From the author of the bestselling “Simple Abundance” comes a provocative and powerful life “bible” for women around the world. In this insightful and eloquent book, Sarah Ban Breathnach explores the nine stages necessary to living authentically: Sensing, Surviving, Settling, Stumbling, Selling Out, Starting Over, Searching, Striving, and finally, Something More.From the author of Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy comes a guided excavation for women who suspect that there’s something more to life than the top layer pursuits of money, sex, and love. In service to these restless souls who want to scratch beneath the surface, Ban Breathnach offers tidbit-sized essays that help women unearth pay dirt–their reason for being. Using archaeology as her frame of reference, Ban Breathnach suggests imaginative exercises at the end of each chapter, which she refers to as “Field Work.” Although it occasionally feels overdone, the archaeology metaphor works well–helping readers unearth their past choices and circumstances to better understand the soul’s current mission. Early in the book, Ban Breathnach offers this enticing invitation to go on a spiritual dig: “Besides the fact that your soul is one of the last unlooted sources of the miraculous, with discoveries as spectacular as any found in the Delta of Venus or Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, you can embark on a soul trip and be back before anyone even notices you’re missing. They might be curious about that gleam in your eye and that flush on your cheek, but I’ll never tell if you won’t. Are you game? We’re heading to the sacred site of your soul.” –Gail Hudson

A rich, rich read This is one of a handful of books I’ve read that changed the way I look at myself — and another on that short list is Simple Abundance which I’m working through for the 3rd time as I write “morning pages” daily. This is NOT a sequel to SA — in lots of ways it doesn’t seem to be written by the same Sarah — but by a more mature, more worldly wise, more “evolved” one. Repeatedly in my reading of SM, Sarah brought me to tears–because she knows me–and made me see…

Compelling… Unlike many of the more recent reviewers here, I did not read “Simple Abundance” before I started the sequel. Also unlike many of the recent reviewers, I found “Something More” to be incredibly insightful, wonderfully written and a true gift FROM as well as TO the Soul.

More appropriately: Breaking Up 101 I am a nineteen-year-old college student. I have never been married, and currently have no prospects of doing so. I struggle through mid-terms. I live in a dormitory with a group of amazing friends, my second family. My life is hopelessly and joyously flawed.
