The Freedom of Being
At Ease with What Is
By Jan Frazier
Praise for The Freedom of Being
"In The Freedom of Being, Jan Frazier guides us to experience the exquisite stillness outside of the illusion of time, and re-introduces us to the experience of eternity. Through reading and practicing the principles in this book we learn not only the power of being present, but also how to bring peace to each situation we encounter."
—Dr. Lee Jampolsky, author of How to Say Yes When Your Body Says No
"Spiritual teacher, Jan Frazier, has blessed us with another life-changing, smashing book, The Freedom of Being. It should be the book we all get at birth —a roadmap to show us how to create a soul-satisfying life. You'll learn simple, yet effective, ways to reawaken to the splendor of YOU and carve out a life that's rich with meaning and purpose. Once I started reading this gem- of-a-book, I couldn't put it down. Every page captivated me and resonated in my heart. It also helped me feel more empowered and uplifted. A compelling book, it's the perfect present to gift my friends and family. Kudos to Jan Frazier!"
—Susan Smith Jones, PhD, author of Walking on Air and The Joy Factor
"I heartily recommend Jan Frazier's The Freedom of Being, at ease with what is. The writing is clean, clear and bright, giving us an articulate and detailed map of the territory of awakening. Her map draws a multitude of distinctions between a life driven by ego and an awakened life, offering a look into her world as a bright guidepost for their own journey. She describes in intricate detail the interplay between the thought processes and whatever outer circumstances you find yourself in, explaining how changing those circumstances is not how to awaken. We don't need to fix our circumstances in order to be happy! Jan's teachings tell us that we awaken within whatever our circumstances are, giving us the opportunity to step into freedom in each moment. Crisis can even be an opening for awakening according to Jan and I hope her readers can apply this to the world situation at the moment, though perhaps this is more the task of my own recent book. This certainly is where our two books meet, where crisis becomes an opportunity, and where fear falls away to reveal a new vitality and a new consciousness."
—Alice Gardner, author of Life Beyond Belief and Finding Our Way Forward.
Praise for When Fear Falls Away
"Jan Frazier's When Fear Falls Away is a breathing translation into language of an advance in evolution that is available to the focused heart and the fortunate intention. She speaks of the causeless joy that permeates her. She is blessed. It is noted in the annals of the science of evolution that when reptiles evolved into birds, not only did they become freed from gravity, they also became able to dream. Reptiles do not —but birds dream. Imagine what other leaps in the evolution of consciousness might lie ahead. Might there be an evolution into mercy and awareness, into causeless joy and simple clarity?"
—Stephen Levine, author of Unattended Sorrow: Recovering from Loss and Reviving the Heart
"Grace still comes unbidden. It's time we listened."
—Larry Dossey, M.D., author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things
"This book will change your life. Line after line holds an idea you will return to for clarity and peace from this day forward. I found myself breathing in sighs of relief coupled with peace while reading and I will love rereading it because of how it made me feel. The hope that what happened to Jan Frazier can happen to all of us is guaranteed. As she says so eloquently, 'the recognition of choice' is all that's really necessary."
—Karen Casey, PhD, author of Each Day a New Beginning
"In When Fear Falls Away, Jan Frazier shows us the anatomy of epiphany and reminds us of the ever-present possibility of healing and freedom and grace. This book is a nightlight."
—Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, author of Kitchen Table Wisdom and My Grandfather's Blessings
"Read this delicious, liberating, radical book. It offers the best of gifts, finding the joy and love of your own freedom."
—Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart
"If you have ever wondered if a life filled with freedom and free of fear was possible, then this is the book for you. Jan Frazier shares her personal journey with a level of intimacy normally saved for one's closest confidants. The result is a book that serves as a beacon for anyone who is ready to experience joy on every level."
—Shelly Rachanow, author of If Women Ran the World, Sh*t Would Get Done
