Dear friends,

My friend Gary Gach just wrote a wonderful book called Pause, Breathe, Smile.

  • The Pause is about setting our intention before we think, speak, or act — the ethical dimension of mindfulness.
  • When we Breathe, we unite mind, body, and spirit, making every moment an opportunity for meditation.
  • With a Smile, we open to a wisdom beyond words.

This simple trio will water your innate seeds of awakening to help you pave your own path to fulfillment and peace.

Pause, Breathe, Smile: Awakening Mindfulness When Meditation Is Not Enough

“This book goes beyond anything I expected. It opened doors to simple, actionable practices that left me smiling for days while exposing deeper truths of the energy beneath. Gary’s unique prose pierces through the common layers of anxious spin, bringing me to a verdant vista of perspective and peace. I dare anyone not to widen their eyes with wonder.”
– Sean Fargo

The 2nd book I’d like to share is from my friend Giovanni Dienstmann.

It’s aptly called Practical Meditation.

Each chapter is fully illustrated, easy to digest, clear and practical. No fluff, no difficult concepts, no new age woo-woo.

You can open this book on any page, and be sure you will learn something useful about meditation. Or you can gain a broad understanding of all that is involved, by reading it from cover to cover. Think of it as meditation in a box.

The vast majority of meditations in this book is secular by nature, even though rooted in the ancient contemplative traditions.

Whether you are new to meditation or have been meditating for years, I guarantee that you will learn something valuable from this book.

Check it out here:

I hope you enjoy these books!
