A Relaxing Invitation to Hypnosis, offers a brief hypnotic experience in a unique style.
Dr. Eric Greenleaf's subtle use of metaphors and everyday language in his practice and training has touched thousands of people throughout the years. One of Dr. Greenleaf's specialties is facilitating communication between the conscious and unconscious mind - enabling people to use more of themselves in their everyday lives.
The Hypnosis Experience includes ''Using the Resources of the Unconscious Mind,'' ''Experiencing Useful Trance,'' ''Tuning to the Body,'' and ''A Pharmacy of Emotions'' - all masterful stuff. We learn much about feelings, the body, healing, relaxation, allowing the mind to take its own lead - all without quite knowing how the learning is taking place.
Do you have all the talent in the world, but are being shut down at work? How are you going to get a promotion if you aren't able to get anything done? How are you supposed to be an effective leader when you have no power?
You can blame your ineffectiveness on the organization you work for. You can blame your coworkers. Or, you can do something about it.
by Dr. John Dyckman
Dr. Eric Greenleaf's inviting CD provides us with a clear guide for the most constant fact of everyday human life, its newness and unpredictability, and how we can best plan to face this newness calmly, flexibly, and successfully. His voice is that of a warm, supportive raconteur, informal yet systematic, colloquial yet well informed, urgent and directive without pushing, repetitive without monotony, like a drumbeat of varying tempos and emphases.
He encourages the listener, most of all, to have faith in self, faith that the will to succeed is nourished both by one's own style of preparation and by confidence that resourcefulness lies in periods of ''time out,'' when one forgets the subject at hand, in order then to return to it with a renewed skill. I recommend this CD to anyone concerned with strengthening the sense of autonomy and competence.
Dr. John Dyckman's entrancing creations are likely to be helpful not only to children with common problems and the parents who are concerned about them, but to anyone who enjoys a good story. We all respond to folk tales: Dr. Dyckman has managed the trick of creating yarns which teach and comfort as they entertain. They also have the ability to bridge cultural differences: his account of ''the caterpillar who didn't want to change'' enchanted audiences when I was recently lecturing in Japan. These stories are not only well crafted, but beautifully delivered . . . I recommend them most highly!
