The immersive, calming guided imagery and affirmations on this chemotherapy meditation program provide a sense of peace, control and mastery during a difficult time. Words and music combine to put chemo treatment in a more positive light, offering the central image of a lovely fountain of healing liquid, cleansing and clearing the body, and helping the body's own natural defense system do its work.
Additional suggestions of being surrounded by loving supporters and caring guardians lift spirits and create a sense of protection and safety - also helpful for boosting immune function and generating hope and emotional resilience during a stressful time. A separate track of affirmations in this guided meditation for chemotherapy offer briefer versions of these same empowering images and ideas, for those who prefer their mind-body tools in a briefer format, for use while on the go, and even while driving.
The track list is as follows:
1. Introduction (4:54)
2. Guided Imagery (17:15)
3. Affimations (19:17)
This amazing resource was written and narrated by psychologist and guided imagery, holistic health expert Belleruth Naparstek, scored to the exquisitely soothing music of Steven Mark Kohn, and produced by the Cleveland Orchestra's Bruce Gigax.
