Acknowledging the power of strong emotions, the first visualization invites the listener to experience riding in a hot air balloon using the force of their fiery emotions to propel them to a place of vision and finally drift safely down to land. In the second visualization the listener experiences the supportive and warming strength of the earth and then the freedom and buoyancy of the water to encourage a deepening sense of relaxation.

This CD guides the listener to practice breath work along with autogenics, statements used repeatedly to induce a state of deep relaxation. Listeners are encouraged to remember a time and place in which they experienced strength and a strong centre(reframed as “inner healers”). The music of Pachabel’s Canon accompanies the guided imagery of a tree Autogenic phrases emphasize growing in confidence and strength “every day in every way”. The closing image is that of energy rising through the body-as sap through the trunk of a tree. This helps to create a full circle of relaxation.

Abstract
When Sara Taylor was diagnosed with a rare and deadly form of cancer at age 23, she went looking in cancer agency libraries for answers and for resources that would address the particular issues that she faced, as a young adult dealing with a life-threatening illness. Almost everything she found was targeted at patients decades older than she, people who were at very different stages in their lives - professionally, socially and emotionally. The result is the documentary film, Chasing Rainbows: Young Adults Living With Cancer – a dynamic, intimate portrait of six young people who are “living life while fighting for it”.

Abstract
Spencer was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma at the age of six. Tracey and Steve did what most parents try to do: provide a fun and stimulating environment for their kids to grow in and reach their full potential. Foster did what brothers do: he offered up his bone marrow and rode shotgun in the all-terrain electric assault vehicle. Scupper did what sinister Portuguese Water Dogs do: he tried to eat the house one piece of furniture at a time and displace the "owner" from his spot in the bed. And Spencer? Spencer played soccer, sailed boats, built windmills, skipped a lot of school and developed a serious teenage drug habit. Along the way, Steve wrote this deeply personal, hilarious, and utterly moving collection of stories. They spilled out of his brain and onto the keyboard as there is not enough room for happy optimism and utter terror to coexist. I'll Shave my Head Too is an incredible balance between readability, humour, and emotional impact.
