Spring is finally in the air. This is the time of year for new beginnings. It's the perfect time to explore new things, and to embark on a journey of personal awakening and expansion. One way I've been getting into this theme of reawakening is by reading excerpts from a brand new book by author Patrick Ryan called Awakened Wisdom - A Guide to Reclaiming Your Brilliance. I was first introduced to Patrick through Lynn Serafinn when I worked with her on Allison Maslan's book launch for Blast Off.
Over the past three decades, Patrick, an executive coach and a former Buddhist monk, has been on a spiritual quest that eventually led him to devise a system of teachings he calls "Awakened Wisdom Experiences" (AWE). For years he taught this system worldwide at his workshops of the same name. Now, at long last, he has consolidated the teachings of Awakened Wisdom Experiences into a book, appropriately titled, Awakened Wisdom - A Guide to Reclaiming Your Brilliance This means his unique spiritual teachings can now reach a much wider audience around the globe.
The book Awakened Wisdom is written in two sections. The first is a deeply spiritual exploration on what it means to be human. The second section explores what Patrick calls "Eight States of an Awakened Life." These eight states help you tap into your divine wisdom to create more of the life you want.
Here are the eight states from Patrick's book:
- A Good State of Understanding
- A Good State of Intention
- A Good State of Words
- A Good State of Being
- A Good State of Purpose
- A Good State of Effort
- A Good State of Practice
- A Good State of Doing
What is so nice about this book is that is both inspirational and practical. Most books on the market succeed in being one or the other, but rarely do you find one that is balanced in both respects.
Awakened Wisdom - A Guide to Reclaiming Your Brilliance comes out on Amazon on April 20, 2010. To expand the giving and receiving of this wisdom everyone who buys Patrick's wonderful book within the first 24 hours of its release will be able to download forty wonderful gifts being offered by mind-body-spirit teachers, authors, coaches and healers from around the planet. All of these gifts were selected to help you on your journey of reawakening this spring. Gifts include e-courses, e-books, audio meditations, audio books, photo-journals, videos, free telecourses, and too many other things to mention. Have a look at the gift page HERE and you can read all about them.
When you buy the book, you will be given free admission to this special 2-day live virtual event, taking place on May 5th and 6th, 2010. In that event, Patrick will personally guide you through the Eight States of an Awakened Life. If you cannot make the live event, it will be recorded, but it will be available only to those who buy the book on April 20th.
The AWAKENED WISDOM VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE is a NEVER before offered event. Imagine being able to learn the wisdom and teachings of a book like this directly from the author, while you follow along in your own copy of the book. If you're on the live call, you will even be given the opportunity to ask Patrick your own questions.
When you go to that page, be sure you enter your email address in the form, and Patrick will send you a launch reminder to make sure you don't miss the April 20 date. That way you can ensure you will be able to take advantage of all those great gifts AND enjoy Patrick's great new book, Awakened Wisdom - A Guide To Reclaiming Your Brilliance.
To me, it looks like a whole package that can help you reawaken your brilliant self this spring! I hope you'll be joining me in the journey.
