I have been listening to a particular meditation/guided imagery CD for several months and wanted to try another. I found yours "Meditation to Help You Fight Cancer" - I have a breast cancer recurrence and ordered a copy. Unfortunately, I find I can't concentrate on it. My mind keeps wandering away; that doesn't happen with the other CD. I have tried to determine what is the problem; and the best I can come up with is the music is too upbeat to be relaxing for me, and there aren't enough pauses, or they aren't long enough. It's also true that the music is too loud and overpowers the voice. Part of the spoken message also speaks of "creating energy" when, in fact, what I want is to relax and be calm, not more energized.

Is there any chance that you will be producing a CD in the not-too-distant future concerning overcoming phobias?

I have a friend who is 71 and has a chronic condition in his back. He cannot move very fast and must use a walker. I did not see any recommendations for chronic back pain in the Ask BR questions you have previously answered. Do you have a visual meditation or guided imagery audio that would help him?

We hear words like guided imagery, mindfulness, and meditation all the time, but most of us think of them as something abstract, complex, or mysterious. Actually, the essence of all of these immersive techniques involves using a powerful tool available to all of us, though we may not be aware of it. That tool is our awareness. But, the skill we need is the ability to intentionally guide our awareness.

I am having revision knee surgery soon and want to do everything that I can to get through it. The first surgery was very painful and unsuccessful. This time to enhance my recovery and pain control I would like to listen to your meditations/music during surgery.
