Review of Mindplace Kasina Mind Meditation System
Mindplace Kasina Mind Meditation System
Welcome to my detailed review of the Kasina Mind Meditation System.
For those of you who already meditate, you might be looking at ways to enhance or deepen your meditation and state of consciousness. For others, you have trouble meditating so have have the opinion that it doesn’t work for you. Or you could be looking at how to actually practice meditation if you already struggle with it, These are all very valid and common for many people who have heard about the benefits of meditation but not sure how to start or continue.
You may have even heard of mind machines but don’t know what they’re all about. That’s okay, because here I will explore and uncover whether the Kasina Mind Meditation System works or not.
Mindplace have been around for many years. The Kasina system is designed to promote a deeper level of meditation. It helps you to focus on the experience of meditation rather than have that mind chatter include itself in your meditation experience.
Here, I examine whether it can do what it claims to do whether it is user friendly. I also offer my recommendation of the system.
The name Kasina comes from Buddhism which means, all complete, whole. It is a meditation technique to describe focussing on a purely external object to produce and develop increased concentration to enhance meditation.
Mindplace have created a meditation system that is drawn from over 10 years of empirical research of light and sounds on the meditation experience. The current Kasina system has programs that are highly effective in creating a powerful meditation experience.

How does it work
It’s very easy to use, simply plug in and play.
The system contains 70 plus preset meditation sessions.
It’s a combination of light stimulation with sound waves that have been shown to reduce depression in teenagers.
The visual aspects involve use of lights stimulates the brain through it’s 255 shades of color. These colors shine to help stimulate the brain in conjunction with the sounds from the programs.
The Aural (sound) backgrounds used incorporate a range of soothing sounds of nature, ambient electronic tapestries to embedded binaural beats and isochoric pulses that are synchronised with the visual experience.
Add Your Own Music
Another feature of the Kasina Mind Machine has is it can convert your choice of music into pulses of colored music. It helps to use music with a beat but not essential. It maps low audio music to blue, mid frequencies to green and high frequencies to red. They work together integrating the pace of the music into colors. This feature helps enhance the mind entrainment programs and thus user experience.
GanzFrames Two Types
Ganzframes are the ‘light’ components of the system.
There are two types.
The DeepVision Ganzfeld display frames give you the eyes open experience. These are the ones that come with the Kasina bundle.
The other frames are designed to be viewed with your eyes closed. These are recommended for other products in the Mindplace range.
If you’ve been struggling with anxiety and depression, you may be considering incorporating a range of options in addition to therapy and possible medication. Hopefully you’ve been seeing a professional to find out where it’s coming from and engaging in the therapeutic process. The Mindplace Kasina Mind Meditation System can help increase the brain’s ability to meditate and attain a deeper level of meditation while improving levels of depression and anxiety.
It takes more than just one strategy to help work through depression and anxiety. I believe in a holistic approach so in addition to working with a therapist, consider incorporating a range of strategies and tools for managing your mental health. This might also include self care and grounding strategies. Another tool that has been shown to have some help in supporting one’s mental health is through meditation using binaural beats and visual stimulation.
For approximately a third of those diagnosed with depression, don’t respond to medication. Additionally, not everyone wants to rely on medication. If this is you it’s important to know that there are alternatives to help shift this experience. Perhaps you could consider a mind machine to help with creating a different state of consciousness while meditating.
Getting into a deep state of relaxation can help calm the senses and increase your focus among other things as outlined below.
- It can create an altered state of consciousness.
- Increases your creativity.
- Stop thoughts and ‘monkey mind’
- Gain a deeper consciousness.
- Helps overcome sleep issues such as insomnia.
- Can also change your mood.
- Help one overcome issues with anger.
- Helps facilitate calm and peace
- Facilitates accelerated learning.
- It can also help those who experience depression and anxiety through helping the brain.
- Boosts your immune system
- Lowered heart rate and blood pressure.
Some find the bundle is too bulky for them to carry around during their daily activities.
Others have shared they can find it overwhelming but when they relaxed and allowed the lights and sound to work they could manage.
A more updated model could include it using bluetooth technology connecting to one’s mobile phone instead of being modeled using an mp3 player which is older technology.
Who It’s Not For
This is not for those who experience seizures due to the stimulating lights that can trigger seizures.
Would I recommend this product? Yes I would.
This is a much more affordable option in comparison to other mind machines on the market such as Pandora Star, Lucia Light, and other such expensive options that are priced in the thousands range.
Meditating is a highly beneficial activity to practice on a daily basis to help calm the senses and work on creating a resilient state of being. By using a mind machine to facilitate meditation, you can enhance your meditation experience and gain a deeper level of consciousness, along with the wide range of benefits mentioned above. For some it can be very challenging to meditate and focus, however the Kasina Mind Meditation System can enhance your meditation and take it to the next level. Namaste.
