Dr. Stephanie Dowrick is the author of a number of much-loved, life-changing books. They include Intimacy and Solitude, Forgiveness and Other Acts of Love, Choosing Happiness, Creative Journal Writing, Everyday Kindness, and her spiritual study of visionary poet Rainer Maria Rilke, In the Company of Rilke. A trained psychotherapist and a spiritual leader and teacher, her award-winning writing is not only highly praised, it is also unusually accessible and supportive, uniting contemporary psychological wisdom with an effortlessly inclusive spiritual vision.
"In an era of inauthenticity Dowrick is a godsend. Her gift is the
ability to write in a manner that genuinely enriches and changes
lives. Choosing Happiness is a glorious book - both in intent
and in scope. In many ways it is the only book you need ever buy on
happiness. Not only is it a wise and enjoyable read it is also an
invaluable reference book to return to again and again."
--Nigel Marsh, author of Fat, Forty and Fired

explore the many hills and valleys of the happiness trail."

--Publishers Weekly "Stephanie Dowrick makes the hard questions simple. She makes the impossible real and possible. Her wisdom is contagious. If anyone can cause a happiness revolution, she can."
