It thrust his growth and development forward in ways he never thought possible, forcing him to confront his fears and work through his biggest blocks.

This is the culmination of that process: ten key teachings – including practical exercises – distilled from his thirty years of intense group therapy work. It shows us that meaning can exist even in the worst tragedy. By creating a set of practices and making them central to our lives we can find passion, purpose, and meaningful happiness while navigating life’s darkest moments in such a way that we discover the gold hidden within. There is revelation, insight, struggle, devastation and winning through against all odds in these stories of ordinary people with extraordinary challenges facing them.
