9780062515926: Contentment: the Roots of Our Discontent and Our Way to True Happiness

A powerfully liberating approach to the pursuit of happiness that clearly and simply guides us inward and shows us how to realize true contentment now.

In these chaotic times, lasting happiness can seem elusive. Acclaimed Jungian psychologist Robert A. Johnson and co-author and psychotherapist Jerry M. Ruhl offer a welcome respite from the media hype and rampant consumerism that do so little to advance happiness and so much to obscure it. Instead of relegating contentment to another time, a different place, a better circumstance (‘as soon as I finish this project/land that perfect job/find a new relationship’), the authors encourage us to successfully negotiate and embrace ‘what is’.

Instructive and wise, this gentle guide contains all the tools we need – including illustrative stories, myths, and poems, along with practical exercises – to seize true contentment in the here and now.
