Tina Turner has signed a deal to write a guide to life using Buddhist principles.
Happiness Becomes You: A Guide to Changing Your Life for Good will be released on 1st December 2020 in hardback and audio.
Turner has co-written with author Taro Gold and singer Regula Curti, and it promises to reveal the “deep wisdom that underpins her long-standing practice of Buddhist principles, providing a guide to these timeless concepts to help readers find happiness in their own lives”.
According to the book’s publisher: “Tina shows how all of us can overcome life’s obstacles—even transform the impossible to possible—and fulfil our dreams. For decades, Tina’s life has shined brightly as an example of someone who can generate hope from nothing, break through all limitations and achieve success that endures. Drawing on the lessons of her own experiences—rising out of sorrowful lows to stratospheric heights—Tina illuminates the spiritual lessons that have helped her elevate from despair, adversity and poverty, to joy, stability and prosperity.”
Turner added: “In this very personal book, I focus on core themes of my life: hope, happiness and faith. Even more to me than an inspirational philosophy that guides me, the wisdom of Buddhism actually saved my life. I’ll share the simple principles that brought me joy and fulfillment beyond my wildest dreams, so [readers] can realise their dreams, too. I’ll connect my experiences with the wisdom that helped me make the impossible possible and transform my life. Each page offers my heartfelt guidance to you for living with joy, because this is my greatest wish: That you become truly happy.”
