Format: Paperback
Keith Merron’s book, “Inner Freedom,” is a must-read. I was delighted and honored to have Keith appear as a guest on my global VoiceAmerica.com talk radio show, “Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life!” to discuss the origins and themes of his book. Through engaging stories and clear examples, Keith helps us learn to stop living our lives according to others’ rules and begin getting in touch with our authentic selves to build the lives we dream of. His clarity, creativity, poignancy and practicality foster hope and possibilities for anyone looking to live with greater passion and purpose. Buy it for everyone on your holiday list. While you’re at it, buy one for yourself too. You won't be disappointed!

Let's be honest...This intriguing exploration into the origins, reasons, and common methods for limiting your living authentically in synch with your true purpose is NOT for everybody. It is NOT for the uncourageous, because Keith Merron puts a mirror up for you to look at your own scripts and BS you and society erect to disconnect you from…YOU. So the book demands self-honesty. It also takes DISCIPLINE--- doing what you don't want to do when you don't want to do it. Dr. Merron offers many strategies and journal-writing awareness exercises for unpeeling away the layers of armor that may be blocking you from deeper self-knowledge and freedom. These activities are an investment that you may skip over, so while the book's pages can fly by with Merron's insertion of interesting studies, personal anecdotes, and his sometimes alarmingly vulnerable self-disclosures, those readers who just seek a casual read by overlooking the self-discovery driven activities will be robbing themselves. Not everyone will make the time, but those who do "dive in" will find an experience in the spirit of a personal growth workshop that provides self-exploration that at times may lead to liberating, if scary, self-realizations. The book may strike some as too touchy-feely or "wu-wu," so if this kind of consciousness-raising isn't your bag, the book is NOT for you. But even if you are ambivalent, in the middle, as I tend to be, I recommend reading Inner Freedom with a mindset of what Ken Kesey used to advise: "Take what you need and let the rest go by." You'll find yourself with your nose pressed up against your values, biases, blocks, defenses, and…. possible doorways to relief. Again… NOT for the faint-hearted!

I just finished reading, or should I say 'working' Keith Merron's wonderful guide, Inner Freedom. And I use that word guide carefully. If you're reading this review, then you're more than likely attracted to the thought of inner freedom, and have probably read a book or two that might address this idea, perhaps even gone to workshops or retreats that claim to teach you this. This book felt to me like the best of these options; a book, which you can read at your own pace, and exercises akin to those you'd work in a workshop. This is not a book you can sit down and read and glean your path, but if you read and engage with the book, you'll reap rich rewards.

Dr. Merron's sharing of his own life story alongside shared wisdom of the ages, reinforced with exercises throughout the book that force you to stop and really consider what you've read, are a potent combination. I found myself changing (evolving?) in surprising ways as I read and worked these exercises. Sometimes in the way I see a challenge, but more often than not in how I'm engaged with someone else. It's hard to pinpoint what it is, but the feeling is indeed one of inner freedom. I have a better sense of what I'm bringing to a situation, and that gives me the freedom to engage with all of myself. Like any good teacher, the process has the potential to be as important as the material, and with Dr. Merron as the guide, I have found myself changed in subtle ways, and the workbook I've kept as I read this book ensure that the insights I uncovered won't fade away with time.

As with any personal growth, you need to do the work in order to get the gain. You have to earn it. If you're willing to put in the effort, then I'd say there is no better companion for you than this book. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This book starts with a beautiful expression of love from the author to his son. Role modelling an authentic and vulnerable communication, Dr. Merron shares his journey as a father and about how we, as parents, can project or transfer our own expectations/needs and feelings of inadequacy from our own cultural conditioning onto our children.

Dr. Merron then elegantly shows how this cultural conditioning, from our families, churches, schools etc have held many of us back in accessing and living from our deep soul's purpose. He says it is actually not that difficult for many of us to know our purpose, and there are many books and workshops about finding our purpose. But what is challenging is how we live it in our daily lives. He shares his own personal journey including the limited range of emotions he had several years ago and what impact that had on him and others close to him.

Dr. Merron discusses the symptoms of living inauthentically which can have a significant impact on individuals and our society as a whole. Mental health problems like depression, anxiety, self destructive habits and violent anger all contribute to the current state of our world.

Culminating in five promises that provide a useful structure and touchstone for living an authentic life, Dr. Merron shows practical ways to live more consistently with your soul's deepest desires and therefore live a more fulfilled life.

I highly recommend this book, especially for those feeling that they could live and contribute more!
