Wonderful, practical guide

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook because it contains a wealth of useful, insightful information about how and why stressful thoughts arise, and what we can do to deal with them in a fully present, compassionate way so that they no longer have the power to run our lives.

What did you like best about this story?

The book just registers on so many levels. It is so useful to have a 'mirror' to hold up in which to try to understand our internal experience and how you can go about improving the quality of your life.

What does Toni Orans bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The narrator has a lovely, gentle voice that adds to the compassionate message of the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Due to the length of the book and it's insightful content, I wanted to take my time, listening section by section and then taking time to process the content.

I'm living a happier life because of this book!

What made the experience of listening to From Stress to Stillness the most enjoyable?

I was waiting for this book and didn't know it! It is the ultimate book about how to attain and support higher consciousness while living a busy life in a world spinning out of control. The advice is so simple and practical that I found nuggets to put into practice in the first few pages. I live more slowly and peacefully now. What a difference! So don't stop with this one, read all of Gina Lake's books! Thank you Gina for writing the most incredibly practical and wise spiritual books out there!

life changing

The struggle to feel peace and happiness is real amongst a society that is so fast paced and competitive. This book gave me tools to apply that have helped to to slow down, focus, and most of all recognize who I really am and find more purpose in life. I can honestly say I'm twice as happy of a person than I was before this book.

Would you listen to From Stress to Stillness again? Why?

Yes, I will listen to it over and over. It has been very helpful to me.
It can bring you more peace in your life.
I'm happy I found this audiobook.
Thanks for helping me get from stress to stillness :)

Any additional comments?

I just discovered Whispersync. It's very cool. They have a video explaining how it works. if you buy both the audio and kindle ebook you can read the book and then go back to the audiobook and it will leave off exactly where you left off and vice versa.

When you own the Whispersync for Voice-ready Kindle book and the Audible audiobook, you can switch between reading and listening without losing your place. Or you can read and listen at the same time on Kindle Fire HD.
