Bare Naked at the Reality Dance is a wonderful and inspiring book about Suzanne's spiritual journey.

The book is aptly titled, because Suzanne shares the whole range of her human experience and I appreciated the candid writing style.

WOW! What a read! Bare Naked at the Reality Dance is a wonderful, uncommonly wise book -- great for women who see themselves as seekers and, I am sure, for many who don't. I do identify as a seeker, and am a teacher of yoga and meditation as well as being a trained spiritual director. I felt blessed by Suzanne's pearls of wisdom from the moment I dove in. I relished every word of the no-holds-barred, nitty-gritty journey she graciously shares. I found myself highlighting and rereading passages again and again, so that her insightful spiritual messages could sink in and have a direct impact on me. Where many other authors write about the person they want to be, not who they actually are, Suzanne honestly shares herself -- her life, her fears and her desires, her growth process. Her unrelenting honesty allows us to have our own "aha" moments right along with hers. As someone who has been to India and to the Kripalu Yoga Center (the ashram that was Suzanne's longtime spiritual home), I was particularly taken with those sections. But you don't have to know or care about India or ashrams to enjoy this beautifully written, colorful and very helpful book. I expect it to gain a wide audience once the word is out. I cannot wait for book two!

For some reason I am really fascinated by how others live their lives and what happens to them along the way. That's why I mostly read biographies and nonfiction. And that is why I was drawn to Suzanne Grenager's story, which held me spellbound from page one. I could not put it down and did not want it to end! Suzanne writes very well, and the reader feels like she is sitting in the room with her. And the reader likes her, because she is struggling to be honest! Whether she knows it or not, that is beautiful.

I could relate to a lot of what Suzanne uncovered for herself, which often has to do with facing down her ego (or fear of it). I think she is too hard on herself for having a natural desire to succeed. To me, her ego is a healthy one. For rather than dwelling on the wish to have a successful book, Suzanne wants to make a difference, and with this book, she does. There is a rich purpose behind her words--to reach out with the offering of her life to encourage others on their paths. This is her life's work, and her gift. If this is *Bare Naked at the Reality Dance: Journal One* (as the cover says it is), I can't wait for Journal Two!

Bare Naked at the Reality Dance is a wonderful and inspiring book about Suzanne's spiritual journey. If you are on your spiritual path, you may find yourself relating to her experiences, as I did. I found it helpful to see the struggles and decision-making process of another woman in an intimate way that I normally would not have access to. Whether the struggles are similar to yours or not doesn't matter. Suzanne teaches us to love and appreciate ourselves as we grow into authentic human beings--and allow others to accept and appreciate us for whom we really are, unique human beings.

The use of sidebars with explanations helped me understand words and situations that otherwise would have left me wondering. Suzanne has such a talent for words and alliteration and keeps the story alive with colorful descriptions of her feelings.

She asked herself questions that I also found helpful to ask myself. Acknowledging that there is always growth along with the struggle is encouraging. It is a very deep and thoughtful book and Suzanne's humility in deciding to share this intimate journey is, in itself, inspiring.

Congratulations to Suzanne in this first of a series of deeply personal books, which have the potential to inspire many, many women. Give yourself the gift of this book!

I am halfway through reading Suzanne Grenager's graceful, honest and often amusing book for the SECOND time, something I am not typically inclined to do. I knew I had to read it again one night after I'd finished it and was feeling down. It is speaking to me even more profoundly than the first time. Suzanne's doubts and struggles feeling so familiar to me. "Bare Naked at the Reality Dance" has brought more inspiration, peace and joy to my life than I had thought possible. Suzanne's journey to self love and particularly, the way she listens to her heart and gut, have taught me that it is ok to nourish myself. She has given me courage to seek what my heart desires. And while my yoga practice has been mostly physical in the past, this book has inspired me to become a Seeker on a path to tranquility and a growing sense of "rightness." Thank you, Suzanne, you are indeed the awakener and spiritual scribe your heart is urging you to be!

As an avid reader and seeker, I would not write a glowing review unless I felt it was authentic. From the moment I started reading this book, I could hardly put it down. Suzanne has framed her thought stream in a way that is interesting and insightful. There are so many gems in this book like this quote: "To live without letting life dazzle us-blow us wide open-is to miss the show, like a blind man gazing at the sun."

Being a viewer of Suzanne's inner world was like recognizing myself. Especially meaningful to me was the chapter on her return to India where she revisits the geography of her youth and finds the painful place we all know in later years of realizing that a part of us is becoming more distant in the rear view mirror. ( I confess to tearing up when I read this chapter)

The design of the book is very appealing to me because of the little handwriting quotes and explanation boxes. Unlike other spiritual or self help books, we learn from being the observer of Suzanne and her adventure. The book is aptly titled, because Suzanne shares the whole range of her human experience and I appreciated the candid writing style.
