Can anyone recommend meditation and relaxation CD's?

I have recently developed some anxiety issues and at this point I don't want to go on antidepressant/antianxiety daily meds. I did have a doctor give me Xanax, and I am still up in the air about that-currently I am only taking 0.25mg at bedtime for sleep help.

Anyway, I see people mentioning meditation and relaxation CD's and things like that. Can anyone recommend any they like?
No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.

I've dealt with anxiety issues all my adolescence. "Issues" is putting it mildly, actually I lived through a year when my heart rate during panic attacks would climb above 200 beats/minute and send me to ER every couple of months or so. There are a lot of different approaches to dealing with anxiety, and just like a diet , once a method is chosen, better to stick with it. Self discipline is just as important as self-love. I chose meditation. It was a journey which started with a self-disciplined approach to how I view my body, I forbade myself to think that anything was random or that anxiety attacks "just happened". Instead, I would tell myself, this is an imbalance - both physical and spiritual, that I am experiencing. The meditation DVD I highly recommend to you is Mandala of Golden Buddha.


Use your favorite calming music or guided meditation. These visualizations are meant to work as mirrors, by making you gaze into a highly balanced, highly mathematical dynamic structures, they project the same ubiquitous balance to your physical and emotional spheres. And they work. Best of luck to you.

I find music really excellent for dealing with anxiety, but I get bored listening to relaxation tapes, personally I love listening to any of the great Classical compositions, by Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Schubert... Beethoven is the best. Especially his Ave Maria. And Pachelbel's Canon! But then, I am a pianist, so maybe it's just me.
