I've had Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia for around 10 years and traveling has been tough as a result (often times impossible). I thought I'd never be able to go anywhere, however I was able to travel by car from NYC to all over Eastern Canada for a week and a half without any medications at all. I had them on me just in case, but ended up not taking any. I never even got to listening to 2nd CD (this has two), but I played a couple of tracks on repeat. Yes, it was tough to face the demons and feel all the feelings we can't stand, but I also did have so much fun for my vacation! I thought I'd never be able to do anything like that. I quit my antidepressant, meanwhile got 4 months of therapy, and accomplished this amazing goal of traveling to a destination I have visited pre-agora.
Dr. Claire Weekes has a great book about agora, which is how I got acquainted with her work and found out about this CD. She is Australian and has an accent, however as a non-native American English speaker I still found her voice easy to understand and her speaking manner is soothing and motivational. First CD is pretty much educational in nature, it's NOT a guided meditation or anything like that, more like motivational speaker audio...but it made me shed some tears, because I felt that she understood what I was going through. It felt that I had a long-time buddy sitting right there with me in the car as I was literally in the middle of nowhere on the highways, even being driven through several thunderstorms, forests, mountains, open farm spaces, and all the other "lovely" environments that people with agora adore. She kept telling me that I can do it if I just let the feelings pass through my body, no matter how uncomfortable and scary, that they will never last forever - and they DID PASS. I can't comment on 2nd CD in this pack, but I'm sure it's great as well.
This was a great investment to pay for, so go ahead and order it! Allow yourself to try this, it has truly worked for me!
Her basic theory is that you must change your thoughts about how you perceive everything that makes you nervous/panicky. I know that anxiety sufferers have heard that before--but her system is different. It is similar from Joe Barry's method, but his method continued to have you "fight" the fear. There is no fighting the fear with this program. I can do it no justice myself, but she basicly gives you the ability to transform your thinking about panic: be more accepting of yourself (think of it as "practicing" instead of "doing"; letting things "wash over you and accepting them" instead of fighting the fear/panic. And, essentially these less hightened reactions to fearful activities will "desentize" your already "sensitized" system.
Please, if you have suffered panic or agoraphobia or fear, please please don't hesitate to try this CD. It is not a wacky new age thing--it has sound principles that really work. As I stated earlier, I only wish I had found this sooner.
