New Book on Meditation and Spirituality




Is God in That Bottle Cap? A Search for Truth, by John D. Sambalino, is the true story of a personal quest for spiritual enlightenment and the many benefits of meditation. The new book, published by Vanishing Circle Press, is based on the author’s 44 years of daily meditation, yoga, tai chi and qigong.

       “We live in very stressful times,” says the South New Jersey author. “While this book can help [one] learn how to release stress naturally through meditation, it’s not a how-to book and does not teach meditation. [It addresses] how meditation can relieve stress and help to make a happier, healthier, more productive person.”

       Vijayendra Pratap, Ph.D., president of the Yoga Research Society, says, “I would love to see this book in the hands of practitioners of all paths for self-realization.” Kirkus Reviews calls the book a “lively and intensely readable story of one man’s use of a variety of spiritual practices to reveal the nature of reality.”

 

Cost: $16.95. For more information or to order the book, visit IsGodInThatBottleCap.com.
