I started teaching meditation early in 2017. I've been into it since a young age, but it wasn't until 2010 that I discovered heart-based meditation and really began to benefit from it in a deep way. I mostly kept this to myself, until several years later, during a spiritual trip to Mexico. I was practicing Toltec rites in a cave in Teotihuacan, where I came to know that I should share my success by teaching people about the power of the heart in meditation. After returning to the United States, I thought deeply about what I could share, and I meditated on it until I had a clear enough picture to begin. Over time, sixteen distinct practices have come together as the main body of this work.

It's been highly rewarding. Each meditation event has been illuminating. I love it when people come back and bring friends. I want to reach more people with my message. There only so many people in my town, who can make it to events on the days when I teach them. There are only so many events I can offer each year, but...

A book can go everywhere. I want these life-changing, heart-opening practices to be widely available. I've taught them, tested them, and taken the time to write them down. While I believe that in-person instruction is ideal, a well written book is the next best thing. I'm only a few steps away from launching this book, and I would love your support in making this dream a reality.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my project. I hope it inspires you to meditate, open your heart, and dream big.

Risks and challenges

I have already made significant progress in writing this book. I've been working on it for over a year. Not finishing this book is not an option. Once the book is finished there is no obstacle to publishing, since I can publish independently.

Beyond the usual risks of life (sudden death or illness, things like that), I see no unusual risks or challenges. My goal is to get this book published soon after the project ends. By soon I mean within one hundred days. Once it's published, I'll be able to get the rewards out to my wonderful backers. I look forward to that!

Please note that while I've estimated the delivery of rewards for December 2019, it's a lot more likely that you'll have a book (or whatever your reward is) in your hands months ahead of that time. I'm giving myself lots of time in order to do everything well, but I intend to waste none of it.
