The Power of Isolation: How Silence is Golden by Janine Vance is a thought-provoking and insightful book for all those readers who are trying to survive in adverse circumstances and find a connection with their inner self. The book speaks about Buddha, his principles and teachings, and his journey to becoming an ascetic. The Noble Eightfold path advocated by Buddha opens readers up to wisdom, concentration, and morality and will help them imagine endless possibilities. The author's words will enable readers to acknowledge their inner light and become caring to the people around them. It will also guide readers when it comes to silencing their minds and using it for self-reflection and rejuvenation. Silence is golden and this book encourages everyone to practice silence and become connected with the universal oneness.

The Power of Isolation is profound and speaks about the benefits of meditation which will help readers to connect to the Universal Energy which works as good therapy for the body and mind. It will also help readers believe in themselves and develop new thoughts so that they are compassionate and empathetic, not only to themselves but also to others. It is a good book for all those readers who are interested in empowering the self and developing communication with the Sacred Energy Life Force, otherwise known as the Soul. There is a lot of information in this book on how to have a greater rapport with the body, mind, and soul. The writing exercises at the end of the book are good for self-reflection and give readers a chance to make changes in their perception of the world in and around them for the better.

I think the title of the book is slightly misleading - for me it conjures up images of going to a cabin in the middle of nowhere for some self imposed isolation. The book is more about using moments of silence to tune in to your self and your world around you. The author talks about moments that are longer spans of purposeful meditation or even just a simple walk while listening to your inner self. The focus is heavy on meditation and journaling to clear and free your mind, but also discusses themes from Buddhism and Taoism as well as Reiki for a complete picture of mindfulness. As someone who identifies as being an introvert, having moments of silence and isolation are things that feed my soul. I haven't purposefully spent time doing meditation or silent reflection because I always figure there isn't time or the situation isn't "right". This book will help you to get past those notions and help you actually put these silent moments into practice. I definitely think this is a worthwhile book for anyone looking to explore the "self" or anyone just needing advice on how to slow down and be more mindful. A great read!

The Power of You

This collection of 26 essays--some long, some short--was originally put together by the author for herself to come back to when she needed to refresh and renew. I think the title, The Power of Isolation, isn't wholly accurate. Isolation suggest that we need to be shut off from everything and everyone to tap into whatever power she is talking about. But that is not the case. All the essays do have to do with the self, so maybe a better title would be The Power of Self. Sometimes self is explored in relation to others, and other times, the exploration is completely within. The author is definitely into meditation, and some of the practices that aren't up straight meditation involve it to some degree--if you see meditation as bringing mindfulness and a certain presence to your reality. If you're into metaphysics at all, this is an interesting read that will get you thinking and sometimes doing!

I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
