A spoken word mind, body spirit Connectiion CD from Jon Seskevich! Includes evidence based valuable meditation instruction and guided practice.
I am a registered nurse who has worked in one of the USA’s best medical centers since 1987. During these years I have had the great fortune to help create a unique hospital position: Listening to patients and teaching simple, practical, scientifically valid, mind/body approaches for healing and stress management.
To help more people and to share my passion for improving quality of life and physical functioning: I have recorded the CD Building Resiliency. Of course you don’t have to be sick in the hospital to benefit from this wonderful recording. The insight, wisdom, and science shared in “Building Resiliency” can support almost anyone to cope with changes in life and help recover from stressful events.
Daily, I have been complimented about the soothing quality of my speaking voice. I am often told, just hearing my voice is relaxing. On this CD are jewels of stress management and a valuable guided 3 step meditation.
