I found a new and meaningful direction in my life. I highly recommend it to everyone looking to increase emotional flexibility and contentment.”  —Dr. Debra Kalan, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist

“This book has a wonderful blend of sharing, teaching, unveiling the universal, and being grounded in the personal. The examples and stories help clarify and deepen an intuitive sense of where the author is pointing people.”  —Dr. Dicken Bettinger, Ed. D, Psychological Educator and Co-Author of Coming Home: Uncovering the Foundations of Psychological Well-Being

“The Well-Being in You will draw you in and keep you reading. I’ll be recommending it to my graduating clients.”  —M. Borelli, LCSW, Meriden, Connecticut, 9th– 12th grades

“Joanna Hill has given us all a great gift with this book. Inside she writes, ‘You are always only one thought away from well-being.’ She shows us how this statement is true and what happens when this wisdom is brought to life in the stories of dozens of moments in which people have put the 3 Principles into action as they live in new ways. If you want efficiency and a direct path to well-being, I highly encourage you to get a copy and open it up.”  —Maura Wolf, Leadership Coach, Author of What Matters Most: Everyday Leadership at Home, at Work, and in the World

“This is a beautiful work of art! It puts the reader at ease and makes well-being simple. I recommend this amazing book to anyone!”  —Betsy Shandalov, OT, Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor

“At a moment with an overabundance of well-being products and programs on the market, Hill’s book enlightens us with a refreshingly new perspective. Well-written, calm, and uniquely empowering – Hill is onto something great. A book that anyone would gain from reading.”  —Saroya Friedman-Gonzalez, President & CEO, Greater New York Councils, BSA

“This work has the power to change not only the lives of individuals but also the entire landscape of psychotherapy and health care.”  —Colleen Kahn, AMFT, ATR-BC, Stanford Children’s Hospital

“In her new book, Joanna Hill quotes author Mallory Smith as saying, “it’s like giving people a pair of glasses, giving them a way of seeing something they didn’t realize they were missing.” That is precisely what this book offers. It is a road map to the wonder of who you already are, allowing you to settle in and let yourself see your true nature. And that true nature is not only enough, but is here to bring the world to a better place. I recommend you take this journey, and feel your heart open to the inspiration of being alive…This book is a treasure!”  —Julie Gleeson, Best-selling Co-Author of Inside Job: 8 Secrets to Loving Your Work and Thriving

The Well-Being in You has brought more lightness and joy to my work and personal life. The results are transformative.” —Kellie Simon, Deputy Public Defender, Alameda County, California

“The Well-Being in You helped me alter my day-to-day perspective, and begin a transition to an overall healthier state of being. Hill’s book reminded me that our perceptions of our experiences are inseparable from the experiences themselves, and therefore peace and well-being are readily accessible, as they stem from within. Employing clear language and apt metaphors, Hill explains the Three Principles paradigm in a clear, accessible way – but do not be deceived, though the concepts may seem simple, their impacts are profound.”  —Mira T. Lee, author of Everything Here is Beautiful
