I love this track and continue to use it without headphones for my taiji practice – it is the best track I have experienced yet from iAwake for this purpose.  ~ Kit

Deep Recovery

From the Darkness of Addiction to the Happiness and Freedom of Deep Recovery

Deep Recovery  is a powerful brain entrainment meditation tool that can form an essential part of an ongoing spiritual and healing practice. Deep Recovery  consists of two 33-minute tracks of entrainment designed music created by master composer, Leigh Spusta. The first track features a guided meditation and visualization by John Dupuy that lasts for about 12 minutes. The second track features the same powerful entrainment sounds but without the guided meditation. The guided meditation is designed to take you into the depths where healing and transformation happen.

Let me tell you that this guided meditation left me feeling more open and accepting as a human being. This is going to be great for those in recovery.  ~ Jason Fulgham

Track Details

Track 1 is very helpful for beginning meditators as it has a voice-guided meditation to ease you into your inner work and get you into a deep transformational zone. It is optimal to use Track 1 in the early morning, as it sets a groove for your entire day. Track 1 is a continuous 33-minute track.

Track 2 can be a standalone meditation. Please use either Track 1 or Track 2 as you feel intuitively guided. A good use of Track 2, especially in the early days of your recovery journey, is to listen to this one in the late afternoon or evening, which is often when we crave drugs and alcohol the most. Of course, you can use Track 2 at any time of day when cravings arise as well.

How to Use

Download the iAwake App

First, download the FREE iAwake App, login with your email and all your tracks will be right there. You can stream them, but we’d advise downloading them (from within the app) to ensure an interruption-free experience, and to be able to listen offline.


The Basics

  • Wear good headphones/earbuds as you listen to the tracks, whenever possible, for optimal results.
  • Sit comfortably with your spine straight, but relaxed.
  • Stay hydrated before and after listening – entrainment tracks are stimulating and your body will respond best when it is hydrated properly.


The Science of Entrainment

Today’s neuroscience has taught us that the brain produces different types of brainwaves, such as when we are actively thinking vs. when we are more quietly focused, stressed, in deep meditation, or in the zone. With this brainwave technology, you have access to a training tool that facilitates the creation of specific brainwaves to support your healing and recovery process.

Both Track 1 and Track 2 entrain the brain to a low alpha brainwave state (dynamic 8 – 13 Hz) and a theta brainwave state (dynamic 4-6.5 Hz). These are two extremely useful brainwave states to be entrained to in early recovery, as it is often past trauma, negative conditioning, or negative stories, conscious or unconscious, that we buy into about ourselves or our reality that create the conditions for relapse to occur.

With Deep Recovery, we are given the tool and the opportunity to free ourselves from this limiting baggage from the past that keeps us unhappy and enslaved to our compulsive desires and cravings.

I had a patient come in who has been using the Deep Recovery program as part of our work to recover from an opiate addiction, she’s said it has been instrumental. Every day I see iAwake help my patients, family and friends on so many levels, and better yet I get to watch them grow and heal as they listen and meditate at home. Amazing.  ~ S.A. Certified in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

As a psychotherapist, I meet people who have low self-esteem and limited awareness of their own beauty and potential because of negative life experiences. The combination of brainwave entrainment with the guided meditation provides a path toward healing from abuse, loss, low self-worth, and recovery from addiction-impaired parenting.  ~ Mary Lyles
