The Divine Openings Playbook
The Divine Openings Playbook is Melinda Gates's companion guide and journal for Things Are Going Great In My Absence by Lola Jones. This is not a workbook! Instead, it's a hands-on, fun, play-along guidethat will help you more deeply embody its teachings and enhance their practical value in your daily life.
Book price is $24 plus $4 shipping.
Things Are Going Great in My Absence opens you to the ever-present flow of Grace and returns you to your rightful place in the center of that flow, as long as you don’t resist. As a longtime practitioner of mindfulness-based bodywork and a lifetime possessor of a strong, logical mind, Melinda Gates is intimately familiar with the ways we do resist.
In this Playbook, Melinda gently yet skillfully invites you into the direct experience you are having (where Grace truly lives and breathes) while also helping your mind relax and accept the invitation.
Speaking to the mind in its own language, she breaks down specific concepts and practices into small, soothing, individual steps, making it easier for you to understand, access, and experience your place in the flow of Grace.
For everyone wanting to more deeply embody their experience of Divine Openings, this hands-on Playbook will inspire and allow you to step more fully into the life you desire. It will awaken your senses, engage your heart and soothe your mind so that it becomes even easier to let go and let The Divine do the heavy lifting.
Melinda has a gift for creating space for others to transform in—I know she does this brilliantly in her one-on-one sessions, and she's done the same thing here with this Playbook. This is a wonderful companion to Lola Jones's Things Are Going Great In My Absence, and it truly reflects what Melinda does best: creating space for you to go deeper.—Donna Wetterstrand, Divine Openings Guide and Former Head of the Certified Guide Program
