Who among us has not experienced times of vague uneasiness, prolonged stress, depression, or even despair? What if you have just suffered a severe loss or many losses? Where do you turn when everything you've worked so hard to build up suddenly and completely falls apart?
A Place Called Happiness, while understanding that circumstances and events of our lives can be anywhere from mildly difficult to brutalizing, nevertheless affirms a permanent pathway to a state of overriding contentment.
In this concise, readable book, Dr. Dori Seider allows us to encounter, gently yet powerfully, the internal barriers that keep us from our own happiness. She helps us to define a new approach that will invite our contentment in, ask it to stay longer, and make it feel so at home that it will return to us more often.
The book is divided into four parts: Losing Your Happiness, Changing Your Mind, Finding Your Truth, and Loving Your Life. Dr. Seider insists that even in a very troubled world it is possible for each of us to create an enduring sense of well-being, and she shows us how.
