A Crisis Is A Terrible Thing to Waste


2023 NYC BBA Distinguished Favorite

Kelly Sullivan Walden, a bestselling author, hypnotherapist, and dream expert, shares her four-step OGLE process in a humorous self-help memoir. She teaches us how to change our perspective on tragedy and look for the magic that can be found in even the darkest moments. Recovering from heartbreak and misfortune can be difficult. In her book A Crisis Is a Terrible Thing to Waste, Walden (aka the Dream Doctor) shares her own history of healing through therapy, shamans, gurus, 12-step programs, and her 25 years of experience working with clients as a dream therapist. She encourages us to use these challenges as an opportunity to grow stronger, forgive ourselves and others, and transform ourselves. Walden shares her own personal stories of misfortune, including a hot-air balloon crash and a near-death experience, as well as stories from her clients and friends. She uses humor and wisdom to teach us how to use her OGLE method to turn tragedy into magic. This four-step process can help us shorten the recovery process and turn suffering into optimism. With Walden's help, you can find your way back to your inner peace, even in the midst of chaos. Guided by Walden's wisdom and wit, you can transform your own life's unexpected tragedies and mishaps into magical journeys of self-discovery, love, and personal growth.
