Book Description

"What do you do when you realise that, even though you have everything you’ve always wanted, you’re still unhappy? How do you stop your eternal search for happiness? How do you find lifelong bliss, love, and joy, and move your life beyond happiness too?

In Beyond Happiness, author and master healer Marnie McDermott reveals the answers to these questions and more. In this deeply personal account, she shares lessons, wisdom, and insight that touches the heart and inspires the spirit with the twelve principles of enduring bliss.

For ten years, she searched in vain for happiness, only to find that the more successful she was, the more money she earned, the more things she had (and the more she strived to have), the more miserable she grew. She was a successful corporate communication specialist who had the world at her feet.

But when she lost everything—except her life—in a devastating house fire, her priorities shifted. Now, in Beyond Happiness, she demonstrates that what we all really crave is lasting happiness of the soul. Driven to rediscover happiness and find enduring bliss, she studied alternative health and mind-body principles, immersing herself in esoteric wisdom. By following what she calls “the gentle knowing in her heart,” she left the corporate world behind for the mysterious world of healers, mystics, and angels.

Within Beyond Happiness, the keys to lifelong bliss, love, happiness, and joy for all who wish to move their lives beyond happiness await."

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful words from a beautiful soul... June 19, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Reading beyond happiness is like talking with your best friend. I read my copy while on holiday and returned to my everyday life with a sense of calm that I had forgotten was possible! Marnie writes in a way that makes things click, things seem so obvious but have been hidden away, muddled by all of the millions of other things that we put before ourselves. Its totally a reference book for me! Refer back to it all the time, and im back on track :) Cant wait to read the next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Life changing June 17, 2013
This book is truly life changing, it changes the way you think and see things in your life. Marnie makes everything simple so you can re-focus your strength and energy in areas of need.

Since reading Marnie's book my life has certainly become more positive riding myself of negativity and instead surrounding myself with positivity.

It's so easy to make these changes, even the smallest ones make the biggest difference, driving is now much less stressful after applying Marnie's simple rules, I'm working on bed making....not quite ready to let that one go yet!!!

I will return to this book in future for reference and guidance.

Thank you Marnie for bringing the gift of your writing into my life when I needed it, you really do have a special way with words. Much Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful, Soulful & Life Changing! June 15, 2013
Beyond Happiness and Marnie McDermott came into my life at just the right moment.

Struggling with an overwhelming feeling that life really shouldnt be like this, I was searching for anwswers but nothing was clicking... until I read Beyond Happiness. Marnies' book helped in so many ways to change my life, to search out and create blissful moments and most impotantly to begin to learn to listen to what is really in my heart.

So beautifully and simply written, this guidebook for a soulful life is perfect for anyone who is wondering the same thing as I was; "There must be more to life". I cant recommend it enough!
