Relaxation CD

In the last month I received two great reviews unsolicited from clients on the benefits of my Relaxation CD. One from a long time client and one from a new client of a few months. Both describe how effective the CD has been each and every time they play it. It is different every time and still effective. They put it on when they can’t settle, relax or centre. Or when they can’t get to sleep. One of those clients has been using it now for about three years, and it’s still effective.

So this made me think a little about my humble Relaxation CD. This CD is now eleven years old, and it is still going strong. It was way ahead of its time back then, and still now, to a lesser extent.

I use it myself when I find it hard to centre alone. That’s not too often but it can still happen sometimes. I have it on my iphone and so it’s available anytime I need it.

Does it matter that it’s my voice I’m hearing?
Not in the slightest.
Because it has nothing to do with who is talking but how it’s talking.

I mentioned eleven years ago in the promotional material of this CD on my website (which is still there today)

“Remember: For true relaxation – you do not need music, you do not need nice words. If you think it is the music and nice words that does the relaxation then I can almost guarantee you that whatever CDs you have, I bet you will quickly get bored with them and need to change them often. With this CD you do not need to change the words, or change any music. You can play it many, many times. Eventually you will probably not even listen to the words. As I’ve mentioned, the words are not as important.”

So it is nice to know that many people who have purchased the CD over the years, have proven the point, they still use it and it is still effective, not boring. (In fact I’m thinking of doing a survey soon to find out the exact figure from all the people who have purchased the CD.)

Eleven years ago, the term mindfulness was not as commonly used as it is today. Back then the word was ‘relaxation’, and the word ‘meditation’ was just beginning to be used.

Today the word is ‘mindfulness.’ I like this word. It is a far more accurate description as to what is going on or could go on, when you close your eyes.

Even though my relaxation CD is eleven years old now, I am planning to make a follow up to this program. One that goes deeper still, to another level. I will let you know (if you are on my email list) when this becomes available.

Are you a Meditator?: What it says about you…

The Self Healing Meditation Classes are chugging along nicely at my centre here in Melbourne twice a month. Averaging about 16 people a class. If you are a person who Meditates, what it says about you is this: that you know deep down that you are not your thoughts, that you are something greater andContinue Reading

New Self Healing Meditation Class

The responses so far to this new class have been very positive. People feelings some real differences and shifts. So much so that I have had to run another class this week to accommodate everyone on the waiting list. And that class is almost full too. So, needless to say, I am very happy withContinue Reading

“You’re a Lid Popper!”

At a recent Women’s Trauma Release group I am co-leading one of the participants after her individual session said with a laugh, “George, you are a lid popper!” We all laughed. And I agreed. What a great phrase I thought. A lid popper. The Body Psychotherapy work, (especially the Radix Work) is excellent for helpingContinue Reading

“I never knew that was there!”

This weekend (August 21/22 2010) I just completed running another Energy Body Psychotherapy Workshop with eight amazing participants. (Plus one fantastic assistant.) The bond, safety and caring created by the whole group was beautiful to be part of and experience. And the releases that each and everyone of them freed up in themselves was powerfulContinue Reading

Energy Body Psychotherapy Workshop

Another Energy Body Psychotherapy weekend workshop completed recently that I ran on July 24/25 2010. The workshop was booked out with the maximum of eight people. It went very well. All eight were able to let go and release some very deeply held repressed parts of themselves which stopped them from feeling fully alive andContinue Reading
