Audiobook Sample


Could you be going through a midlife crisis?

Are you in your 40s-50s or early 60s? Have you been brought up short by changes in your life? Has an important relationship ended, have you gotten laid off from your job, or have you – or someone close to you – gotten sick? Is this a midlife crisis?

Or have the signs of aging, a decline in ambition and a nagging feeling that you are just going through the motions making you wonder what life is all about?

When we confront life obstacles like these in our 20s, 30s, or early 40s, we do whatever we need to do to get back in the race and back up to our prior speed of life.

But in our late 40s and after, when we hit these same obstacles – against the backdrop that time is running out – we are beginning a shift in our state of consciousness from our time-since-birth to our time-left-to-live.

How can Hidden Blessings help our Midlife Crisis?

Hidden Blessings: Midlife Crisis as a Spiritual Awakening reveals a new map for discovering and embracing our authentic selves, an indestructible foundation from which a new life agenda – for growth, purpose, and meaning – will take shape. At this stage of life our soul asks – or demands – that we live larger lives by repeatedly showing us that…

…at midlife our story is only half told.

What others are saying about this book…

Jett Psaris’ heartful, soulful writing offers diamonds of insight: what many view as a period of breakdown or crisis is really a metamorphosis.

Gay Hendricks, PhD, co-author of Conscious Loving and Conscious Loving Ever After

Jett Psaris encourages us to fully embrace the confusion, the uncertainty, and even the despair that is necessary to shake our ego structure to
its core. When we “experience the thing we fear the most if we are to evolve,” as she writes, we come out with a new foundation, fresh and authentic, inclusive and uid.

Paul Ja, co-owner and founder of Copperfield’s Books

Without formulaic prescriptions, Jett Psaris invites us to do the hard work of meeting the ordeals of midlife, allowing a deeper source of knowing to come forward. This is a generous book, suffused with wisdom and an unmistakable kindness.

Francis Weller, author of The Wild Edge of Sorrow
