Enso Morning: Daily Meditation Gifts

Enso Morning: Daily Meditation Gifts

Over 160 blessings inspired by nature to awaken, stimulate and deepen meditation and spiritual practice.


Enso Morning: Daily Meditation Gifts presents over 160 Morning Blessing Letters to awaken, stimulate and deepen meditation and spiritual practice. In the tradition of Robert Frost and Wendell Berry, Jacob uses poetic images and personal experiences of New England nature, the birds, animals, woods, and beaches of coastal Maine, to awaken readers to begin their day nurtured and encouraged to be themselves, joined with like-minded souls. The personal letters in Enso Morning: Daily Meditation Gifts provide a friendly, comforting and accessible way to wake up and affirm the whole self. Each letter has seven brief paragraphs that offer a welcome to the day, a silent meditation, affirmations of body, heart and soul, a blessing and a gift for each day.


This collection of morning blessing letters was written over a six-month period as part of a thesis at Matthew Fox’s University of Creation Spirituality. Each contains seven sections: welcome, silent meditation, affirmation of physical self, then of the emotional and spiritual self, blessing for the day and gift of the day. They are very simple and direct and, although indexed at the front, the gift is not revealed until the end. Readers are reminded each day is a real gift and that the quality of our lives largely depends on the attention we give to everyday matters and sensations. Sometimes he uses imagery, as in imagining you are standing under a waterfall that washes out your feelings and the corresponding blessing is that whatever is not necessary can fall away, keeping us clean, fresh and pure. The best way of using this book is as intended, namely as a morning ritual, either opened at random or by selecting a particular appropriate theme. It is an inspiring exercise. ~ David Lorimer, Paradigm Explorer

Start My Day With Enlightenment : This is a physically small, chunky little book that feels something like a "soulful-nest of insight"; comfortable and full. There are short affirmations, inspirational remarks and observations that illuminate the elements of conscious living with Enso wisdom. I have enjoyed opening it daily and somewhat randomly; reading thoughts for the start of each day. I am not kidding when I say that each time I feel a surge of energy with each passage. The author knows how to touch the heart & soul deeply, meaningfully and with great care. ~ Fran Bagdasarian, email

This is a gem of spiritual wisdom. Here are a wealth of meditations, affirmations, blessings, and gifts, soulfully crafted and offered from the heart by a wise guide.Each one helps us find our center at the beginning of the day, as well as identify and flow with the 'seasons of the soul' throughout the year. Let your soul be your guide to find the right 'letter' for you on the right day; randomly or chronologically both work to select the 'gift' of the day meant just for you. This is a rich treasure trove of inner and outer, metaphorical and real, natural images and spiritual directives to awaken and inspire your entire day, and to create an ongoing practice that could even transform your life! ~ Robert Atkinson, email

Jacob crafts his words artfully to help you get quickly to what matters most on your spiritual journey. If that's what you like, get with Enso Morning: Daily Meditation Gifts and remember to dip into it every morning with a cup of your favorite beverage. ~ Russill Paul, email

This simple and profound book, written from the depths of the soul, will touch your soul and awaken it to joy and courage and peace. ~ Andrew Harvey, author of The Direct Path: Creating a Journey to the Divine Using the World's Mystical Traditions

Whenever I sit to read one of Jacob's daily meditations, and I do so several days each week, a sense of calm flows through me. I become quiet, my thoughts settle down, and I remember who I am and what is important. I am grateful for this gift. ~ Nancy Reuben, MD

I find that reading morning blessing letters allows me to transition into each day feeling centered in myself and grounded in the moment. Each letter directs me to practices I can return to during the day. I enjoy selecting a letter at random and seeing what in it speaks to me that day. ~ Frederick Gates PhD, clinical psychologist

Reading morning blessing letters each morning gets me started on the day in a more conscious and centered state of mind, putting me in touch with the blessings of life and the essential tools I have to draw on. ~ Rev. Joel Grossman, Interfaith Minister

This beautiful book of morning blessing letters is a source of comfort and inspiration for me. ~ Miriam Greenspan, author of Healing Through the Dark Emotions
