Meditation Illuminated – Now Available in Audiobook!

My motivation for writing Meditation Illuminated was to bring others the simple explanations I longed for when I first started meditating in the mid-1980s. Since the book contains 21 different guided meditations, I’m excited to announce that the audiobook version is now available. Whether you listen to the book, or read it in paperback or Kindle, my hope is to offer you accessible ideas and practices that can help transform your life—so that you can find clarity, inspiration, and peace on your path.

What People Are Saying

“Joy Rains has a gift. A gift for explaining abstract concepts like meditation through clever analogies and metaphors. For the first time in my hectic, harried life I actually UNDERSTAND how meditation is supposed to work and why I should give it a try! This book is fabulously basic yet beautifully profound. I was skeptical that I could learn something like meditation by listening to an audiobook. I thought surely I’d need a guru, a sage, to meet with me in person and show me the way. WRONG! Joy is that person, one of the most sought-after meditation coaches in the country…now available to you and me! Listen to Meditation Illuminated and let her guide you – with wisdom and humor – toward a less cluttered, chaotic mind.”

“With a calming tone and clear explanations, Meditation Illuminated introduces beginners to meditation in a way that is completely accessible, even for those with the busiest of minds.”

“It’s a beautiful book that feels good in the hand. . . Not a word is wasted, yet the writing throughout is graceful and generous. . . The simple language, short sentences, and easy flow of the writing will calm even the most hurried reader. . . ”
