Peace in the Present Moment with Michele Penn
Conceived by award-winning photographer Michele Penn, the book Peace in the Present Moment combines quotes from Eckhart Tolle’s, A New Earth, and Byron Katie’s, A Thousand Names for Joy, with detailed, vibrant, and inspirational photographs of nature’s most precious gift, the flower.
The inspiration for these pictures came from the uplifting and thought provoking quotes and insights of two extraordinary people.
*Eckhart Tolle is #2 on the 2014 list of “the most spiritually influential people in the world” as the #1 New York Times best selling author of The Power of Now and A New Earth.
Byron Katie is the founder of a revolutionary process, self-inquiry, called “The Work” and a New York Times best selling author. *Byron Katie is #11 on the same list of “the most spiritually influential people in the world.”
“I was privileged to be able to work with these two amazingly spiritual people whose words I matched with inspiring and uplifting pictures of nature at her most stunning.” Michele Penn

What will YOU Feel?
While photographing the flowers I am in touch with their essence so deeply that I feel God. These “soul shots,” as I call them, remind YOU to be present. Just walking past one of these flowers puts you in awe of nature’s beauty. I suspect that it will give you chills as it does for me. You will connect to that place inside yourself that you may be too busy to notice. Give your mind a break and enter presence while observing this floral art and allow your inspiration to flow. Join me in the place where I receive all my guidance and inspiration.
What will flowers inspire YOU to do? Expect to be awakened and connect to your spirit as I was.
Like living art, these photographs remind YOU to believe in yourself and become more conscious. YOU will feel and experience the present moment where peace and inspiration dwell. YOU can become more authentically who YOU are. YOU can become more of what YOU need and want.
Nature accepts what is. It’s not worried about the future, it lives in the present moment and it exhibits enormous patience. You cannot rush a flower to grow or make it open its petals before it’s time. You must be patient. If you allow it to bloom in its own time, then, and only then will you see the true beauty.
Reduce stress and experience serenity as you connect to the soul of the flower, the essence of who you are. Just looking at Michele’s “soul shots” will make you FEEL good.

Viewing Floral Photos . . .
“Studies have shown the health benefits of nature and viewing nature range from more rapid healing to less stress to improved mental performance and vitality,” says Richard Ryan, a professor of psychology, psychiatry and education at the University of Rochester and co-author of the study. He says, “Now we’ve found nature brings out more social feelings, more value for community and close relationships. People are more caring when they are around nature or pictures of nature. In another study, participants worked in a room with or without a few houseplants. In all cases, those who were exposed to natural elements – digital or otherwise – rated close relationships and community as more important than they did before the study. The more attention participants paid to natural scenes, the “nicer” they got.” Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin October 2009 35: 1315–1329, first published on August 5, 2009
Eckhart Tolle himself said “It’s miraculous that you made this happen, Michele. I know you will do more great things.”

Peace in the Present Moment – “Conceived by award-winning photographer, Michele Penn, Peace in the Present Moment combines quotes from Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth and Byron Katie’s A Thousand Names for Joy with detailed, vibrant pictures of nature’s most colorful and inspiring gift, the flower. Penn’s close-up photos, or what she calls the “soul shots” of the flower, are wedding with words from two of the most popular spiritual writers of our era. Having each inspired millions with their words of wisdom, Tolle and Katie appear together for the first time in one enlightening book. The end result is a full-color exposition of nature, serenity, and the peace that exists in the present moment.”
“Oprah Winfrey selected A New Earth for her book club in January 2008, and in March it was featured in a series of ten weekly webinars broadcast on Winfrey’s website. By March 23, 2008 the book had reached number one on the New York Times Best Seller List for “Paperback Advice.” In March, 2014, Oprah replayed the 10 weekly webinars on OWN – her TV network. According to Barnes and Noble the book became the fastest-selling title in the history of Oprah’s book club out of the 61 selections since the book club’s inception in 1996. Within four weeks of the book-club announcement 3.5 million copies had been shipped. By 2009, an estimated 5 million copies had been sold in North America.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_New_Earth
