Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Highly recommended. Mantell has produced an excellent program that effectively uses her voice, pacing, music to help the audience achieve a state of relaxation. Further, she takes the listeners deeper into the process to show them how they can achieve a more positive and healthy life as they move out of meditation and into the world.”  —Library Journal

“Mantell takes listeners on a gentle journey . . . effortlessly floating worries and stress away.”  —The Los Angeles Times

“Soothing voice and blissful music!”  —Ladies Home Journal

“Soft, lovely music, warm, soothing voice helps the listener achieve a peaceful, relaxed state and feel refreshed and rested afterward.”  —Billboard

“Peaceful imagery gently guides listeners into a calm, meditative state.”  —Weight Watchers Magazine

“Superb relaxation narration . . . well-made, and can facilitate any comprehensive pain program.”  —John D. Loeser, MD, The American Pain Society

Library Journal
Mantell has produced an excellent program for the person who wants exposure to the benefits of guided imagery meditation. The author does not explain anything about the techniques she is using; she obviously expects that some skeptics or novices will need some assurances concerning what they will be doing, and she offers them. For the most part, though, she assumes that the listener is willing to take the plunge and quickly moves into the meditation. Mantell effectively uses her voice, pacing, musical selection, and noninvasive terminology to help the audience achieve a state of relaxation. Further, she takes the listeners deeper into the process to show them how they can achieve a more positive and healthy life as they move out of meditation and into the world. Highly recommended for any library needing a good basic "how to" guide; public and hospital libraries may be particularly interested.--Kathleen Sullivan, Phoenix P.L.
