"Schoeninger brings an impressive degree of expertise and experience to the book, which helps elevate it over self-help books of its kind. Core to the book's effectiveness is Schoeninger's optimism about what anyone is capable of achieving. He is clearly convinced of the efficacy of his method, which should inspire readers to feel the same. Schoeninger's system for gaining inner peace is well-organized and eloquently expressed, making this book a uniquely effective work of spiritual self-help." Self-Publishing Review

"In this guide to mindfulness as a tool toward wellness and satisfaction, the author provides methods to gain insights and honor emotions with the respect and validation they deserve.

Schoeninger (Keys to Inner Power, 2013) delivers a work that sets itself apart from other wellness books by offering ample exercises and journaling opportunities that make the reading experience deeply personal. Focused on calming the mind and building an innovative perspective of the world rather than reactive habits, the manual challenges readers to step back from conflicts or uncomfortable situations to examine what values are at play and what others might be feeling.

In one section, the author discusses pain with a close examination of the emotions that it arouses, including anxiety and worry. Schoeninger challenges readers to examine their belief systems as they deal with anguish and whether it is a negative, fearful experience or simply a sensation. Developing these insights, the author explains, can keep trauma from derailing readers’ lives, and even turn it into something positive, such as inner power and opportunities to grow.

Another common theme is abandoning victimhood. The book discusses two important concepts: “Letting Go of How You Think Things Are” and “The Primary Mistake” that all humans make: believing things are the way they see them, and identifying who they are based on their own perceptions. These traps, according to Schoeninger, close the mind rather than opening it to fresh experiences, new awareness, and increased wellness.

One of the volume’s strongest sections involves the exploration of “Inner Smiling,” a practice of allowing warmth and positivity to flood the body through meditation. The author deftly describes in detail a multistep process for engaging in this healthy exercise, which can train the mind and body to unwind more readily. Relaxation is a primary thread here, as the author considers it a key to creativity, heightened mental and physical abilities, and self-esteem.

A valuable, easy-to-read, positive manual on relaxing the mind, finding perspective, and journaling one’s way to self-awareness." Kirkus Reviews

"'Clear Quiet Mind' by Kevin Schoeninger is an excellent tool for someone who is just starting their meditation journey as well as for someone who has been practicing meditation for years! He gives simple and practical actions to use right away. If the reader implements these steps right away he/she will have immediate results (I know i did!). What I love are the personal stories he uses as examples and how they connect with the topic he is discussing. I have a background in science and so I also appreciate how he discusses the connection of science with spiritual/emotional health and meditation. I will definitely read this book again and again to sharpen my skills and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to enhance their journey in meditation and spiritual/emotional health!!"

The processes are simple and easily repeatable, and the results palpable. Very worthwhile read."

Deep inner peace doesn't depend on circumstances. It doesn't depend on how much money you have in the bank, how much insurance you have, or what you own.  It doesn't depend on anything that happens in the world.  Instead, you find it by practicing simple cues that lead to a clear quiet mind.  Therefore, inner peace is always available.Â

In this book, I show you how to find your clear quiet mind in four simple steps.  These steps transform moments of anxiety into excitement, anger into love, judgment into acceptance, depression into inspiration, doubt into confidence, and fear into faith.

The deep inner peace of a clear quiet mind improves focus and decision-making; helps you communicate more effectively and resolve conflicts more easily; reduces stress and fatigue; boosts energy and resilience; and empowers you with intuitive insight about "who you are" and "what you are here to do," so you can achieve your goals!

You can do this—and I'll guide you every step of the way.  As you follow the steps of The Clear Quiet Mind Process, I think you'll be surprised and even amazed at what you discover about yourself.Â

Are you ready to experience a clear quiet mind?
