Living Yes will help anyone who is willing to discover what it means to be human.

Many people experience life without understanding what being human means. The result is that they live on the defensive. They avoid discomfort at all costs, find themselves numbed by their challenges, and have no fun whatsoever. These folks are frozen by habit, awash in sadness, stuck in judgment and blame, trapped by anxiety and fear, swamped by anger, and undone by lies in their head, believing themselves to be worthless, weak, or stupid. They find themselves alone and unable to connect.

Some people are more fortunate. They feel the presence of love, have identified some insight, and recognize their own progress; however they are still stuck. They are confused because life remains a mystery.


If Living Yes were a medication, it would be both a pain reliever and a vitamin. By using this book, you will be able to lift yourself from emotional pain at any time while growing mentally stronger.

The easy-to-read text, charts, graphics, progress questions, cartoons, and exercises will help you learn how anxiety, anger, and sadness may be relieved by reducing expectations and learning acceptance. Instead of struggling with relationships, you will learn how to set boundaries and choose assertiveness.

You will understand how you never need to feel lonely or overwhelmed by fear or despair. You will learn how to examine your thinking and challenge your deepest “core lies.” You will discover how to tap-in to your compassion, vulnerability, and strength.

In Living Yes, the challenge is: How do you identify the “no” moments which separate you, so that you may choose “yes” moments which reconnect you to others, yourself, and the very universe in which you live?

When you are ready for action, you will no longer be a victim of your fateful circumstances and will use the tools to create a plan based on your true destiny.

Once Living Yes is mastered, you will no longer need to struggle to prove, avoid, or judge. You will be able to slow down. Becoming quiet and intentional, you will breathe and move peacefully, be comfortable with your power, while enhancing your pleasure, love, and joy. You will move past your pain to a place where you will choose to be fulfilled. You will know how to Live Yes.
