About Back To The Basics


Back to the Basics: 5 Values Revitalized is about a personal journey that led the author back to the basics. It presents a straightforward, user-friendly guide to help us get in touch with our five innate human values (love, peace, truth, right conduct, and nonviolence) to bring balance and joy back into our lives. In addition, it teaches the basic constructs of being a good global citizen. But more than that, it helps us remember that we are pure love. And it is this love that can heal, propagate, and move us to a space of heart-opening, blissful happiness.

In 2005, Dr. Milan began a seven-year quest covering four continents and countless cities in an effort to sort out her own issues and find inner solace. She also wanted to learn about the world and find the answers to hard life questions we all have and find ourselves consciously or unconsciously asking. Dr. Milan cuts to the chase using humor, anecdotes, thought-provoking quotes, and personal stories. And along the way, she offers useful and insightful guidance.


This is a book of the times, covering issues we all face on a daily basis, which are related to our egos, values, the impact of our choices, and the effect we have on our relationships and on the world.  She shows us how life is a mirror of our choices, discussing matters linked with personal baggage, trust and surrender, forgiveness, integrity, our hearts being closed, and more. Back to the Basics shows us a simple way to apply the five values and live a life that is stress-free, loving, and meaningful.
