0 Reviews
The now-this moment-is the true source of happiness and peace and the key to living a fulfilled and meaningful life. Embracing the Now is a collection of essays whose common thread is the now. Full of clear insight and wisdom, it explains how the mind keeps you from being in the now, how to move into the now and stay there, and what living from there is like. It also explains how to overcome stumbling blocks to being in the now, such as fears, doubts, judgments, misunderstandings, distrust of life, desires, and other conditioned ideas that are behind human suffering.

About the author (2008)

Gina Lake is the author of over twenty books about awakening to one’s true nature, including From Stress to Stillness, All Grace, In the World But Not of It, The Jesus Trilogy, A Heroic Life, Trusting Life, Embracing the Now, Radical Happiness, and Choosing Love. She is also a gifted intuitive with a master's degree in counseling psychology and over twenty-five years’ experience supporting people in their spiritual growth. Gina's website offers information about her books and online courses, free ebooks, book excerpts, a monthly newsletter, a blog, and audio and video recordings: http://www.RadicalHappiness.com

The focus of Gina's writing and teaching is on helping people be in the present moment and live the happy and fulfilled life that is possible and on shedding light on the ego and other programming that interferes with that. Gina's teachings are most similar to Eckhart Tolle's, Byron Katie's, Adyashanti's, and A Course in Miracles. Her most recent books were received from Jesus in the same way that Helen Shucman received A Course in Miracles, through a process called conscious channeling.
