The focus of her writing and teaching is on helping people be in the present moment and live the happy and fulfilled life that is possible and on shedding light on the ego and other programming that interferes with that. Gina's teachings are most similar to Eckhart Tolle's, Byron Katie's, Adyashanti's, and A Course in Miracles.

This book is like the scene in the movie where the hero, after an exhausting, arduous journey is searching for the sacred, secret text that is the master key to his/her further unfoldment. Finally, late at night in an ancient library, the hero stumbles upon this book and everything he/she is going through suddenly makes sense, like the proverbial piece that completes the puzzle and after which everything becomes clear and nothing is ever the same again. All of the searching is completed and there is just the continued deepening in the Self.
This is an incredible book. I have been reading spiritual literature for 30+ years and this came for me at the exact right time. It is essential reading and practice for anyone in the midst of Self-realization. The book provides expert guidance and practices. It explains the process of Awakening and provides the means to help you ground and stabilize your connection with the Self.Read more ›
With this work, Gina goes right into the root causes of suffering, which is the ego's false perception of the world. Through her words she explains how this happens and what we can do to get out of it. Each chapter is featured with exercises, from meditation to questioning our thoughts. As we work on these, we become less attached to material things and closer to peace and happiness. This book works very well with Eckhart Tolle's and Byron Katie's works.
Read this book once, then again and again. Forget about using a highlighter for the important parts. You'll end up marking every word.
Much of Gina's teaching focuses on Nonduality, and it is presented extremely well. She draws on her formidable background and the noticeable influence of her Zen teacher, Adyashanti. Because of the clarity of that teaching, the book would be important for that reason alone. But, in addition, various myths about enlightenment, seldom mentioned in similar books, are touched upon and dispelled.
Interestingly, Gina diverges from some of the minimalist, naturalistic interpretations many current teachers of Nonduality have adopted and, instead, blends traditional metaphysical ideas into her discussions of Nonduality.
Perhaps the most important chapter in the book is one devoted entirely to discussing the Heart, which, as described by the famous sage Ramana Maharshi, is the seat of Awareness. Gina points to it as a living reality and explains its intuitive nature and its subtle energy. Moreover, she assures that anyone can develop sensitivity to it. And that is a valuable truth. The Heart, as Presence discovered in the silence of Being, is a universal experience. This Presence is the expression of one's Self, the innate joy of one's own true nature.
Not surprisingly, the radiant joy of the Self can be felt in these pages. Gina's book, like the radical happiness it reveals, comes straight from the Heart.
