Overview

This comfortably written book is a courageous out pouring of one's personal journey of learning how to meditate. The book weaves a compelling storyline into an inspiring how-to-guide, teaching a unique method of meditation. The downhome, conversational style of the author invites you into her world and tells you how it was to struggle with knowing there was more to life than she was experiencing. She felt a longing for something that she found hard to express and yet the feeling was with her constantly. The only thing that she was certain of was that the feeling felt Powerfully Sacred. As you read on, you see her moving closer and closer to the unveiling of this mysterious feeling that had been with her since childhood. She tells you about the myriad of New Age things she tried in search of a doorway inward. She wanted to see and feel this incredible Knowing that seemed to live within her. The first glimpse of this wondrous sacredness came in a most unusual way. So unusual that it took her a while to be able to share it with anyone. Once she was able to muster the nerve to tell her best friends, the doorways opened and it was obvious this was too wonderful not to share with everyone. Simply said, this small, powerful book takes the mystery out of meditation and teaches you to cherish the time you spend going within. It will take you step by step through the "Owner's Manual of Being Human" and surrender you into the lap of your Soul. This book will teach you without feeling like you're being taught and inspire you to move forward in your own personal growth and love of life.

    Nice

    If you want to learn to meditate look no further. Like the combination of personal experiences of the writer with simple step by step how to achieve deep meditation.

    Not for me!

    Too slow going for me. TOo much about her own life and too little about learning to meditate plus her sound method does not appeal to me. I learned nothing by reading this book.

    DON'T READ THIS BOOK IF YOU WANT TO LEARN HOW TO MEDITATE. Finis

    DON'T READ THIS BOOK IF YOU WANT TO LEARN HOW TO MEDITATE. Finished reading this book I decided the author don't know about meditation at all or he begins to meditate. But, I like begginers. And I know beginers who offer really very and very intresting ways to meditate. Anatoliy Obraztsov, for instance, with a crossing or the drop's history. He is begginer too... but...but!

    Not what i expected

    Slow and too wordy. The best information is hidden in the story of her life from pretty much birth to her present day.
