A thought-provoking, informative and at times hilarious memoir of the author's quest for everlasting happiness through various spiritual traditions
Have you ever wondered if there might be something more to life?
When Siobhan Curham decided to write a book about happiness there was only one small problem, which became a massive problem as soon as she sat down to write - she wasn't truly happy.
Not wanting to be a fraud, Siobhan set out to discover the secret to true and lasting happiness. Her quest took her on an unexpected path deep into the heart of the world's spiritual traditions.
SOMETHING MORE is a funny and moving account of Siobhan's journey, as she found religion - and promptly lost it again - then went on to develop her own spiritual 'pick and mix' of practises from Buddhist chanting, Irish yoga, Jewish philosophy and Reiki healing, to connecting with her inner goddess and finding her shamanic spirit animal (who, it turns out, was a large, black, talking horse).
Full of brutally honest anecdotes and age-old wisdom, SOMETHING MORE is for anyone who has ever thought about exploring their spiritual side, and those who might feel disillusioned by organised religion but still crave that elusive 'something more'. After all, who wouldn't want to find inner peace and everlasting happiness?
Curham bravely acts upon the instincts that many of us have to dig deeper, but few of us carve out the time to explore. A wise, honest and amusing account of her adventures in soul-searching and religion-hopping. Something More is a spiritual memoir for anyone who has wondered if there is more to life than work and relationships - a more mysterious force that can't be fully grasped by even the oldest of conventional religions. - Man Fast: How one woman's dating detox turned into a spiritual reckoning across four continents
