Author Hits the Amazon Bestseller List While Helping People Combat Stress and High Blood Pressure With Meditation


RADFORD, VA, OCTOBER 15, 2012 – Thanks to her latest book, Peering Through the Veil: The Step by Step Guide to Meditation and Inner Peace, Radford resident, Debbie “Takara” Shelor, is now an Amazon bestselling author.

After graduating from Virginia Tech in 1987 with a degree in Industrial Engineering, she headed off into the business world and the climb up the corporate ladder. Her career success was won at a high price. The more success she achieved, the higher her stress level became. Eventually she hit the wall. Realizing that stress was literally killing her, she decided her life needed to head in an entirely new direction. She left the corporate world, moved to an island, and co-founded a non-profit for dolphins and whales. And that was just the beginning.

In Peering Through the Veil, she takes the reader along on her 18-year exploration of meditation, inner peace, world travel, and spirituality. In addition to practicing numerous forms of meditation from many traditions, she traveled extensively throughout North America, lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico for over 9 years, and also aboard a million-dollar yacht in the South Pacific for awhile.  

Readers of Peering Through the Veil have the opportunity to discover a myriad of meditation methods including: transcendental meditation made popular by The Beetles, Native American sweat lodge, the latest scientifically proven brainwave technologies, and many more. In addition to the various meditation forms, Takara explains ways to get the most benefit out of each meditation experience and how to not only achieve tranquility, inner peace, lower blood pressure, and improved health, but how to find joy and an endless spring of creative inspiration and insight as well.

The book was officially launched on August 24th and the following day reached #2 in its category on Amazon. Visit http://www.PeeringThroughTheVeil.com  for details and to purchase.

Book Launching Today!

Peering Through the Veil available Today




Visit this page, to order at AMAZON and then come back to get your gifts here: http://launch.peeringthroughtheveil.com/p/gifts.html



It has been quite a journey transitioning from eBook publishing to print. Peering Through the Veil was completely rewritten and so many personal stories and new information was added that it shows little resemblance to its eBook predecessor.

The book isn't the only thing that had to undergo a transformation. I too have had to transform from being the editor of an online magazine and webmaster of numerous websites and blogs to being a published author with all that it entails.

This entire website is devoted to the book. I've had to update my press kit and prepare for interviews. Setting up an Amazon Author page was a new experience. Connecting with other authors and putting together a book launch has been a delightful new adventure unto itself.

It was very fun dusting off my industrial engineering skills and putting them to good use for managing the "project" of book publishing, launch, and promotion. Using a PERT chart to view my business visually and put together a Gantt chart to brainstorm, manage, and track the project has kept me sane handling all the details.

I often talk about riding the wave. This one has been quite a ride so far and its really just the beginning.

There are several more books in the works and in a few months I'll be launching an online training program. Soon I'll be co-leading workshops locally, with traveling to teach not far behind. I'm working on a giant project with a colleague in Hawaii and can't wait to share it with you when the time is right.

Have a deLightful day,
Takara

Meditation Quote from Peering Through the Veil by Takara


"A knight heads out on a quest. He faces danger and new situations at every turn. He may never find his way back to his village. He must overcome his fears and learn to trust himself and God in order to survive. Who he becomes and the skills he develops along the way are the stuff of legend. That is the Divine alchemy, the transformation of lead into gold, the attainment of the Holy Grain of Self. You are the knight. Your life is your quest."

Quote from Peering Through the Veil by Debbie Takara Shelor


"The wrong information can totally screw up your understanding and take you off course. It is sometimes difficult to read a book, attend a lecture or participate in a meditation with others, and not take all of it as gospel truth. Most things are only 50% true. Many things are even less."

I Crashed and Burned So You Don't Have To! Stop Your Stress Before It Kills You!

How to Relieve Stress from Work and Life





I crashed and burned so you don't have to!


Seriously.

I know what its like to work the 9 to 5 grind, which in many cases is more like 7 to 7 or even worse. With traffic, deadlines, implementing new policies and procedures, trying to succeed inside systems that seem almost destined to make you fail, the stress level can be over the top.

Even though you may not enjoy your job, you don't dare quit because there are entirely too many people out of work making finding a new one even harder. And how would you support yourself and your family?

Meditation Quote by Takara


"As you meditate, your brain changes state. It calms down. It becomes quiet. Stray thoughts fall away. You find peace, clarity, & pinpointed focus." - Peering Through the Veil by Debbie Takara Shelor

Meditation Quote Benjamin Franklin


"Reading makes a full man, meditation a profound man, discourse a clear man." - Benjamin Franklin

Meditation allows the mind to quiet and true inspiration and wisdom to be accessed from within. It is definitely a profound state of being. The longer one practices meditation, the more profound the insights are.

Enjoy!

Meditation Quote Bruce Lee


Meditation Quote by Bruce Lee: "Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now put the water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend."
