Psychotherapist, author, speaker and guided imagery pioneer Belleruth Naparstek is the creator of Health Journeys guided imagery audio series, helping listeners manage stress, chronic illness and emotional challenges. Her first book, Staying Well with Guided Imagery (Warner) is a widely used primer on imagery and healing. Her second book, Your Sixth Sense (Harper Collins), has been translated into 9 languages. Her book on imagery and posttraumatic stress, Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal (Bantam Dell), won the Spirituality & Health Top 50 Books Award and was called “the most useful book for trauma survivors to be published in the last decade”.
As Prevention Magazine has noted, Belleruth has been quietly creating an underground revolution among mainstream health and mental health bureaucracies, by persuading major institutions to distribute her guided imagery recordings, in most instances free of charge to recipients.
