I have never before encountered a duo like Hartmann

Just received my copy of the
CD and did "Receiving the Colors" this morning.
I could really FEEL the colors and was
taken by surprise at the intensity of emotion that arose. By the time I was
finished, I felt rejuvenated and very, very good (open to receive!!). All day
as I was out driving around, I kept noticing many beautiful flowers everywhere,
and finally as I returned home and saw yet another planting of totally vibrant,
richly colored flowers, I wondered to myself why they were so brilliant and
finally, I remembered having ET'd that track this morning (it takes me a while
thanks for Hypnodreams -- I'm going to put in an order for a few more to give to
friends and family. :-))
Waves of vibrant colors to you all!!
Thank you for the
Wisdom of the Water CD. I am absolutely delighted with it. The music and the
words together make for such a vivid and enticing experience, each track is a
journey and discovery all of it’s own, each different in sounds and story, yet
each equally compelling. I have not heard anything like this before.
The whole album is very hypnotic and soothing. You have to listen this with
headphones to experience it in your whole being. I feel like I can settle down
at anytime to take an exotic vacation, no matter where I am, how tired, or
stressed I am, I can always find solace and escape with this very expert and
The title track is a real favourite of mine, I love the story and the
crystal-like sounds that support the words as the tale unfolds, Pia’s singing on
this track is exquisite, I feel uplifted every time I hear it.
love Ice River, the music and the story again interweave and support each other
perfectly, I enjoy very much the images they conjure in my mind and often find
myself taking a few minutes out during the day to indulge myself and skate along
on that magical river.
While listening to
Wisdom of the Water,
or the Heart
Healing CD, or both, I was getting a lot of cross-over of senses; for
example, the music was becoming colors, and the color evocation evoked musical
notes as well as colors.
And another subject: electronic music compared to acoustic music. I have to
say, I have almost categorically hated electronic music, even though I have a
digital piano and it's sure fun to play with the vast palette of sounds.. but
there has always been something about the electronic new-age music that my
nervous system just never could warm up to.
Whereas, live acoustic music always gave me some visceral satisfaction that I
could never get with electronic music.. or even sometimes recorded acoustic
Then I listened to Silvia and Ananga's "Three CD's" (which I think someday will
be just as recognizable as the "Three Tenors", LOL!).. and these sounds were
absolutely nutritious to me. Even the very synthy sounds.
Well, you and Ananga have outdone yourselves. Now I know what you mean when you
say "other than." This is really.. other than other :-)
My first impression, when I heard the percussion come in was, aaaahh, thank you.
I was wanting percussion. My nervous system used to be too raw for it, and now I
So as the percussion was coming in, there was another sound that reminded me
of.. either a Tibetan singing bowl or a NY city subway, I couldn't tell which,
LOL!! Then I guess it didn't matter. But either way, it evoked this immense
sense of anticipation, that carried over through the rest of the piece.
Then, I have to say, same with the other HypnoDreams, I'm often drawn to
listening to the pure sounds of the words, and getting their flavor, all sort of
direct sensory stuff, and not paying as much attention to the meaning of the
It's as if the words are feeding me something very directly which I can take in
so easily, and that's so satisfying. After that, to put meanings to the words
and phrases seems almost unnecessary, or at least too much work :-). Does that
It's almost like listening to someone speaking in a language you don't know, but
you can get the necessary meaning because the language of the spirit is what's
really being spoken. And that communicates so easily.
During the track I had the experience of being carried along happily through the
textures of the words and sounds (word sounds and music sounds).
Now, this is all very interesting, how much I respond to HypnoDreams, since I am
a person who loathes listening to books on tape, or even being read to.
Especially when I'm tired, even when I have the energy to talk to someone,
sometimes it takes too much energy to listen to their response. So I guess I'm
very sensitive to what I hear.
There's something about these
HypnoDreams that feels completely right, like a food that nourishes not
because it contains a bunch of good elements, but because of its felt sense of
integrity. Maybe you can say more than I can about how that works!
I also really liked that the music extended a few minutes at the end.. it felt
like a right balance.

My story is this, I was the featured speaker for the Healing Talk at our church
yesterday. I spoke of Energy and energy systems which is new material for most
of those there. As I neared the end of my five minutes, I asked the people to
enter into an Energy exercise created by a Dr Silvia Hartman from Britain,
rather than just listening to what I was saying. With Silvia's Heart Healing
Poem in front of me, I asked one and all to join me in a

Afterwards, many expressed wanting to know more, and I was offered the
opportunity to share about Energy Psychology and the Heart Healing CD at the
Metaphysics class two Thursdays from hence. For a womyn who has been quietly
observing life from the back of the room this is strong stuff ...and I am ever
so grateful for EFT/ET, etc. to deal with all the emotions that this is stirring
up. I feel as though I have a dragon by the tail and I'm in for a ride.
And I can’t stop smiling!
I was a bit reluctant to listen to this
I mean it could have been embarrassing.....then what would I say ????
But it was great !!!!!
I gather people are using it in their therapy stuff but sheeeet.... I just
reacted to it with an open mind. Music is my inspiration and Silvia's
otherworldly accent worked in perfectly with the mysterious swirling Celtic
sound. I could see the mists floating around.
I loved the two voices ... it really added an unexpected dimension.

When listening to
last night, I realised that it was doing me a great deal more good than anything
I had heard in the genre so far in my self-healing journey. In fact, to be quite
frank, Heart Healing is without comparison - a brand new experience!
The title track
has so far resonated most with me, perhaps being the first step into a new
direction for me, beginning with Heart Healing and ending with the final
journey, 'The Child'. Celebration was
very touching and gave me a sense of excitement and belonging all at once.
I am excited to
experience all of these journeys again and again, because it has been my
experience thus far that I feel and hear different little treasures each
The instrumentation is excellent, very sympathetic to the words spoken. Allowing
you to have a complete representation of the 'story', and, in the manner of a
movie, capture the mood even more so than if the words were spoken alone.
Although I do feel the words alone would have an incredible impact , I realise
we need the soundtrack to guide our subtle mind and heart to the place where our
true and deepest feelings lay.
I found the flute on
the soundtracks to be very evocative and sometimes very emotive for me.
And there are drums! If, like me, you have subjected yourself to more run
of the mill hypnosis recordings, you will understand that primarily the
soundtracks will consist of waves, chirruping birds and such, but Ananga Sivyer
has used drumming and percussion within her beautifully sensitive soundscapes,
bravely and inventively.
I, at times, wondered
what came first, the words or the music. After pondering this a few whiles, I
came to believe that they were born on the same moment of the same hour on the
same day, conjoined twins, because both supports and feeds each
other perfectly. There is no battle and no one without the other, in my
Hartmann's deliciously seductive voice allows us to unfold and grow along with
the cadence of her remarkable poetry. I eagerly and trustingly took her hand
when she asked me to be a part of my own stories and opened myself up to her
because she asked me in such an incredibly compassionate and generous way. This
is the voice of the Wounded Healer, directed directly for you. I trusted
her voice so much so that if Silvia
herself had knocked on my door as I was
listening to Celebration, I would've invited her in and asked her to come and
live with me.
I enjoyed, on a production level, the use of ethnic percussion, children's
voices, most charmingly and sweetly used, the awesome flute parts, the heartfelt
vocal talents of, if I am not mistaken,
Pia of the New World Album Benediction Moon and the dynamically refined voice
and words of Dr
This production surpasses itself. How can that be? Because it is bigger than
even Silvia Hartmann and Ananga Sivyer
know it to be. Everyone who has a cowering, broken child within can do no better
than hear this grand and highly impressive recording - and let's face it, that
is a LOT of us.
I was asked to be the presenter at a
metaphysics class and I decided that
and energy work were on the agenda!
22 people were in class tonight, over double the usual summer attendance. I
introduced each track, with a few words, (not many as I didn't want to prejudice
the responses). We listened to Heart Healing, Welcoming the Colours, and
Celebration in that order but with a five plus minute space in between.
In that time space, everyone wrote about
After Celebration everyone was given the chance to vocalize/verbalize their
experience and I fielded as many of the questions that my limited experience
could. I deeply regret not taping this part of the evening because so much more
was said than I could write up.
The ENERGY...was high, and what was so unique for me, was that folks that never
had anything to say, just gushed, it was amazing, many connections, and
healings, made tonight.
I continue to grow in appreciation for the work the team has done on this CD.
It's truly amazing to be a part of this process, however small.

I am a professional hypnotherapist myself and I have a large
collection of hypnosis/meditation tapes. When I saw that Silvia Hartmann had
produced such a thing, of course I was intrigued and ordered it immediately.
I have been following Silvia's developing body of work for a
while and thought I was well prepared for what was to come. I absolutely
expected something unusual, something special, something with a "bit of Silvia
When the CD came, I immediately went to my study, took the
telephone off the hook, put on the headphones and ...
In hindsight, I am not sure what I had thought, what I had
expected, but these recordings are nothing like anything I have ever heard
There is such HONESTY about these tracks, in every way. It is
difficult to describe just how I feel about these but this is nothing like
ordinary hypnosis or meditation, where one is invited or bullied into something
that is supposed to be good for "mind, body and spirit".
Perhaps I had expected a lot of technical wizardry - HemiSync
style pulses, multiple vocals, panning, cross-fades and so forth but what you
get instead is Silvia's amazing voice, clear and powerful, delivering these
words which knock you to the floor, carried by these extraordinary soundscapes
which have the passion and power of a huge film score.
And the honesty of it. Simplicity, honesty, and directness -
Silvia doesn't mess about with "clever" language patterns designed to confuse
and disorient the listener, but instead, she speaks the truth, a simple poetry
that moved me to tears on more than one occasion.
For those who understand energy work, these "experiences of
healing" are one of the most powerful tools I have come across, but the
HypnoDreams are much more than that. I don't have the words to express this but
I FEEL there are realms beyond realms here, waiting for me and for me alone.
I would not be surprised if in a hundred years from now, these
recordings were to be hailed as the beginning of a whole new school of healing,
a new form of personal development altogether, where art, science, human
intelligence and compassion have come together to produce something that is
much, much more than the sum of its parts.
I salute the production team, the singer and the music
creator/s and most of all, Silvia Hartmann herself for bringing such an
extraordinary creation to the world, and to me.
Ray Jameston, CH. ABH
A friend gave me
for a present. I was a bit sceptical because I am not really a meditation kind
of a person but I must say I was really surprised how much I liked this album.
Generally I found it very soothing and relaxing. Some of the tracks make me feel
very sleepy which is a miracle for me since I usually have trouble getting off
to sleep. I find Ocean Wood particularly soothing and love listening to the
descriptions of the beach house and the journey to it.
I love the flute and the way the music illustrates the poems, the fact that such
a variety of real flutes and instruments have been used I find very interesting,
the sound of Silvia’s voice is incredible and fascinating and that combined with
Pia’s amazing voice makes a very complete and wonderful experience. I’m very
impressed by the combination of talents and how everything comes together.
My favourite track is Morning Light. I love the poem, very mood evoking I can
imagine different things coming to mind each time I listen to it. Moroccan and
Indian images of temples, landscapes and sunrises with beautiful banded skies
and people awake and dancing.
I also really enjoy celebration - it makes me zing! I can really feel the mood
of a celebration on this track – I love the line “your absence has been noted
long with much regret” it makes me want to join the party.
It is amazing how these tracks can take me from being so relaxed that I can just
sleep to wanting to party and dance,
I have never really
noticed anything before that has such an immediate effect on me.
A really wonderful gift!
I am writing to say Thank You to
Silvia and Ananga for their wonder-full
I have been wanting to
experience trance for a long time but could never quite relax. I am not a
natural English speaker. I often do not understand the words properly. Then I
get worried about it. Silvia speaks so clearly and still so softly, I can
finally see all the things in my minds eye that I have heard about but could not
do by myself - until HypnoDreams!
Right from the start I knew this
was different to all the many hypnosis tapes and CDs I have tried - there is
something DIFFERENT about this, how it sounds, how it feels but mostly how I
feel. It feels honest and strong, and I can go and relax and feel it will be ok.
So thank you very much and keep
making more wonder-full journeys for me to take.
Good wishes from
As I write
this in January 2005, mp3 music downloads have just overtaken actual CD sales in
shops for the first time. It was a while coming, but now the music download
revolution is here and you can now instantly download any music of your choosing
for adding to your play list, or playing on an ipod or portable mp3 player.
Instant downloads appeal to me; they are convenient, inexpensive and well…
instant. At the click of your mouse you can have anything you want to hear
delivered to your hard drive – right here, right now - when you want to hear it.
Some of my favourite downloads come from very the forward thinking HypnoDreams
Team, whose impressive catalogue for personal support, deep relaxation,
meditation, sleep, healing, or pure delightful creative adventures, is now
available by high quality mp3 download.
The recent additions of the HypnoSolutions to their already impressive list
means that you can literally go there and choose a specific audio solution,
download it there and then and begin to benefit immediately from having it with
you wherever you go on a portable audio device.
I have purchased several of their tracks and I am more than impressed. I have
them in their own unique folder on my ipod and at a flick of the menu wheel I
can be instantly transported into the experience of my choice, which is a very
useful and enjoyable thing indeed.
The HypnoDreams motto is “real solutions for real people” and they stand by
their word. The spoken journeys, by Master Hypnotist and Storyteller Silva
Hartmann, are enticing and evocative, beautifully delivered and intimately
spoken; and are seamlessly supported by the sound-scapes of fellow Hypnotist and
composer Ananga Sivyer.
I am amazed by the mood shifts I have experienced with the titles available from
this unique duo – from deep relaxation and relief from anxiety to extreme
motivation, the HypnoDreams carry you where you want to go, they never dictate
or push or pull, they are always respectful of you the listener.
I have never before encountered a duo like Hartmann & Sivyer who are both
respected authors, innovators and contributors to the field of Energy
Psychology, both healers and both hypnotists – it is apparent that they both
work very closely together, and the end results of their collaboration is so
very far from the sine waves and programmed synthesized patterns of many
hypnosis products or the employment of a professional musician with no real
understanding of what is being spoken being employed to provide music for a
Here you have a unique and united experience, where words and music interweave
and support each other seamlessly – the HypnoDreams experience.
Their latest album, Freedom, has just been released. You can visit them at:
<http://www.HypnoDreams.org> for a free full track download from the album.
My personal favorite from this excellent collection of journeys is “Forward to
the New” which is apt considering the availability now of these state of the art
experiences for the new state of the art portable audio market.
I just had to write and tell you how
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL !!!!! your

I am not sure if this is how you are supposed to use HypnoDreams, but this
was such a wonderful (and helpful) experience, I wanted to share it with you.
I had to move house recently. Although full of good intentions, I found
myself well after midnight with all of the kitchen still to be packed up, and
the moving company would be there at 7am the next morning. I was tired and
distressed, physically worn out, but it had to be done.
Then I had the idea of putting
"Freedom" on the CD
player in the kitchen. I just wanted to take my mind of being so tired and my
back and neck aching. I don't know what happened but when it stopped about an
hour later, the boxes were all packed and I don't even remember doing it - AND I
That was just MARVELLOUS - so THANK you very much for being in my kitchen and
helping me pack :-)

Friday afternoon, it has been a long week in the office. Was
starting to feel really bad after lunch and tired and snappy… could feel a
headache brewing at the back of my head and just wanted to shout how unfair it
all is and kick someone or something… lol… poor me poor me! Put a copy of
Wisdom in the drive
and played it quietly in the background - and even had the thought that it’s a
bit too quiet on these speakers so it probably wouldn’t work anyway (oh le

feeling pretty damn good!

While cooking dinner this evening I suddenly started to feel shaky and
noticed a dull ache in my left eye – in the past this has heralded the beginning
of a whopping headache/migraine with an excruciating pain through one eye that
goes on for hours...
I don’t get them as bad, or as frequently as I used to but occasionally they
still occur at some level and today seemed to be one of those days. In the past
as soon as I got a pain in one eye I would have a sense of dread of what was to
come and there was little I could seem to do about it - so , knowing that
anxiety really doesn’t help at such times, I decided to take my self off and
retreat to my room with
on my Ipod and put it on a loop and I honestly cannot tell you for how long or
how many listenings that when on – I only know that at some time later R. came
in to go to bed and I decided to get up and get a drink.
The relief and relaxation combined was very apparent. This things have always
started in the evening and always lasted throughout the night with me not able
to lie down because it makes the pain worse, so I sit there awake all night and
feeling vile! This was very different, right now – just a few hours after the
migraine eye pain was first noticed, I’m sitting here feeling fine – I have a
slight sense of a storm having passed such as I would usually get the next day,
when the whole thing had cleared. It always feels like something that has to be
gone through – but this time it was much faster and much much milder, as if the
HypnoDreams caught it and rushed it through very gently before it could get
Just wanted to let you know – whatever you are making here really works :-))

Yesterday evening I was engaged in a conflict that brought out the worst in
me. I have very series anger management problems. I was very upset, I was
trembling and terrified that I would go and do something stupid. In desperation,
I put on
"Beloved Golden" and prayed it would help.
I just can NOT believe how calm I became and how calm I remained after just
one listening. I could literally feel all that rage lift away, moments after it
had started and at the end I was back to myself. This might sound dumb but I am
real grateful, I have never had anything to stop me once I get going, and now I
Justin, New York
I have an awareness regarding your work and that of other hypnosis
techniques. Yours is really not a hypnosis to go in and reprogram the
subconscious with new instructions, new positive affirmations and like that as
is very popular now in days with the new scientific awareness that it's our
"beliefs" etc. that program even our cells vs our genes etc.
I have been working with all of that, but as I work with your materials, I
realize that we are working differently. As if regular hypnosis or other
reprogramming techniques are not taking into consideration "all of ourselves".
For example if I have a belief that I am ugly, and then I change it to I am
beautiful...what happens to all the energetic stuff behind that belief? The
It seems that the combination of your HypnoDreams and EmoTrance are working
quite differently and accessing more if not "all of ourselves". And I have a
bunch of hypnosis tapes, which I probably won't be using anymore.
It seems much more loving and accepting to use your materials and allowing
things to come up and flow with it.
