Product Description

Product Description

Do you ever wonder…

Why we continue to have the same problems, deal with the same issues, and experience the same hurts over and over again? What do we do when the pain seems ridiculous or embarrassing but it still casts a shadow over our lives? We may even know why we hurt, where it all originated, but we can’t seem to make the hurting stop. What do we do when we don’t want to go for counseling - we want to clear it ourselves - but we just don’t know how?

I’d been asking these questions for years. The answers came to me while I was travelling in Europe with my daughter. With the answers I found, I was able to take control of my life and understand why, up to then, I never really had control. Using the profound and simple system I discovered, I was able to heal my emotional hurts – one by one.

This is the story of what I discovered.

Very insightful. I learned a great deal about the mind and how to rewire it in time. Will definitely come back to this book whenever I get stuck in life, and will definitely practice some of the techniques mentioned at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly moving and helpful, I felt a shift 8 Jan 2013

Dear Lori, I have just finished reading The Happy Place (in less than 24 hours) and have to say at this moment I am a wreck! but seeing this in a good, excited way. Your book brought up lots of feelings, emotions and memories. I must be so ready for the healing. It is probably the easiest to read and follow book I have read in this genre.

Your book, and the book I read right before it, Lisa Cherry's Soul Journey, which was also exceptionally moving, both recommended The Road Less Traveled, so I must need to read that now. I got it right after reading Lisa's book and there it was again in yours so must be a sign "I am aware of the positive signs in my world".

No other book has made me feel so inspired to actually pick up a pen and do the exercises as yours has. Thank you. You are a Blessed Angel! :D

4.0 out of 5 stars The Happy Place 9 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Here is a brave, honest and intense quest leading to self insight of how childhood experiences and perceptions can hinder our adult life, world view and relationships and how we feel about our life and self worth.
The process revealed has important implications for human development, parents, and the struggle to overcome self limiting and harmful addictions and feelings.
Those adults able to make contact with their 'inner child' can find a way to heal childhood wounds and childlike perceptions. To transform them to a more mature adult inclusive understanding of life, it's responsibilities, demands, and potential.
This can be an emotionally painful process that many would prefer to avoid understandably, but can lead to greater freedom from the painful effects of self limiting perceptions, feelings, attitudes and expectations that tend to persist inwardly like a splinter or thorn in the flesh that is noticeable under the surface activity of living and needs treating or will endlessly fester and cause emotional pain and undermine self worth. You deserve to create a happy place within to be at ease with life and express your innate potential that you were born to reveal to your self and others to create a happy and fulfilled life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome in every sense of the word! 11 Sep 2011
By Betsy Cross - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm getting to know Lori Gosselin over at her blog Lifeforinstance. I knew that she was a real quality thinker, someone who was willing to pay the price to find a gem in her quest for truth, but I'm just learning how deeply she travels! She's relentless! I read her book, "The Happy Place" in just a couple of hours. Every bit of it touched my heart because of the vulnerability with which she writes. As I neared the end I was taken aback by the overwhelming emotions I felt when doing the "Visit Meditation". It was so powerful. When I feel calm, warming chills, I know I've hit on something good! Follow Lori down the Path to Peace. You'll be pleasantly rewarded. Amazing.

As a healer, I really enjoyed Lori Gosselin's new book which condensed and distilled useful elements from multiple experiential, philosophical and psychological angles into an individualized healing tool.
And it was fun to read too!

4.0 out of 5 stars The desert is beautiful because it hides a well, somewhere . . . 29 Dec 2011
By ZM - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed dipping into this over the holidays. Everyone possesses unrealised potential--that's a fact--and the writer's optimism in being able to tap into this was contagious. The author's reminder, by Antoine de Saint-Exupery in 'The Little Prince', that it's the hidden well that makes a desert beautiful represents a simplest reason why this book is a treasure. The narrative of her personal path to peace is engaging and I am sure a good starting point for others wanting to reach that destination too. Haven't had much exposure to this type of literature and I'm happy to have encountered it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of THE HAPPY PLACE 28 Sep 2011
By Nick Kent - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
By Lori Gosselin

After reading this book, what strikes me about Lori is that she refuses to live an ordinary life, fraught with disappointment and frustration. Furthermore, Lori learned that the only thing between her and buoyant happiness is her own unconscious resistance, and she learned how to overcome this resistance. Lori does a wonderful job of sharing her personal life experiences to teach you what she learned.

Lori offers a powerful underlying message in her book. The message is this: no matter how important things may seem in your life, take the time to explore yourself.
Lori does not say this specifically, but she makes it clear in a thousand different ways.

What I love about the book is that Lori not only explains how she stripped away layers of self-harming patterns, she offers concrete methods that enable anyone to do it.

It is clear, that Lori values doing what her heart points to, not what others tell her to do. Moreover, she has learned how to be gentle with herself when it is time to make changes. Lori demonstrates this powerful lesson in several ways throughout the book.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to liberate themselves from their mechanical lifestyle so they may experience their unrealized potential. It is clear that one of Lori's chief aims was to get her `old self' out of the way so she could allow something incredibly new to shine through. I like how this unfolds in the book.

There is no adventure in life as wonderful as discovering a new world for yourself. Lori loves discovering more and more of this new world. Once on the path, Lori has never relaxed her guard against self-delusion. She offers wonderful advice on how to seek clear self-understanding that will strengthen you.

Do you really want to turn your life in a new direction? I suggest reading Lori's book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Renew Your Mind with The Happy Place 12 Sep 2011
By John Owens - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Lori has put together a real page turner of a book. With great humility Lori has woven together a very insightful personal story of transformation. What is really great about this little book is that she has brought the reader along for the ride and in the process has put together a doable set of steps that anyone can do and follow to their own happy place. I loved here insights and believe that she has put her finger on a real key to personal transformation.
