    Meditation teacher and author of Effortless Mind, Ajayan Borys

    in Self Help

    Beginners and long-term meditators alike will appreciate Ajayan Borys’ counter- intuitive teaching that one needn’t control the mind to experience the benefits of meditation. Instead, as with falling asleep, ease is essential. Effort fuels accomplishment in the world of action, but in the realm of meditation, struggle blocks success. And just as dreams are a natural part of restful sleep, thoughts during meditation are no obstacle to receiving wonderful, revitalizing results.

    With clear, user-friendly instruction, Ajayan presents classic techniques that can empower even beginners to experience deep, effective meditation and can help meditation veteran s go deeper. Offering eye-opening insights about finding growth and bliss in everyday life, Effortless Mind is filled with the practical and inspirational wisdom of a consummate teacher.

    Ajayan Borys (a-Jay-an Boris) (aka Henry James Borys) has been exploring and teaching a variety of meditation practices since 1970. In his younger life, he studied in residence under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation Program® and spent a decade teaching the TM Program®. In the mid-90s, he studied with India’s most widely revered contemporary female saint, known as the “hugging saint” Mata Amritanandamayi or Ammachi, A-ma-chi), serving as the meditation teacher at her ashram in Kerala, India. Upon his return the US, he founded a uniquely effective program of meditation, called Effortless Mind®. http://www.ajayan.com/

    Debra R Borys/ Bend Me Shape Me

    in Books

    After spending my whole life in small town Illinois, Debra R. Borys moved to big, gritty Chicago.  From country roads to “L” trestles, from swallow’s nests and corn fields to pigeon shit and stinking alleys.  Something drew me there and kept me there for four years–a need to look the not so pretty in the face and say screw you.  Maybe that’s why I developed such an appreciation for those who live there, especially the people of the streets.  They’ve been kicked in the face, cursed and, worst of all, ignored and yet they continue to say screw you.  They fight to survive, to thrive.

    Debra Borys - Painted Black

    in Books

    Painted Back twists the reality of Chicago’s homeless community with murder, corporate greed, and a bizarre collection of freeze-dried corpses.
     A homeless man in a glass coffin, that’s all Jo Sullivan was looking for, some new material for her column in Winds of Change, a weekly rag willing to dust the dirt off the seamier side of Chicago. But after she nearly turns a street kid into a hood ornament, the tip dropped by a fifteen year old prostitute starts to look more like a front page two inch headline. When the young girl disappears, her friend Chris hints of a room filled with corpses on display like an exhibit at a wax museum, and Jo and Chris team up to uncover the truth behind Sloan and Whiteside’s funeral home.
     10% of the author profits will be donated to homeless services, including The Night Ministry in Chicago, in appreciation for the work they do in helping the homeless. Ms Borys encourages anyone who reads her books to also support any program working to eliminate homelessness.

    Families Matter Show

    in Family

    BTR’s World of Ink Network show: Families Matter with hosts VS Grenier, Kecia Burcham and Irene Roth.


    The Families Matter show airs live once a month on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 6pm EST - 5pm CST - 4pm MST - 3pm PST

    The idea of this show on Blog Talk Radio’s World of Ink Network is to have guests and listeners (adults or kids) share information to help empower children and their families. 

    Our June show topic is about homeless families and children on the streets.

    This month we have a special guest...Deb Borys! She has recently released "Painted Black" a suspense novel that twists the reality of Chicago's homeless community. Borys has worked with the homeless, which helped with the research of her novel.

    The hosts also understand the importance of this ever growing issue in our communities and look forward to sharing programs and ways we can help those in need; along with helping those who do not understand the need in homeless communities. There is more to homeless communities than the addicates many think plague them.

    We invite our listeners to call-in or share through the chatroom questions or their stories.
