I'd like to thank everyone for your kind words about the Internet-of-the-Mind.com (IOTM) and for signing up for this newsletter. I have enjoyed building the site. It's a work in progress and I don't think I will ever be "done" developing it.

In fact, there are many new plans for development of the site over this coming year, some already underway… Several new pages and many new products have been added to the Serenity Cafe' in the past few weeks.

I must apologize for being behind in sending out this Newsletter...I got caught up in my largest project to date since creating the Internet-of-the-Mind.com. As a result, I am happy to announce that the Freedom for Life™ Executive and Life Coaching Program is now available.

As many of you know, I have significantly restructured my private practice to keep up with the latest and most powerful change technologies available...partly so I can be the best I can be for my clients sake...and partly for my sake. I’m aware that our brain is built to focus on growth & new experiences -- mine frequently says to me "Okay, so what’s next"?

I've been a Therapist for over 23 years -- during the past 5 years now I have completed intensive training and certification programs in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), basic and advanced clinical hypnosis, Cognitive Hypnotherapy, and the Life Coaching Process, to name a few.

As a result I am now branching off in two directions... one is my chosen path of professional counseling, which I feel is my purpose in life...and the other is a new and exciting variation on that -- professional coaching. What's the difference between the two?

How Coaching Differs from Therapy:

This can be a confusing question because therapy techniques are often used in the coaching process. Likewise, various coaching techniques are frequently used in the counseling process. However, the two processes are, by nature, somewhat different.

The primary difference is that counseling is about helping a person to "clean up", "move on", or "let go" of a painful past or help them to deal with current circumstances & conditions that impair their present functioning in one or more areas of life – such as depression, anxiety, addictions, unresolved trauma from childhood, grief & loss, etc.

Coaching is about helping a person who is not facing such difficulties, yet find themselves stuck or unable to move forward toward what they really want in life. Coaching is about helping people to design and create their future. It’s about helping them tap into their unrealized potential, motivation, and abilities to achieve things they've only dreamed of.

Serenity Café Updates – "Just what the doctor ordered!"

I've also added many new and revised versions of Meditation, Relaxation, Guided Imagery, Hypnosis, NLP and Affirmation audio collections on the various pages of the Café... They are all available for free listening directly from your browser.

However, they can no longer be freely downloaded directly from the website…partly because the large size of the files caused download problems and partly because they are now available for sale through my other new website specifically designed for storage and downloading of larger files -- Tiger Productions. (Yes...I've been very busy!).

I've been looking for ways to pay for and grow the Internet-of-the-Mind.com and the Serenity Café.

Many of you have been very supportive and grateful for resources and tools provided...So I have settled on a couple of methods for finding partners in these ventures. I want partnerships with people who find value in the tools and/or information made available.

There are a couple of ways people can help grow and sustain the Cafe' -- One is to visit my digital mall at Tiger Productions and purchase some of the many audio and video programs available there...

And the other is to make a direct donation at the Serenity Café...

    ... As a special "thank you" for your support -- For every $10 USD you donate, I will send you a download link for any two files YOU select – and that includes any audio programs on BOTH websites.
In order to bring you the digital mall option, I have teamed up with some great people at the Chill Sessions in Sydney, Australia.

The best thing about this partnership is that I’ve been able to combine my rapidly growing library of programs with their rapidly growing library of programs to bring you a wide selection of audio and video programs that are "just what the doctor ordered" for these highly stressful times.

Featured Programs:

  • The Kids Programs (4 to 12 years old)

    The Kids Programs are great for story time, winding down after school, quite time before bed, and rainy days -- they are great alternatives in many ways... For example, the Kids Programs foster creativity and stimulate brain growth by accessing your child's imaginative powers via auditory channels rather than the more typical intense visual stimulus of HDTV, DVD's, and video games.

  • The Ezywalk Program

    Ezywalk is the complete 'health trainer in your headphones' walking program that gets you into a healthy and fun 30-minute walk every day. Exercise remains a top Stress reducer & natural anxiety cure -- and this program makes it fun, yet challenging. After two weeks or so, just hearing the music is enough to motivate you to get going again.

    Over a 6-week period, you'll be adding a few minutes each day to your walk, so this is a very simple way to incorporate some activity into your day. Listen as your personal instructor guides you through each step. Your program includes the companion booklet, with photos of correct techniques for walking and stretching.

Thanks so much for your support and interest in the Internet-of-the-Mind.com... Stay tuned for several other program announcements over the next few weeks!
