Editorial Reviews

When someone has done you wrong, the anger and hurt that is caused can only harm you the most. For hypnotherapist Darren Marks, the importance of forgiveness isn't to excuse the actions of the hurtful party, but to open up a space within to allow the healing process to begin. With his soothing voice, which is accompanied by a soundtrack of plangent guitars and rhythmic drumming, Marks provides a meditative experience for listeners to release tensions and relax. Through visualization and focus, Forgiveness is a journey that leads to a fulfilling personal resolution.

Publisher's Summary

Forgiveness and letting go are the greatest healers. After drifting into a relaxed and focused state, "journey" to a place where past hurts inflicted by others or by yourself can be released and resolved. This recording also utilises ancient techniques of rhythm with a rapid drum beat to assist the journey. Although this may sound strange at first it will soon become apparent that the drum beat can be used to help focus, concentrate and stay with the intention of this journey. During vocal sections a slow drum beat sometimes accompanied by guitar, natural sounds and rattles are also used to deepen and enhance the experience.
This recording along with Relax and Recharge was presented to HRH The Prince of Wales when he visited The South East Cancer Help Centre.
In addition to this recording being written and delivered by Darren Marks one of the UKs leading hypnotherapists and NLP practitioners, it also utilizes brainwave entrainment. Brainwave entrainment refers to the brain's electrical response to rhythmic stimulation. When the brain is stimulated through one of our physical senses it emits electrical charges which are converted by the brain into what we see, hear and feel.
When the brain is exposed to rhythm, the rhythm is recreated in the brain in the form of these electrical impulses. If the rhythm is the right speed it can begin to mimic natural brainwave patterns. When this occurs, the brain reacts by synchronizing to the same rhythm. This phenomenon is called the Frequency Following Response (or FFR). FFR is used here to assist people to rapidly access deep meditative states which could take years to master without assistance.

So sorry I cannot do this with the drums

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story could have been good if it wasn't for those drums, the narrator tells us to sit in front of the person that has hurt us and tell him what he has done, ok this should be good, but what the heck, the drums starts, so loud that you cannot concentrate on what you want to say or even feel.

I wish I could have my money back. I love meditation but this one is by far the worst I have ever heard. Drums so loud like this, come on, is this a joke or what. I would not recommend this meditation to my worse enemy.

Sorry, but yack.

Would you ever listen to anything by Darren Marks again?

I would maybe try but not with the drums.

Would you be willing to try another one of Darren Marks’s performances?

If it is free I would maybe, but would not pay a penny for it. It would have to be magical because this one was not worth.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Forgiveness?

The DRUMS, I dont understand, even if it has to do with brainwave and all, no, no, I am sure I am not the only one feeling this. You cannot go on, impossible, the drums are to overpowering.

Any additional comments?

Sorry to be nasty, but he must have paid the editor for having this meditation made into a cd. I am no pro, but I know I could do better. So sorry for the criticsm, but it makes me mad that they let garbage like this on the market.

Simply horrid

Worst hypnotic recording I've ever tried (of roughly 20 tapes used over a period of 35 years). The constant percussive drumming is too loud and distracting. Instead of being something to "focus" on, it was a distraction that kept me from entering a hypnotic state. (About the only thing it "induced" was irritation, a headache, and higher blood-pressure.) Hope the author doesn't use this technique on other tapes... He has a good voice and this could maybe be a fine tape WITHOUT the drumming.

Very relaxing

It is so relaxing that I failed to finish listening to this short audible book repeatedly! Without fail, every single time I fell asleep before the end of it! Not sure whether the forgiveness bit worked though - or maybe I'll just have to try again & stay awake!
