reminding all of us about the power of imagery to help

09 Aug
We got this beautiful note in the office last week, reminding all of us about the power of imagery to help with every day issues of self-esteem, confidence, anxiety, depression and personal growth …
Dear Ms. Naparstek,

This isn''t really a question but rather a comment on how very much your guided imagery tapes and CD''s are helping me through a very difficult situation. I''ve been in therapy myself and on medication for depression and anxiety disorder for the past 3 1/2 years now, and I am also working through dysfunctional family issues and really just searching for my true and authentic self and identity. This is an extremely difficult and at times incredibly stressful journey, though one I know is for my own good and greatest possible wellness.

I found your guided imagery programs kinda by accident while browsing the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh''s website for good meditation programs, since I''ve found myself being led in that direction. I''ve borrowed those that apply most to my personal situation and am recommending them to everybody I know who also could benefit from them. With your soothing and very "listenable" voice and the warmth I can feel eminating from you and the very beautiful musical setting for these programs, they reach deep within me to my innermost core and help me to find in myself the strength, confidence, peace, and healing I need to face each new day of my personal journey for Self and wholeness/wellness.

I just received the Health Journeys catalogue in this morning''s mail and can''t wait to place my first order so I can own my own "originals" of these very helpful, life changing programs. Please do keep up the great work you do; what you give of yourself in these programs is very much needed and very greatly appreciated. Thanks for being such a blessing.
