Dennis Merritt  Jones

Throughout my lifetime, I've been on a quest to inspire and lift people to a higher expression of life. My personal vision is to guide people to their purpose, knowing that when one fully awakens to who they are and why they are on the planet, they begin to naturally share their gift with humankind and, in the process, create an enriching life for themselves and the world around them.

My most recent book, Your (Re)Defining Moments ~ Becoming Who You Were Born to Be, was released by Tarcher/Penguin/Random House on May 28, 2014.

My prior releases under the Tarcher/Penguin/Random House imprint, The Art of Uncertainty ~ How to Live in the Mystery of Life and Love It and The Art of Being ~ 101 Ways to Practice Purpose in Your Life, have both been recipients of Nautilus Awards which highlight books that offer new ideas and options for a better world for everyone. In addition, both writings have received Books for a Better Life Award from the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The Art of Uncertainty was also the lst runner-up in the 2012 Books for Conscious Living. Study Guides are available for both books as a free download at http://www.DennisMerrittJones.com. I am currently under contract for my fourth book with Tarcher/Penguin/Random House entitled, Abundance Rules - The 10 BeAttitudes of Prosperity, due for release in 2017.

In addition to my books, I am a columnist for the Huffington Post and for Science of Mind magazine. I am also a member of the Leadership Council for the Association for Global New Thought (AGNT), an organization whose mission is to consciously bring forth the evolving human and an awakened world through the practice of universal spiritual principles and the energy of unconditional love.

In my mentoring practice I work with people to re-establish their sense of connection with life. We each had that connection when we were born, but many people experience a bit of "amnesia" along life's journey, forgetting who they really are. A number of my mentoring clients are aspiring writers, life coaches, and public speakers who desire to find and develop their authentic voice, sharpen their communication skills, build an effective platform to take their message to the world, or publish their first book. Many of my clients are business professionals on a quest to find a deeper sense of inner peace in the midst of their hectic lives, or individuals who are seeking support in deepening their overall sense of direction, purpose and meaning in life. Mentoring with me is not to be confused with counseling. I accept only a limited number of clients at a time in order to be totally committed to the journey of each person. The focus of mentoring is to deepen your understanding of your life's purpose--to explore the aspects of your true purpose and actualize that purpose in all areas of your daily life. You'll learn the role that mindfulness plays in bringing your purpose into everything you say, think and do. In short, you'll begin to see yourself through new eyes--you will be led to redefine your self based on a deepened understanding of who you were born to be.
Mentoring entails one-on-one conversations with me via telephone or Skype, weekly. The work is personalized for each individual and consists of a combination of practices and disciplines such as reading, goal-setting, meditation, mindfulness practices, and deep self inquiry. The goal is to incorporate the awareness of universal principles operating in every area of your life 24/7. When you take the quest for meaning and purpose to a deeper level you will discover the person you were born to be.

I believe we each have the capacity and, ultimately, the responsibility to contribute something positive to this world, leaving it a better place than it was when we arrived. My teachings promote a contemporary, life-affirming, spiritually logical and positive outlook on life, which are reflected in my writings.

As a keynote speaker I am equally comfortable speaking to an audience seeking spiritual inspiration or to those seeking a purely secular motivational message. I use my understanding of universal principles to draw upon wisdom from both eastern and western philosophies. I believe that there is a deeper consciousness of unity, cooperation and reverence rising in humankind where the value of all life, regardless of ethnicity, geography, culture or sexual orientation, is considered sacred. I believe this consciousness of unity, cooperation and reverence for life and the planet will be one of the most significant influences upon society as we approach the challenges of 21st century living.

I look forward to connecting with many like-minded friends and professionals through the MindBody network!

Peace, Dennis

Remembering to Remember Who We Are and Where We Are In Times of Uncertainty

* THIS eBOOK is an excerpt from the book, The Art of Uncertainty - How to Live In the Mystery of Life and Love It. Used with permission of the publisher: The Art of Uncertainty is an invitation to the reader to consider its essential message: learning to love the unknown by staying present in the moment. If the difficulties of recent years have taught us anything--particularly those who "did everything right" and still saw it all fall apart--it's that none of us has as much control over our lives

"A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a Cathedral." ~ Antone de Saint-Exupery Several years ago, while in Barcelona, Spain, I had the opportunity to visit Catalan architect, Antonio Gaudi's, one-of-a kind, "Sagrada Fam'lia."

At some point or another in our lives we have all been the target of gossip and rumors, as well as participants in the spreading of them. It is insidious, toxic and, yet, oh so juicy. Unless we are mindful and vigilant, it's quite easy to fool ourselves into believing that what is coming from our minds, mouths and hearts is harmless idle chatter. That's how gossip works. It's hard to detect when we..
