There is Another Way to Happiness

In the depths of life’s darkest storms, can we truly find lasting happiness?

Despite a stellar career marked by groundbreaking achievements, Dr. Ski Chilton, a distinguished scientist, grappled with persistent negative emotions, unpredictable reactions, broken relationships and deep depression. His quest for understanding propelled him into the science and philosophy of free will, questioning if humans (or he) truly possessed it. In his 2016 book, The Rewired Brain, he explored scientific literature that illustrated the existence of two rival minds, emphasizing the dominant influence of the unconscious mind — a factor he identified as the root cause of much of his own suffering and the overarching distress felt by humanity. Yet, this realization was not the full answer he sought.

Then a Sunday morning violent encounter with an untamed Arabian horse nearly cost him his life. From his new vantage point in a wheelchair, the internationally acclaimed biochemist shifted his focus from the purely scientific to the deeply spiritual, immersing himself in mindfulness and meditation practices. This journey not only facilitated his physical recovery but also ushered in a profound spiritual enlightenment he never saw coming.

In his new book, There is Another Way to Happiness: The Four Step CAST Process that Will Transform Your Life, Chilton presents a rare blend of science, mindfulness and spirituality to walk readers through the four, overlapping steps that helped him overcome his own cycle of fear, anxiety and self-doubt, and led to his total transformation.
In his book, Chilton traces his personal odyssey, from fame and money obsessed egoist to fully awakened Observer of the expanses of conscious living — a journey that ultimately culminated in the creation of his CAST Process, a daily life framework encompassing four vital stages: Consciousness, Awareness, Surrender and Trust.

As readers embark on their own journeys and engage in the book’s 13-week meditation/ reflection practices, they can:

  • Rewire destructive thought patterns
  • Deepen their self-awareness, peeling back the layers of their being to discover innate happiness within
  • Let go of ego, fear and the illusion of control
  • Embrace life’s unknowable’s, including the ultimate mystery of death
  • Profoundly connect and co-create with the creative intelligence of the universe

Prepare to awaken to an entirely new existence. There is Another Way to Happiness beckons you to step into a beautiful, transcendent path of living.”


Praise for There is Another Way to Happiness

As a physician, integrative oncologist, and New Age enthusiast, I have read hundreds of books in this genre. Yet, none have delivered a more pragmatic and accessible approach to living mindfully and joyfully. In his revolutionary book, Dr Chilton seamlessly distills concepts from groundbreaking thinkers such as Eckart Tolle, Carl Jung, and Jon Kabat Zinn in a narrative that is delightfully eloquent and profoundly inspiring. There is Another Way to Happiness is truly a beacon of hope and light, guiding readers toward a brighter, more conscious way of being. This will now be the first book that I recommend to my patients and anyone else on a quest for peace and happiness.

Bestselling author Dr. Ski Chilton had a harrowing accident and faced death. This ordeal propelled him on a profound journey of self-discovery, during which he uncovered the true essence of human consciousness, leading to a remarkable healing of both body and mind. His inspiring narrative stands as a testament to the incredible capacity to transform pain into purpose. There is another BETTER way to happiness, one that lies within our own inner journey, and is profoundly illustrated within the pages of There is Another Way to Happiness.

“Dr. Ski Chilton, a humane biochemist with notable accomplishments of scientific excellence and a previous author of informative books about human disease and health, now personalizes a quest for mindfulness and happiness—while applauding the wisdom of his diminutive grandmother. As hinted by the book’s title, ingesting its content enlightens an ancient route toward happiness that never disappeared. This happiness route emerges for the reader from the ‘sounds of silence’ that whispers to Ski during treks with his dog into the canyons of Arizona. The name of the route is daily meditation.  There are no toll booths.”
