About the Author:

Joel and Michelle Levey have taught thousands of people around the globe to live in greater harmony and balance. Field-tested and refined over many years, the Leveys' unique approach to stress-mastery and personal development offers step-by-step guidance for developing personal strengths, enhancing the quality of life, and making a real contribution to the world.

Margaret Wheatley writes, teaches and speaks about how we can organize and accomplish work in chaotic times, sustain our relationships, and willingly step forward to serve. Since 1973, Meg has worked with an unusually broad variety of organizations; her clients and audiences range from the head of the U.S. Army to twelve-year-old Girl Scouts, from CEOs and government ministers to small town ministers, from large universities to rural aboriginal villages. All of these organizations and people wrestle with a common dilemma-how to maintain their integrity, focus and effectiveness as they cope with the relentless upheavals and rapid shifts of this troubling time. But there is another similarity: a common human desire to find ways to live together more harmoniously, more humanely, so that more people may benefit.

Review:

"Joel and Michelle Levey share more than 100 ideas, practices, and exercises they have used over the past 30 years to teach stress reduction and personal development to companies, groups, and individuals...Tailor-made for anyone dealing with physical, mental, or emotional stress." (Spirituality and Health)

"The Leveys offer an inviting and highly practical manual for those who want to enhance 'health and performance, master stress, and deepen their appreciation of life.' Many of the strategies found here are clear, step-by-step procedures; others are scripts suitable to record and play back during a relaxation, concentration, or meditation session. The authors continually emphasize the depth and sacredness associated with these 'inner arts,' resulting in a useful handbook that will appeal to a wide range of readers seeking increased tranquillity in and mastery over their lives." (Publishers Weekly)

"Skillfully weaves together contemporary insights into the value of and need for meditation in our lives with a large number of extremely evocative suggestions for different ways to practice." (Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are)

"A skillful blend of time-proven antidotes to the stress of modern life." (Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence)

"What a beautiful book! We need so much in our world to focus on how to be instead of how to do, and [this book] shows the way." (Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Space, Time, & Medicine and Healing Wounds)

"The methods included here work wonders. As a satisfied user of so many of them, I affirm that they truly deepen the appreciation of life." (Ram Dass, author of Be Here Now, How Can I Help, Grist for the Mill, and Journey of Awakening)

"The Leveys' work has great prospects for bringing the inner sciences to a very wide section of people who may not under ordinary circumstances come into contact with the inner technologies of mental development and transformation." (His Holiness the Dalai Lama)

"As an ultramarathon bicyclist I rode 10-12 days at a time for 22 hours per day. This not only takes a well toned body, but a fine tuned mind. Joel & Michelle have guided me from one unaware of her potential to a competitive ultramarathon athlete. By using techniques in this book I have been able to combine a positive attitude with self-confidence and discipline to be very successful. My success in not only in my competitive endeavors, but in the rest of my life during work , play and social activities...I recommend Joel and Michelle's book to anyone interested in techniques for realizing their full potentials." (Cheryl Marek, 1987 RAAM Rookie of the Year (Ride Across America), 1984 Women's Tandem RAAM Record Holder)

"Practical and down-to-earth, this is a remarkable and comprehensive workbook for mastering the stress of life." (NAPRA ReVIEW)

"A thoroughly useful, practical guidebook offering a distillation of many years of study and practice." (Yoga and Health)
