Imagine for a moment that you had no pressures in your life—no problems to fix, no deadlines to meet, no struggles to overcome. Do you feel that sense of spacious relief? It’s not an illusion, teaches Mary O’Malley. It really is possible to live with that profound openness all the time, even while tending to your everyday tasks and obligations. In What’s in the Way Is the Way, Mary offers practical guidance for meeting all of your experience with an abiding sense of ease, trust, and peace of mind.
This accessible book is divided into ten phases, featuring inspiring wisdom and step-by-step exercises to heal the core beliefs that keep you stuck. With each chapter, Mary invites you to come into the present and see yourself and your circumstances in a different way—unclouded by preconceptions, struggle, or fear. Join her on this illuminating journey to discover:
• How fear controls our lives—untangling the conditioning that keeps us from trusting our complete experience
• The healing power of curiosity—a natural way to meet our lives without needing to change or judge anything
• Trusting what happens even when we feel threatened, ashamed, or afraid
• Why we become more active, engaged, and effective when we stop “doing” life and start being fully present for our lives
• Remembering exercises—simple, powerful practices for reconnecting with our natural state of curiosity, trust and love
“No object, person, or experience will ever bring you the deep and lasting peace that comes from simply being open to life,” writes Mary. With What’s in the Way Is the Way, this renowned teacher brings you a powerful guide for turning your obstacles into your greatest allies and teachers—and showing up for your life with all your vulnerability, passion, and magnificent perfection.

Has changed my life! Review by Gerhard
Tremendously valuable! Has given me wonderful insight into understanding myself, and why I have acted the way I have for so many years. Truly liberating. Discovered this at the right time, when the student is ready, the teacher appears. (Posted on April 24, 2016)
amazing Review by Jackie
This is truly life changing. I'm not completely done with the book yet, but so far, every sentence resonates with me. I think I've underlined about 80% of the book. Like Ahri, I bought this book after listening to Tami Simon's interview with Mary O'Malley. Thank you Mary, for writing such an amazing book, and thank you Sounds True for providing great interviews for free. (Posted on April 15, 2016)
Life-changing read Review by Ahri Golden
This might be the most helpful book I have ever read..I mean ever. I heard Mary O'Malley speak on the Sounds True podcast with Tami Simon. It stopped me in my tracks. I immediately bought the book and have devoured the pages like food for my soul. Since reading this treasure, I have experienced remarkable changes in my life. O'Malley is a masterful architect of human condition and has honed her craft to serve humanity in a most distinct way. This book has altered my perception of living. Thank you for writing this book, Mary! A true contribution to humanity.
Thank you, Mary!

Highly recommended reading Review by Nancy2711
This is a remarkable book. It has many powerful messages which are instrumental on my journey of personal evolution. I am now open to trusting Life, which is a big turnaround. Giving compassionate attention to my emotions has really shifted negative energy. I am deeply grateful for this book. (Posted on April 7, 2016)
A Powerful Book to be Read Over and Over Review by Elizabeth
I could not have discovered this book at a better time. As someone who is challenged by debilitating chronic depression, worry, and pain, as well as addictions, I truly had lost faith in life. This book was like a life preserver thrown to me in the dark months of winter. It asserts that a greater intelligence is at play and that our struggles are here for us, not to work against us. It reminds us that our minds are powerful tools that we can use to assist ourselves, not cripple ourselves. It posits that there is great power and relief in just asking the universe questions about what frightens us, rather than constantly racking our brains for answers. It reminds us that deep breathing is possibly the best and easiest way to return to a state of calm and peace. And that's just a sampling of the many powerful messages and insights it offers. This book is one to be picked up over and over again, both early and often. I feel like I have a friend in Ms. O'Malley, even though I've never met her. Her life experiences rang true for me; and her messages presented in this book, in her previous books, on her website, and on her audio/video recordings are a true gift to this planet.
