Editorial Reviews

From the Author

That which every one of us is looking for in this world is exactly the same thing. Every Being, even the animal, is looking for it. And what is it that we are all looking for? Happiness with no sorrow! A continuous state of happiness with no taint whatsoever of sorrow. Now, if this be the Goal, why is it the Goal? The reason why it is the Goal is because imperturbable happiness is our very basic nature!, And what is imperturbable happiness? Complete and total freedom, and that is freedom to do or not to do anything and everything. This is the real natural state, before, we encumber it with limitations.

About the Author

Hale Dwoskin Hale Dwoskin is the CEO and Director of Training of Sedona Training Associates, an organization headquartered in Arizona that he co-founded in 1996 to teach courses based on the Sedona Method and other mental and emotional releasing techniques originated by his mentor Lester Levenson. For the last quarter century, he has been regularly teaching the Sedona Method to individuals and at corporations throughout the United States and the United Kingdom, and leading instructor training and advanced retreats since the early 1990’s. Lester Levenson Lester Levenson was a man who mastered life's greatest challenge. In 1952 at age 42, Lester, a physicist and successful entrepreneur, was at the pinnacle of worldly success, yet he was an unhappy and very unhealthy man. So unhealthy that after having a second coronary, his doctors sent him home to his ritzy Central Park South Penthouse apartment in New York City, to die. Lester was a man who loved challenges, so instead of giving up, he decided to go back to the lab within himself and find some answers. Because of Lester's determination and concentration, he was able to cut through his conscious mind to find all the answers. What he found was the ultimate tool for personal growth - a way of letting go of all inner limitations. Lester was so excited by his discovery that he used it intensively on himself for a period of three months. At the end of that period, his body became totally healthy again and he entered a state of profound peace that he never left through the day he died on January 18, 1994. After Lester's awakening, he dedicated the remaining 42 years of his life helping others discover what he had discovered including inspiring the creation of the world renowned Sedona Method Course.

What makes Happiness is Free so useful are the specific exercises given that anyone can use and the very direct, simple, yet powerful statements from Lester.

This book easily and comfortably shows the reader how to go to the depths of one's beingness, the place from which springs eternal peace.

Format: Paperback
HAPPINESS IS FREE is one of those amazing books that you either take at face value as something that will change your life forever -- or discount as "too good to be true." It's a credit to the author, Hale Dwoskin, that this book succeeds in convincing me that when one lives in accordance with the principles outlined in this small volume, one can reap phenomenal rewards.
HAPPINESS IS FREE is a seven week course based on the Sedona method teachings of Lester Levenson. Readers are advised to carefully follow the suggestions of the book to read slowly, practice using the new ideas, and document daily experiences in a journal in order to allow the seemingly simple lessons to take root in the unconscious. This book reminds you that you are already a joyous spiritual being who is totally loved and loving -- and that your key to happiness is to remember and fully access this truth!
The main principle described in HAPPINESS IS FREE is that true happiness comes from freeing oneself from the grips of one's ego. The bulk of the book is devoted to helping you do just that -- break free of the death-grip that your ego has on your life at this very moment. A diary of progress is included in this book, along with numerous aphorisms designed as affirmations of living a spiritual life and letting go of ego-fixations.
What I like best about HAPPINESS IS FREE is the way it describes what it feels like to live a spiritual life. I was very glad to read the experiences that Lester Levenson shares in the beginning of this book, such as the way people offered him everything he needed with great delight no matter where he went! Those who have difficulty believing that such things could happen will likely not enjoy this book as much as those who already know that such things are not only possible, but can become much more prevalent in one's life. I highly recommend this book to all spiritual seekers who are committed to changing their beliefs and radically improving their lives.

The answer to the above question should tell you whether this book is for you or not.
If you're here, reading this, because you were drawn by a feeling of lack in your life and a deep desire to bring meaning, order, and happiness into it, then I strongly urge you to seriously consider getting this book. I don't guarantee that this book will give you all the answers you want. No book will or can do that because the answers are in you, not in any outside source.
This is a powerfully written book that can stimulate your mind so that it's receptive to your inward awareness, that is if you will let it.
However, there are many who say they are seeking happiness, but aren't willing to open themselves up for it. Others are on a path which is already enriching them. And of course there are those who block their minds against any possibility of spiritual awakening. If you fall in any of those three categories, you're less likely to gain much value. However, those on a path, even one which is fulfilling them, may well find good supplemental material here. I, for instance, was especially impressed by a discussion in the second session. Many of us have experienced a barrage of challenges shortly after we fitst start growing spiritually. I've read several explanations of why this occurs, but the discussion in this book gave me a better understanding than I previously had.
And so I give it four stars, realizing that there are many who just plain will not be receptive to the ideas here. But for those who are receptive, this is indeed a five star book.
If you do decide to read this book, be fair and give it a full chance to benefit you. The chapters are so arranged so that you can read and study one each week for a total of seven weeks.

Format: Paperback
If you are ready to take full responsibility for your life and bring it to a much higher level of existence, this is the book for you. It is wonderfully written in sessions to read weekly, with practical exercises that would allow you to actually experience the wisdom of its content. Sometimes the lesson seems to have been written just for me, at the right time. Reading the book with the family gives us tremendous strenght and valuable insights to deal with our life situations of the moment. The practice of every session brings personal growth and transformation of consciousness. I have experienced a significant improvement in que quality of my life in general, and at home and at work in particular. This book it's not only about happiness but, by teaching us how to get rid of our own limitations and self sabotaging beliefs and behaviors, we can find profound peace and real freedom. It complements beautifully the work of "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle.

"Happiness is Free" is a combination of teachings, aphorisms, dialogue and pure wisdom, gleaned from the life lessons of Lester Levenson. To fully appreciate the book, it would be a good idea to read "No Attachments, No Aversions" by Lester Levenson, to understand more about him and how he came to these simple, but profound, revelations about life. Hale Dwoskin, a student of Lester's, compiled the book and added his own valuable insights gained from working with Lester and his material for over 20 years. Some of the main points...

We are unlimited beings. (I had always believed in scarcity and the need to compete)

Our happiness comes from the awareness of our "beingness" - something no one can ever take away.

Our "problems" are really just illusions we create by holding on vs. letting go.

On the surface, some of the material might seem simplistic, but the more I read it and absorb it, the more profound it becomes. It must have really impacted Lester, since he was supposed to have died at 42, and instead, with these revelations, lived happily to age 84, in great health.

Some people just "get it". I think Lester was one of them. I enjoy reading his works and feeling his positive energy. It just seems soothing and reassuring, especially from someone who lived it and touched so many lives.

So I recommend the book and his other autobiographical one, "No Attachments, No Aversions". Hope that helps.
