Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In Going Within, MacLaine asks tough questions of and gives good advice to the spiritual seeker. She has suffered, felt sorrow and anger, stress, fear, and anxiety, yet she has never allowed herself to be defined by her negative emotions. Instead she asks, "If we are not in harmony with ourselves, how can we possibly be in harmony with anyone else, much less the world that we inhabit?" MacLaine celebrates the independence that comes with the recognition of all emotions, both negative and positive. MacLaine has created many memorable roles as an actress but ironically younger adults may be more familiar with her work as a memoirist and spiritual seeker. In Out on a Limb, MacLaine reveals an intense and secretive loving relationship with a prominent politician, which sparked her quest for self-discovery. Fans of the actress's earlier works will be aware of her love of the journey. Her descriptions of her travels from Stockholm to Hawaii to Peru will stimulate even the most sedate armchair traveler wanting to see more of the world. MacLaine's exploration of life with her lover Gerry requires that she question lifelong relationships with close friends, giving new definition to the phrase "soulmate." Through it all, her candor, willingness to share her experiences, and independence take the listener into the personal life of an outspoken and interesting woman. MacLaine's books and audiocassettes have been best sellers for many years, and libraries with large pop culture, autobiography, and fiction collections should purchase this.APam Kingsbury, Alabama Humanities Fdn., Florence

From the Publisher

At last Shirley MacLaine reveals the secrets of her intimate journey of transformation. In three international bestsellers, Out On A Limb, Dancing In The Light, and It's All In The Playing, multi-talented Shirley MacLaine described her own ongoing spiritual journey in search of inner harmony and self-transcendence. Now this celebrated actress, social activist, and outspoken thinker shares an enlightened program of spiritual techniques and mental exercises to become healthier, happier, and more attuned to the natural harmony of the world around-and within-ourselves. In Going Within Shirley MacLaine answers many of the most challenging and important questions she has been asked about her experiences in seminars and interviews she has conducted from coast to coast. Transformation is at heart of her profound and inspiring message-the power to shape our lives, to find inner peace and awareness, and to reach highest potential in relationships, at work, and at home. Candid, often controversial, and always courageous, Shirley MacLaine opens the doors to an irresistible journey of discovery and revelation. By going within, she shows us how to reach a new level of love and harmony, reduce stress, release fear, and discover the joys of a new-and better-way of living. Use light, sound, crystals, and visualizations to increase your personal energy. Explore the power of meditation to align body, mind, and spirit. Understand and communicate with your hidden self. Learn the secrets of sexual fulfillment in a new age of commitment. Experience the stunning mysteries of psychic surgery and much more!

This sixth entry into the collection of Shirley MacLaine's spiritual odyssey, strays from the roots of the rest of the books. This guide is a guide to be in tune and in harmony with your self. Let me tell you, it helped me. She discusses the Chakras, Chanting, Sexuality, and the New Age Movement in general. An insightful and very informative read!!!

After reading this book and listening to the audio tape as well...I must say I was transformed. I used her tape to guide my meditations, during which I had a vision of my sister in the hospital. I called home and found out my sister was in emergency surgery and had almost died. If we just open our mind, it's amazing what we can see.

I have enjoyed all of the books by Shirley MacLaine, but these tapes have touched me and assisted me in so many ways. I recommend them to everyone in my metaphysical group who asks for a nice guided-meditation tape. The meditations are superb! I use the meditation that helps you find and balance your chakras all the time! In fact, I just had to order a new one because my old one finally wore out from such frequent use! These are great tapes for both beginners and long-time meditators.

Shirley has done it again! Through this book, she helped me get in touch with my life energies. Like her, I have suffered from anxiety throughout my life. This book taught me how I can channel positive energies that can be life-transforming.

The book will teach the reader about chakras and how to use visualization in order to create positive outcomes in your life and to increase spiritual awareness. It will help you open your mind to the possibility of higher forms of awareness who channel spiritual truths. It may also help you explore the possibility that you have had past lives and how they have impacted upon your current life experience. As in all of her books, she intimately shares her own life experience in a way that the reader can easily connect with.

As the author of a spiritually-themed novel entitled "The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude," I am always on the outlook for books that provide food for my soul. This was a book that did it for me. I have discovered that when I seek, I do find.

This is an absolutely wonderful book. I also purchased the meditation tape of Shirley Maclaine's. Shirley is someone I admire, for her intelligence, adventure, and ability to write so beautifully. Her courage goes without question. In reading many of her books, just about all of them, I find her beliefs in many things to be quite sound. We have an arrogance to think, we are all that's out there. Common sense, if we are
here, why can't others be elsewhere in a galaxy. "Going Within" helps one to understand that the ability to settle the mind, helps us to open more to a higher force. We become more peaceful, creative, understanding, and hopefully, more open to other things, studies, whatever. We also have a better understanding of who we are, and may have things we would like to change about ourselves. Just be open and calm.

Going Within by Shirley MacLaine is an absolute must for anyone who wants to get to the bottom of what makes us tick. It is a most spiritually enlightening look at what keeps us from growing as a species and what we can do to change that.
