Biography from:

BEST-SELLING "LETTING GO" author Guy Finley's encouraging and accessible message is one of the true bright lights in our world today. His ideas go straight to the heart of our most important personal and social issues -- relationships, success, addiction, stress, peace, happiness, freedom -- and lead the way to a higher life.

Finley is the acclaimed author of The Secret of Letting Go, The Essential Laws of Fearless Living and 35 other major works that have sold over a million copies in 18 languages worldwide. In addition, he has presented over 4,000 unique self-realization seminars to thousands of grateful students throughout North America and Europe over the past 25 years and has been a guest on over 400 television and radio shows, including appearances on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, NPR and many others. He is a member of the faculty of the Omega Institute and a daily contributor to Beliefnet.

Finley is Director of Life of Learning Foundation, the non-profit self-realization school in Merlin, Oregon, and his popular Key Lesson e-mails are read each week by 200,000 subscribers in 142 countries. His work is widely endorsed by doctors, business professionals, celebrities, and religious leaders of all denominations.

Guy's career reached this point through a circuitous path. Born into a successful show business family, he is the son of Late-Night TV and radio pioneer Larry Finley. His childhood friends were the sons and daughters of the most famous celebrities in the world. As a young man Guy enjoyed success in a number of areas including composing award-winning music for many popular recording artists including Diana Ross, The Jackson 5, Billy Preston, The Four Seasons, as well as writing the scores for several motion pictures and TV shows. From 1970-1979 he wrote and recorded his own albums under the Motown and RCA recording labels.

Throughout his youth, Guy suspected there was more to life than the type of worldly success that led to the emptiness and frustration he saw among his own "successful" friends and colleagues. In 1979, after travels throughout North America, India and the Far East in search of truth and Higher Wisdom, Guy voluntarily retired from his flourishing music career in order to simplify his life and to concentrate on deeper self-studies.

In addition to his writing and appearance schedule, Guy presents four inner-life classes each week at Life of Learning Foundation in Merlin, Oregon. These classes are ongoing and open to the public. Click here for more details about Guy's ongoing talks.

JUST AS BRIDGES must be built between cultures and countries, so too must bridges be built to span the distance between the great wisdom teachings of centuries past and our own times. Let Go and Live in the Now is such a bridge. It's gentle but sometimes shocking revelations reach right into the mind of the seeker of the higher life, filling it with a palpable new light that helps bridge the distance between who we are at present and what we may yet become. Each chapter is filled with timeless principles presented in a current context. These principles are made practical and are empowered by the numerous ways in which the author suggests their application to modern-day life. Much more than just a set of “how to” instructions, this is a book whose thought-provoking stories and penetrating insights work directly upon the heart of the reader, to help start the internal process of self-healing. Let Go and Live in the Now is a living example of the timeless wholeness to which it leads its reader. It is gentle and striking, urgent and restive, serious and light-hearted. This book is for any person who longs not just to discover the truth of themselves, but who wishes to become a conscious participant in the great transformation of our Living Universe.
