About the Book

Meditation and relaxation have been in existence for a very long time. Our ancestors routinely practiced both - seeking a utopia to enhance their spirituality and be at peace with themselves and their surroundings. Today, the lifestyle of “busy” often leaves no time, which results in internal conflict. Internal conflict, when left unresolved, can manifest into much greater problems afflicting the mind body and spirit. When I was selected to facilitate a support group for individuals living with long term schizophrenia, meditation and relaxation proved to be effective when conducted in concert with a clinical treatment plan.
