"I’ve always said David Bryan is one of the most grounded people I know. In fact, I’ve come to call him "Mr. Zen". Over the years, David has shared his ideas about consciousness and meditation with me as he’s helped guide me towards integrating meditation and awareness into an enriching daily practice. I’m excited for those of you about to discover David’s gentleness and beautiful insights on consciousness. The 7 Principles of The Affluent Soul will take you on a heart-opening journey to the edges of yourself, and ultimately to that sacred place where you begin.”

"I have known David Bryan for many years, since we first met on a meditation retreat. I am very excited that David has written The 7 Principles of the Affluent Soul. This book feels so potent with wisdom and caring attention. David has put a lot into this, and it shows. Congratulations David!"
"I'm not a big reader, but the first few paragraphs drew me right in. I found myself having a few ‘never thought of that’ and ‘aha’ moments. Considering the depth of the topic, I found David's examples and style very helpful in understanding his points … which made for an enticing read. David develops his points very, very nicely. Those physical world examples make it easier to understand his points about consciousness. It feels enlightening, and really leaves me wanting more, which coming from me speaks volumes. I can’t wait to read the whole book!"
"I found the first chapter of The 7 Principles of the Affluent Soul to be just awesome. I LOVE the start. It's a great way to launch into the reasons for the book and set the scene for what will follow. The personal touch makes it very relatable. The topics David addresses are very timely, as more and more people are starting to wake up to the fact that there is more to life than work and material acquisitions. David's writing is very thought provoking. I enjoyed getting a taste of his upcoming book, and I’m looking forward to reading more!"

"I have known David Bryan for over 30 years now. I value the fact that both of us are interested in meditation and related philosophy, especially since I have often relied upon Dave to help clarify for me some of the more difficult philosophical points I encounter. I find Dave to be an amazing communicator, and I am delighted he has chosen to write a book on topics that are very attractive to me! His book flows well and is well thought out. I enthusiastically recommend it!"
"David’s assistance helped me to maximize the benefits from an important opportunity, an opportunity that called on me to identify my priorities clearly and express them with clarity. I had been struggling to find that clarity, but David quickly helped me to find it. I relied on David’s input, which worked to help me make the most of this important opportunity."
