"Do You Believe Everything You Think? Finding the Path to Joy"
by Lisa Layman Tiernan
with contributions by Michael E. Maine

Do You Believe Everything You Think? Finding the Path to Joy is a journey of self-awareness that we hope will help you experience more peace and happiness in your life.

This meditation book consists of mindfulness concepts and practices, fictional stories to help illustrate the concepts and exercises that can be done to reinforce the practices. The book is divided into chapters that focus on specific topics and can be read sequentially or individually. The best way to master any topic is through experience. We encourage you to make this book an experiential process. We don't want you to believe something just because we say it. While we encourage you to read it with an open mind, we would also like you to try the practices to see what works for you and develop a perspective based on your own experiences. You've probably heard the expression "Experience is the best teacher." We are sharing our experiences as a guideline; your experience is an invaluable part of the process.

We would like to express our thanks to you for embarking on this journey because we believe that it is the best thing that you can do to for yourself and for everyone.

May you be well and happy,

Lisa and Mike

What people are saying about the book...

"Lisa offers both humor and wisdom in her book with many practices that you can use throughout your life.”DK

"... I am enjoying flipping through to random pages and reading the messages that speak to my heart loud and clear. Do You Believe Everything You Think? reminds me that happiness is dependent not on things going my way but on my choice to be happy, no matter what challenges I face. The conversational tone, inspirational quotes, and practical exercises are reminding me to focus on my blessings rather than disappointments. The practice is simple, yet quite powerful life changing actually.”SB

"Filled with inspirational stories and practices for everyday thoughts or situations, this book shifted my perspective to one which allows me to control my own happiness, regardless of what life throws at me.”AT
