Radical Happiness describes the nature of the egoic state of consciousness, how the ego interferes with happiness, how to detach from the ego, how to be in the moment, how to be with emotions in a way that heals and releases them, what awakening and enlightenment are, and how to live in this world following awakening. Exercises are included to help you apply the information and transform your experience of life—and become happier!
From Radical Happiness:
"Just as we become engrossed in movie images and forget our surroundings, the ego becomes entranced by the movement of the mind, its thoughts, its feelings, and its desires. This becomes its world, its reality. It doesn’t notice the space, the nothingness, the emptiness between the thoughts. Following our thoughts and feelings keeps us very busy and leads to a lot of suffering. It creates the drama we call ‘my life.’ However, life doesn’t have to go in the direction of our thoughts and feelings. That is not the life intended by the Self. It intends a different story, a simpler and potentially happier and more fulfilling one. However, the Self allows us to create these dramas and learn from them until we tire of them and begin to question the cause of our suffering.”

“Gina holds up a perfect, clear mirror so that you can see your True Self. The book contains many potent pointers for directly seeing that the false self IS false, which naturally reveals the Unchanging Eternal: The Timeless Reality of your true Being. Very highly recommended.” –Charlie Hayes, spiritual teacher
“What a fantastic read. I loved this book. I read it in two sittings and was literally transformed in the process. This book will give you a direct experience and not just a head full of information to haul around. I can't recommend this book highly enough.” –J. B. Everett
"As a big reader of spiritual books, I have concluded that Gina is one of the most clear and direct teachers you will find.

“It's quite challenging to put into words how this book has struck me. A part of me wants to rant on and on about how incredibly powerful this book was to me. I really feel this book is like a personal can opener. It sliced me open and helped shed crystal, perfect, light on things in a way that bathed my soul in acceptance.” –Amazon Customer
