Nov 03, 2016 06:59PM

A new book by local therapist, sound healer and Grammy nominee Michael Brant DeMaria, PhD, has taken the number-one new release and bestseller spots in Amazon’s Popular Psychology and Medicine and Work Life Balance categories. Peace Within: Clear Your Mind, Open Your Heart, Embrace Your Soul, and Heal Your Life is a step-by-step guide to integrative wellness and awakening for people wishing to create a retreat for inner peace in the comfort of their own homes.

DeMaria’s fourth book, Peace Within is the distillation of his 35 years of helping guide others on their life journeys. Its 10 modules are designed as “an accessible, practical and highly engaging guide to awakening.” Among the topics they cover are “you are not who you think you are”; how breath work can change our lives; how to deal with difficult emotions and find inner peace; how to discern the difference between ego and soul; how to find peace within relationships; how journaling works as a meditation practice; how to practice lying-down meditation; and how mindfulness can improve everything we do.

DeMaria also shares his personal journey from suicidal despair to becoming a four-time Grammy nominee. Beginning with the loss of his home and the reemergence of PTSD from childhood trauma, he traces his own road back to sanity and shares the practices that helped him discover “the ocean of peace that lies within each of us.” DeMaria plans to launch a companion online program January 1.
