We live in a time of great noise, disruption and dysfunction, where it can be hard to be heard or know how to make a difference. But what if there were one principle underlying all change, turning dreams into reality, making your efforts add up, and supporting you in living your most significant life? And what if you owned a magnificent instrument that could master it? Well, that principle is resonance, and your own mind-body is exactly the resonator you can tune, tame and integrate to master it. This book shows you how. It answers 3 questions:
-How it is that resonance does everything
-How you can become a more resonant being
-How you can use resonance to make a difference

From particle physics to brainwave coherence, you’ll learn how all things happen through resonance, including the sudden shifts that mark peak experiences, a team in flow, or radical social change. You’ll learn Zen practices that help you cultivate the energy running through you and resonate more fully with the energies around you. And you’ll learn how you can apply your more resonant self to realize your goals and dreams in love and relationships, leadership and work, and even large-scale social change. From close-in relationships to mega projects, how you resonate is how you make your difference. Resonate shows the Way to making your greatest difference.

Advance praise

“Whitelaw Roshi is a scientist at heart. She likes her Zen to be palpable and practical. So when she talks resonance, she doesn’t open her mouth unless she is already resonating with all that surrounds her. You either feel it, and the lesson sinks in. Or you don’t feel it, and go back to the zazen cushion until you do.” –Gordon Greene Roshi, Spring Green Dojo

“In her latest groundbreaking book, Dr. Ginny Whitelaw explains the science of energy in terms we can all understand, and then shows us how to use resonance to improve the energy of our marriages, our workplaces, and even - if you’re fearless - the world. Dear Change Agents, this is your book.”
–Rebecca Ryan, CEO, Futurist and Economist, author of ReGENERATION

(feedback on excerpt from Resonate)
“Thank you for letting this come through you! It so resonates (if you will) with my experience and I am already sharing it far and wide. Your ability to turn kinesthetic knowing into words that can reach people blows me away.” –Kim Freichs, Red Frog Coaching

Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
