The Path to Sleep

“We take the most difficult things for granted. Feeling entitled to life, liberty, and happiness we don’t feel the need to learn about love, hate, identity, family, or children. Do you think you know these things by instinct? How about breathing, eating, or standing up straight? How about sleeping?”

– from The Path to Sleep

“First, let me tell you how much I enjoyed your class. It was a wake-up reminder that I am in control of my brain. It is not easy, but I am definitely getting a better quality of sleep.”— Alexandra S.

“I can say without doubt: my sleep has improved a lot. I can fall asleep faster with much fewer days lying in bed trying to fall asleep… Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to live a better, healthier life. —Deborah E.

“I am sleeping better… I have listened to many of your tapes, made notes on those I liked, and am repeating them and they have been helpful.”—Ian B.

“For this issue, I would like you to create an image, a token. Some object that you can associate with this issue. It doesn’t have to be something actually related to it, but something that comes to mind or sight. It might be something that just makes you feel good…”
