About the author:
Mark Morris, LCSW, has done his best to live and evolve his personal understanding of Living Yes as a psychotherapist. He is certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. He has led CBT groups, a Living Yes group, and meditation groups. He was a professor for fourteen years, and for the eleven years before that, he was a filmmaker. He has offered substance abuse counseling in a residential 12-step program, provided psychotherapy to anxious and depressed war veterans and Katrina survivors at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and currently helps many individuals and couples in his private practice in New Orleans.
Mark completed the More to Life weekend in 1995 and studied for eight years with Dr. K. Bradford Brown, who introduced him to the concept of Living Yes. Mark has conducted a Living Yes group since 2009. From those diverse and courageous participants, he has watched how these concepts have been absorbed and applied. Mark attempts to couple his varied professional experiences with his own personal experiences to offer his vision of how to say “Yes” to life. He hopes you will join him in this ongoing process.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM READING THIS BOOK?
Living Yes will help anyone who is willing to discover what it means to be human.
Many people experience life on the defensive. They avoid discomfort at all costs, find themselves numbed by their challenges, and have no fun whatsoever. These folks are frozen by habit, awash in sadness, stuck in judgment and blame, trapped by anxiety and fear, swamped by anger, and undone by lies in their head, believing themselves to be worthless, weak, or stupid. They find themselves alone and unable to connect.
Some people are more fortunate. They feel the presence of love, have identified some insight, and recognize their own progress; however they are still stuck. They are confused because life remains a mystery.
WHAT'S THE BOOK ABOUT?
If Living Yes were a medication, it would be both a pain reliever and a vitamin. By using this book, you will be able to lift yourself from emotional pain at any time while growing mentally stronger.
The easy-to-read text, charts, graphics, progress questions, cartoons, and exercises will help you learn how anxiety, anger, and sadness may be relieved by reducing expectations and learning acceptance. Instead of struggling with relationships, you will learn how to set boundaries and choose assertiveness.
You will understand how you never need to feel lonely or overwhelmed by fear or despair. You will learn how to examine your thinking and challenge your deepest “core lies.” You will discover how to tap-in to your compassion, vulnerability, and strength.

Once Living Yes is mastered, you will no longer need to struggle to prove, avoid, or judge. You will be able to slow down. Becoming quiet and intentional, you will breathe and move peacefully, be comfortable with your power, while enhancing your pleasure, love, and joy. You will move past your pain to a place where you will choose to be fulfilled. You will know how to Live Yes.
