Research at the Amen Clinics verifies that the brain can heal itself at any stage of life - and that we can amplify the process through simple measures. With Relaxation, Focus, and Memory Training, Daniel Amen, MD, provides us with one of the most effective tools he uses with his own patients: a visualization and stress-reduction session presented by Dr. Amen himself.
Dr. Amen created this recording for use as a self-contained program as well as a support for the millions who have benefitted from the principles taught in his best-selling books and public television specials. Used for just 25 minutes a day, this guided relaxation and visualization tool has been shown to enhance blood flow throughout the brain - improving attention, memory, and emotional well-being in as little as one week.

Very Relaxing. Great suggestions from an expert in brain health. The Author has a very relaxing voice that is an easy listen.
"Listening Daily has made a Difference in my Life"
Absolutely!. I have had problems with insomnia and I listen to this when I would like to go to sleep. It relaxes me and even if I do fall asleep, I know that the information is getting into my subconscious. I have noticed that I have been more productive, had more energy and felt better overall since listening to Dr. Amen's 30 min program every night for the last few weeks.
Dr. Amen's voice is very soothing. I like emphasis on living our life "now" and being in the present moment is where we should live, versus dwelling in the past. As he says....there absolutely nothing we can do to change the past, so dwelling on it is a waste of time!!
Now I almost automatically use the relaxation technique of breathing to calm myself in stressful situations. I do feel more energetic and focused after listening to this program. I don't know if it will work for everyone, but it certainly has worked for me.
"Want to mediate for 20 mins a day?"
I have been mediating for 2 months now and I was looking for some more guided meditations. I found it! Dr. Amen has a wisdom to his voice and the journey he takes you on to meditate, is one of lovely flower, pretty parks and healing waters. There is no music in the background and there is no religious suggestions. It's just the doc and the images he wants you to create to increase blood flow to your brain. I highly recommend this to people who do not know where to begin with stress reduction and think that regular meditation is weird.
Been listening for a couple weeks and my mood has improved. Past hurts aren't as painful. I look forward to listening to it.
"A serious waste of money."
Amen talks so much that you can't focus on anything that is truly relaxing or even begin to be mindful. He is clearly trying to $cash in on the mindfulness training trend without having trained himself yet!
Of course, he never uses the term mindfulness or mentions the names of those who ACTUALLY did the research; rather, he just acts as if it all originated with him. If one of my graduate students did this I'd call it plagiarism and give them an F.
"The way it is narrated, catches your attention."
It just keeps you going on and on. I liked it. Nice. Very nice. Fantastic.
"Love this meditation"
We definitely notice a difference when we do this meditation. it would have been helpful to start the actual meditation at the beginning of a new chapter rather than having to find exact spot for bookmark.
"This is surprisingly good. Thank you"
First.... thank you to audible for not ending this with "this is audible we hope you have enjoyed...."
second....this is so good i decided to get his book here on audible...i hope it's as good:)
Third....I absolutely love that Dr. Amen doesn't play back ground noise because I like creating my own.
Fourth....i like that the tone of Dr. Amen is clear, consistent, calm to the point and none of this emotionalism in his voice. I get tired of people and their voices changing to try to get you to where they want you instead of letting you get their through your own voice with the help of theirs.
The only complaint i might have is that there isn't more of these types of relaxation/meditation programs from Dr. Amen and others like this on/in audible.
"A beautiful escape"
This audio book made me feel like I just took a vacation! I've only listened to it once, this was my first day, and I'm looking forward to feeling the cumulative effects over the next month.o
I use it to fall a sleep, works great for me every time. This is so restful his voice calms me and his technique is amazing. Dr Amen is amazing.
