)-- Is it possible to find deeper happiness, even in the midst of life’s most painful and difficult challenges? This is the question author David Kuenzli began to explore after the death of his wife, Donna, from cancer. His work aims to help readers discover steps they can take to create an enduring sense of happiness, even when faced with suffering and adversity. Using a unique and original paradigm for understanding and creating deeper happiness, the author describes the five pools (levels) of happiness and the turbulent waters to avoid on their journey to deeper happiness. The pools include pleasure, success, meaning, purpose and joy.
Diving Deeper, published by Dog Ear Publishing, helps readers discover ways to savor life more deliciously, achieve a balanced sense of success, create a more meaningful life through developing “life passions” (something as simple as stamp-collecting or as complex as working to solve the problem of homelessness in one’s community) and finding one’s “heart passion” (life purpose) through which one seeks to make a difference in the world.
The author, a marriage and family therapist for more than 30 years, became interested in moving away from a traditional psychology that focused primarily on what makes people “a little less unhappy and dysfunctional” to an uplifting focus on what makes people more deeply content and joyful. Kuenzli offers a variety of insights learned from a new branch of psychology called “positive psychology,” whose purpose is “the study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive.”
The book also includes more than three-dozen heart-warming essays written by Kuenzli’s friends, who reflect on what life passions bring them joy. Through their inspiring essays, the author learned first hand “the truth that deep contentment and joy can slowly arise out of profound loss, like a phoenix rising from the ashes.”
