Luke has worked in the areas of Recovery, Personal Wholeness and Mental Health for 15 years and has touched countless lives and helped people to achieve sobriety, overcome addictions and depression and raise their self-esteem.

ALL STORMS PASS; The Anti-Meditations is a different kind of meditation book. While there are some similarities with classic meditation books there are focused on tools and inspiration but also read like puzzles and beg for discussion. Some are hopeful and some pose darker questions about life, choices, who we have been and who we are becoming.

I found All Storms Pass to be a great collection of self-affirming and encouraging meditations. The style of the book, with a meditation on each page, lends itself to reading just one page at a time, or the whole book. The meditations touch on self esteem issues, depression, and troubled relationships, among other things. This is the kind of book I would keep around and pull out in times when I get down or need support.

Someone once told me that reading poems was like looking into the poet's soul. Luke Benoit's All Storms Pass: The Anti-Meditations consists of meditations that inspire, challenge, and guide the reader to look into their own soul and to find his or her true self. Benoit is a Certified Life Coach and a Certified Professional NLP Hypnotist. He assists people to cultivate healthy change, confront problems, and to seek joy within. His book is a compilation of meditations that he uses when helping people work through their issues. The poems help the reader to see that one of the biggest stumbling blocks that people encounter on their path to peace and happiness is themselves.

For those familiar with meditation books, Benoit's meditations might surprise you. There are some that may seem familiar and hopeful. Many of them offer thoughts that hard times give us strength and make us stronger. Some raise interesting issues, such as how one person can be toxic for us and consume our thoughts.

One of my favorite lines was "I need to be my Earth and not your moon." This line speaks volumes and demonstrates Benoit's ability to use poems to empower the reader to embrace their uniqueness and self and not let other's diminish their self-worth or worse, take over their lives and extinguish their light.

The author occasionally breaks away from the traditional meditation and provides some that are dark. For example, in one titled "The Fairy Tale of 9 Fingers" he writes of a woman who was wronged by her husband. The wife didn't leave him. Instead she asked a witch to cut off his finger, which she put in a jar, for his punishment.

Not all of the meditations are dark.

Format: Paperback
I love this book. It fell into my life during a rocky time of self-doubt, anxiety and regrets, and I started dog-earing pages five minutes into my first reading.

The title "All Storms Pass" is fitting since the book's brief passages (written in non-rhyming poetry format) focus on the transitory nature of life. At a whopping 635 pages, an alternate title might have been "The Big Book of Self-Esteem."

Author Luke Benoit, C.C., C.P.H. tells us up front: "If anyone ever told you that you were less than wonderful...they lied."

Benoit urges readers to share these "anti-meditations" with others to stimulate dialogue and promote healing. They function as the jumping off place for discussion rather than the end of it. "They beg for personal interpretation," says Benoit on the back cover, while acknowledging that "All of them require introspective rumination."

This is such a personal book and at the same most of us can relate to the struggle to gain peace and balance in our lives. Life Coach/Therapist Benoit has obviously suffered and continues to wage war against internal forces that threaten his peace of mind. This honest approach makes the book riveting.

Reading this book is like reading someone's life-journal, and as you gather the bits of wisdom, you realize you're looking in a mirror. What Luke Benoit has suffered and transcended one day at a time, each of his readers can suffer and transcend one page at a time, right along with him.

It is a brave masterpiece.

Each segment has an enticing title. My personal favorite is "Today I Will Stand Back and Leave You and Your Trip over There.

Format: Paperback
It will seem hard not to come across as making fun of this book. The author is a "certified" life coach, hypnotist, and advocates something called "anti-meditation." And, for a reviewer in Wisconsin, when someone talks about "surfing past your emotions" and "checking the cheap drama at the door," he knows Benoit is living in California.

Read all at once, these little one-page fortune cookies seem disposable, but wait... There are two players here, the author and the reader. And as a reader, thinking about one or two of these a day, I found I could provide my own context to each and come away with something meaningful. Sometimes dark, sometimes insightful these "All Storms Pass" allows us to consider the choices that make us who we are.

Ultimately, I am happy to have the book in my hands for what is going on in my life right now. And the right reader, at the right time and place will also feel this way. But that reader needs to be of an accepting mind.

We all accept or reject truth differently. Here's my poem on the subject:

Eating Truth

Each of my dogs swallows truth differently. Old
Flaubert, with caution, pawing at it first, before
he takes a bite. Gatsby gulps all that's offered
then spits out what he doesn't want. And Kafka,
who's part wolf, will only eat when no other dogs
are in the room. Sometimes this means he gets
merely what is left. Or is finding truth rejecting
what others will accept?

John Lehman, Rosebud Book
