Roy Horan Announces the Release of 'Vigilance of the Heart'


New book offers a visionary approach to high performance, well-being and self-realization

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (PRWEB) August 03, 2018

Synergizing mindfulness, heartfulness and playfulness, Roy Horan's "Vigilance of the Heart" (published by Balboa Press) offers readers an innovative approach to self-realization, achievement and well-being in all facets of life.

Having spent many years in the Far East as a meditator and meditation teacher, studied various religions and spiritual paths, and familiarized with the sciences including evolutionary process, cosmology, quantum mechanics, and neuropsychology, Horan integrates the essence of his life's knowledge into this book and its workbook.

"Vigilance of the Heart" traces the state of man's innate perfection. It provides a map for readers to discover their whereabouts in the vast spaces of self-development and spiritual endeavor, as well as a compass to set new directions in the quest for personal fulfillment. Additionally, it provides a gateway to the experience that "everything we most deeply hope to attain is already attained, for at the heart of all our experience lies perfection."

This self-help guide starts out as a journey of the heart and mind. It comes full circle as mindfulness, heartfulness and playfulness merge into a provocative, yet compelling way for understanding one's self and the world. The book also introduces the depth at which mindful, heartful and playful practice can really go.
