“Paraliminal” audio sessions to help with personal issues

Use “Paraliminal” learning sessions to help your nonconscious mind learn new ways of responding to personal issues, emotional concerns, studying problems, and other common concerns college students face.

These audio tools, created by Paul R. Scheele, Ph.D., of Learning Strategies, can help you can resolve real-time problems and achieve your goals.

When using Paraliminals, be in a place where you can listen with headphones, relax, and close your eyes. The average Paraliminal session is 20 minutes.

These tools are free for Gustavus students to use. Here is a list of sessions selected for Gustavus students with links to download informative booklets for each title. Further down the page you will find embedded audio players for each title.
