Now it’s time to get your input on panic attacks and acute anxiety, our next title to complete.. Please let me know your experiences with this and what you’d like to have on this audio..
Hi there, everyone.

Well, we’ve made all our changes and tweaks to the Parkinson’s audio, including some technical improvements to the sound quality, and now it’s ready for pressing. We can start counting down the 4-6 weeks it will take to produce it.

And now next on my agenda is to create imagery for people suffering from Panic Attacks & Acute Anxiety. As usual, I’m asking for input from people who suffer from this. It helps hugely to hear personal experiences of what it’s like to have to deal with this, what’s most difficult or frustrating, and also what helps or makes things easier. Please feel free to tell me what you’d want to be included - any ideas, images or phrases. It’s not that I’d take them literally, but I like to sift through everything and get a sense of what is most universal and important to people. Please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any thoughts you might have, and thanks in advance.

We also have some spectacular new music from our multitalented musician and composer, Steve Kohn, for this new audio and others - it’s lovely, lush and soothing, with long, slow chords that encourage deep, full breaths... He delivered the goods again.

Next week we’ll be seeing many of you at the renowned Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Spa outside of Pittsburgh for my 9 CEU workshop, Breakthroughs in Healing Trauma: Success through Guided Imagery and the New Therapies. The ConferenceWorks! provides a full description of the workshop and the venue at their website. Don’t forget: our distributors get a hefty discount on the registration for these luxurious weekends, thanks to the generosity of The ConferenceWorks! .

Here is the rest of the TCW schedule:
  • March 31 - April 2 in Long Branch, NJ at the Ocean Place Resort & Spa
  • July 7-9 at Durham, NC at the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club
  • August 25-27 at Phoenix, AZ at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort
This week we’re delighted to be shipping a giant batch of custom labeled Successful Surgery CDs to Kaiser Permanente. The pilot study Brad Larsen did at Kaiser Santa Rosa led to a decision to roll out the program throughout Northern California, thanks to the visionary leadership of David Sobel and Harley Goldberg. (I will forever be grateful to David Sobel, who was the first national expert to endorse my ‘tapes’, back in the day (1990) when no one else would - it was considered far too weird, fruit-loopey and professionally risky. David didn’t know me from a hole in the wall, but he believed in the imagery and he committed to it in public and in print. Now he has lots of company, but he was all by himself in 1990.)

OK, take care and be well!
