I have listened on several occasions to Eric Greenleaf's hypnosis CD's. It is difficult for me to put into words the effect they have on me. The first time I listened I simply wanted to jump up and start practicing the piano; after that I would feel as if something deeply significant and healing were happening, as if I were coming into touch with my fullest level of living and being. They are satisfying and warming, and I look forward to many years of use of them.

I eagerly listened to this CD to prepare myself for the greater financial and physical uncertainties of the retirement years. After listening for the first time, I found surprisingly that I walked easily, fluidly, effortlessly. Happy memories of past joys came to mind. I was detached from interactions that would ordinarily irritate me.

Though the CD is meant for a wide audience, it becomes personally meaningful because Eric includes so many different images that a person can select those most important to him or her. I look forward to the benefits that will come from listening to the CD many times.

What a stimulating journey into the unknown in Preparing for Uncertainty!

From initial image to final resolution, Dr. Greenleaf illustrates a deep understanding of what we experience as we face life's uncertainties. He offers us a wealth of practical suggestions on how to deal with such doubts, fears, anxieties, and questions. These down-to-earth ideas humanize our concerns and, at the same time, affirm our abilities to handle their multi-layered challenges.

He does not stop there, however; from the kaleidoscope of the ordinary world, he lifts us into a larger, more universal perspective. From here we glimpse possibilities of self-knowledge we only dimly realized we might have. This is Wisdom Healing at its best. Buy this program.

With Eric's caring and skillful support I was able to face precarious retina surgery on my sighted eye. His steadying voice led me to my own courage in a profound and lasting way. Eric is an affirming spirit, a poet, and a mensch.

Preparing for Uncertainty is an easy, peaceful introduction to the hypnosis world. One is very gradually guided into hypnotic trance and given a series of subtle suggestions about how to deal with the various situations encountered by all of us who live in this ever changing hectic world. I find the CD particularly useful in grounding myself when I am anxious about a specific situation or making an important decision.

Pat Salony


In a mellifluous voice, and brilliantly using stories, metaphor and music, Eric Greenleaf offers us a powerful way to prepare for life's unexpected events and challenges. Taking us on a journey where we equip ourselves with all that we will need along the way, we move first into a place of quiet, deep relaxation and then into deep trance.

This trance state ushers us through a preparation of mind, body, and spirit, together with feelings and actions, to help us find our own unique way to deal with this journey in life.

The CD encourages us to expect unexpected events, tests, performances, and trials along the road, and to prepare ourselves to remain calm and curious, and intrigued rather than overwhelmed by life's surprises and challenges. Dr. Greenleaf invites us to explore which tools to take with us on this life-long excursion, and identifies the many rich resources we all already have inside of us.

I plan to recommend this important and unusual presentation to my clients, colleagues and friends. Rich in detail, imagery and feeling, it can only be helpful to all of us as we face the challenges and surprises of living in an increasingly complex world.

In Shared Couple's Trance, Michele Ritterman eloquently helps couples develop their skills in relationships. She guides partners to discover ways to build intimacy and closeness, and also to develop as separate and unique individuals within the relationship. Michele is creative and poetic in her use of language. She presents us with metaphors and stories that are fascinating, engaging and powerful. This CD is masterful and it has my highest recommendation.

Joyce Mills speaks straight from the heart to your heart. Joyce is a magical spellbinder who touches young and old in ways that help us experience the joy of living.

Eric Greenleaf's inviting CD provides us with a clear guide for the most constant fact of everyday human life, its newness and unpredictability, and how we can best plan to face this newness calmly, flexibly, and successfully. His voice is that of a warm, supportive raconteur, informal yet systematic, colloquial yet well informed, urgent and directive without pushing, repetitive without monotony, like a drumbeat of varying tempos and emphases.

He encourages the listener, most of all, to have faith in self, faith that the will to succeed is nourished both by one's own style of preparation and by confidence that resourcefulness lies in periods of ''time out,'' when one forgets the subject at hand, in order then to return to it with a renewed skill. I recommend this CD to anyone concerned with strengthening the sense of autonomy and competence.

Dr. Dyckman has crafted a warmly appealing set of children's folk tales, designed to assist children in dealing with their fears and anxieties. The companion introduction for parents provides a reassuring overview of the naturalistic process of hypnosis. A wonderful contribution to resources for children!

Marilyn Lindsey, Ph.D.,
Child Psychologist


Eric Greenleaf shows you how to turn anxiety about change and uncertainty into calm curiosity about what the future may bring, and a feeling of flexible preparedness for anything.

Like an athlete's warm up exercises, this trance builds your confidence that you will be able to respond to life's stressful events in your own way, using your own strengths.

In listening to this couple's tape, I had my first opportunity to sample Dr. Ritterman's work. While she skillfully incorporates the standard Ericksonian techniques into these trances, her wonderful style and approach also are uniquely her own.

It would be easy to review Dr. Ritterman's compact disc of shared and separate track trances for couples on the basis of her skill with hypnotic techniques, carefully chosen metaphors or brilliance of her creative and groundbreaking ideas. Rather than describe what is best experienced, I prefer to review her masterpiece on the basis of what sets it apart from any other that could be created which would be designed to remind a couple of the importance of keeping shared memories alive and also maintaining a healthy independent identity.

What comes through that would be such an enhancement to any couple who is listening to these trances is the feeling of being understood and cared about by Dr. Ritterman. One feels her wisdom and support in the quality, timber, pitch and lilt of her voice. The authenticity of who she is flows so naturally in this organic creation that her message is magnified. This CD is hypnotic intervention at its finest and a true work of art.

Helen Adrienne, LCSW, BCD


Dear Dr. Greenleaf, what a wonderful CD! I had been really stressed out about upcoming surgery . . . sleepless nights, irritability at work, a near miss accident in the car . . . a total mess emotionally. Your CD put me right back on track. It was like a travel guide to serenity. I owe you much. Thank you.

Michele Ritterman's new CD of couples' trances is outstanding. I particularly liked the part describing the imagery of the brain expanding and contracting in an opposite pattern from breathing. The imagery she used was very beautiful. And the powerful story she told at the end still sticks with me. Thank you, Dr. Ritterman, for helping couples reconnect in such a powerful way. I shall be proud to recommend it to my clients.

John Dyckman's entrancing creations are likely to be helpful not only to children with common problems and the parents who are concerned about them, but to anyone who enjoys a good story. We all respond to folk tales: Dr. Dyckman has managed the trick of creating yarns which teach and comfort as they entertain. They also have the ability to bridge cultural differences: his account of ''the caterpillar who didn't want to change'' enchanted audiences when I was recently lecturing in Japan. These stories are not only well crafted, but beautifully delivered . . . I recommend them most highly!

Michelle helped us to strengthen our relationship to become a nurturing and protective sanctuary in the face of adversity. She helped us to become even closer and more supportive of each other, and to this day I remember her words of wisdom and compassion.

The Hypnosis Experience includes ''Using the Resources of the Unconscious Mind,'' ''Experiencing Useful Trance,'' ''Tuning to the Body,'' and ''A Pharmacy of Emotions'' - all masterful stuff. We learn much about feelings, the body, healing, relaxation, allowing the mind to take its own lead - all without quite knowing how the learning is taking place.

To the untrained listener, the children's CD is just like any other bedtime story one might tell a child, but, those schooled in Ericksonian trancework will quickly come to appreciate how masterfully Dr. Mills weaves classical Ericksonian techniques into the story to accomplish an unconscious parallel retrieval of resources that would result in an enhanced esteem and sense of empowerment in the listener . . . The target audience goes beyond children with bedwetting problems, even though this was the original intended audience.

Dear Dr. Greenleaf,
Thank you for the two-CD set entitled The Hypnosis Experience. I find that, when using the CDs regularly, my overall emotional balance and equilibrium are stabler in ways I can't predict or explain. It's like a strong, surging wave buoying me up. When I start to feel anxious at night, I am able to relax with just a few breaths and return to sleep. This is vitally important to me; my husband suffers from ALS, and since I have to do most of the care of our children and home, I need regular rest. Thank you, and keep up the good work!

Mary Rees, Ph.D.


Eric, I found your Uncertainty CD just wonderful when I listened last evening. Listening to you as we went on this little journey had me feeling delighted. Loosening and lightening up to the experience of both the preparation and the walk itself left me smiling throughout. It seemed so colorful and whimsical. The trance really worked. Plus I am reminded of how to conduct a trance session in the best possible way with a Technicolor barrage of detailed imagery and metaphor. Today I am still transformed.

My daughter is an 8-year-old with primary enuresis. We have tried letting her outgrow her bedwetting with no success. We have tried the lifting technique. We have also tried waking her up periodically. All with no success.

We purchased a bedwetting alarm and this CD and started using them at the same time. The first week she was wetting her bed 1-2 times a night. The second week she had 3 dry nights and wet once only on the other nights. Week three she also had 3 dry nights, 2 nights of wetting once, and one night of wetting twice. The fourth week she had 4 dry nights and 3 nights with one wetting. The fifth week was 7 dry nights (a total of 9 straight dry nights)! The sixth week, which is not finished yet, has been 6 dry nights.

I personally feel that this behavior change is from the hypnosis CD. The alarm is supposed to train them to learn to wake up when they feel their bladder is full, where the CD seems to train their brain to use their muscles to hold their urine until morning.

Eric Greenleaf's CD, Preparing for Uncertainty, is beautiful, moving, consoling, and freeing. It helps one meet life with thoughtful feeling and curious knowing. It empowers one to act and to receive life as fully as one would like, with ease and grace. It inspires courage and engenders hope in the midst of life's adventures, fears, tribulations, and joys.

Greenleaf approaches the listener of this CD in a remarkably nuanced way. He supports the authenticity and integrity of the individual as he deals with common human concerns and dilemmas. The beauty and juxtaposition of words and phrases, accompanied as they are by a tone of tender compassionate strength, foster and sustain friendship and play, action and character, silence and comfort, and the full expression of life's sorrows and joys.

As I listen to this CD, I become grounded, feel connected to others, find my spirit enlivened, and am empowered to speak and act with integrity. I have recommended this CD to friends, family, and associates. Listening to this reflective meditation is a wonderful way to prepare to meet the challenges and gifts of life.

When I received my review copy of Shared Couples Trance by Michele Ritterman Ph.D., I decided that rather than simply to listen with a view to critique this, I would take this programme for a real life test drive it instead.

I asked my long term partner to join me in the shared experience. He agreed, albeit reluctantly, and, as suggested, we found ourselves a comfortable place and the session began.

I remember thinking, ''This really is PURE Ericksonian Hypnotherapy at its very best . . . '' but lost consciousness soon after!

The two days following this session have been most surprising to us both. We began talking about issues that we had never addressed before, and I would really say that we began to look at each other in a whole new light. This is not something I would say lightly, nor is it something that I would have expected to have happened; after all, we have known each other for a very long time now and I'm sure we thought we'd gotten to the bottom of each other by now.

I can only say that this experience has been immeasurably valuable for us both as individuals AND for our relationship. I would personally like to express my gratitude for this unexpected turn of events to Michele, and for anyone thinking about using this programme, I would highly recommend that you give it a try.

It is a truly unusual chance to open doors that may otherwise have remained locked forever.
