How It Works

Audio streaming is a way of playing and hearing audio from a computer, phone or tablet, rather than having to download files and store them for playback.
We’re glad you asked! There are three main advantages to streaming audio. First, you don’t have to manage files and instead you just play any track you choose quickly and easily. Second, you can play all QuietSelf audio meditations anytime and anywhere by simply logging into your account on any device you choose. Third – and this is our favorite – you automatically have access to all new content immediately, without having to download and organize files on your computer or device.

Check your mobile plan. If you have unlimited data, then your carrier won’t charge you any extra fees to stream from QuietSelf. If you’re on a limited data plan, then cellular time spent streaming from QuietSelf will be part of your usage. If you are instead using WiFi to access QuietSelf, then your mobile carrier will not assess data usage fees. For QuietSelf, and everything else, always use WiFi when you can. It’s faster and doesn’t hit your data plan.

Hit the triangular Play button on any player. You’ll hear a chime followed by 9 seconds of silence, and then the Experience you’ve chosen will begin.

Paid memberships to QuietSelf provide you with access to the subscriber-only audio in the Library. The Free Membership, on the other hand, entitles you to 3 Experiences selected from the current library. Additionally, while paid Memberships are renewed either annually or monthly, depending on which you choose, Free Memberships never require renewal.

QuietSelf is not a religion of any kind. It’s a membership-based audio subscription service for people who enjoy having a personally fulfilling spiritual experience of living a human life. It’s not built around a religion or any organized belief system or philosophy. We welcome those of any faith, or no particular faith. Our sole purpose is to support individual spiritual evolvement through meditation techniques and introspection. We have no doctrine or dogma. Rather than trying to limit your heart-mind to a small set of possibilities, we’re all about supporting your search for an expansive spiritual experience of life.

So, whenever you see the word “join” on the website, it refers solely to purchasing a paid membership, signing up for free membership, or adding your name to our mailing list. 

If you enjoy New Age books and media, deep meditation,  past life regression, tarot cards, astrology, Viking runes, astral projection, psychic phenomena, magick, theosophy and other kinds of intuition-centered studies and meditation, you’ll feel at home with QuietSelf.

Brain entrainment is a technology whereby the brain naturally aligns and synchronizes itself with brainwave frequencies. Audio brain entrainment uses auditory stimuli to trigger this synchronization. You can read more about QuietSelf brainwave technology here.

Not at all. Hypnosis is a relaxed state of focused awareness electively entered into by the participant. Hypnotherapy is the use by a trained clinician of hypnosis modalities to assist clients and patients in coping positively with life issues. Brain entrainment, on the other hand, is a technology of helping the physical brain (not to be confused with the mind) function at certain frequencies associated with natural physical states such as calmness, dreaminess, alertness, etc. You can read more about QuietSelf brain technology here.

First and foremost, headphones or earbuds are a great way to help you tune out the external world of noise and stress and focus solely on your meditation or introspection. Additionally, some audio brain entrainment can be of benefit only if both ears are engaged with different frequencies. So, we put one frequency in the left headphone and another in the right headphone. As you play the audio through headphones, each ear receives only its frequency, and not the frequency the other ear receives, thereby creating the entrainment process.

Absolutely. If you want the added benefit of some of the brainwave technology (entrainment) that we employ, however, headphones are needed.

Technical Issues

Yes. QuietSelf runs from within an internet browser on any device of your choosing. Using cellular data when you’re on the go will work great, but we do recommend that subscribers use WiFi when possible to save minutes on their mobile plan.
Once you log into your account, you should be able to access the library from any modern computer or device with a browser. We recommend Google’s Chrome browser for PC and Apple’s Safari browser for Mac, but other browsers you might use include Safari (Mac and iOS only) and Mozilla Firefox (Mac and PC). This means that QuietSelf will run on your computer, smartphone, iPad, or other tablet connected to the internet.
Choose “Login” from the menu on either computer or mobile device. Enter your user name or email address, and your password, and then hit the login button. If you’re unable to login, check that you’re using the same email address (or username) and password you used when you signed up.
Not to worry. Choose Login from the menu and then, when the login form comes up, choose “Lost Password?” Fill in the email address you used to make your account, and then hit “Get New Password”. You’ll be emailed a link to reset your password.

The most common reasons for login issues are (1) wrong email/password combo, (2) using your Google app rather than a browser app on mobile, or (3) not being connected to the internet on the computer or device you’re trying to use to access your account.

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USING THE GOOGLE APP TO ACCESS YOUR QUIETSELF ACCOUNT.

A browser app will allow you to stay logged in, speeding up the time it takes to find your desired meditation. Using the Google app to access your QuietSelf subscription will require that you log in again and again for each session. And it can also make it difficult to navigate the site. In every respect, your QuietSelf experience will benefit from using a browser app.

Once there, tap the “share” icon with the upward arrow you’ll see at the bottom middle of the app. Scroll down to tap “Add to Home Screen”. You can choose to rename the QuietSelf icon to anything you’d like, and then tap “Add” in the upper right corner. To find your new home screen icon, just scroll to the last page of your home screen.

On the iOS Chrome app: Access the site as you normally would and log into your account. Then, go to your My QuietSelf page.
