If you are looking for inside information on the Beatles and transcendental meditation, look elsewhere. If you are interested in learning about the social settings, in which the technique was first popularized, read this book. Author Shumski describes her introduction to the Maharishi’s teaching styles. She explains how it changed her approach to life and self-actualization. This is only one of several books she has written on mediation, intuition, affirmation, prayer, and spiritual healing. The author has a Doctor of Divinity degree from Teaching of Intuitional Metaphysical, which is accredited by the American Alternative Medical Association and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners but does not qualify for traditional accreditation that universities like private and state universities, community colleges, and other secular institutions qualify for.


Laura Merlington, narrator, has recorded over one hundred audiobooks including works by Margaret Atwood and Alice Hoffman. Her voice is pleasing and her pronunciation clear and easy to understand. While Merlinton give a five star performance, the material is only worth three stars.
