Full Heart Living


With its unique combination of storytelling interviews, memoir, and activities, Full Heart Living: Conversations with the Happiest People I Know is as fun and engaging as it is relatable and practical. Pulling himself out of darker times, the author’s vulnerability touches the soul, and the lessons learned make complex ideas simple and doable.

Beyond happiness, this book reveals how to live, with your arms outstretched and your heart wide open. Each delicious chapter concludes with a summary of key points and optional activities that bring the concepts immediately to life.

As intimate as sitting down to coffee with your best friend and as instructional as attending your favorite instructor’s class, this book is a profound reflection on how to live fully with joy and meaning.
