Add this evidence-based guided imagery to your mental health toolkit to help restore the energy, self-regard, motivation, decisiveness and hope that may have been lost to a bout of depression.
This meditation guides you to re-experience feelings of love, possibility, mastery, and gratitude, offering evocative images of being surrounded by support and encouragement. By listening daily to this simple but powerful experience, you can reawaken feelings of self-love, possibility, and re-engagement with life. You can also listen to a separate track of brief affirmations while you're on the go.
The soothing, hypnotic combination of narrative and music will not compete with psychotherapy, medication, or other self-help approaches. In fact, imagery has been demonstrated in clinical trials to serve as a force multiplier for other therapies. It can also work as a stand-alone boost to mood and attitude, 24/7.
It's written and narrated by mind-body pioneer Belleruth Naparstek, with music by Steven Mark Kohn, and produced by the Cleveland Orchestra's Bruce Gigax. (44 minutes)
