NB - As Part I of this presentation involved some brief practical cognitive exercises for the audience, and Part II included a group exercise in self-hypnosis, both of the MP3 files have a number of moments of silence. These are usually deliberate pauses by the speaker to allow the audience to reflect or engage in other cognitive exercises, and do not indicate problems with the MP3 recording. Feel free to pause with the speaker, engage in the exercises, or fast forward as best suits you.
