I have to tell you that of all the childrens' meditation CDs I have heard, yours are the best. Your music background is great and your voice is wonderful too. Thanks for doing such a great job.

My grandsons fall asleep quickly and easily with Dr. Reznick's Discovering Your Special Place tape. Once the music begins we don't hear a peep out of them and they awaken the next morning refreshed and ready for a new day. Listening to Dr. Reznick s soothing and healing voice has become a tradition in our household. I highly recommend and endorse anything Dr. Reznick produces. This tape is truly a must have for all parents!

These CD's are really good for children who are overly busy and feel stressed. I really enjoyed them ... I felt very soothed and safe... I am going to listen to them often, because they made me feel good and helped me to be much more relaxed after school.

Charlotte Reznick expresses herself in a way that makes the listener feel very special and cared for. Her ... words and imagery provide a backdrop of shelter and safety where nothing else intrudes ... and no matter if you are a child or grownup, a space is created where you can truly let down and relax you mind and body.

Discovering Your Special Place by Charlotte Reznick, Ph.D.

Not only did his mom go out for the evening without him, but he had to share Grandma s attention with his two-year-old cousin. (He learned soon after baby Ashleigh s birth that a baby girl was pretty stiff competition.)
After several hours of sharing his toys, singing lullabies to the baby and holding back tears, it was time for bed and he just couldn t sleep. (He has the energy that accompanies being six.) Perfect time for Grandma and Christopher to recline in a softly lit room and review the new tape for the magazine. This was going to be a tough test.
It started with soft musical cords. Christopher opened one eye and gave me that oh brother look. A soothing voice encouraged us to close our eyes and take belly breaths. This caught his attention and he put his hand on his tummy, eagerly and began belly breathing. Then we proceeded along with the instructions. Tighten different muscles, hold, and relax. I peeked to watch Chris introduction to the world of relaxation. Fascinated I watched as he lifted his foot and with determination and intrigue continued to cooperate.
Dr. Reznick has obviously found the right technique and very definitely has the right voice to fulfill her promise of a soothing guided journey to inner peace for kids 5 to 105.
Throughout the tape is the promise of finding your special place. Chris really needed a special place that night. However, just as we were about to approach it, I heard his even deep breathing and saw his relaxed body and knew his special place right at the moment was in the world of dreams. I, however, needed to find my special place, so I gave myself the luxury of finishing the tape.
We both slept soundly that night. In the morning, I asked Chris how he liked the tape. I tried to pay attention Grandma, but the tape made me feel so relaxed. What better recommendation?
He now calls it his sleep tape He discovered his special lace and loves the idea of being able to go somewhere in his mind. His goal is to make it through an entire side before falling asleep!

Discovering Your Special Place by Charlotte Reznick, Ph.D.

With today s high divorce rate, single-working parents, and an increasingly violent society, our children need to find a safe place. Imagery For Kids: Discovering Your Special Place, an audio program by Charlotte Reznick Ph.D., is a wonderful guided journey to help children find the safe place inside themselves.
Charlotte has worked as a Child and Educational Psychologist for over 20 years. She has taught extensively in workshops across the country, and continues to develop in the areas of psychology and education.
In this tape, she teaches a relaxation technique called the Balloon Breath , and introduces children to relaxing their bodies from their toes to their nose. From there, she takes an inward turn and helps the child to discover that magic place of unconditional love designed by the child herself.
Each new step is reinforced by positive acknowledgement. Reznick works with imaging white ball of light turning into a waterfall of light washing over the listener s body to clear, relax and go deeper. With gentle music, she assists the child in creating and exploring the realms of his imagination. By feeling free to design the set of their voyages, children learn they do have control over themselves, which can be very empowering. It helps them to feel happy with themselves, accepted, and loved in the way they want to create it. --Whole Life Times
