Are you always on the lookout for relaxing sounds to play in the background of your hypnosis sessions?
A recent Lifehacker.com post points (or, rather-re-points, as it had covered them before) to a very simple and very cool Web app that generates a wide variety of relaxing sounds and lets you mix them to your personal taste. Choose from drums, flutes, or “vibes”, add up to four choices of sound (birdsong, ocean waves, crickets, etc.), set the volume for each, and let it play.
Go check out Sound Sleeping. (Requires Flash.)
By the way, you can also download MP3 tracks of pre-mixed relaxation for a nominal price.
I received this back in April, but just found it, neglected, among some other e-mail.
Doug O’Brien and Nick Kemp composed and recorded original music for their 2006 collaboration, “How Deep the Rabbit Hole.” While they were at it, they decided to create some music that anyone could use in their trance inductions. The “license” is as follows:
The music is 15 minutes in length. You are free to use it however you choose. We only ask, if you use it for a distributed recording, please give us a music credit. Thanks.
It sounds really cool. Go get it. If you like, let ’em know; maybe they’ll give you some more.
Stever Robbins has recently finished a great new project:
You open your inbox first thing in the morning and are cheerily greeted by 400 new emails, all demanding your time and attention. Janice needs the numbers, now Frank wants your opinion And your mom has sent you a picture of a kitten wearing a hat. Adorable. But, Mom? I’m busy over here. You had grand plans to work on that report, but now its lunchtime and you’ve been dealing with things your inbox has thrown at you all morning. Wasn’t email supposed to make us more productive?
No matter what Stever does, you can believe it’ll be first class. Go get his new audio program, You Are Not Your Inbox, now!
Nick Kemp reports that he’s done a major redesign of his NLPMP3 site:
www.nlpmp3.com has just been redesigned and to date has free unedited interviews with many trainers including Richard Bandler, Frank Farrelly, Doug O Brien, Nick Kemp, Sue Knight, Michael Breen, Paul McKenna, Michael Neill, Steve Andreas and many more!
We are looking for new interview subjects for 2008 and all suggestions are most welcome. The subjects don’t need to be NLP trainers, but need to have something interesting to say from or on an NLP perspective!
I’m a major fan of The Teaching Company. They’re an amazing business which takes the cream of the crop of University professors and records their best lectures on audio and/or video:
The Teaching Company brings engaging professors into your home or car through courses on DVD, audio CD, and other formats. Since 1990, great teachers from the Ivy League, Stanford, Georgetown, and other leading colleges and universities have crafted over 200 courses for lifelong learners. We provide the adventure of learning, without the homework or exams.
I’ve bought several courses from them and have listened to a few more from my local public library. I’ve been consistently impressed.
On occasion, they give away a lecture or two, usually to celebrate a holiday. I just received an e-mail from them with links to two free lectures on the history of Christmas:
Season’s greetings! To thank you for being our customer, we have specially commissioned two holiday lectures by Professor Patrick N. Allitt. Our free gifts to you, “Christmas in Victorian Britain” and “Christmas in 19th-century America” are available for download or streaming right now.
Included in the e-mail was an invitation to forward it to friends. I figured this was the best way to get the word out. 🙂
In “Christmas in Victorian Britain,” Professor Allitt explores the celebration of Christmas as we know it today, with decorations, music, and lavish gift exchanges, and where it began–Victorian Britain. While the holiday had older traditions such as those that celebrated the winter solstice, the Victorians enhanced and clarified the religious elements of Christmas and at the same time commercialized it.
After familiarizing yourself with the origins of modern-day Christmas, explore “Christmas in 19th-century America.” How did different ethnic groups in America celebrate Christmas in the early 19th century? Why did New Englanders often want to avoid all forms of celebration while Pennsylvania Germans dressed up, visited each other, and drank heavily? After the Civil War, Christmas celebrations began to be standardized throughout the nation under the influence of the new department stores, which ran the Christmas-oriented marketing campaigns we are familiar with today.
About the professor:
Professor Patrick N. Allitt is Professor of History at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He was born and raised in central England and received his B.A. in British and European History from Oxford University. He earned his Ph.D. in American History from the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Allitt has served as a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard Divinity School and at the Princeton University Center for the Study of American Religion.
Please download and enjoy these sample lectures. I’m sure you’ll be sending a hunk of your income to The Teaching Company as soon as you get hooked. 🙂
Incidentally, the links on this page are lifted directly from the e-mail, complete with what appears to be referral information specific to the e-mail campaign. I do not get referral fees from The Teaching Company.
NLP Master Trainer Elite Stever Robbins has joined the “Quick and Dirty Tips” crew to produce a podcast on productivity. He’s the official Get-It-Done Guy!
Most people think of productivity as doing stuff faster. It isn’t. In this podcast, we find ways to do things better, and really dig into what’s even worth doing in the first place. You can act on the tips immediately, whether they’re about details such as labeling your files, or about the big picture of your life, such as finding ways to collaborate with colleagues, friends, and family so you work together helping everyone reach their goals.

Nick Kemp just let me know he has uploaded to his site a new interview with Steve Andreas. According to Nick, in this interview, Steve:
discusses modelling, how he first came across NLP in the 1970s and a message he would most like to pass on to the creators of NLP!
