Publisher's Summary

To dive deep into your inner life. To explore what matters most: wisdom, happiness, the pain of loss, self-accountability, aging, and more. Searching for Soul: A Survivor's Guide is a breathtakingly honest case study: a self-examination resulting in the discovery of a meaningful life.

Bobbe Tyler blends her story with in-depth commentary, framing each chapter as a response to one of a set of questions, appended to the book, entitled "The Harvesting Wisdom Interview." In her search for fulfillment, Tyler asks and answers the most difficult questions about the trauma of mental illness, divorce, financial and emotional despair. The rewards of this hard-won wisdom belong not to her alone but by way of her unflinching examination of life's many paths, dead ends, and circuitous routes - to anyone who has faced a life-choice gone wrong - or known the indescribable recovery from addiction or abuse, or longed for the peace that seems just out of reach. This searing self-appraisal provides hope and fellowship for those who seek to know themselves better.

The book is published by Ohio University Press.

Critic Reviews

“Though our lives and hearts are often fraught, each page of Bobbe Tyler's book offers some new invitation to grow our appreciation and gratitude for the ungraspable, nitty–gritty miracle of being a human being. The insights she shares with us about relationships, regrets, losses, the joys of finding oneself - all the stuff that life is made of - ring true in the convincing language of an individual who has won her authenticity and learned that life, just as it is, is so much more than she-or we-can ever imagine.” (James Finley, clinical psychologist and author of Merton's Palace of Nowhere and The Contemplative Heart)
“An intricate, exquisite and deeply moving account looking backward and examining all the slings and arrows of her life. It is positive, healing, upbeat and uplifting-but with a deep, melancholic twist-for a life lived well, but sometimes not well enough.” ( PsychCentral)
