A great piece of work, both fulfilling and functional. If I had to pick just one genre to listen to for the rest of my life, it would have to be ROCK. Even still, I've been a fan of JEFF GOLD's material since discovering SOUL OF A MOUNTAIN, apropos to the mood of an early morning after a really hard night, or a pleasant rainy evening. Simply a great alternative to rocking out. With this new material, it couldn't have come at a more crucial time in my life, suffering from a mild insomnia of sorts. And as it were, oddly enough and just as fitting, of all things attempted to put me to solid sleep, it was music, this CD, and JANET MONTGOMERY's lullaby that finally gave me the genuine sleep I had desperately longed for. Funny thing is, I really didn't know it was supposed to do just that, having picked up the CD simply as a JEFF GOLD fan, and days later giving it a listen, as I sat at my desk one night. Next thing I know I was STILL at my desk, and it was morning. Thank you Jeff! Thank you Janet! You've made my days.
....In Sleep Well, the combination of the spoken word and music is phenominal. I have problems falling asleep, and the first several times I used it, I never got past the first 10 minutes! I am familiar with Jeff's music from a cd he put out... same relaxing stuff. Loved it!!! Highly recommend it!
Live Well is a great CD for relaxation. Just wonderful music and relaxing voice. Can listen all the way through or divides up easily to use in segments. Highly recommend this.
I love the 11 Minute Nap CD. I am a speech pathologist in the public schools and in private practice. Everyone has at least 11 minutes to do this great deep relaxation. After listening to the CD I feel totally relaxed as if I had slept a good eight hours. I am able to accomplish tasks I was going to put off for another time. I strongly recommend it to teachers and those in the care giving profession. Wendy Bergman, M.A. .C.C.-sp Licenced Speech Pathologist
I asked Janet Montgomery to develop "Study and Test Well", a CD on test anxiety for students in a graduate program I direct. Janet created a beautiful piece that was of great benefit to the students. Those who chose to use the CD were able to manage their anxiety more effectively and performed exceptionally well on both the written and oral exams. The students reported being able to approach the process in a more relaxed and focused manner. The Study and Test Well CD has also been helpful for individuals preparing for board exams, SAT’s and job interviews. I would highly recommend this CD for assistance with performance anxiety related to test taking and formal presentations. Between Jeff Gold’s exquisite music and Janet’s wonderful imagery, language and gentle voice, you are guided into a relaxed yet focused state, the perfect combination for success.

Sleep Well I am a worrier. Being a worrier makes falling asleep very difficult. Even in grade school, thoughts would be rushing through my head as I watched the time on my alarm clock get later and later. The clock changing from late to now very early in the morning causes me more worry and more anxiety. When I was finally able to fall asleep, if something woke me up during the night, the worrying process kicked in again. I’ve tried a variety of methods to help get me to sleep faster: reading, melatonin, music, etc. and found that it still takes me a long time to fall asleep. Two hours is about how long it took me to fall asleep before a friend recommended Sleep Well. Sleep Well has given me something good to focus on while I wind down, instead of my regular worrying. The combination of the Jeff Gold’s soothing music and Janet Montgomery’s calming voice has really worked. Not only am I able to get to sleep much quicker, but if I wake up during the night, I can now go back to the place I ‘visit’ during Sleep Well and am soon back to sleep. On another note, I used Sleep Well to help my nine year old son get to sleep. He unfortunately takes after my ‘worry at bedtime’ issue. He really likes using the CD and asks to listen to it at bedtime. Sleep Well has been a real blessing in my home. Sincerely, J.A. Johnson
