Reflections on Transcendence is a mindfulness-based book of meditations and reflections, that fosters introspection, consciousness, and awakening from the grip of anxiety, worry, and unhealthy thinking.

"Lykins offers readers new to the idea of 'inside-out' thinking a clear introduction, and those with some experience in cultivating a mind-centered perspective a good collection of jumping-off spots for reflection. Takeaway: Awash in calming insight, these reflections on lasting happiness will appeal to readers looking to dip into universal wisdom.  Great for fans of: Sydney Banks’s The Enlightened Gardener; Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now."    ~ Editor's pick, Booklife Editorial Review

Liza was at the crossroads of her life, having just arrived in San Francisco. It was there that she found Genevieve, the love of her life. The years that followed were happy ones, full of adventure and constant companionship, until they decided to start a family. Liza and Genevieve set out on a complicated journey to have a child; one that would ultimately consume them. Liza chronicles the longing, pain, hope, loss, and self-doubt that infertility would unroof for both of them; each in their own unique way.

Liza's reflective narrative as conveyed to her daughter Caroline, is for anyone who has experienced profound loss that seems impossible to overcome. The themes contained in this work are universal: love, longing, futility, hope, forgiveness and finally, inner peace.

"There are moments in one's life that must be remembered; stories that ache to be heard, clawing their way out of deepest darkness and pain to reach some sort of light. This is one of those stories; the story of the love of my life, whose name you also bear; a story of love, hope, loss, and redemption."
