“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 reading about it. 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 nation’s capital… now available to YOU and ME! Read Meditation Illuminated and let her guide you –with wisdom and humor– toward a less cluttered, chaotic mind.”

Elisabeth Leamy Correspondent for The Dr. Oz Show

“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.”

Washington Parent Magazine

“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. . . ”
