Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
The bestselling author of The Art of Possibility returns with a new vision for achieving true human fulfillment
In this powerful and inspiring book, family systems therapist and executive coach Rosamund Stone Zander invites readers to shed the childhood stories that hold us back, and enter a realm of true maturity and fulfillment, where limitless growth becomes possible.
As children, we develop stories about how the world works, most of which get improved upon and amended over time. But some do not, even as we mature in other ways. Opinionated, self-centered and fear-driven, these “child stories” are the source of the behavioral and emotional patterns that hold us back. When we learn to identify and rewrite these stories, we can do remarkable, even magical things.
Zander shows us that life is a story we tell ourselves, and that we have the power to change that story. She illuminates how breaking old patterns and telling a new story can transform not just our own lives, but also our relationships with others—whether in a marriage, a classroom, or a business. Finally, she demonstrates how, with this new understanding of ourselves and our place within an interconnected world, we can take powerful action in the collective interest, and gain a sense of deep connection to the universe.
This galvanizing book expands our notions of how much we can grow and change, whether we can affect others or the world at large, and how much freedom and joy we can experience. Stimulating and profound, it is the perfect companion to her beloved first book, The Art of Possibility.
"Fresh, compelling, and uplifting. A well-written and accessible model for self-examination for even the most well-adjusted adult."
“Filled with fascinating stories illuminating the many challenges to our inner and global well-being, Rosamund Stone Zander has created a narrative to liberate our lives in ways we may have never imagined possible. Pathways to Possibility is a treasure trove of human journeys that reveals the deep nature of who we are and how we can create a more meaningful life and healthier world.”
—Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., author of Brainstorm and The Whole Brain Child
"Rosamund Zander is a miracle. Her generous voice will resonate with you, change you and help you create work that matters."
—Seth Godin, author of The Icarus Deception
“You must read Pathways to Possibility for it is an extraordinary, a unique, book. Zander helps us to see the connection between our inner selves and the nature of the natural world and the universe. By the end we have a new understanding of who we are and our individual human responsibilities.”
—Jane Goodall, award-winning primatologist and author
“Rosamund Zander is the best companion to walk you through your next passage. Her words radiate possibility as she leads readers out of the darkness of an old story, showing us how to change it, open up, and move into the lightness of love and gratitude.”
—Gail Sheehy, author of Passages and Daring: My Passages
“In this eloquent and elegant book, Rosamund Stone Zander offers us a visionary and practical guide to living fuller, more compassionate lives for ourselves and others.”
—Sir Ken Robinson, author of The Element and Creative Schools
“Pathways to Possibility is a great stepping stone from Rosamund Zander’s previous book, The Art of Possibility. I saw myself in this book: my relationship to my childhood, to the past, and to Nature, and the struggle and delight of helping a new self emerge. She’s teaching us all how to be architects of the spirit.”
—Richard Preston, author of The Hot Zone
