For many years, I have been helping my clients with meditation, guided imagery and relaxation exercises. The benefits of these practices are well documented; this album was born from the results I have seen in my private practice, in conjunction with neuro-scientific evidence. However, because meditation is often associated with Eastern religious or philosophical implica- tions, clients asked me to create custom recordings that are religiously and philosophically “neutral.” I therefore decided to “go-pro” and record in a studio with professional engineering. Special thanks are due to my very dear friend and colleague, Mashi Benzaquen, LCSW for her overall assistance on this project. I am grateful to my husband, Louis Wallen and several dear friends and colleagues whose combined efforts have made this album possible. Most significantly, I want to thank my parents, who were both healers and motivators -- Dr. and Mrs. Samuel Shatkin, of blessed memory. As they look down from on high at the fulfillment of this project, I acknowledge the gifts they bestowed upon me that have been brought together in this tightly-wrapped beautiful, health- promoting package. My dear mother, Joan Ellis Shatkin -- Chana bas Michoel, of blessed memory, to whom this volume is dedicated, encouraged my quest for excellence in these projects, and lived vicariously through them. She was a maverick and leader, undaunted by opposition in pursuit of her upright goals for the communal good. May G-d bless her soul and her influence in my life. With sincere gratitude, I hope you enjoy this album as much I enjoyed creating it for you, and I wish you health and success in your continued personal growth. My dear reader and listener, this project was inspired by you and is designed for you . When you master your personal practice of relaxation and meditation, you will live with greater clarity, calm and newfound joy. No matter what happens to challenge you, you will have a secure and mindful process through which to channel and overcome your obstacles.
