      You also feel relaxed but in perfect touch with the environment and your surroundings. And then the other health benefits revolve around these awesome states. 

      I think you will have to listen to it to see exactly what I am saying, with the heaviness of the words I am using.

      I hope this has been helpful. 

  28. Sylvia

    I can testify to this program, Zen 12 meditation, that it really works.

    I am using it myself and have achieved, just one example, to reduce and almost eliminate procrastination.

    Yes, I was really so bad with this issue but now, I do stick to my goal set almost every time.

    I do highly recommend it!

  29. Edwin

    Hello, and thank you for the info you’re putting out regarding this product.
    I admit I’m generally skeptical about this kind of stuff, but, it does sound like a great deal, provided it works.
    Also, seeing your responses to all the questions adds a level of trust.
    I have always desired the benefits of meditation, but, I have failed at it before.
    So, I would like to ask: Would listening regularly be all I need to do in order to see results?
    And, is there a satisfaction guarantee and refund policy in place?
    Thanks!

    • Dave

      Hey Edwin,

      Yes, you only have to listen through it as you meditate to get the results. There is a guarantee and refund policy,  and you can easily get detailed information on these on the main website.

      You can read them as you check out.

      Have a fantastic day.

  30. Prophese Fuentes

    Thank you for sharing your review. I have sleep apnea and was suggested to use a form of mediation to improve my sleep quality so I really do appreciate it. You’ve provided a wealth of information and look forward to trying them out. Its very new to me so but willing to try this to sleep better and wake up well rested.

    • Dave

      Hey Prophese, 

      Youu can also use sleep salon for you particular case, it fits very nicely with your condition and it works more like zen 12.

      Hope this helps. 🙂

  31. GabeTheGreat369

    Wow, appreciate all the info Dave!

    Meditation is something I struggle with as it can be hard to find the time to pull away from all the chaos and get into the zone. We just had our first baby so I do not have too much down time available. Definitely going to be looking into the Zen12 method! Thanks!!

  32. Françoise

    It is really interesting to have such a program. I have been meditating for now 23 years in the silent tradition, which is fine for me, but I would have be interested to see how it feels like. Why does someone under 18 haven’t the necessary mental strength? Wouldn’t you recommend it for students for example ?
    Thank you very much for all this information.
    Kind regards,
    Françoise

    • Dave

      Hey Françoise,

      The thing is, not all students have a problem with this system. It is just that there are students who don’t get the benefits as their bains have not gained enough mental strength to withstand the power of the wave frequencies. 

      And this ends up making them have bad experiences with such programs. If u are super determined to have it for your son or daughter, I would recommend you check with a doctor first. 

  33. Andrey

    Great review, Thanks.

    There is one thing I did not get – you say about 12 months – is it a membership?

    I mean what happens after 12 months, I will have to pay another $xx for next 12 months?

    And did I understand correctly, that I can listen for some samples before I decide to buy?

    Thank you, it is really good review.

    • Dave

      Hey Andrey, 

      It is not a membership program.You will be getting tracks for a whole 12 months all for the same listed price, you won’t have to pay anything else for zen 12 after you have made your purchase.

      I ope this is clear.

  34. sophiafong

    Hi, Dave,
    This is very good products review. I am interesting at the products, Z 12 meditation. It sounds like a yoga with music treatment , isn’t it? People will get much more benefits from the 12 minutes listening per day. The sound of music work with brain waves bring good results for people health. I would like to try sometime. Is this free download whole sections from your website?

    Sophiafang

  35. Steve T

    Sounds like a powerful program, and if it leads to improved motivation, better blood pressure control or improved decision making, it is a great investment. I am curious what changes YOU have experienced with it, and how long it took to see a difference? Did you find that it had specific health effects? In your case, what were they?

    • Dave

      Hey Steve, 

      The benefits I have listed above are exactly what you will be seeing. The other effects I felt are pretty much self explanatory. And I am sure you will see this when you start using it. 🙂

      The time it takes to feel the effects  is somewhere from 4 minutes to 5 minutes. But this depends on many factors which are usually personal. But it should not take more than 5 minutes before you start feeling the difference. 

  36. Lisa

    Since using the Zen-12 system. what benefits have you seen in yourself personally? How long have you been using it? Based on your experience and knowledge of the system, do you know how it works with those that have PTSD in terms of being able to sleep and relax? I have clients with this diagnosis and would love to have something like this that could really help them reduce their stress levels. Have there been any studies done with this product on specific disorders?

    • Dave

      Hey Lisa, 

      Since I started using zen 12, I have been much calmer and controlled in terms of emotions. I also feel this inner peace and harmony as well as a sense of well being which I didn’t have before.

      There are also may other areas in my life that have been improved by this system like wakefulness and bliss , and a lot more others which are self explanatory. 

      About the studies done on it, there is 100 years of scientific study in the method of brain improvement it uses. You will see the whole study in the main website. Be sure to read it. 🙂

      If you only ant to meditate, this program is the best for you. But if you want a system that will help you relax and sleep better, I strongly recommend you use sleep salon. It is the best for sleep and woors just as efficiently as zen 12.

  37. Kiersten

    This sounds like a very interesting program and I really appreciate that you have explained how it works and how it was created. It almost sounds like they reverse engineered the brain! At one point you mentioned CD’s, so I just wanted to double check…is this program available as a download online so that you get immediate access to it?

    • Dave

      Hey Krsiten, 

      The 48 main tracks are in mp3 format. So you will get mmediate access to them once you have checked out. 

      But there are also books and CDs which come with it. These will be sent to you. 

  38. Dagda

    Zen 12 seems like a fantastic way to become more at peace with ones self. I love how you show the benefits of the course from all angles not just from a physical side. The added sounds remind me of a time I went to a meditation retreat and became at peace with myself.

  39. Daniella

    Hi Dave,

    Great article!

    It’s been a while now that I want to do meditation, but I didn’t know where to start. I’ve been told that there are many types of meditation, so I was a bit confused about it. Also, I don’t have much patience and time to sit more than half an hour:) This zen meditation takes only 12 minutes, that’s awesome! It will save me a lot of time!
    Just a question, please. Do you suggest practicing every day to get a good result?
    Thank you in advance!

    • Dave

      Hey Daniella, 

      You don’t have to do it everyday. It is recommended you use when you are meditating. This means, if you meditate daily, then you should use it daily. If it is for a certain number of days, you should use it then.

      If it was up to me, I would say you meditare daily with it, if you can, as you will get to enjoy its benefits on a daily basis. 🙂

      Have a lovely day.

  40. Chandra

    Hi Dave,

    The statement you made in your “About Me” page “The super conscious mind exists and is available to every one of us. You only need to tap into it and let it flow” peaked my curiosity. 

    Figuring out how to tap into it, so that I can become the person that I’d like to be has been a challenge for me. I’ve had some small successes after listening to several meditation tapes and reading the book “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” by Dr. Joseph Murphy. 

    I will also be using zen 12 to see if it can help improve the quality of my meditation sessions. Thanks a lot for this by the way.

    Also, ou mentioned that you’ve developed an exceptionally strange way of talking. What exactly did you mean by that statement (e.g., you speak more intelligently, your vocabulary has expanded, etc.)?

    • Dave

      Hey Chandra, 

      You are welcome and I am sure you will love the great meditative effect you are going to get with zen 12.  

      About the strange way of talking, I have come to see my consciousness hike and my perception of things go deeper. 

      And this has made my words change too, in the sense of the heavy words I now use, the proper explanation of things in a structured order and ability to understand and solve really difficult problems. 

      I hope this helps. 🙂

  41. Mindful Mantra

    Hi Dave,
    This sounds like a great program for all meditators out there. I am a meditator myself, and can see how many advantages this could have!
    Although this sounds great, what is the difference between this and free mindfulness apps?
    I will definitely look into this further!
    Thanks,
    Sophie

    • Dave

      Hey there, 

      There is a huge difference between zen 12 and the free mindfulness and meditation apps out there. 

      First, it has brainwave entrainment, which helps you get easily into deep meditative states which makes your meditation even better and rewarding.

      Second, there are tracks for a whole year which will train your brain to always get into the deep relaxed yet highly alert state naturally when you are meditating. 

      The free apps only entertain for a while but they don’t offer as much value as zen 12. Hope you now 

  42. Arie

    This sounds like an awesome program!

    As someone who would like to learn to feel more relaxed as well as boosting creativity and overall mood, I am definitely now interested in giving this a try after reading your review!

    I think $87 is a great price for this considering the amount of content that comes with it as well as the quality but for $37, I will be sure to check this out

    My question is, what part of this system did you enjoy the most in terms of relaxing and improving your overall mood?

    • Dave

      Hey Arie, 

      The relaxation music version and the nature are the ones that did it for me. I would also encourage you to use then for hiking your moods and getting you super relaxed.

      Cheers. 

  43. Brandon

    I meditate daily using a app but it’s really hard to focus. I personally like having a voice guide me but now that I think about it I never had the chance to experience any other type of meditation. Brain wave meditation sounds exciting and scary at the same time. I am actually worried if its safe around animals and children.

    • Dave

      Hey Brandon, 

      You don’t need to worry. As far as you use it as instructed and as I have shown you in the post, you won’t have any problems. 

      If you also make sure you don’t give it to your children, if they are below 18 years, you can be sure things will go well. 

  44. Diana

    Hi Dave,

    I am definitely going to look into Zen 12. I’ve been hearing for years now how good meditation is and I still haven’t tried it.

    I think what’s holding me back is the fact that I don’t think I am doing it correctly.

    Which is where Zen 12 comes in. And the $50 discount doesn’t sound bad either.

    I’m hoping it will help me relax and improve my creativity. What I’ve been in search of for a while is clarity on what I want out of life and I’m hoping meditation is going to teach me how to do it.

    But first I need to learn how to meditate right?

    Thanks for sharing,
    Diana

      Sure Diana, 

      You need to be perfectly sure you are doing it properly so that you are able to get the benefits it offers.

      And the guided meditation version will help you with that.

      Zen 12 will help you relax and feel energized after each session.

      And if you are consistent with it, you will definitely see a boost in your clarity.

      You are also welcome. Have a great day. 🙂

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for your efforts and sharing all this information. This really looks like something I need in my life right now and I downloaded the free trial. I’ve never done meditation before and being an over thinker my mind is constantly on the go.

    I listened to the relaxation music trial and definitely felt at peace but it was hard to stay focused.

    What is best way to get the most benefit from listening to these?

    Any advise would be appreciated 🙂 thank you

    • Hey Shrestha,

      I recommend making yourself comfortable before you start using it. And you can try things like wearing loose clothing, drinking a glass of water and sitting in a place where there is fresh flowing air.

      After that, I would like you to use the guided meditation style that gives you a great walkthrough of the meditation.

      Follow everything you are told to do and participate in it with your whole mind and heart. Connect with the words you are listening to and then see that you deeply visualize everything.

      This worked for me, and I am sure it will work great for you too.

      I hope this has helped. 🙂
