Looking for happiness, fulfillment, and a little inspiration?

Soul-Centered: Transform Your Life in 8 Weeks with Meditation will help you to find just that.

I wrote this book to make meditation simple and easy for you.

In it you'll find the 5 Essentials to a successful meditation practice, along with step-by-step instruction in a wide variety of meditation practices, including an eating meditation, a number of walking meditations, and a variety of seated silent meditations.

You'll also discover the many transformational effects of meditation which include becoming more self-aware, becoming more joyous, being less judgemental, treating yourself and others with more compassion, feeling more connected to your true self, expressing yourself more honestly, receiving the gifts of your life, and establishing a nourishing lifestyle.

I share with you stories about my meditation journey - meditating in temples in Japan, living and chanting in an ashram in India, and being a head cook in a Zen Buddhist monastery in the wilderness. My journey into meditation took me around the world and totally transformed my life.

Though I traveled around the world to find the best and most authentic meditation practices, you don't have to. You'll find them compiled in this 8-week program - a program perfect for those just beginning a meditation practice, or for those who want to deepen their existing experience.

To give you a real flavor of the book I strongly suggest you download the free portion of one chapter about self-love and compassion. I know you will enjoy it (simply fill out the box on the right to receive it immediately.)

Everyone knows that the benefits of meditation are terrific - you feel better, you are clearer, smarter, more youthful, more creative, more compassionate, and healthier. It also helps you to be more peaceful as you reduce the stress in your life.

As we try to be all things to all people, do more with less time, and do things faster than ever, stress accumulates. I learned about the physiological and psychological toll stress takes when I joined the army at 18 and became a behavioral specialist, treating soldiers for post-traumatic stress. What I didn't know then was that meditation was the key to helping people to recover.

If meditation is that good for you, why don't most people do it? The reasons are too many to list here, but some don't know if they are doing it right, or they close their eyes and have too many thoughts, or they sit and wait and are not sure what they are supposed to experience, or they simply don't have enough time in their day.

The truth is this. When you are taught correctly and understand the keys to a successful meditation, no matter who you are - whether you're a student, stay at home parent, working professional, or retiree - you can develop a meditation practice to create a life filled with happiness, peace, fulfillment, creativity and love. We all want that.

You can do it! You can meditate, in fact, I haven't met anyone who can't! In Soul-Centered you'll find good reasons to meditate and a variety of practices that will keep you engaged. You'll be entertained, inspired, educated and guided into a multitude of meditation practices and meditative exercises, and you'll learn the essentials to a successful meditation. You can establish a solid, rewarding meditation practice: a practice which will be instrumental in living your best life - a soul-centered life.

The 8-week program you'll find in Soul-Centered will be your guide on a journey toward the life you know you can have. You'll learn how to meditate and love it! You'll develop more self-awareness, enjoy more calmness, open your mind, develop compassion for others and love for yourself, learn to express yourself authentically and to ask for what you want, become a better listener, and live a life full of creativity, fulfillment, and joy!

"Soul-Centered is a perfect blend of scientific fact, spiritual philosophy and personal experience beautifully woven into a practical formula for everyday life! In a responsible, well-researched, and easy-to-use manual that you'll want to keep at your fingertips, meditation pioneer Sarah McLean draws upon her personal exploration of the world's spiritual traditions to give new meaning to the most basic experience of our lives-the focus of our awareness in each experience and every relationship. The exercises Sarah provides following each chapter provide a beautiful opportunity to anchor in daily life what she offers in the book.

"If you've always wanted the benefits of meditation, yet have felt overwhelmed by rigid traditions and techniques, then this is the beautiful book you've been waiting for. From engineers to homemakers, from politicians to healers, this book opens the door to the source of your deepest beliefs and sheds new light on every choice you will ever make in life. I recommend Soul-Centered for everyone that is ready to take their lives and relationships to the next level!"
