    In 1843, novelist Victor Hugo’s beloved 19-year-old daughter drowned. Ten years later, still grieving, Hugo initiated hundreds of séances from his home on the Isle of Jersey in order to reestablish contact with her. In the process, he claimed to have communed with Plato, Galileo, Shakespeare, Dante, Jesus - and even the devil himself. Hugo’s transcriptions of these conversations have all been published. Or so it has been believed...

    When Jac is in the cave and picks up the amber stone.

    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this a chapter or so at a time while I was weeding my garden. It is a good one to listen to while connecting with nature.

  • 396hz Solfeggio Meditation: Release deep rooted feelings of guilt, fear, shame and regret

    This is one of a series of six meditation recordings by Glenn Harrold and Ali Calderwood, which are based upon the ancient solfeggio musical scale. Each note in this scale has specific healing properties, and this recording uses the first note, which resonates to a frequency of 396hz. This particular frequency works to release deep rooted feelings of guilt and fear and will also work with other similar emotional patterns, such as shame, regret, self-doubt, and low self-esteem.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, our whole family uses it now. It relaxes a person and puts them to sleep.


    What did you like best about this story?

    My daughter has such a difficult time going to sleep. It will usually take her hours to get relaxed enough, even with a bedtime routine. Last night this put her to sleep within minutes. I am hoping that will continue! It works for me.

    I like the idea of the music to change ideas on the cellular level rather than drugs.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is so soothing. You trust him right away and will drift off beffore you know it. At least all three of us do.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from 396hz Solfeggio Meditation?

    I plan on using it again and think that it brings on a much more relaxing/deeper sleep.

    I was impressed when my eight-year-old daughter started answering the narrator in French.

    The accent.

    I use these lessons to introduce my daughter to foreign language. She has been spattering quite a bit of French lately.

    Would you listen to Glenn Harrold's Ultimate Guide to Relaxing Sleep Every Night again? Why?

    Yes, and again and again:)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Glenn Harrold's Ultimate Guide to Relaxing Sleep Every Night?

    He just has a very sexy accent and voice. He relaxes me so much I don't remember much. I just listen and go to sleep.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think I start listening because his voice sounds so good, but then just enjoy the ride.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, the first part. After that I don't remember.


    Any additional comments?

    I woke up in the middle of the night (about 2 AM) and was wide awake. Usually that means I will be up for hours and will wake up with a migraine in the morning. Instead of turning on the light and reading, I remembered Mr. Harrold's Guide to Sleeping and was asleep before I even knew it. For less than $4 you cannot beat the price either.

    I could not find anything that compares to your audio Pimsleur lessons, that is why we buy these even though sometimes we have to purchase the lessons seperately.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it is a half hour and I listen and practice with my family. We take a lesson and work on it for about a week.


    Any additional comments?

    I use the Pimsleur audio foreign language lessons to introduce my daughter to other languages. It is delightful when I hear her speak a phrase or two in every day language.

    We have only been doing the first part.

    No outsiders are ever admitted to the monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups, hidden deep in the wilderness of Quebec, where two dozen cloistered monks live in peace and prayer. They grow vegetables, they tend chickens, they make chocolate. And they sing. Ironically, for a community that has taken a vow of silence, the monks have become world-famous for their glorious voices, raised in ancient chants whose effect on both singer and listener is so profound it is known as “the beautiful mystery.”

    No.

    It was very interesting and lovely to learn about how a monk wrote down the first music.
