On February 24, 2009, Jillian Quinn’s book The Secrets of the Bulletproof Spirit: How to Bounce Back from Life's Hardest Hits hit bookstore shelves all over America and in Australia and New Zealand, too!  In this elegantly simple book, Quinn and her co-author, Azim Khamisa, offer readers a practical prescription for overcoming adversity of any kind and coming out on top of whatever hits come their way.  Offering spiritual solutions to the most human and material crises and losses, she walks us step-by-step through our most painful ordeals and leads us to the happiness waiting on the other side. 

In this uncertain world and in these volatile times, no one is immune to the trials, setbacks and heartbreaks of life.  Unquestionably, bad things do happen to good people.  Though it’s impossible to completely avoid blows to our relationships, our careers, our finances, and our health, we can learn a new way of thinking and being in the world that allows us to respond with more ease and grace. 

The Secrets of the Bulletproof Spirit is a beacon of information and inspiration when the going gets tough.  It reveals a comprehensive plan for facing and surmounting the troubles and sorrows we all face.  In this comforting book, the authors expertly and compassionately guide us as we learn to tap into the power of our own bulletproof spirits.  First, unveiling the thinking and behavior patterns that keep us stuck in grief, anger and pain, Quinn then shows us how to use the hardest hits we take to create the life of our dreams.
