The Map to Wholeness is an evidence-based guide for discovering your life's true purpose, deepening your experience of transformation, and emerging healthier and happier from the journey
What is my purpose? Am I on the right track? How do I create meaning in my life? The seemingly random events that comprise our lives can be understood as serving a higher purpose when examined through the proper lens; they are in fact the critical steps that comprise our hero's journey. Those who choose to travel this path will emerge completely transformed—healthier, happier, and in touch with their life's purpose. In this book, Susan Ross draws on her extensive research to create a map for those ready to embark on their most important adventure. The Map to Wholeness identifies the thirteen phases of personal transformation (symbolized as an upright infinity symbol or a figure-8). Readers will learn how to identify their unique location on the journey, deepen their experience, and avoid the common pitfalls that block progress. Each step on the path brings us closer to our inherent state of wholeness (even when they feel painful or pointless). By understanding the larger meaning of our circumstances from a bird's eye perspective, we learn to rest in faith and confidence, freed from crippling judgment and self-blame. We will live more deliberately, consciously, and joyfully, while simultaneously heightening our experiences of change.

At the heart of this book are the personal journeys of three ordinary individuals who have descended into the darkness of their psyches, integrating a personal life-changing event, and emerging transformed. Readers will find their own life stories reflected in these real-life accounts.
