Dr. Kathy Graham

“7 Keys To Serenity is a beautiful moving journey into the core of what it means to be a healthy, peaceful, and loving human being.  Serge Mazerand has cleverly woven the notion of holistic self-care, with the idea that this life we live, is an ongoing musical composition.  For the parts that we have control over, we are the composers and the conductors of our health and of our life.  As a naturopathic physician who has practised whole-person-centred- medicine for many decades now, I highly recommend reading this book for those interested in moving toward a life filled with vibrant health, loving relationships, synchronicity, and hopeful possibilities…”

Author Michael J. Roads

“7 Keys to Serenity by Serge Mazerand is a beautiful and skillful blend of practical advice for your spiritual path following the theme of music and flow. I am no musician, but I am very familiar with the flow of life. Harmony is balance, and balance is our place of greatest potential. This very worthwhile book is about creating harmony within. Personally, I was enchanted with the style and brief, but very interesting story of the author, told in a series of Interludes. I thoroughly recommend this charming and thoughtful book.”

Dr. Marlowe Haskins

“Serge Mazerand has intricately explored and explained the deeper and essential components of living a whole life. The parallels he draws to music are thought provoking. I would recommend this book to those wanting to understand and live a fuller and more meaningful life.”

Maestro Leslie Dala

“In his book, 7 Keys to Serenity, author Serge Mazerand offers the reader a guide to finding contentment and inner peace using his love of music as a metaphor. Mazerand is himself a gifted pianist and composer and makes striking parallels between the act of living one’s life and the act of creating a beautiful piece of music–– from the structural considerations of pause and breath to the act of balancing through harmony and discipline through conducting one’s self. Sprinkled throughout with personal anecdotes of a wide ranging variety, Mazerand takes us on a spiritual quest which is both challenging and daunting but ultimately rewarding and challenges us to find our inner strength and self with using the power and beauty of music as a guide. This is a rare and unique book which will speak to anyone with an open mind.”

Awareness & Self-Care

In a world of massive disruption and distraction, of obsessive connection to the internet and to our devices, ironically, we have come to lose the most important connection: the relationship with our essential self. In subtle and less subtle ways, this disconnect...

Authentic Happiness ( cont’d )

TRUE HAPPINESS = SELF-LOVE = SELF-CARE It may sound selfish to be talking of self-love. Yet it isn’t at all. Here is why: only when we love ourselves do we take care of ourselves and only then can we take care of others. Let’s use a metaphor that illustrates this...

What is authentic happiness?

To ask such a question implies that there is false happiness. And I would indeed argue that there is: an episodic, circumstantial happiness, based on external factors such as other people and things. Ask a hundred people around you how they would define happiness and...

Writing 7 Keys to Serenity:  How it all began…

Why, to begin with, would an improvisational pianist and composer of healing music want to write words instead of notes? Shouldn’t the music be left to do its magic? I asked myself these questions many times and had to conclude that,at some point, we need to go...

Healing the world—Healing Earth
