Stephanie Dowrick is the author of five number-one internationally bestselling fiction and non-fiction books. She brings to her psychological writing a rare breadth of insight and experience, compassion, and the unusual gifts of a born storyteller. Her books are not only about “life” - they also come to life. Stephanie Dowrick combined her writing with a private psychotherapy practice for many years. She is currently also a leading columnist and a much sought-after lecturer and leader of spiritual retreats and workshops on psychological and spiritual issues. Born in New Zealand, she moved to London, England, where in 1977 and still in her twenties, she founded the prestigious independent publishing house, The Women's Press. She has lived mainly in Sydney, Australia, since 1983 and in 2005 graduated from the New Seminary, New York.From Publishers Weekly:
In the latest from inspirational author Dowrick (Forgiveness and Other Acts of Love), she explores the seven "essentials" that can provide contentment in a world that values material success over internal fulfillment. The problem, Dowrick writes, is that people have lost track of what is genuinely rewarding: "to be kind, to live enthusiastically and creatively, to appreciate and understand experiences different from our own, and to sustain a sense of inner stability and trust even in unwelcome and difficult situations." Each chapter includes a series of mental exercises, self-examinations and meditations to explore and illuminate, in manageable steps, seven broad life skills which can seem overwhelming: "Trust who you are"; "Let your values and goals work for you"; "Choose your attitudes and responses; "Build self-respect"; "Consider others"; "Honor the people you love"; and "Think and act positively." Collaborator Greer interjects a series of questions based in concrete problems-balancing family and work, coping with guilt, forgiving oneself and others-that keep the proceedings grounded. Part self-affirmation series, part cognitive psychology and part meditation on the power of generosity, this is a thoughtful and sincere guide for those seeking to find happiness within.
