Edelman shares her own painful story and the stories of many other women who, as children or adults, lost their mothers. She explains the stages of grief and adjustment. She considers the secondary effects that can occur: the girl-child filling the lost mother's role at home for father and younger siblings. If you've lost your mother, you no longer have to face it alone. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Ray of Sunlight
I recently picked up this book after initially reading it nearly ten years ago.I figured I was in a different place now and could get something else out of it.Wow! It is as useful to me today as it was ten years ago, but in a different way.I find myself sifting through the material in a more reflective manner now. I needed this book when I found it staring out at me in a bookstore.I was a new mother with a very young child, longing for mother-wit and couldn't find it anywhere.This book gave voice to so much I couldn't express but needed to say.Hope said it for me and it was a blessing to me to recognize that my feelings were not crazy, were in fact normal, and common to others who were daughters of deceased mothers.In reading it ten years later, it is now useful to me in helping me finally speak to others, especially family members,about living with the loss of my mother and the impact of coping with the decisions adults around me made sometimes with erroneous and unfounded assumptions. I know they felt they were dealing as best as they could, and for my own good at the time. But it was based on ignorance and as time went by, that was more and more evident.So this book is helping me to frame my words to talk with others. I Highly Recommend it.

4-0 out of 5 stars opened my eyes...and i'll always be grateful to the author
I think often: people always want to blame their childhood, their parents, i.e., not take responsiblity for their actions - but this isn't a case of blame.

it happened and it changed me forever.
i just never knew there was an explanation for the things i do, ways that i think and act, and my fear of being hurt.

opened my eyes and i will always be grateful to the author.
a MUST read for those women who, before they reached age 20, lost their mother.

5-0 out of 5 stars Only book that addressed MY situation
Every other book on parent loss seems to be about women who have lost their parents well into their adult years. This was the only book that addressed every situation, from losing a mother around infancy and the toddler years to women who lost their mothers when they themselves were mothers.

Reading the first few pages in Barnes and Nobles I found myself tearing up, something that no other book was able to do to me. This book validated all of the emotions I was feeling, and with the author's perspective and research I could actually believe what was being said. This book had more insight than all of the therapists that I've had. Maybe that says something for my therapists, but I think it says something about the author and her work. This book has helped me realise behaviour that I was exhibiting, and although it let me realise it was normal, I developed ways to work through. It also explained some previously inexplicable emotions, such as the fact that before my mother's death I wanted to have a son, and now I'm so determined to have a daughter that I would like to adopt to ensure it. Very interesting ideas put forth in this book, and for myself and another friend that has lost a mother, most ring true. A must for any woman, at any age, that is motherless.

5-0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC - Sensitive - Immensely Helpful!!!
This book helped me in ways I cannot explain.I felt very ALONE and lost -- it showed me that all those feelings were normal, expected, and best of all, temporary.Don't let other people, your employer, society in general make you feel less than whole because you're "not over it yet" -- it is a long process -- it takes more than 3 days, a week, a month, 6 months, a year -- and that is perfectly ok.This book is a true GIFT for a grieving daughter.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Gift from Hope to all motherless women
Kudos to Hope, indeed. Here's one woman who has fulfilled the meaning of her name by giving all us motherless women a voice and a hope for our own well-being.
I have been through a joyful and tearful journey in her book. O, the joy of hearing that all these other women out there have felt and experienced my pain. O, the tears that flowed when I read about myself, my sister and my father.
Every word, every sentence in this book has meaning for me. Finally, after 19 years without my mother (I was 10 when she died of a brain hemorrage), I am able to name the elements of my personality that I have struggled with. And by naming them, I can overcome them. This book has inspired me to find out more about my mother, to find out more about myself. And if self-knowledge isn't a gift, then I don't know what is...
I also do not agree with other reviewers who say that this book makes the motherless daughter a victim; instead, it gives us all power to deal with ourselves and to become stronger, more knowledgeable women.
Read it when you are ready and it will surely enrich your life. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars essential
This is from soundstrue; who are one of the best out there for audio on hard to find world wisdom and workshops from the best known names of current teachers and sages. This is something I added to my libary years ago and really treasure. I study Shamanism and focus on Michael Harner and Sandra Ingermans methods. This Tape set is essential to your libary if you are into symbols and myth also. I wouldnt' part with it! There some deep and profound ideas shared here; about understanding Soul Retrieval. It can only help to grasp the concept. I highly recommend this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great source of comfort
For those who have ever loved and lost a beloved, this guide is a great source of comfort. Sensitive and heartwarming, a wonderful gift when words just are not appropriate. The unconditional love of a pet is such a source of joy, but when we lose them, the heartache can be unbearable. Having been there, I understand how paralyzing grief can be. Arlene Millman...

5-0 out of 5 stars For Those Deeply Grieving, You Have Found Help
Purchasing "Legacies of Love" was perhaps one of the best things I could have done to help me through my grief after losing my precious dog on 3/7/02. It has only been a few weeks, and I listen to Teresa's soothing voice and comforting words every day to get through this "coping" period. Her validation that deep grieving over pet loss is undervalued by many on-lookers and "supporters", but completely normal to those of us grieving, brought a sense of peace during a time when there are so many emotions. Those who have lost their companion(s) and don't know how they will go on, will find Teresa's tapes a tremendous source of comfort and graceful inspiration. In honor of my beloved Pupster, I have purchased two additional sets of "Legacies of Love" to donate to my veterinarian's office in the hope that someone facing deep grief after losing their animal will find as much comfort in her words and wisdom as I have.

4-0 out of 5 stars Soothing
Very soothing voice, tone and message. She really helps the hurt and I am glad I made this purchase. I will share it with others and recommend it. I only wish there was a bit more insight into the religious side of loss - something that I could know was of God. Still - excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Deeply caring message and a practical support tool
This tape provides important comfort and guidance during one of life's
most difficult experiences. Don't miss it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Meaningful, and deaply healing
Haveing lost my beloved mare in a tragic, unexpected accedent, I have been lost and confused. It can be difficult to find someone who understands just how painful it can be to loose a close friend that happens to have four legs.

Teresa understands. She knows what it is like, and her voice is like a soothing guide to recovery. The tapes are filled with information and guidence, as well as personal experiences. I found them to be profoundly healing as I began to accept her death, and learn to get past coping. If you have experienced the death of your animal friend, you won't be sorry you bought this.

This would also be a welcome gift for those who have lost their animal friends. ... Read more

Explore the Energetics of Self-Healing with America's #1 Medical Intuitive

Why do some people heal, while others don't?For more than 20 years, Caroline Myss has studied this question, working with thousands of patients as a "medical intuitive."Now Dr. Myss, author of the breakthrough New York Times bestseller Anatomy of the Spirit, shares the startling truth about the hidden barriers to healing on Why People Don't Heal.In association with Norman Shealy, M.D. (Founder of the American Holistic Medical Association), Caroline Myss has developed a unique approach to the study of "energy anatomy" - the energetic channels that connect mind and spirit - connections which are crucial to the self-healing process.We do not heal, Dr. Myss observes, because we use our illnesses (or "wounds") as a way of gaining intimacy and even personal power over others.This fascinating new look at the energetics of healing will teach you how to get out of the victim mentality that is the first obstacle to wellness.Presented by Dr. Myss in her own words, Why People Don't Heal is the perfect introduction to her ground-breaking work, and reveals the links between personal power and illness, toxic connections to the past, and much more. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Shake the dead moss off and come alive via Myss!
This fabulous lifesaving approach to healing can, and will, bring many people out of the virtual dark ,allowing them to take charge of their lives in a victom free environment, whereby they will emerge into a wholesome and responsible lifestyle, allowing their wildest dreams to be realized. The truth of our being cannot be found in a simple pill injested from the outer realm, as it is indeed an inner journey which must be embarked upon in order to heal completely. Horay for Caroline Myss, we need more brave sorts like her integrating into the medical field to plant seeds of change that will aid all concerned.This book is a joy, and I highly recommend her other books as major tools of self restoration.

5-0 out of 5 stars Turning my life around
As a Christian, I continually struggled with feeling depressed from being a doormat, and being nice because it was "part of the abundant Christian life." Everyone spoke about Christianity as being a joyful, full life that I would love and never want to return to the secular world. Then why did I feel so miserable? Why did the secular world seem so appealing, where I could be as nasty and selfish as I wanted to?

The answer was in "Boundaries". As I read the book, I could identify with something in every chapter. I'm the type of person who will let everyone else step all over me to keep themselves happy. As long as I didn't raise a ruckus, and the peace was kept, everything was okay, right? WRONG! Inside I was always seething with anger, and I was livid with the fact that I had to continually step out of the way for everyone else while they ran right over me.

Through reading this book, I realized that it's OK to set boundaries in all interactions; in fact, I now believe that it would be wrong NOT to set boundaries in things. Slowly but surely, with the help from this book's message, I've been setting boundaries for a happier life that's filled with more peace, joy, and abundance than ever.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Self-Help Guide for men & women of all ages
I found Boundaries to be extremely helpful to me and my family. The authors point to Biblical references for boundary development & enforcement. The authors also illustrate real-life examples of people who have boundary issues and give practical advice on how to resolve conflicts in all relationships...parent-child, spouse-spouse, friend-friend, etc. I firmly believe that this book is vital for people who desire to have Godly, healthy relationships. When my children are mature enough to read & understand this book, I will definitely encourage them to read it. I believe that it will be helpful for my children as they prepare for adulthood and also as they begin searching for a mate. I highly recommend this book for everyone who is in the midst of relationship trials & tribulations.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT!
This book gives one the TOOLS to build healthy boundaries. It's a virtual Home Depot of psychology and living.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great guide to understanding and applying boundaries
This book provided a clear and thourough exploration into the concept of boundaries. As a former member of a christian cult I found it a very helpful guide in healing and re-learning the concept of setting biblical boundaries. Many religions (and people in general) may be threatened by this concept because of their need to control others. Even if you do not consider yourself religious this book is a good guide for anyone who needs to understand and apply the concept of boundaries in their life.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent even with the "god" stuff
This book dramatically changed my life and I only made it through chapter 5. I have since recommended it to many people that are looking to actively make positive changes in their lives. This book is obviously written for Christians but it is great for the non-believer as well. I'm an atheist and I just skipped over the religious dialogue and made parallels as best I could.

They treat self-help as it should be treated. There are no "victims" in this book and no blame shifting. The authors make a strong point that change must come from within and only with strong personal conviction and action is it going to happen. Very powerful read. ... Read more

Book Description

"Now Coach K reveals his personal principles for leadership, from dealing with adversity in life or on the basketball court, to taking responsibility for your actions, to learning how to trust your heartfelt instincts in times of trouble. The result is a book that shows how you can be successful in any leadership challenges you face.

LEADING WITH THE HEART chronicles Coach K's background in a Polish Chicago neighborhood, where he was guided by parents who demanded honesty and integrity. From his days at the U.S. Military Academy playing under Coach Bobby Knight, Krzyzewski first learned that coaching meant more than showing players what to do and how to do it. It meant building an emotional bond of trust that gives his players the confidence and freedom to succeed both on and off the court. From his tenure as the Duke head coach, Coach K illustrates his leadership insights and shows you how to:

Summon the courage to endure adversity and critics--follow through with your plans and commitments, even when everyone else is saying you can't do it.

Learn how to think on your feet--a leader has to come in with a great game plan but must know when to improvise and make adjustments.

Take responsibility for how your team performs--if you're a stickler for excellence, then winning will be a natural by-product.

Give your players time and attention--commit to giving them 100 percent of your focus and they'll commit 100 percent of their effort. An inspiring look into the heart and mind of an extraordinary leader, LEADING WITH THE HEART is about bringing out the best and demanding the best--from ourselves, from those around us, and from any organization that is playing to win today." ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Steps to a Dream
My stepdaughter decided she wanted to go to Duke at the age of six, when she fell in love with Bobby Hurley's vibrant playing style. As a result, we've watched the growth of Duke's men and women's basketball programs over the years. Recently, we took my stepdaughter, now sixteen, to see the campus and what do you know; there in Cameron Indoor Stadium was Coach K with about 250 young men for basketball camp. We bought the book on the way out and I read the entire book in one day.

This book appeals on several levels. For a teenager, it can be a road map to help reach a dream. Coach K describes what he looks for in prospective players and his combination of talent, respect for authority and coachability clearly distinguish any promising athelete. However, they are equally hallmarks of the best entry level professsionals in business.

Coach K's use of the phases in a season work very well as a framework to build his ideas on. The analogies to business situations, which he makes from time to time, are inescapable for anyone who leans to team based leadership styles.

In our work, this book will become the basis for a team building exercise to help launch a new team and a new business.

I strongly recommend reading the book and sharing it with your team and your kids. It will be a great discussion source for both groups you need to communicate with.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book in all regards
I graduated from Duke in 68 and am an avowed fan of Coach K.However, I've hit a rut in my reading recently, can't find anything that seems stimulatiing or interesting.I was afraid this book would just be another of those "smaltzy" rah rah type of books that coaches(and usually someone else write), but I was happily surprised. It is really worth everyones attention, whether to motivate a business person or anyone on how to live ones life. The usual blah blahing about excellence is pretty much left out, thank goodness, and the book is full of very helpful aphorisms about what priorities to put first and how to lead a wholesome and successful life,even if you don't have a jump shot.Coach K comes across as really honest and sincere.I can't stand phonies and really was pleasantly surprised by the book. Lots of real life anecdotes about games, players, situations and how to take defeat.Truly inspirational from a superb leader. For sports fans, look what he did with the team of mostly freshman this year, way beyond anyones expectations.He uses his heart a lot, but also his head.You can also read and skip around in the book, its not like a novel.Again, his repeated emphasis on how to deal with defeat and failure shows true wisdom, far beyond that of most college coaches. I remember the tonge in cheek defintion of a college basketball coach by a player once."you have to be a little bit crazy to base your career on someone else's jump shot." Coach K is crazy like a fox.

3-0 out of 5 stars More about basketball and coaching than leadership
As one who is interested in leadership development, I was disapointed in this book. For those of you who are coaches of athletic teams this book will be usefull. For those who are looking at leadership for business, government etc, there are likely better books out there that cover the subject minus the glory of the Duke basketball team.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Motivational!
Let me first preface this by saying I'm a huge Duke fan...
now, let me tell you that if you are in any position of leadership, this is a must-read! Coach K's outlook on leadership is very positive and easy to work into any type of job. I even found things to use while teaching 2nd graders!
If you are anti-Duke, you may be put off to references to past players, but the leadership ideas are so valuable! If you have ever read Pat Riley's book on leadership and enjoyed it, you will definitely enjoy this one!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply phenomenal
One of the few "good guys" in college basketball, Coach K always seems to have two things in common that are usually mutually exclusive in college sports - a superlative record of winning & more importantly, a superlative family atmosphere. Too many times in both college and in business we hear of two types of coaches and managers - the overly soft players coach or the motivate by fear authoritarian type. Seldom have we seen a coach succeed at such a high level who, through a tireless work ethic, has engendered such indelible values as trust, personal responsibility, honesty, teamwork, the ability to laugh at one's mistakes, selflessness, & a genuine love for those on your team as if they were your family.

This is, as opposed to a memoir, a leadership book - one that everyone who has followed Duke would enjoy and learn from. Coach K reveals his secrets to motivating players, his core values, how to deal with adversity, how to maintain a level of excellence, & what it takes to get to the top - in sports, business, and in life. Coach K chronicles humorous and educational anecdotal stories with his players such as Chris Collins, Christian Laettner, Bobby Hurley, Grant Hill, Elton Brand, Jeff Capel, Danny Ferry, Trajan Langdon, Wojo, Johnny Dawkins, & Shane Battier to name a few that helped mold them into not only great players on the court, but more importantly, great leaders off of the court. The audio version is especially poignant and well read. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Very Hard Tape To Get Into!
I found this tape to be more of the ancient times, then anything. He really doesn't take you into any real type of meditation and really was not interesting at all to me to even keep my attention up. The only good part of the whole tape was at the end, when he can really make you laugh yourself silly, other than that this tape was not helpful to me at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great instructive tape, but didn't quite work for me.
Alan Watts has a very soothing voice. I found that when I listened to him talk on the tape about how to meditate that I was able to achieve reasonable relaxation. However, I never truly reached a true meditative state while trying to meditate on my own. I have since switched to a yoga/meditation routine that works much better for me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Watts
This was my first experience with Alan Watts, & after this I read all his works & have heard all of his talking shows. This is a great piece of Watts.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Insights
This tape gave me great insight into meditation, particularly the use of chants. I alternate between using this and using Joyce Levine's tape on Meditation that uses the chakra system. The balance keeps me in tune with myself

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
This audiocassette is superb. An excellent tool for learning proper meditation along with his articulate way of expressing himself and his sophisticated sounding British accent all work in nicely. The only ommission that would have been necessary was mentioning Jesus as God as some arrogant concept, he could definitely offend some Christians here and that's not at all what should be discussed, it's his opinion injected unnecessarily, which can ruffle some feathers, is that something he wants to do when he's trying to get people into a proper state of mind to meditate? Aside from that, this tape is brilliant with some of the best meditational techniques that I have actually put into practice and now can say I feel many times better and refreshed. Thank you Alan and God bless you! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It really helped me . . .
I found this book to be very useful and it's one of the best I've read on the subject of relationships. Any woman can benefit from this book whether she's in a relationship or not. Another great book which goes hand in hand with this one is NEVER BE LIED TO. That book helped me to recognize that my husband was cheating in the first place. Then this book helped me to deal with it. I'm so pleased that it came out when it did. Everyone woman should read it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!! I'm Not Going Crazy!!!
For months, I've felt as if I was the only person on earth that has had to go through the lies and deceptions of a Sociopath. And, I felt as if I was the one going nuts because of the rage, anger, hurt, and confusion that I felt inside but could not seem to control. This book really helped put my feelings back into perspective and helped me understand that I'm not going crazy and that my feelings are 'NORMAL' for what I've been through. I love the way that it was written in a language towards healing me from my own inner strengths and was not at all a 'man bashing' book. I recommend this book to any woman that has been deceived and is searching for an understanding. It has helped me realize that my world has not ended, but has begun yet again, with a new shade of sunshine to lead me in the right path of love and relationships!!! Only "I" can control "MY" life!

5-0 out of 5 stars What Lies Ahead.
The author Susan Jacqueline Forward is a licensed clinical social worker (license No. 4665) from Los Angeles, California. She first received her clinical license on May 19, 1975. The licensing board also included this information: "License revoked, revocation stayed, 3 yrs. probation, 90 days suspension effective 12/20/95. Prohibited from representing herself as 'DR' or 'DOCTOR' or any terms set forth in B&P 2902, shall represent herself as 'LCSW.' Probation terminated 7/26/03." She also reportedly obtained a Ph.D. from Kensington University in Glendale, California, counseled Nicole Brown Simpson on two occasions, and has been quoted saying, "I think that Hillary Clinton has become so comfortable with lying and so comfortable with covering up and protecting her and his stature and position that it's very easy for her, and that's pretty scary." I think Susan has lots of common sense. I found her book to be a passion. I especially liked the use of the "Reality Check," which was included with the stories about what lies did to her clients. The first half of the book was so much fun to read that I give it five stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book for help with betrayal
This book is truly a godsend to anyone dealing with the emotional upheaval of betrayal, whether it's infidelity or any other kinds of betrayal. It gives believable scenarios and concrete examples of what you should do in order to free yourself from the burden of dealing with a habitual liar. As to the gentleman who complained about sexism, the author clearly states at the very beginning that the book is written for women. I hope no one is put off my his ridiculous comments -- this book is a jewel!

4-0 out of 5 stars why so defensive?
This book is of enormous help to loving, caring women who are most often the victims of a sociopath. I wonder why some of the customer reviews are so defensive about women being liars too. Everyone can lie, but research shows that far more men than women are sociopaths. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The power of questions
My success got on the fast track as soon as I harnessed the power of questions. Ia sked am questions and pm questions. Stuff works.

I have to admit, I wasn't too excited about my life at first but once I started asking myself, "What could I be excited about" I found reasons to be excited and that led to taking action.

I also enjoyed the interview with Barbara DeAngelis. Great stuff!

5-0 out of 5 stars For Barbara De Angeles fans and people who want LOVE!
I really enjoyed this tape set because of the process of learning how to create better questions and asking them.

What would it be like if you created a set of

5-0 out of 5 stars Vision required
If you are set in your ways and are stubborn than any lesson will be difficult and perhaps impossible. I have listened to the comments stating that Anthony Robbins is merely more than a professor of common sense, and that in part is true. We may listen to these discs and read these books and say to ourselves, "Duh, that's simple." This simple realization made, common sense is something we all have but rarely tap into. We often dispel common sense for a more complicated answer to our troubles. It is often simple, subtle changes to our lives that can make lasting improvement.

While Robbins may seem to perpetuate the same principles, as a reader of his material I can say that each new piece offers new value to the reader. I would say that this is not a regurgitation of previous material but a consolidation of many great works of Robbins.

The index and topics are well organized helpful and well laid out. The CD's make a great filler for a long road trip and are only cerebral enough to engage those interested in change. Robbin's subtle yet substantial presence may be worthless to the skeptics and those who are not genuinely interested in change.

I give this a 5 star rating for value and quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars This set makes me energized and happier....
I play these cds when I do housework to keep my mind occupied. It's amazing to me how listening to them can change my attitude and my day completely. Tony can, in about 5 minutes, take me from lonely, depressed, tired, and unmotivated to energized, happy, grateful, solution-oriented, and completely motivated. I am actually on Amazon now to buy some other Tony Robbins product.

Also, to that person that says the cds are worthless because they contain too much "common sense," I say that if you are ever a person who feels ungrateful, overwhelmed, or depressed, then you probably need reminders of these "common sense" principles once in a while.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow
I was very impressed. Well worth the purchase.

2-0 out of 5 stars Read Carefully before you buy it!
I have listen to almost all AR books and definetly he is a very good writer and motivator. he helped me a lot. My comment is not on his work but on this book particulairly.

Before you really go and purchase please do know that this book is no different than other AR books. His theory is based on one 6 steps formulawhich is repeated over and over again. I think he is good in marketing because he covers same formula with different packages. There is nothing new in this book than his first book.

However if you never listened or read his books this is the most comprehensive one. I advise you to purchase an audio version because u get more motivated with his voice. But if you had already other Anthony books, dont waste ur money. Try Power of Now!

4-0 out of 5 stars Master Your Life!
This audio tape program by Anthony Robbins is excellent. Some of the information is familiar...some is off his popular Power Talk series, but hey, sometimes we need to be reminded. However, there is also new information that you won't find on other Robbins programs.

With Lessons in Mastery, you will learn how to:

* Experience true happiness

* Harness yoour decision-making power

* Anticipate and prepare for major life changes

* Commit yourself to daily improvement

* Replace dormant resources with new assets that will improve
the quality of your life.

* Empower yourself to take the right moves at the right time

3-0 out of 5 stars If you can stand his delivery....
Jim has a good message, but his delivery in front of a live audience is VERY annoying how he stretches out words at the end of sentences.

3-0 out of 5 stars Feel good, simple,for self-help beginners
His philosophy probably works best for the young and innocent.This isn't "deep" material.Examples:"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" "books books books". Forrest Gump could've come up w/ these ideas, but Rohn does speak w/ energy and enthusiasm.Calling him "America's Foremost Business Philosopher" is quite a stretch.I'd have to go w/Warren Buffet.Comes across as a bit of a televangelist/used car salesman and his twangy voice is a bit grating.If you have a college education, you can probably pass on this CD.It's mental candy, but sometimes that's what gets us going... I'm on the fence on this one

1-0 out of 5 stars A stunning disappointment
If you took a second to look at some of my other reviews, you will notice that I almost always only comment on books that I think are good to very good. This one is terrible, and that fact needs to be pointed out because of the restrictive return policies on audio recordings. The content is tedious and repetitive, and very, very shallow.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Jim Rohn
This work was my first foray into the world of Jim Rohn.I decided to check him out after learning that Anthony Robbins cut his teeth in Rohn's seminar business.

The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 is because this really is more of an introductory taste of the "You control your destiny" kind of work.It looks like his other works are more specific.This would be a great gift for someone who has never checked out a self-help book or audiotape, and I believe it would especially appeal to the younger set (20's & 30's).

I had no idea what to expect regarding Rohn's delivery style, and I must say he's a delight to listen to.His voice has an unusual cadence that makes listening to him particularly fun.

I plan on checking out Rohn's other works soon.

5-0 out of 5 stars BEST TAPE SET, PERIOD!
Not sure who the one star rater is but I can be he is "broke and embarrassed" listening to Tony Robbins but not Jim Rohn.Repetition is the root of all true learning.I will agree that Brian Tracy ranks right up there with the best but Tony is a waste of time and money.Jim Rohn not only tells you to start a library, he recommends the books to start with.My advice to Mister one star, get a job at Mcdonalds and whistle while you wear the hat, you may make $6/hr.I have over 200 tape series in my corporate library and I clearly rank this as one of the best. ...

ok , I was tired and frustrated when I bought this.. I wanted to lose weight and start exercising but had no motivation and it was raining here DAILY for a month!

I impulse bought this and regretted it 10 minutes later... but decided what's done is done...

When it arrived I listened to it the first night and promptly passed out in 10 minutes (I am an insomniac! so WOW!) -- I woke up at 6am (and NOT a morning person) and couldn't WAIT to listen again...

I had coffee by 6:30am and worked out to my new leslie sansone walking video by 7am

HOLY COW! I listen to it every day...

It's not a magic pill... there are none! but it BOOSTS your motivation and makes you feel good!

I also bought a subliminal tape for eating healthy (Slim something) AND THAT IS AWESOME To listen to while grocery shopping- you feel great and relaxed and buy HEALTHY FOOD!

Book Description

The Most Challenging Spiritual Practice -

Twenty years ago, two spiritual seekers met at a workshop on conscious dying. What happened next is the extraordinary foundation for To Love and Be Loved—a life-changing workshop on what it means to be alive and in love. Together ever since that first day, Stephen and Ondrea Levine poured all of the wisdom they gained from their work with others into the mystery of their own relationship. The result is a beautiful, unexpected unfolding: a teaching that transcends the anguish of existence to show us the way to God—through the darkest nights of our most intimate relationships.

In the depths of our personal pain, the Levines teach, lies the essence of intimacy—with both one another and God. This is why true commitment requires us to "swim across the reservoir of each other’s grief." Stephen and Ondrea show how couples can immerse themselves in the "ocean of compassion" —where they will discover how to overcome fear and replace it with mercy: the key to creativity and love.

Why are so few yogis committed to a human partner? The Levines suggest they haven’t recognized the profound value of the difficult yoga of partnership. Our intimate relationships, they teach, actually contain a complete blueprint for spiritual realization. On To Love and Be Loved, they demonstrate how to decipher and use this map.

The Teachings of a Lifetime - To Love and Be Loved brings you the crowning insights from these pioneering teachers—more than seven hours of useful exercises, meditations, and practical suggestions on five information-packed cassettes. Out of the crucible of their own experience, Stephen and Ondrea Levine point a proven way to true transformation—through the spiritual challenge of your own relationship. ... Read more

Chi Kung Meditations Ken Cohen

Qigong (also spelled chi kung) is the art of using your mind to direct the flow of energy within your body. Chinese medical research confirms that this energy (qi) regulates the immune system, tissue regeneration, and many other aspects of your health. Chi Kung Meditations gives you an information-packed – and economical – introduction to this ancient healing art. You will receive detailed instructions for three basic practices that will enhance your posture, increase awareness control, and teach you how to cleanse your inner organs – with special attention applied to proper breathing techniques. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid and Professional
The Chinese consider the balance of Chi (vital energy) to be crucial to health. This balance can be accomplished through acupuncture, herbal medicine, movement exercise or using the mind. This tape emphasizes "passive", sitting Chi Kung (literally "breath work").

The tape is both instruction and practice. It starts with simple experiments and observations, progresses to breathing meditation applied to the body and mind, finishing with rare and unusual meditations for the spirit.

Ken Cohen is an internationally recognized scholar and teacher and has been ordained as a Taoist priest. His patient guidance makes it easy for the listener to co-ordinate with the presentation.

There are no extravagant claims here, simply a "treasure" map. On the basis of this tape, I would not hesitate to recommend anything done by Ken Cohen. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth it's weight in gold!
As I listened to this tape to and from my job for the last 5 days, I found myself hanging on every word, marveling with every sentence, at the discoveries I was making about myself and my life and yet, at the simplicity of the suggestions Ban Breathnach had to offer to improve my life. I can't think of any woman OR man that wouldn't benefit by listening to or reading this book and taking stock of what they have in their lives and what they THINK they desire. You suddenly find that everything you have is SIMPLY enough and everything else is a marvelous bonus! Oh, but what I would give to be able to express myself the way Sarah Ban Breathnach does. I have already started my Gratitude Journal (I did that the first day!) but before writing this, I purchased the "Simple Abundance Journal of Gratitude" to be able to take advantage of the daily affirmations and inspirational quotes everyday! This book is practical, theoretical spiritual, and ESSENTIAL! And, oh y! es, SIMPLE! To Sarah Ban Brethnach, I am grateful!

2-0 out of 5 stars Already seems dated
I don't know what it is. The book seems to be a classic and that I can understand. But I pulled out the tape to listen to after not having heard it for some time and it seemed so out of date. Some parts were almost embarrassing, and in all was a mishmosh of biblical, new age, and groovy girl advice. A friend of mine borrowed it a while ago and was listening to it in her car. her 10-year-old son said, "Mom, this is so dumb!" Sometimes kids do tell the truth.

5-0 out of 5 stars Life changing/discover who the real you is again
After a bad marriage, I didn't know who I was or what I wanted anymore. This book helped me sort through all of that and rebuild myself back to my original design. I listened to it and stored some very important rules in my mind about keeping the real me alive and now I will never let anyone convince me that I need to change those wonderful characteristics about myself.

1-0 out of 5 stars You mean, people dont know how to be Grateful??
Good thing I did not have to buy money for this...hey, I am grateful, yippee. I went down to the local library and borrowed it and I couldnt wait to hear her ideology. I for one, think it is preposterous that so many women are seeing Sarah as God. She is not wise, or full of wisdom. What is her message? She is saying the same exact thing the New Age and Religious Communities have been saying for at least the last 15 years...be grateful, have gratitude. She acts as if she invented the idea...and what is worse, people are buying it. I cant believe people are buying this tape to learn how to be grateful. I have an idea, and it doesnt cost you anything...learn to say "Please", "thank you", and dont cut people off on the freeway.

1-0 out of 5 stars A New Age Exercise

It is an inward journey, complete with a map that you make of your own wishes to find harmony between your soul and the creative forces of the universe that lie within you. It is a celebration of the "spiritual" over the worldly. It is also a celebration of the self. It gives passing reference to a higher power which seems to be defined by the inner spirit. Christians should stay clear of this. A far better Christian treatment is Richard Fosters book "Freedom of Simplicity". Men should stay clear of this unless they have a very strong feminine side. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Don't Force It
Before using this tape, I was 5'6" and weighed 200 pounds. I would snack from the time I got out of bed until lunch, eat a substantial lunch, snack a little throughout the afternoon, and eat a full dinner. Then I started listening to the subliminal side of the Slim Forever tape as background music while I read books, paid bills, puttered around the house, whatever. I only listened to the self-hypnosis side occasionally. In just a week or so, I noticed that I was eating a "reasonable" (fruit, toast) breakfast and wasn't thinking about lunch until lunchtime. In four months, I lost 40 pounds without even putting forth any effort -- no "dieting," no calorie counting, no packaged foods, no pills, no calisthenics or aerobics. I just began to eat healthily without even paying attention. I didn't weigh myself daily; I didn't use any other aids, tips or plans. I knew by the way my clothes became too big for me that it was working. On the mornings when I did step on the scales to see what number it would show, it was a real esteem booster. When I thought I was "done" with the tape, I loaned it to a friend. Now I find I need it again -- or need some kind of maintenance program. I kept the weight off until I got pregnant, but I'm having trouble getting rid of the "baby fat." Time to order another copy.

5-0 out of 5 stars First Time I've Lost Weight During the Holidays
I bought this tape during the first week of December and listen to side one almost every night. I can't sit in a chair uninterrupted for 30 minutes like the tape says to, so I listen to it after I go to bed. I listen to side two, the subliminal side with music, whenever I can while driving to work, making supper, cleaning house, etc. I'm already a fairly optimistic person, but after the first ten days, I felt SO CHEERFUL! I also lost two pounds. I was amazed; I had always gained weight during the holidays and this was the first time I had actually lost weight. Now it's been three weeks, and I'm noticing an unfamiliar, delightful change in myself. Just today I unthinkingly popped a handful of raisinettes into my mouth, and immediately had no appetite for them. I had to spit them out. Again, I was surprised that I was having these thoughts of not wanting sweets, as I have always craved them. I've lost three more pounds. The tape is not just a bunch of suggestions to eat sensibly; it is powerful persuasion that rewires your brain to eat right without thinking about it, without even trying. I can see why the tape requires six weeks of daily listening, because years of bad eating habits takes awhile to change!

5-0 out of 5 stars Slim Forever
I've found the tape very very pleasant to listen to. I've only listened to the tape for four days but I've noticed a spring in my step, instead of the 'heavy legs feeling' I normally experience because of my job. Also, I'm the personality type to always have some anxiety going on within, but I've noticed that I'm now much more relaxed, and that in itself is really a great feeling. Also, unblieveably, I discovered a piece of fruit in my hand, instead of the routine Hershy bar! Today, when I went out to lunch with my husband, I found myself craving a green salad, so I ordered it and it tasted like the best salad I've ever ate. Something very strange is going on here.........and I'm liking it.

5-0 out of 5 stars So glad I found it again
I had the cassette of Slim Forever for Women many years ago when it first came out. I wore the tape out completely because I loved to listen to it and it truly helped! When the tape was no longer playable I searched for a couple of more years and finally found these new releases. I'm happy that they didn't change a thing and just reproduced it in cd format. The woman's voice that speaks the affirmations is soothing and confident. Highly recommended!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Skepticism borne out
I was encouraged by the other reviews of this CD that I read here and thought I'd give it a shot. I was skeptical that just listening to a CD could actually work on my subconscious mind and help me to eat better and less, but I wanted to be surprised and proven wrong.

I listened to the CD almost every night at bedtime for four weeks, and aside from disturbing my sleep for the first few nights, I noticed no effect whatsoever, much less on my eating habits. Maybe the problem was that the messages weren't really tailored to my personal food issues - these messages mention specific food-related things a couple of times, but they're primarily more related to generic self-esteem issues. I did like that there was enough complexity to the text that I didn't find myself reciting it half a beat ahead of the script, but the messages are still consistent.

Track 1 is an introduction to the CD with publisher information and stuff that you might find in the foreward of a book. Track 2 is a deep-breathing relaxation exercise (which I found to go too fast to allow me to actually take deep breaths, but I have big lungs). Track 3 begins the main text, and I think tracks 4 and maybe 5 are set at points within the audible text. The second half of the CD (tracks maybe 5 and 6) is pleasant enough music (though largely unremarkable) with a sort of breaking wave sound underneath. I'm assuming that's where they somehow mask the messages, though I couldn't distinguish any speech consciously. The entire thing is about an hour long. I don't know what the whole "abridged" notation is about in the item description, as the length seems comparable to the cassette version.

So, it's probably not going to hurt you to listen to this CD, but there's nothing to say that it will definitely help, either. For the price, it might be worth a shot, and buying it used makes it even more worthwhile to at least try. I'll stick with trying to get back on my formal healthy eating plan and keep going to Curves, though. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A tape that really works
I found this tape very relaxing and effective. It's a must for everyone who wants to learn how to focus.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very effective
i found this tape to be effective. i was very disappointed by side A since the music really is not good and i don't see the point to listening to bad music... how is it supposed to increase concentration? however, i use side A whenever i need to focus on something important and i find that in just three days, my concentration is more sharp.

5-0 out of 5 stars Improve your concentration
I bought this tape for my son because he was not doing well in school. His tests showed he had the ability but did not apply himself or show attetion to detail or consentrate. After listening to it every day for 3 weeks and then 2 -3 times a week for 20 minutes his grades did improve and his teacherstated he was showing more effort. I beleive this helps whether it is the suggestions or just the calming effect in our kids hectic lives it does work. I have even tried it and the calming effect is great. Try it you will see!

5-0 out of 5 stars Yes, it works.
Side 1 is hypnosis that really works - it puts me under every time. I've been using it to improve my billiards play, and it's been quite effective in only two weeks. I use it every night. Side 2 is subliminal messages in bad music. I listen to it sometimes, but I don't know if it helps. ... Read more
