Reviews

"If you thought you didn't have the time, focus, or discipline to meditate, this book is for you. The approach is both simple and fun, but don't be fooled. It's powerful because it's doable -- and truly transformative."
--Lisa Oz, host of The Lisa Oz Show

"If you were going to read one book on meditation, this would be the one."
--Shiva Rea

"This is an accessible, wise guidebook from an experienced writer and teacher who understands the process of meditation from the inside out."
--Susan Kaiser Greenland, author, The Mindful Child

"Dean Sluyter dispels many myths about meditation with clarity, eloquence, and insight. Without recourse to spiritual cliche or jargon, he shows that meditation is natural and effortless, and can be practiced by anyone who simply wishes to avail themselves of the peace that lies in the depths of their being at all times and under all circumstances."
--Rupert Spira, author Presence and The Ashes of Love

"Sluyter is in the grand tradition of authors who interpret traditional enlightenment teachings and apply them to modern Western life. This book accomplishes that task with a rare combination of insight, clarity, wit, and pragmatic common sense."
--Philip Goldberg, author, American Veda: From Emerson & the Beatles to Yoga & Meditation

"I've attended Dean's live sessions, and this book captures their spirit: relaxed and accessible, with a pop-culture-tinged playfulness that pulls you in and puts you at ease."
-- Lisa Leeman, producer, Crazy Wisdom; co-director, Awake: The Life of Yogananda

"With simplicity, wit, and clarity, Dean Sluyter debunks the misconceptions and offers a user-friendly practice that will put you in the 'Ahhhhhhh' space, regardless of circumstances. He is truly the Wizard of Ahhhhhhhs. This book will help you find the spacious grace in your life."
-- Steve Bhaerman, a.k.a. Swami Beyondananda, author and cosmic comic

"Dean Sluyter demystifies a timeless practice that brings lasting peace."
--MC YOGI

"Dean Sluyter dispels many myths about meditation with clarity, eloquence, and insight. Without recourse to spiritual cliche or jargon, he shows that meditation is natural and effortless, and can be practiced by anyone who simply wishes to avail themselves of the peace that lies in the depths of their being at all times and under all circumstances."
--Rupert Spira, author of The Transparency of Things, Presence and The Ashes of Love

"Sluyter uses Mother Nature for a role model as he guides readers through meditating on a single breath, on sensations, on sound, on the empty space behind our thoughts, on love, on the sky, and on the constant self-awareness we all carry within...Don't lump this one in with other meditation tomes. It is meant to speak to a much broader audience than most of those envision."
