Praise for The Three Keys to Contentment:
"Marcia has distilled the essence of Eastern and Western wisdom that will generate much thought about the meaning and goal of one's life. Both the Buddhist concept of acceptance and transcendence and Jesus' teaching about forgiveness do not imply forgetfulness, but rather learning from the past and yielding any claims it might have on your future...Inner peace comes from knowing that one is loved by our Creator, that life has a purpose, and that contentment is derived from satisfaction and fulfillment. Before one can look at the world, one must first look within in order to discover this. The Three Keys to Contentment will be a helpful guide to this awareness." —The Rev. Dr. Harry L. Serio, pastor, theologian, author of The Dwelling Place of Wonder
"The gently delivered material, which is filled with love and compassion...is offered as a simple, accessible guide for modern life...I love the book and can think of a dozen people I'd like to hand it to, today."—Sarajane Williams, MA, licensed psychologist, CCM, VAHT, editor, The Harp Therapy Journal
"Marcia portrays a unique and creative approach for looking at one's life; the past, the present and the future. In allowing yourself to open your heart and to embark upon her journey, you may find the answers to the many questions for which you are searching."—Samantha Wesner, MSN, CRNP, RNC, nurse practitioner and wellness enthusiast
"Marcia is a skillful intuitive who has compassionately and clearly laid out a genuinely helpful book for those who become interested in awakening to inner guidance in the midst of life."—Wali Ali Meyer, Universal Sufi master and co-author of Physicians of the Heart
