Meryl Best Lowell has been exploring and practicing different forms of meditation since 2005, when she was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of breast cancer. Lowell believes that Yoga Nidra makes meditation and deep relaxation accessible to everyone. She received her certification as an advanced level facilitator of Yoga Nidra at the Amrit Yoga Institute in Salt Springs, Florida in October of 2016. In the spring of 2018, Lowell was hiking in Arizona when she was inspired to write a series of children’s books, which incorporate the mindfulness techniques of Yoga Nidra. Her first book in the series, The Dolphin’s Secret: A Meditational Journey for Children, focuses on giving children a direct experience of meditation. Lowell currently resides in South Lake Tahoe, California, with her Toy Australian Shepherd, Blaze. She credits the practices of Yoga and Yoga Nidra with giving her the inner resources to venture into rock climbing, skydiving and parasailing.
The Dolphin's Secret: A Meditational Journey for Children is available in paperback on Amazon and other retailers.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
