The Man Who Wanted to Be Happy (Laurent Gounelle)
Hay House UK: At the end of a holiday in Bali, Julian, an unhappy schoolteacher, decides to visit a renowned local healer, Samtyang, in search of guidance. During daily sessions at the wise man's house, Julian begins to identify the source of his unhappiness through a series of simple questions and answers that point to his own limiting beliefs and fears. Day after day, their dialogue is punctuated by real-life situations and challenges that Julian is asked to experience on the island's mainland and its surroundings.
As his journey unfolds, Julian begins to understand how he can make his dreams become a reality and find his very own way to true happiness. From international bestselling author Laurent Gounelle, The Man Who Wanted to be Happy explores the world of new possibilities that opens up to us when we discover how to break free of what prevents us from living a life full of joy.
