In Jillian's debut book, Deep Listening, published by Rodale Books, she presents her signature Calm Body, Clear Mind, Open Heart program—a 10-step journey of self-exploration that she’s taught around the world. It centers on the science of Deep Listening, which allows us to pause and truly hear—often for the first time—what both our bodies and our minds are telling us. It kickstarts our relaxation response, calming muscular tension and setting the whole body up for deep healing, growth, and repair. It’s a new frontier in integrative wellness—the new mindfulness.

Watch Jillian's TEDx Talk on Metta Meditation
Friendship is as important to our health as getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising. In this talk Jillian Pransky tells us that this is old news. 2,500-years ago Metta meditation was presented as a path to befriend our selves and develop a greater capacity to connect deeply with others - in the playground of our mind.
Jillian presented her TEDx Talk about Metta Meditation, "MindPlay to Expand Love in Your Life,” in May at TEDxNavesink.
