    I have always enjoyed Shirley Maclaine's writing. I have read most of her books.Since I have been meditating for a while, thought I'd read this for her thoughts.

    I read this book ages ago . .. when it first came out. It flows differently to MacLaine's previous memoirs as it is more segmented into themed sections and less the stream of consciousness and ponderings that she is most known for. This reflects her taking the role of 'teacher' at the time to an extent - a role she soon became uncomfortable with as like most of us, she is here discovering and probing what life is about, rather than remaining stat...

    It was late high school very early college when I explored this book and I picked it up because I like Shirley Maclaine as a performer. It was my first entry into a spiritual word outside of conventional religions. I appreciated her honestly and strength when discussing such a subject before it got "popular" to talk about Chakras and alternative healing.

    Oh Shirley, I'm so done with you. Your first book was so sweet and heartfelt and personal and interesting. Then you moved into full throttle narcissism and you never looked back. I do appreciate your intention and desire to heal and connect but this book is so scattered and so odd.

    I really enjoy Shirley's writing personality.... her honesty, wit and knowledge. She's not afraid to express her personal beliefs and experiences. But her thoughts on "going within" for the answers we seek is very encouraging and I feel the urge to explore some of the insights she writes about.
  • Emily Hill
    I am so impressed with Shirley MacLaine's book, Going Within. As a new devotee of the String Theory and Quantum Mechanics it is startling how early on Ms. MacLaine embraced the science that is bridging into the metaphysical world. After the debacle of the Spiritualism movement of the late 1800s, its not surprising that the two sectors avoided each other in the same manner as parties to a one-night stand!'Going Within' has been like reading a frie...

    I FINALLY finished this book that I started back in August. Not because it's a terrible book but there was so much information and science that I had to read it slowly and let my brain try and process everything. If your interested in meditation then this would be a good place to start. Focusing on the 7 energy center in the body - the chakras - this book tells where each is located and what each one represents. There is also a video on You Tube ...

    I thought this book was good. It was informative at the same time soothing to the mental. The eyes do not see what the mind cannot perceive. This book helps to make sense to the mental, of the things we see and experience in life. It gives the mind a ground to recognize what we have been seeing our whole lives then registers it to our eyes. A book that's worth having. I lost my first 1993 copy - reading it inside the bank on the 14th, June 2013 a...

    Shirley MacLaine is one of my all-time favorite actresses. She has a down-to-earth style of writing which is entertaining, as well as poignant.In this book, she talks gives instructions on ways in which to meditate. She also talks about the 7 chakras of the body, psychic healers she has personally spent time with, and about her meeting with Stephen Hawking.One thing for sure, Shirley enjoys her life and loves sharing her experiences.
