Publisher's Summary

After instructions as to the appropriate position and situation in which to listen to the audio you are given, you will be encouraged to slow down your breathing mechanism and allow yourself the time to release any tightness or tension in the body. Once the breathing rhythm and a general calm has been established you will be guided through a progressive relaxation procedure, focusing on each part of the body in turn, releasing muscular tension and easing stress while maintaining awareness of a gentle breathing rhythm. With the music and instructions you will drift peacefully into deeper and deeper relaxation.
Once the stage by stage relaxation of the body has been completed, you will be encouraged to imagine yourself lying peacefully on a tropical beach and move into an ever deeper state of relaxation, calmed and pacified.
Finally you will be brought gradually back to a state of wakefulness, rested and refreshed.

Very Relaxing- Until Audible Brands It

I really enjoyed this Relaxtion, I've used it to try and quiet my brain when getting to sleep was a problem, or to use time on an airplane to just mellow out and regroup with my brain cells. However, at the end of roughly 45 minutes, when I'm at my most relaxed, and usually have headphones in, the Audible man suddenly pipes up with "This is Audible!" at a volume nearly twice that of the track. If they append the ending, I can recommend it with 5 stars, no hesistation, it's not weird, religious, etc. just walks you through the thought progess to get your body and brain to just mellow out.

Maybe even 5 star.....

I was a little skeptical about this title, and I first thought the gentlemen's voice seemed a little "overly smooth". But once I stopped thinking and started listening, I was out like a light. My life often resembles the commercial for Adult ADD - non stop stress and interuptions. This audiobook and and a few by Glenn Harrold have helped me work a few "Power Naps" into my week. (It seems that in complete silence my brain continues to make "to do lists", but with this audiobook I calm down much faster.) I often feel more refreshed after one of these sessions than I do after 8 hours of sleep.
