If we don't--each and every one of us--choose peace and happiness for our own lives, who will? Peace--and how to get it--is crucial just now, and likely to remain so. Yet, in spite of these turbulent, anxious times, anyone can choose to experience lasting peace and happiness every day. Susyn Reeve began Choose Peace & Happiness as a result of a workshop she developed and taught for Mount Sinai-NYU Health, a large medical center in New York City, in the aftermath of September 11. Then she formed a virtual Peace & Happiness group of people who read the material and shared their experiences and responses via email. Based on Mahatma Gandhi's eternal philosophy, "Be the change you wish to see in the world," Choose Peace & Happiness offers readers weekly practices, ideas, and suggestions for how they can become happier and more peaceful as individuals and in groups. It helps readers change their thinking and actions to bring about inner peace, as well as find happiness within and without, for themselves and the communities they live in. Choose Peace & Happiness is a year-long journey with 52 topics--among them, "Be Grateful," "Use the Creative Power of Your Word," "Live Abundantly"--to help readers experience what peace and happiness is for them. Each topic forms a chapter with seven days of readings, techniques, and activities. On Day 7, readers write their reflections on the week in their personal journals. Reeve gently helps readers let go of old habits and new fears to break through resistance into an ever-deepening experience of peace and happiness. Using journaling, prayers, breath work, affirmations, and life-affirming actions, readers of Choose Peace & Happiness find abundant opportunities to be happier and at peace, every day throughout the year, either alone or in "Choose Peace & Happiness" groups.
