Tender and Smart, Loving and Blissful and Profound.
— David Lynch ~ Award Winning Filmmaker, Author: Catching the Big Fish

This book is a profound gift. Beautifully written, it gently opens our eyes to who we truly are and guides us in accessing the divine wisdom, peace and bliss within each one of us. Ann Purcell weaves the teachings of Maharishi with her personal journey to provide the keys to transformation.
— Amy Hatkoff ~ Child and family advocate, parenting educator, filmmaker, and author of The Inner World of Farm Animals; You are My World: How a Parent’s Love Shapes a Baby’s Mind; and How To Save The Children

A beautiful synthesis of heart and mind, this book is written from the personal and truthful perspective of an individual who has absorbed the depth and breadth of Maharishi’s extraordinarily profound and practical knowledge. It reveals how growth toward enlightenment is expressed through tender, subjective experiences of the transcendent. It also shows how enlightenment may be understood from a completely objective scientific point of view as the progressive refinement and development of total neurophysiological functioning.
— Dr. Keith Wallace ~ Founding President and Trustee of Maharishi University of Management, Dean of the College of Perfect Health and Professor of Physiology, and author of The Neurophysiology of Enlightenment

The Journey of Enlightenment is a brilliant and simply written reflection on how to live a life of joy, balance, and wholeness. As such, it is a roadmap to personal fulfillment, creative expression, and a gentler, kinder, more balanced world. WhileThe Journey of Enlightenment is for everyone, women in particular will find their own essential, divine, nourishing nature reflected back to them through this book.
— Candace Badgett ~ Chairman of the Global Mother Divine Organization, President of the Global Health Foundation for Women, and Director of The Raj Ayurveda Health Center and Spa

What Others Are Saying

I loved this book. It is all heart. It is so open and true and charmingly written, yet full with all Maharishi’s wisdom. Totally readable.

I read it through from beginning to end and would have read more if there had been more to read. Her poems possess a pure clarity, a very direct elegant simplicity. I am moved and settled by them. Mostly, they connect me to something inside, a remarkable achievement for which I remain most grateful. Reading these poems may well lead the reader to a level of consciousness they may not have experienced before; a true gift if ever there was one.
