We all have our habits to "help" when life gets hard. Yet there's only one force that can offer us true healing from life's pain. Join award-winning writer Seth Haines in The Book of Waking Up for a guided experience into the divine love of God that transforms a life.

The inevitable pain of life gives us many reasons to check out - and many ways to do it. Alcohol, entertainment, pills, shopping, porn, chasing success, cashing checks, and collecting social media "likes" - these and so many other things anesthetize us from the wounds of everyday living. As Seth Haines wrote in his award-winning book, Coming Clean, "We're all drunk on something."

In his compelling follow-up, The Book of Waking Up, Seth invites you into the story of healing. He invites you to see your coping mechanisms for what they are - lesser lovers, which cannot bring the peace, freedom, and wholeness you crave. Through guided reflections, sustainable soul practices, and stories from Seth's life and others, The Book of Waking Up invites you to wake to your coping mechanisms, find the why behind your pain, and walk into the divine love of God.

As Seth writes, "Addiction is misplaced adoration." Now, join him on a journey toward the only love worth adoring, the only love that cures a soul. Join him on the journey to waking up.

Treat yourself

I didn’t know what to expect. It was beyond what I expected. It woke me up. And I keep wakening, which was the whole point.
