I love this CD! I’ve tried so many tapes and CDs to relax.   I’ve even gone to the Orient to learn to meditate. ‘First, Just Listen’ is the first thing that has worked for me.

Karen Kisslinger has mastered the art of guided relaxation. My health students leave her class relaxed and energized, professing the ability to reduce stress at any time.

I loved hearing Karen’s beautifully produced CD.     I felt so relaxed and in my body following her direction.   I ordered copies to have ready in my office for patients..instant homework for the right people. Great job.

I never knew I could feel so relaxed.   Karen’s relaxation exercise made me feel better for the rest of the day.     It was awesome.
— High school student

In her guided relaxation work, Karen Kisslinger skillfully combines voice, breath, and sound. Those who are new to these exercises experience deep relaxation and   those who   have the patience to use the exercises regularly   experience ever deeper results.
