Establish a practice of meditation in six weeks. Techniques in this course stem from various philosophies that include teachings from Edgar Casey, Native American traditions, and East Indian philosophy. We have been told for years, “clear your mind of all thoughts,” or “meditate for a half hour to an hour a day.” This is sage advice but not always practical in today’s world. Practice ten minutes a day and change your life. Create a foundation and make the meditations and how you practice them your own.
"Being a long term meditator, I had this book for awhile before reading it. I originally picked it up, because I couldn't put down Lapinski's other book, The Knowing. I wondered what she had to say about meditation. I really think she did an excellent job of introducing meditation to interested, busy, on the go people. Clear, concise, easy, approachable directions inspire and motivate the reader to want to dive in. If you want to learn to meditate, this little book will help make it as easy as breathing."

Reviews of The Knowing:
"A powerful, honest look at this author’s life experience, with an excellent opener that readers can relate to: the thought that these experiences feel like they happened to someone else. The author has displayed her mindset of feeling somewhat removed from what she has experienced, a self-protective stance that shows her bravery, and hooks the reader into an expectation: What are we about to read?
The author has put great effort into recounting her experiences, creating wonderfully rounded views into her inner life, her relationships, her struggles. Each scene is marvelously layered with detail – from the sensory details that make this a ‘moving picture’ that we can *feel* to the author’s great talent for painting settings. We are grounded in realistic scenes, and we get an unflinching look at raw attack, danger, and damage. Transitioning bac and forth in time very naturally, the book creates raw emotion in the reader. We flinch at the savagery in the attack scene, we silently cheer for her resilience. We feel her hope as she heals.
A strength of this book is her well-delivered message of ‘receiving love was a choice I could make’ is the gem that adds the greatest value to this book. In life stories including memories of abuse and mistreatment, authors often tell what they experienced without going to the next level of ‘here’s a little bit of help for you.’ The author takes that step into providing a helpful insight, a decision that is in itself an action. Well done. The book is born with purpose.
Excellent pacing, so necessary to a story that has difficult scenes to experience (and we do experience emotion while reading). Author excels at realistic dialogue to help us see deep within the characters as well. Well done." Judge, 3rd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published eBook Awards.
"This is an inspirational story of one woman's journey in overcoming great adversity, which leads to self discovery, recognition and acceptance of her talents, and growth into her true self. But it is more than that... Not just a self-help book or a memoir, this book is also a gripping story written in style that holds the readers attention all the way to the end. Through the descriptive writing, the author makes us feel like we are there with her, seeing and feeling what she experiences. I truly enjoyed reading this book and found it very inspiring. I am in awe of Ms. Lapinski's bravery in writing and publishing her incredible true story. "
"Compelling and painfully truthful a fascinating story that reminds the reader of the amazing ability the human spirit possesses to overcome disturbing past events. In trusting your inner voice anyone can create their life experience."
