Called “the language of enlightenment,” Sanskrit is truly unique among all the languages of the world. This ancient language, upon which so many of our English words are based, gives us an entire system to show what to do in order to experience the full meaning of a word. In this profound way, Sanskrit offers a touchstone of timeless wisdom that each of us can access to transform our lives and build confidence, certainty, clarity, and success.
In Conscious Confidence, Sanskrit scholar Sarah Mane offers a practical confidence-boosting program, derived from the deepest meanings of Sanskrit concepts, to help you establish a safe and secure reference point from which to see the world and make clear decisions on how to act, what to say, and how to feel. She explores the Sanskrit roots of English words related to confidence and success, unlocking rich, three-dimensional understandings of each word as well as guidance on how to obtain confidence and find your path in life. For example, the word attitude, based on its Sanskrit roots, means “our point of view, our intent, and our conduct.” A positive attitude means we have a self-aware point of view, have an intent for the good, and conduct ourselves in ways that reflect both. This true attitude gives us a positive and powerful place from which to view the world. The author also incorporates traditional stories from East and West, such as the Mahabharata and the works of Plato, scholarly references, and accounts of people discovering hidden depths in their own lives through the ancient truth of Sanskrit.
Drawing upon the deeper meanings behind several Sanskrit words for confidence, Mane outlines principles for harnessing the fourfold energies of Conscious Confidence and offers practical exercises for discovering our inner certainty. She explains how the Conscious Confidence method allows us to tackle the growing anxiety and fear that hang like a shadow over many of us and look to the unchanging core of selfhood for certainty, rather than ever-changing externals.
With the Conscious Confidence program and the wisdom of Sanskrit, you can discover a strong and steady inner source of compassion, self-direction, self-empowerment, and the life force of self-confidence.

“Sometimes it takes a mountain-moving event to acknowledge that someone has a unique ability and timeless wisdom to spark an inner fire and energize us to remember the core genius truth of who we are. That someone is Sarah Mane. Sarah provides a proposition for us to move beyond the limitations of past conditioning and outdated beliefs and realize the truth that we are magnificent universal beings. This is the timeless wisdom of Sanskrit in its very fluency and perfection in the very essence of igniting genius possibilities. Conscious Confidence is a manifest for success in times of chaos and a knowing that--energized as universal transformation and belief awakening--rises up to remind us that it is our birthright to achieve our highest ideals and to imagine we can do extraordinary things because we are extraordinary.”

Conscious Confidence is not only a book to acquaint the reader with these philosophical insights but is, more importantly, full of practical ways to reap the benefits that can only come with applying them.

“Sanskrit is regarded as a sacred language, said to be the language used by the soul. But it is much more than that. Sanskrit has the power to open the many chambers of our heart and connect us with the inner sacred dimensions of our being. The complex structure and grammar of Sanskrit can refine the mind and bring clarity of thought and a deeper understanding of the flow of consciousness, the universe at large, and the reality of individual lives on this planet. In Conscious Confidence Sarah Mane offers a spiritual and conscious framework for achieving balance in your life and shows you how to weave colorful new threads into your destiny.”
— LIANE BUCK, editor of Om Times
“Conscious Confidence is more than a review of Sanskrit practices. Mane takes these lessons and weaves them into larger life goals and a confidence-boosting program designed to apply to all walks of people in different stages of their spiritual or life journeys. This creates an environment of positive thinking and reflection that forms the foundation of a treatise that is flexible enough to be applied to many situations on many different levels. Because life delivers many blows and challenges to such positive thinking, Conscious Confidence delivers an especially powerful message that encourages readers to constantly examine their perceptions and impulses to adopt a calmer countenance and make choices based not on reaction but on maintaining better balance.”

“This book is no quick snack. It's an epic feast for a hungry soul who wants access to some of the deepest wisdom that has come to us over thousands of years. Sarah Mane has been immersed in a journey of discovery through philosophy and the study of Sanskrit since she was just a pup. In what could be a formidable, dry, boring meal straight out of academia, she serves instead a rich, nourishing spread of knowledge and insights that satiates and satisfy mind, body and soul. I thoroughly admire her tremendous skills of communication, curiosity, and her deep comprehension of her materials. As a book designer, I quite literally read hundreds of books, so I am really pleased to celebrate one of the few books that has hooked my avid attention. I plan to have her book by my side forever, so I can linger with, dip into and savor each rich, surprising, succulent chapter.”
