I had the great honor of writing the forward for this beautiful book. I've read a great many "self-development" books but this one, and all the books by Ariel & Shya Kane are something special. Because when I read their books not only do I understand the concepts within but, while reading, I experience them too. While reading Practical Enlightenment I felt a softening within, a experience of being gentle with myself and knowing that my life was perfect just as it was. And who could ask for m ...more

Enlightenment is a lofty topic. Hearing the word summons images of European philosophers surrounded by books or Eastern monks mediating on rocks. However “Practical Enlightenment,” this latest book from Ariel & Shya Kane, offers a very real approach to enlightenment for our current modern era that is outside the norm of what most of us are taught (basically, that we need to experience pain, difficult circumstances and/or suffering in order to have a sense of well-being, happiness and fulfill ...more

There are books preserving tales full of wisdom. They are told from generation to generation. This book is full of true stories and experiences by Ariel and Shya Kane and many of their friends telling about living the life to the full. These are true tales about being here, being kind to oneself, finding and discovering own truth and oneself. I was inspired and experienced enlightenment many times in every chapter.
Ariel and Shya created something amazing with this book, as with all their books.

Practical Enlightenment takes a look at the nature of our existence and teases apart the specific ways we think, feel, and respond within ourselves and to our environment.
For example, I used to think being upset was weak or at least embarrassing. Without realizing it, I would pretend everything was "cool" to others and myself. The result of this strategy was a series of internal and external outrage that plagued my ability to have successful relationships or feel well in myself for any length o

It’s a bit hard to put into words how truly amazing this book is. The experience of reading it is almost like a spa treatment - as I turned the pages, my worries and concerns fell effortlessly away and I experienced a deep feeling of peace and wellbeing. It is also an incredible, practical guidebook for living life without stress and anxiety. I’d read a lot of books on personal development over the years, and while they often made sense to me conceptually, I could rarely put them into practice. ...more

I used to wonder & question if enlightenment only happened for a few chosen people - like Buddha, Jesus or the Dali Lama. But deep down I knew that it had to be possible for everyone.  This book is the answer. Enlightenment is possible for all of us! I love how Ariel & Shya Kane introduce enlightenment as a life style and not an achievement. Since reading this book, I am feeling comfortable being me and I'm having fun and experiencing satisfaction in my life. The authors' "practical" app ...more

Enlightenment Comes from Within

It is possible to have enlightenment in our lives. Ariel & Shya Kane’s newest book, Practical Enlightenment, contains stories that bring the reader on a journey of discovering new possibilities. “It’s All About The Little Things” is one of my favorite chapters. After reading it, I saw how our culture is forward thinking, which can lead to missing out on sweet moments in our everyday lives. Practical Enlightenment includes being there for a sip of coffee, a smil

The book was given to me by a close friend. Usually I would not take the time to read a book like this but the book really engaged my interest. I found myself identifying with lots of chapters in the book. I re-read it often and have bought copies for my friends. Do yourself a favour and read this book. Enjoy
