Walk in Beauty

By Nick Goodman

When Nicholas Goodman signs up for rehab, he is lost in a world of substance abuse. The journey that ensues is a miracle made up of small daily choices. Inspirational, supportive, and deeply rooted in nature, Walk in Beauty is not simply the story of one man climbing out of dependence but rather the story of one man who wants to give that gift to others. He brings monumental change to his life and makes you feel you can do it too. Punctuated by letters from a benevolent guide, the book follows Nicholas as he faces adultery, illness, addiction, separation from a child, and unemployment. Listening to his own inner voice to navigate these challenges takes him on a grand adventure. His dedication to the path and gratitude for who and what is around him exude from the page to nurture your own spirit. Follow him and you will:

– explore spiritualities from around the world

– experience travel with no set destination

– witness the possibilities of life after addiction

– learn the tools that can help you get sober

– encounter the support you need to follow your own path

This is one man’s path to sobriety. Could it guide you to yours?

“Nicholas assisted my family and my husband after he was diagnosed with a life limiting illness. He was courteous, knowledgeable and above all present. His teachings enriched my life and assisted my entire family with my husbands passing. I am happy to see that his theories and experiences are now recorded in his debut book.”

“A unique examination of the human heart. With the use of mythology, philosophy and poetry, Nicholas explores the depths of human heart and leads readers on an emotional journey. Whether you have lost a loved one or are searching for meaning in life reading A Moment with Grace will benefit you.”

A.N. Ottawa, Ontario

“I struggled for years trying to cope with the loss of my mother and found therapy repetitive. I was fortunate to attend one of Nicholas’ grief workshops, and afterward my life completely changed. The workshop focused on A Moment with Grace and offered applicable wisdom from its pages. Nicholas invited me to interact with my grief and to ceremoniously engage with life. Since attending I have found peace, happiness and purpose.

What a marvelous man, and what an astonishing masterpiece he has created!”

But after finishing it the first time I recognized the deeper spiritual allegory. I invite everyone to read it and see which strata they descend to.”

“Nick was my addiction counsellor several years ago. He has a magical outlook on life that is contagious! I’m thrilled that he has released his debut book so that the world can benefit from his teachings about love, life death and spirituality.”

B.T. Toronto, Ontario

“I am an avid reader who enjoys a beautiful love story, and to date I have not found one that evokes as much emotion as A Moment with Grace. It is a celebration of love and a testament to the eternal bond of soulmates. A must read for romantics and spiritual seekers.”
