Ilchi Lee’s The Call of Sedona becomes a New York Times Bestseller.

CGI Holistic Fitness & Spa, in Closter offers a free meditation circle

Sundays at 4:00, starting March 4th, 2012.

The Call of Sedona: Journey of the Heart by meditation teacher, Ilchi Lee has become a New York Times Best
seller. It was number two in the Paperback, Advice & Misc. List this week, climbing from a number 13 ranking the previous week. Recently, the book also ranked on The Washington Post Bestseller, Indie Bestseller and USA Today Best-Selling Books lists. The result makes Lee the first Korean author to rank on the four important bestselling lists in the United States.

In the past two months, crowds of several hundred readers and fans gathered to watch Lee lecture at book signings at major Barnes & Noble locations throughout the United States and popular independent bookstores in and around New York City and Washington, DC, including stores like Books-A-Million, Book Revue, and One More Page. In addition to the crowds at the book signings, The Call of Sedona has inspired the formation of over 300 meditation circles around the country that use the book as a guide.

In The Call of Sedona, Ilchi Lee shares his personal memoirs and the inspirations he received in Sedona. The book also provides a range of advice on meditation and spirituality that will benefit anyone, anywhere. CGI Holistic Fitness & Spa is sponsoring a Meditation Circle, every Sunday at 4:00 pm which is free to anyone in the community looking to experience the breathing and meditation methods mentioned in the book.

Lee believes that his experiences in Sedona have informed his actions and helped him develop ways to reach more people around the world. He not only feels a strong connection to Sedona, but also a deep sense of gratitude. In this spirit of gratitude, Lee is donating 30 percent of his royalties from the sale of his book to three Sedona area charities: Camp Soaring Eagle, Yavapai Big Brother Big Sisters and the Sedona Community Center.

Ilchi Lee is an educator, mentor and trailblazer devoted to developing the awakened brain and teaching energy principles. He began teaching meditation and breathing exercises in 1980 in a park in his native South Korea. With the dream of helping people seeking fulfillment, Lee developed the mind-body-spirit methods of Dahn Yoga and Brain Education based on his unique experiences in meditation. Since he first visited Sedona 16 years ago, Lee has dedicated himself to sharing the message and spirit he has received from Sedona.

Locally, Wisdom Magazine interviewed Ilchi Lee about his NY Times Bestseller, The Call of Sedona-Journey of the Heart in their NYC/Tristate Edition, January/February 2012.   Ilchi Lee describes his journey that called him to Sedona in his interview with Edie Weinstein.  CGI Holistic Fitness & Spa would like to invite people in the community interested in the meditation techniques in the book to come to a Free Meditation Circle starting Sunday March 4th, at 4:00pm  at CGI Holistic Fitness & Spa, 111 Homans Avenue, Closter, NJ 07624.
