About the Book

Life is a spectacular, wild, surprising, gut-wrenching, and fun-filled ride—so why is our society riddled with mental illness, addictions, despair, unhappiness, stress, rage, and hate? The vast and wide-reaching benefits of a bold outlook on life are not fully understood, and it’s time to change that.

In Awakening to More, Drs. Adele von Rüst McCormick and Marlena Deborah McCormick reveal how to become wiser about yourself and life. Going beyond self-help, the McCormicks reject a paint-by numbers approach to living. Instead, they offer life lessons from real encounters with people and animals. They explore the animal and spirit side of human nature, because learning about the many faces of our lower and higher minds can keep us grounded. They illuminate vital wisdom for everyday living, relying on their knowledge of the classics in psychology, spirituality, and philosophy and on their experiences traveling into the heart of nature, especially human nature. The lessons presented here can help encourage your original and spontaneous edge and increase your sense of optimism, even during challenging times.

This book offers narratives and wisdom designed to help you fully awaken to and appreciate the vast possibilities that are just within your reach in life.

º Seeing our problems as a problem is a problem. Why not awaken to more?

º Instead of trying to control or fix life, prepare to handle and enjoy what comes your way.
