    Natural Meditation: A Guide to Effortless Meditative Practice

    in Spirituality

    Natural Meditation: A Guide to Effortless Meditative Practice with author Dean Sluyter


    Throw out every idea you think you know about meditation – including that it can only be learned in expensive classes, that it requires achieving a completely “blank” mind, or that meditation can only be done “properly” by people who can check of certain spiritual prerequisites.


    In fact, Dean Sluyter – who has been teaching meditation since 1970 says all we need to utilize the life-changing properties of meditation is already inside us. Meditation is a natural state where we simply connect with the awareness that exists inside us all, and achieving that sate is easier than you ever dared hope.


    In his book, Natural Meditation, Dean offers tips, history, and philosophy for those interested in connecting with their inner selves in the simplest way possible – with Natural Mediation.


    Dean Sluyter has taught natural meditation since 1970. He has given talks and led workshops throughout the U.S.  Dean has appeared in various media, including Oprah & Friends Radio and National Public Radio and his work has been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly, which called his writing “joyously entertaining.”

    The Author's Talk Show with Lucille M. Griswold ('Generations Apart' novelist)

    in Books

    Lucille M. Griswold most recently was a writing consultant for a local college in the Gateway to College Program sponsored by Bill and Melinda Gates.  She has authored a memoir called Life Lived in Reverse and two fiction novels, My Story: Only God Will be my Judge and Complex Love as well as a book of poems, Grandmother's Jewel's II. She lives in Maryland with her husband William.


    Her most recent novel, Generations Apart, is published by Rocket Science Productions.


    Rules change from one generation to another. Advice given in a past time period may seem totally out of whack in present day society. Reconciling the two can be irritating at best. Fortunately, society fights these injustices and eventually rules are created to compensate for past wrongs. The reader will become absorbed in the character of Susan Lavoie whose idyllic life is shattered during her first year in college. We learn how evading the truth and keeping secrets can lead to frustration and heartache and can ultimately involve the whole family. Redemption does follow despite the electronic age and family discrepancies. Times change, families change, but ultimately, the conclusion highlights generational inconsistencies, while informing and satiating an individual’s thirst for knowledge and entertainment. In a surprising conclusion, readers will learn the importance of telling the truth and if integrity and justice will prevail.


    Lucille is currenlty working on a new novel as well as a children's book about a school bus driver.  Look for those books in the near future.
