About The Book
The book takes you on a two-part journey of self-discovery.
PART 1: provides an understanding of depression and a spiritual framework to enable us to climb out of the bog of depression and return to our original state of contentment. It includes a four-step process, which can be summarised as follows:
- Understand the Mind/Body Connection
- Think Positively
- Be Soul Conscious
- Connect With The Light
Each step offers food for thought and there are reflective experiments to consolidate the learning and provide an opportunity to tune in to our own inner wisdom.
PART 2: consists of a series of reflections designed to reinforce the theory with practical experiences that will, hopefully, help us to break through the darkness into the Light of love, peace and hope.

Caroline Myss, spiritual teacher and international best-selling author of ‘The Anatomy of the Spirit’ and ‘Entering The Castle’
John McConnel tackles his subject with compassion and wonderful clarity, with useful reflective experiments to engage the reader and memorable quotes. Definitely a book to keep by you for those times when you want a helping hand.
Judy Apps, coach, TEDx Speaker and author of ‘Voice and Speaking Skills For Dummies’
A stunning, must read, written with the pure light of wisdom, experience and a gentle smile.
Georgeanne Lamont, mindfulness teacher and joint author of ‘Values and Visions: Engaging Students, Refreshing Teachers’
I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
Jayne Lea, Editor, ‘More To Life’ magazine
Very well written with excellent ways of giving lots of very helpful and encouraging information to those suffering from depression.
Sally Topham, energy worker and author of ‘Finding The River’
There is not a word wasted in this book. No filler or unnecessary verbiage. Clarity of expression is due to clarity of thought, and it is clear that John McConnel has spent many years pondering these things and lives what he is writing about. I only wish he’d written many of the other books I have bought, because they would have been half the size and twice as useful.
Jack Raymond, therapist
May you find inspiration and healing in these beautiful pages. May you allow your experience of depression to be changed so that you see everything – including your beautiful heart – in a new light.
