"We're all born with a beautiful mind, but without the owner's
manual for operating it! Scott Kiloby's latest book, Natural
Rest for Addiction, is the owner's manual we're all yearning to
possess. Through simple, direct, and flawless instruction, Kiloby
shows us how to navigate difficult emotions, obsessive thoughts,
and addictive behaviors. And he exquisitely reveals how to
experience our natural state of wholeness--which is already
present, but so often misunderstood--in which true and lasting
healing is present. I deeply appreciate Kiloby's wise counsel that
shows how lasting healing and true health can unfold, no matter our
circumstances, through simply learning to rest in our natural

"Scott Kiloby's book Natural Rest for Addiction is one of the best books for treating all types of addiction. He gives us an honest and clear understanding of the root of the urges and craving that we all know. Scott gives us not only hope for a cure from the symptoms of anxiety, trauma, and depression, but a step-by-step guide to freedom from them. This book teaches us a form of non-dual mindfulness which allows us to discover our deeper nature of well-being that is already okay with everything as it is. Highly recommended!"
--Loch Kelly, author of Shift Into Freedom
"Kiloby has found that mindfulness training can help anyone struggling with addiction to kick their habit by teaching them how to stay in the present moment. He explains that by naturally resting in a state of presence, one stops looking to the future for ultimate satisfaction. The author offers strategies and exercises that can help combat cravings, encourage positive feelings, and listen fully to what others are saying. Kiloby delves into dissolving physical body contractions, or blockages of energy/repressed emotions, so that true transformation may be achieved and there's no possibility of falling back into the addictive cycle. Kiloby's practical and innovative skills will undoubtedly benefit anyone caught in a cycle of addiction, anxiety, or depression. Recommended."
