    I've been using "Calm and Confident based on EMDR" by Mark Grant for a several weeks now and like it very much. It is the best relaxation CD I've found (I've tried a couple before). He incorporates EMDR (alternating tones in the ears). I've been meditating regularly for a couple of years now, and when I listen to this CD, I go almost immediately into a meditative state. It's just very effective, very relaxing, and I highly recommend it for dealing with stress, which is a huge issue for many of us.

    He also makes a CD for dealing with pain called "Pain Control based on EMDR" which I have not tried (pain is not one of my issues), but based on how much I like the above CD, I think it would be well worth a try.

    He has a nice Australian accent, a very soothing voice and the background music is not yucky!

    EMDR stands for eye movement desensitsation reprocessing. It's an extremely effective therapeutic technique for dealing with trauma, PTSD, anxiety, almost anything. There are thousands of therapists trained in this technique. You can google for more info, or see emdr. com. Instead of alternating eye movement, you can do almost anything which alternately stimulates the left and right sides of the brain to get the same effect, hence the alternating tones in the ears.

    I bought the CD on-line, just google and you'll find it.

    I did EMDR therapy several years ago to deal with abusive childhood issues and it was so much more effective than standard therapy alone. I really wish it had been available when I was 20. It works more quickly than traditional talk therapy, and the results last - you don't have to go over things over and over again.

    I hope you like the CD!
