The Book

A Year of Mystical Thinking

Make Life Feel Magical Again

‘What if you could find inner peace right where you are? No one-way ticket to paradise required…’

After a terrible year, feeling burned out and broken, Emma Howarth decided to go on a year-long mystical adventure – from the comfort of her own home.

The result was a year that changed everything. A year that turned frantic chaos into life in the slow lane. A year of magic and moonlight and pink sky sunrises. A year fragranced with incense and burning herbs (that sometimes smelled suspiciously illegal).

A Year of Mystical Thinking is Emma’s witty and life-affirming account of the year that transformed her world. Each month she introduces a new spiritual practice, with practical, actionable tips – from how to create the perfect vision board to living by the phases of the moon.

Join Emma on her journey as she connects with spirit guides in February, obsesses over astrology in August and learns about reiki in November.
