Inviting Grace:

Relaxing Meditations Setting Free Creativity and Intuition

    "Most of us can't just plunk down and be creative or intuitive," says Tama J. Kieves who has designed two special journeys, set to heart-healing music, to help you let go of tension and self-judgment and release your natural and often uncanny abilities.

    The first meditation helps artists, writers, and visionaries of all kinds undo blocks and set free wholehearted expression. The second one guides the mind from ordinary consciousness to the mind receptive to exceptional problem-solving and direction. Both experiences may be used as a daily and powerful practice. Students have asked for this for years and it's finally here!
