“Accessible, profound, and clear, the wisdom of Deep Listening grants us a chance to greet our habitual stress with new eyes of kindness and compassion. Through concise, consistent, and cumulative practices, Jillian provides us with the context to live more openheartedly and transform our ways of seeing and being.”
—Elena Brower, author of Art of Attention and Practice You
“Jillian has a way of being with you through the pages of this book so that you immediately trust her as if she were a tried and true friend. She wants you to reap the benefits of an art form that she is passionate about. Her detail to setting up yoga poses creates a depth of relaxation that few have touched, and her honesty will open up your own heart. Her intention is to get us to listen deeply, which is exactly what the world needs now. She is successful in that goal.”
—Colleen Saidman Yee, author of Yoga for Life
“Deep Listening by Jillian Pransky is the fruit of her own deep inner listening and is her gift to those who have ears to hear. Literally, each page is filled with practical, sage advice gleaned from many years of practice, many years of deep listening, and the wisdom accrued from a life well-lived.”
—Erich Schiffmann, author of Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving Into Stillness
“Deep Listening blends essential aspects of the vast wisdom traditions of yoga and Buddhism that will benefit yoga enthusiasts and meditators alike. Step by step, Jillian offers a powerful and wonderfully crafted program that brings us deeply into our own sense of wholeness and helps us inhabit an integrated and heart-centered practice.”
—Ethan Nichtern, author of Dharma of the Princess Bride and The Road Home
“Deep Listening inspires mindfulness even when it’s hard to sit still. It teaches how to be alone without zoning out and without seeking to escape. With the same loving, down-to-earth wisdom she brings to her classes, Jillian Pransky helps you access a sense of well-being. This book is a delight to work with, essential reading and practice for everyone who needs to slow down and relax—that is, for pretty much everyone in our hectic world.”
—Emily Barton, author of The Book of Esther and Brookland
“With Deep Listening, Jillian Pransky invites us to join her in letting go of tightly held beliefs, identities, and muscles so that we might discover how it feels to be comfortable in our own skin, grounded, and content with ourselves.”
—Kaitlin Quistgaard, editor at large for Mindful and former editor-in-chief of Yoga Journal
“In her book, Deep Listening, Jillian Pransky teaches us how to inhabit our bodily experience rather than be mere spectators to it. She invites readers to attend to patterns of thinking, moving, feeling and even breathing as pathways to change the possibilities the world holds for us by changing our potentialities. Her book opens the door for us to begin to grow and change.”
—Ruella Frank, Ph.D., founder and director of the Center for Somatic Studies, and author of Body of Awareness: A Somatic and Developmental Approach to Psychotherapy

Jillian’s writing is evocative, without being ‘preachy’ or 'new-agey’ - it’s clear, accessible, and universal. She brings the authority of science (relax and response theory, along side mindfulness/MBSR) with intimate stories and examples from her vast experience as a master teacher, mother, and practitioner. It’s cumulative journey that’s grounding, rested, and reminds you to give yourself permission to pause.
If you are new to Mindfulness, Daily Practice, or Restorative yoga- check this book out- it’s a great introduction that will continue to build in your life. For those whose journey with these practices are more familiar, this book is a master handbook.
If you haven't heard her internet interviews or her TED Talk, I'd recommend those to everyone and I'd highly recommend her book to anyone (I've given her book to several people).
Even if you are a long-time yogi, this book will be useful.
I've studied with and been a student of Jillian's for years- her humor and intelligence put you at ease and inspire you. This book will too.
