“If you are new to meditating, this is perfect for you, as it will lead you into yourself in a way that bypasses your mind and touches your heart. If you are an old pro – or facilitator even, this book is also for you, as it will be the perfect go to on a busy day or when you are feeling a bit empty, stretched or looking for a fresh idea. I highly recommend The Healing Waterfall: 100 Guided Imagery Scripts for Counselors, Healers & Clergy.”

“I listened to my first Max Highstein cassette tape back in the late 80’s and I have been listening and recommending them to my clients ever since. Max has a true gift of creating vivid imagery that leads one to such deep inner places to discover profound peace, tranquility, confidence and newness. Now, to have the scripts to use in session immediately right in the moment is exciting.

Superb for Social Work Practice

Guided Imagery Scripts

“Even as long as I have done this work sometimes, trying to come up with my own words for a guided visualization is difficult and now to have at my fingertips, scripts FAR more effective than anything I would come up with in the moment is truly a godsend. My clients tell me they find the results of the deep calming and restorative effects help to remind them of a place deep within where they feel they are safe and that it seemingly resets something in their nervous system. Max Highstein’s scripts are truly exquisite and powerful!” – Deborah Roberts
