About the Author
Trey was born in Asheville, North Carolina, and still lives in the nearby area. He attended college at Western Carolina University, earning several masters degrees in business. He started a web site development company at the age of 18 and spent some time as a business consultant. He eventually found himself running the family business, an academic conferencing and publishing company. When Trey was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2004 at the age of 31, he started trying to make sense of a world that he thought he already knew. His research took him well beyond the realm of business to a study of science and medicine, including everything from biology to physics to alternative healing practices. Looking to fill in the gaps in what these subjects were missing, he began studying various religions, shamanism, metaphysics, spirituality, meditation, and eventually discovered non-duality and the idea of enlightenment. He then realized that self-realization was what he had been seeking all along. He began blogging about his awakening experiences and how the teachings of non-duality were positively impacting his state of being. His writings would eventually become his first book, "A Seeker's Guide to Inner Peace: Notes to Self." Trey is the co-founder of the Asheville Sangha online community (http://www.AshevilleSangha.com), which was developed for people interested in non-duality, self-realization, meditation, enlightenment, etc. He also facilitates Awakening Support Group meetings in the Asheville area. Trey invites contact and exchange with any reader who feels a draw or a need. You can reach him, and follow his current writings through his on-going blog or Facebook.

Chapters 39, 43 and 49 opened my eyes and helped me with finding some deeper truths about myself.THe words in this book came from his heart and I have to say it was such gift to me and it really reached my heart.
The book is a journal of life situation encounters that reflect deep insights and realizations. They skillfully support the inner pathway to conscious freedom and inner peace. Throughout the book, Trey shares inspiring quotes, recommended books, helpful practices and meditations to meet those apparent obstacles the seeker meets. He then gently points toward the ever open doorway to the light that one genuinely is. The "Notes to Self" demonstrate a deeply contemplated life that is fully enriched by direct understanding.
A Seeker's Guide is the seeker's choice.

Katie Davis, Author, "Awake Joy"
This book offers lots of wisdom and practical steps to help you lead a happy and peaceful life, moreover you will be able to relate with the experiences shared by Trey.
This book is the manifestation of the author's passion for Truth. I had some real "Aha" moments while reading this book and was really touched.
Trey was stuck with Epilepsy when he was 31 years old in the year 2004. He turned this tragedy in his life into an opportunity by trying to know more about himself and the way he could heal himself. His quests lead him to study science, medicine, physics, biology and alternative healing practices.
As he dwelled deeper, he found himself studying various religions, shamanism, metaphysics, spirituality, meditation and then he ultimately found advaita and the idea of cosmic consciousness.
If you're going through a difficult time right now and you really need to take a step back and reflect, then I recommend this book. It might be just what the (Shahman) Doctor ordered.
One of the most interesting aspects of Trey Carland's book is the arrangement into two-three page chapters written on diffent dates and in different contexts. It is an easy book to pick up at any time and find a few gems of wisdom that may help in your journey. His reference list is awesome and his use of the work of others throughout his book gives the reader a great sense of what the other authors are writing about. I highly recommend this for yourself and for gifts for fellow seekers!
