The Power of Meditation: an ancient technique to access your inner power

Share it Please
PowerofmeditationI’ve been working on a book and that is part of the reason why my blog has been neglected.  Now that the book is close to release date, I’m starting to find more time to work on my blog, and take on more clients for blog coaching.

One of the meditation-like techniques I write about in The Power of Meditation is journaling, and blogging is a contemporary way to practice journaling.  

I love the lights that come on in my clients’ eyes when they start to see the product of their work in that exposed land of blogging , and how lovely it is to see them work through that moment of tenderness when they step into public view with their thoughts and ideas.

Here is the copy being used on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for the pre-sale announcement of The Power of Meditation:

Release date:
August 29, 2013


This wise and delightful guide to the benefits of meditation practices will help readers cultivate a calm, peaceful, and enlightened lifestyle. Drawing from his years of experience as a teacher, spiritual leader, and avid meditator, Edward Viljoen directs readers along the path to enlightenment using wisdom such as:

  • Mindfulness practices—Train yourself to become absorbed in a purposefully chosen activity.
  • Sitting practices—Reduce the use of mental and physical resources as much as possible by sitting still and silently.
  • Creative practices—Employ such devices as journaling, observing, and focusing on a favorite literary or spiritual passage.

Featuring personal anecdotes and stories from the author’s spiritual teachings, The Power of Meditation goes beyond a simple how-to book and offers a wonderful reading experience that will inspire readers to live more wise and fulfilling lives.

More than a straight-forward “how to meditate” guide, I tried to write about how individuals can create their own meditation practice experience without being overwhelmed or daunted by too-strict ideas about what meditation is and isn’t.   That’s basically the same approach I take with my blogging clients, I try to help them find their own voice, their own rhythm and their own niche.  No one-size-fits all, not in meditation, not in blogging. 





More than anything, the commitment to  a self styled regular schedule of practice, whatever the practice, is what contributes to momentum and deepening.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
