Robert Monroe developed the audio technology known as Hemi-Sync®, tones which balance the two sides of the brain. I used the Surgical Support Series in place of anesthesia during my ten years of reconstructive surgery. I still enjoy the CDs for relaxation, pain control, concentration or enjoyment. The non-profit Monroe Institute also has week long residential programs for the exploration of consciousness, which I highly recommend. I put off going for a program until I had finished writing Healing Myself, and wondered why I had waited so long after the first day. Following are some of my favorites from their extensive collection:

Surgical Support Series, Baroque Garden for Concentration, Inner Journey Masterworks, Gaia, Midsummer Night, Sleeping Through the Rain, Energy Walk, Pain Control.

After teaching hatha yoga and tai chi for 20 years, a friend took me to a Kundalini yoga class. After 2 classes, I did not have to go to the chiropractor each week. I took teacher training and advanced classes and practice it daily.
