Regular readers of this column can imagine my excitement at making this connection. I am in the process of connecting the administration at the rehab center where I work with Patty and Charles in the hopes that we can have a stronger impact on our clients.
I have used Mark’s CD’s in relaxation sessions with my clients and the results are encouraging and unquantified. There is an old adage that says, “Music soothes the savage beast.” Perhaps it is true.)
With no formal guide, the music enhances meditation and relaxation by allowing the soundscapes to be means to ends. The beautiful melodies and light airs will work with all of the healing arts. This set has many uses.
This is Mark’s third set of imagery music. Its strengths are awesome and it is essential to all the healing arts.

CREATING A MAGICAL
GARDEN AND HEALING POND (CD)
A soothing guided journey to inner
By Charlotte Reznick, Ph.D.
This soothing CD is a perfect introduction
to meditation for children and adults alike. Created by
a licensed Educational Psychologist who has been working
with children for 27 years, this is a relaxing trip that
children and adults will enjoy taking together.
The first two tracks are a calming introduction to conscious
breathing, and a gentle muscle relaxation exercise. The
third track is a delightful color meditation which guides
you to visualize a rainbow and fill your body with the light.
Experienced adults will recognize the colors and locations
of the chakras in this meditation, but children will simply
experience the healing properties of each color for themselves.
The fourth track gently guides you to create a magical garden
and healing pond.
Everyone will discover the power of their imagination and
enjoy the inner peace this visualization brings. The first
four tracks provide about thirty minutes of meditation.
The final track continues with ten minutes of relaxing music
Dr. Reznick has a soft warm voice which is perfect for leading
you through the guided meditations; children will feel as
if a loving friend is inviting them to meditate. The
gentle instrumental background music, from Astral Journeys
by Mark Provost, is well suited for meditation.
This is an excellent CD to use before a nap or bedtime,
and can help a child drift off into sleep. It would also
be great to use when a child is sick or agitated, as it
is calming and healing. Teachers and families could use
this CD for a group quiet time. This would also be an excellent
CD for an adult beginning a meditation practice or recovering
from an illness. Highly recommended for all ages.
