More About the Author

In a unique blend of insight, wisdom and humour, Mike brings together the three key strands of 21st century - self-awareness, emotional/spiritual intelligence and continuous 'unlearning'.

Mike is an author of twelve books on how to expand, deepen and fine-tune your self-awareness and thereby restore the true nature of your 'being' which is peaceful, loving and contented. He illustrates how you can never permanently lose your authentic self or your true nature, only block it, sabotage it and avoid it. Any moments of stress, suffering or sorrow, are symptoms of such a 'temporary' loss.

Mike talks, teaches and tutors across the world on topics such as self-management, emotional resilience, liberating leadership, difficult conversations and 'continuous unlearning'.

He says in his latest book MINDSETS:

"If you are like the vast majority of us then no one taught you how to understand and manage your self. No one showed you how, as a 'being of consciousness', you actually work. No one could help you to realize who you 'really' are and what you are here to do. It's not an academic subject. It doesn't even come under 'parental guidance' because they probably didn't know themselves. It's not even in the domain of psychology, psychiatry or any therapy! It's in the territory of self-awareness and self-realization which are the foundations for self-management. Cultivate each of these aspects of self-understanding and all is gradually revealed from 'inside out'.

Thirty five years ago, after an intense period of stressful living, I started to realize all this. Fifteen years ago I started to write about it. This past year three more books were published on how to be well, be clear and be your self. When you are well, when you have clarity, when you are being authentic, your happiness follows naturally.

Books don't change you. No book can actually change the way you think, what you feel, the decisions you make and how your life will unfold. That's your job. But they do provide signposts and signals, insights and wisdom, inspiration and guidance. They 'help' you to realize and know for self how to live your life with greater clarity and compassion, satisfaction and success, love and laughter. Above all, laughter!"

A great starting point 12 Jun. 2003
By C. Fletcher - Published on
Format: Paperback
I suffered through most of my twenties with a pretty debilitating anxiety disorder, which unfortunately has recently come back to check up on me. I found Mike George's short-but-to-the-point book helpful in diffusing and alleviating many of the mental circumstances that contribute to anxiety.
With short, bite size chapters illustrated with soothing water-colors, LEARN TO RELAX touches on all of the important tools needed to unweave the warp of stress and anxiety that tends to bind us in knots. Mike George covers the principles of deep breathing, meditation, visualization techniques, and also shows how to use the formidable powers of the imagination to heal the body and mind from within.
This book isn't a comprehensive manual on relaxation, but it wasn't meant to be. Rather, it's a portable, user-friendly sampler that will help you take the first steps down the path of relaxation and healing. If you get something from this book, you'll definitely want to explore the subject further, but this is a great place to start.

Practical, simple, effective. Every word is valuable. 16 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you want to be in control of your life this is an excellent beginning. This book is special and different from all relaxation books I've ever read. It's easy to notice that the author has experienced everything he teaches, making it very practical, yet comprehensive. The text is focused, clear and objective, so that you can easily work on the causes of your stress, anxiety, fear or unhappiness. It's impressive!!!

It saved me! 12 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was stressed out in a hotel room trying to find a job, apartment, etc., to relocate to another city. I happen to come across this book on a shopping venture and bought the book. It totally helped me make it through that stressful week. The book itself is one of the most beautiful books I've seen -- artwork, paper quality, readings. The various topics and practice tools are short and to the point which makes the resulting relaxation quickly achieved. I actually bought additional copies of this book and sent them to friends who were also going through difficult periods in their life. I highly recommend this book.

Fabulous Book! 16 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is really one of the best books about relaxation that I've seen. The artwork in the book alone is relaxing but the authors words and little 'exercises' in the book are so helpful. Wonderful book.
