Dr Wayne Dyer was affectionately known as 'the father of motivation' by his fans. This is the first new book from this beloved spiritual teacher since he passed into spirit, and draws on his audio lectures from the 90s and 00s. This is a chance for his long-time fans to rediscover some of his inspirational talks and for his younger followers to read his classic teachings. One of Dr Wayne Dyer's favourite quotes was: 'When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change'. In this collection of his most classic teachings, published for the first time in writing, readers will find a novel solution for any problem they may encounter at this time. As Wayne liked to say: 'There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way'.

These 60 chapters, withtitles like Solitude Means Freedom , All Seeking is from Emptiness and Fear ,and Life is an Extraordinarily Beautiful Movement , carry the essence ofKrishnamurti's teaching style and profoundest wisdom. Each one reflects an encounterK had at different times during the sixties and seventies. It opens with apoetic account of the location where the encounter took place, plusoccasionally a description of the seeker that K has met. The chapter then movesback and forth between the seeker and the teacher, giving the reader plenty toreflect upon.This is previously unpublished material. Readers will be captivated by the luminous prose and the piercing insight. The style is enigmaticand poetical but each chapter contains more than enough for the reader toconsider, perhaps as a daily practice. In the styleof Paulo Coelho they have the quality of fables, but the teaching is far more profound and challenging.
