CDs

My CDs are a great way to start taking better care of yourself today! Whether you’re listening to a hypnosis, mindfulness, relaxation or self-compassion CD, you reap the benefits of a proven change strategy without the expense of individual therapy.

All the audio CDs on this page help you travel inward to a focused state, but what happens next distinguishes one from the other. In hypnosis, change happens through “doing,” such as actively imagining overcoming obstacles to healthy eating as a first step to taking charge of your diet. In mindfulness, change comes about through “being,” paying attention without judgment to, among other things, the everyday activities of breathing and eating. Both hypnosis and mindfulness often inspire relaxation, but relaxation training and self-compassion practice measurably improve your health and well-being almost immediately, significantly enhancing the quality, if not the quantity of your life.

Hypnosis, mindfulness, self-compassion and relaxation are four routes to the same destination; traveling any one can make the journey more interesting, more possible. People who take all four routes find the lessons they learn along the way invaluable and complementary.

A CD can help you decide if you need more personalized guidance. Or another CD. To learn about the various CDs and what people are saying about their favorites, read on. Finally, stay tuned to this website: new titles are in the works!

The Self-Compassion Diet
Guided Practices to Lose Weight with Loving-Kindness

The secret to sustainable weight loss isn’t counting calories or depriving yourself at the dinner table. It’s about cultivating awareness and self-acceptance wherever you are. The audio companion to The Self-Compassion Diet book does more than reveal the secret to transforming the way you think and feel about food and your whole self—a shift that, paradoxically, inspires physical change. It guides you through a combination of self-compassion and self-hypnosis practices for a total of 11 transformational weight-loss strategies. If you interested in naturally progressing toward genuine self-acceptance and a healthy, sustainable weight, this audio program is for you. If you’re keen on speeding learning and boosting success, the book and CD or MP3 are a powerful combination.

Mindful Eating Mini Trances
A Jean Fain Hypnosis CD

Typically, people interested in losing weight practice self-hypnosis 15-20 minutes every day. Yet the biggest losers in the hypnotic research literature only practiced five-minute trances. Yup, it was with mini-trances that subjects in the best hypnotic weight loss study lost weight and kept losing for up to two years afterward. The mini-trances on this CD were inspired by that landmark study. After an introduction to hypnosis and healthy eating, listeners have their choice of five mini trances to help them make healthier food choices, meal by meal... snack by snack... day by day. If you’re interested in making weight loss more automatic, if not effortless, this CD is for you. Listen & learn more, plus order a copy at Cdbaby.com
