Harvard-trained psychiatrist, Dr. Shelley Uram shares her theory on how we find out what we really want in life. Our innermost desires have been lost along the way and Dr. Uram helps to breakdown the barrier in our minds to identify the genuine desires versus what most people think they want most, such as money, success, more free time, getting married. etc.

In order to achieve complete satisfaction in our lives we must be happy with what we're doing and continually move toward our happiness. Essential Living focuses on finding what that happiness is. Dr. Uram writes, "The Essential Self (our most real state of being) was around way, way before any thoughts or emotions were present.” However, society's pressures and what our culture has made us believe is the correct way of living, has hindered our natural ability to recognize what is right for our individual needs.

Dr. Uram guides readers in finding a sense of peace, happiness, love, and a sense of freedom.  Some of the benefits to reaching our essential self are:

• An increased sense of well-being
• An inner stillness
• A greater sense of inner peace
• A greater sense of connectedness with others and with life itself
• More loving of self and others

Most of us have taken an indirect path to what we want most; Dr. Uram explains how that happens and shows readers how to get on a direct path to their ultimate goal.  Exercises are incorporated throughout Essential Living to help readers learn, retain and progress more quickly.
