Working On Yourself Doesn't Work

By Ariel & Shya Kane

by Mary Arsenault


After years of yoga, self-help classes, meditation, and counseling, plus a two year stay in a northern Italian meditation center, culminating in a six month, 24/7 workshop, Ariel and Shya Kane were completely wiped out, both emotionally and financially, and still nowhere close to enlightenment. Debating whether or not to go through yet another round of "picking on themselves and each other" under the guise of trying to perfect themselves, they realized that working on themselves just did not work. So they stopped. They didn't just stop taking classes or attending seminars, however, they stopped berating themselves for perceived deficiencies and they stopped trying to fix themselves and each other. Soon, their friends began noticing their very dramatic and positive change, and wanted to know what they were "doing" to have suddenly become so enlightened. While they were no longer "doing" things, they found themselves transformed by adhering to three simple principles, which they developed into their technology of Instantaneous TransformationTM. These principles are presented in their newly re-released book, Working On Yourself Doesn't Work.

Free of religious dogma and spiritual philosophies, Working On Yourself Doesn't Work is a practical and rational guide to living your life with full awareness of the moment, which is the only place you ever truly are, and thus, the only place where transformation can ever possibly occur. The Kanes' three principles, explained fully in their book, are as follows: 1) Anything you resist, persists and grows stronger; 2) No two things can occupy the same space at the same time; and 3) Anything you allow to be exactly as it is, without trying to fix or change it, will complete itself. Through the consistent application of these principles you'll find that you can remain centered in stressful or challenging circumstances, discover a more honest, way of being that will allow you to be increasingly effective and satisfied in all aspects of your life, have relationships that are more loving, exciting and supportive, and dissolve mechanical habits that rob you of spon-taneity, joy and creativity. The Kanes' light, conversational writing style, and frequent use of stories from their personal experience, not only helps clarify their profound principles, it makes their book a joy to read.

Previously a self-published, Amazon.com best-seller, Working On Yourself Doesn't Work,by Ariel and Shya Kane, is being re-released by McGraw-Hill and available wherever books are sold beginning October 3rd.
