More About the Author
In the eighties, I moved my base of operations to Europe, working as a therapist and educator and writer - and found people seriously eager to plunge into the deeper mind-management methods I'd been developing. Also - after a number of fulfilling and enlightening but not-quite-right relationships, I finally found the love of my life in Switzerland ... and then off we went to Hawaii to start a family (most fulfilling of all) and go deeper into mind-brain explorations, culminating in the late '80s with the creation of the BrightMind Network and the very beginnings of what is now called The WizeWell Process.
Our boys grew up and went to college in California, and after almost 20 years in paradise, Birgitta and I moved 2 years ago to Santa Cruz and are now working over the hill in Silicon Valley - where finally the times are right for my 'cognitive shifting' and innovation-activation training to be well received. During the last decade I've been finalizing my life work developing short-form awareness-expansion techniques and Focus Phrase methods for quickly quieting the mind and shifting into present-moment engagement and enjoyment.
Quite a number of related books have emerged along the way - and now Birgitta and I are fully engrossed in launching a new mind-tech company called WizeWell. Most of the 2 dozen John Selby books you'll find on sale at Amazon have led up to these new cognitive tools -

For the first five teachers, he focuses on the open acceptance of reality as it is. He considers the unconditional surrender to the Ultimate to be the main aim of spiritual life, viewed from both the Eastern perspective of absorption into a nameless reality and from the Western perspective of loving oneness with God.
In discussing the last two teachers (who are less well known), he focuses on self-awareness. This balances the previous emphasis on surrendering the mind and will with practices designed to make self-knowledge blossom.
Overall, this book is excellent and is a worthy guide on the spiritual path.
What I am most impressed with is the follow up care that you can receive on the internet. The web site provides you with audio teaching to back up what you read in the book and I have mever seen this done before.
I highly reccomend this book to beginners and advanced students as well...if you do not get anything by reading it then your mind needs to be more open.
