    1. The Burden. A story that shows that when we are overburdened, stressed or abused, we have to break away from the situation to find our true place in life, ideally without violence.

    2. The Black Pit. Depression often goes with being stuck in the poor circumstances that arise when hope evaporates. The important thing to do is to look into the future.

    3. The Profiteer. Greed often changes a person into something that is highly undesirable. When men go in the search of profit at the expense of others, they can find that the tragedy of others can hit back.

    4. Quicksand. Life can present precarious options. The way to be safe is to avoid the pitfalls that can be offered as pleasures such as bad relationships, drugs or jobs without prospects. Be confident enough to make the right decisions. Take those chances that offer benefit and steer clear of those that offer jeopardy.

    5. The Swing. Sometimes we need to encourage others to take responsibility for their own achievements through their own efforts. Sometimes helping too much turns to hurt the giver. Be self-assured. Do what you are able to do to help others but without damaging yourself.

    6. The Magic Carpet. The fear of flying is very often the result of negative associations with emotional turmoil rather than with a flight.

    7. The Bonfire. Memories may be attached to objects but never contained by them in such a way that they are destroyed if the object is lost. Reminiscences are held by our minds instead. We never throw those away unless we want, and need, to.

    8. Breath. The Latin word for breath is the same as the word for Spirit, as is the Hindi word `prana’ and the Chinese word `chi’. Perhaps we have known the connection between breathing and calmness and a peaceful soul a very long time but have failed to recognise the clues!

    9. Sewer Rats. Compare the lungs and blood vessels with sewer systems and the dirty things that live there. Clean air and water help to prevent the bad things that thrive on filth like tobacco smoke and fat.

    10. Taming the Wild River. This story is a fairly lightly disguised metaphor about IBS. Relaxation and visualisation are major tools in coping with it. The comparison made is between a violent river flowing to an explosive end and a more peaceful flow that is controlled and less physically disruptive.

    11. The Corporate Wife. When people devote too much time to making careers and money, they can lose the more valuable things in their lives. When the axe finally falls, those people can return to a home full of strangers.

    12. The Two Fires.Everybody has quarrels from time to time. They are about reaching warm understanding as two opinions are moulded into an agreement. However, when quarrels turn to angry rows, the outcome can be so destructive that lives are ruined.

    13. The Problem With Heirlooms. When people bring their own problems into the lives of others, then the recipient needs to know how to stop being negatively affected. Just because a parent has had bad experiences, it never means that those things will be replicated. We must live our lives as the main player, not as a support act.

    14. A Whale of a Time. Every so often we need to dump our personal, emotional rubbish. We need to take a deep breath and get on with our lives in a clean and fresh way.

    15. The Medium is the Message. Sometimes too much information can be dangerous. At other times it is good to know where truth should sit.

    16. The Feral Cat. How things can go wild.

    17. Talking to the Little Guys. Our whole system is loyal. It will do whatever we ask it, whether it is beneficial or not. The little loyal guys in our heads are our best friends but can be our worst enemies.

    18. Stabilisers. Gaining independence and freedom requires calculated risks rather than foolish ones.

    19. Stag Man. The old stag is always beaten by a younger challenger, sooner or later.

    20. Dry Ice. Using alcohol and drugs to camouflage and disguise situations never gets rid of memories, they only increase the damage.

    21. Ticks on the Head.Removing the irritating emotional parasites that live on us.

    22. The Queue at the Post Office. A little patience saves more than time when getting irritated and storming out, then coming back later when there is no queue.

    23. Where’s the Prophet in That? Our demand for celebrity.

    24. The Soccer Team When we spend our time saving problems from happening we get little credit. When we appear to be only interested in seeking glory through attack we can miss our goals. To be on the winning team we need to keep a balance between the two. Preventing problems and, at the same time, looking for opportunities to score is the best way to move forward.

    25. Eating and Drinking. When you eat quickly and without regard for what you are consuming, you will eat more. And when you eat without thinking, you can never value what you have on your plate.

    26. Cavemen on the Beach. It seems that when we go on holiday we change. It is as if we travel back in time by 50000 years to revert to the gentler creature that lives inside us when not under threat.

    27. The Metaphor of Life and Death. We have ideas about eternity and Heaven but none of really knows what it is like. I guess we will either be ecstatic when our time comes or we will know nothing afterwards if we are unlucky.

    28. Introduction to “Fantasies and Dreams. The tracks from the audio recording “Fantasies and Dreams”.

    29. Autumn Leaves.

    30. Summerhouse Hill.

    31. Palace of Dreams.

    32. Island.

    33. The Park.

    34. Planet.

    35. Landscape Painting.

    36. River Bank.

    37. Shape Shifting. An interactive relaxation story.

    38. Postscript: A Lecture from a Modern Shaman.
