Praise for Creating Calm


“Rivka Simmons. . . has obviously done her homework, providing clear instructions and adding new insights that breathe life into each of these stress-relief [meditations]. With her soothing voice and empathetic approach, she does indeed create an atmosphere of calm.

—Yoga Journal


I’ve used similar materials, but this one was the easiest to respond to. The voice is just right. . . It is easy to use and all it really takes is 15 minutes.

—The Sun News


In less time than it takes for a coffee break, listeners can move from stress and tension to peaceful calm and inner harmony. There is no distracting musical score, so listeners can focus more deeply on being completely in the present moment.

—Accent on Tampa Bay


If you’re a beginner trying to establish a meditation practice and have been baffled by what to do or what to expect, try this CD. I wish I would’ve had [it] when I began meditating. It would’ve saved me a lot of frustration.

—Facing North
