The book is a unique opportunity to share a spiritual journey of healing as it pulls together the very roots of change in a simple, spiritual, meditative practice that offers an innovative way to begin a process of change, and de-stress. What began as a simple storybook for her grandchildren while recuperating from surgery to remove a tumor from her lung has resulted in an amazing allegory. The story is so simple, yet so very deep.

The colorful illustrations soothe and cleanse the spirit, as metaphors offer unconscious connections to higher levels of knowing. As a guided meditation it is an engaging journey of enlightenment. One reader writes, “The mysterious yet inviting pool on the front cover begins a path that even young children can follow through the illustrations. I came away with words and images that continue to resonate in my own inner life.”

Ryan believes that stress and unmanageable change are the underlying roots of accidents, illness and a lot of relationship issues. Fear, anger and other strong negative emotions keep us out of the stream of synchronicities, the power of our intentions, and the natural flow of the Universe. Meditation and breath work allows the natural rhythms to equalize, healing and reconnecting ourselves spiritually.

As an expert in meditation process, spiritual healing, art therapy, and personal coaching she began practicing meditation over 30 years ago. Eventually she incorporated it into her spiritual healing practices with great success. She also creates CD’s for use in surgical suites to enhance the patients healing process and relieve pain.

She suggests that using this meditative process heals and prepares you to see life in a new way. When you focus on what is right with your world, it gives you the energy to fix what doesn’t work. Ultimately freeing you to allow focused intention, peace, and eventually the higher consciousness for which we all strive.

The author has been featured in radio and press interviews internationally, and has received numerous critical reviews for this new book.
