How does a New York City publicist and party girl turn into a guru for the next generation? In her new book, SPIRIT JUNKIE: A Radical Road to Discovering Self-Love and Miracles (October 2011), Gabrielle Bernstein shares the story of how she transformed her life, offering her spiritual journey as a guidebook for overcoming fear, changing perceptions, and creating a life you’re psyched to wake up for.

Though still young (now thirty-one) and still rocking her Louboutins, Bernstein has traded self-doubt and addiction for a new kind of high. In 2005 she became a student of A Course in Miracles, and since then she has been guided to translate and teach those spiritual principles to the next generation. In the US Gabrielle has established herself as a mentor and spiritual big sister to young women nationwide, who these days are more interested in green juice, yoga, and meditation than nightclubs and the latest fashion trends. Her position as a leader in the new spiritual movement has been further cemented via her worldwide lecture circuit, weekly blogs (on GabbyB.TV), life coaching work with thousands, and her online presence as the founder of, a social networking site dedicated to helping women find mentors.

In this hip self-transformational book, Bernstein shows how to make happiness a way of life and shares the life-changing lessons that she has lived and learned in the hope that other young women will be guided to do the same. SPIRIT JUNKIE shows readers how to tap into their own spirit in their search for happiness. This is not a book on how to get happiness; rather it’s a guide to releasing the blocks to the happiness that already lives inside.

In an interview Gabrielle can discuss:

- Why it’s not a matter of how to get happiness but rather of how to release the blocks to the happiness that already lives inside
- Personal anecdotes about how she overcame her fearful mind—and the host of daily problems that resulted from it—to let her life flow
- The important role physical movement can play in developing spirituality
- How to find power in seemingly powerless situations
- The yearning she sees in today’s young women to build a life of happiness and inner beauty without sacrificing their sense of themselves in the world (or, put another way: their desire to keep their Manolos next to their meditation pillow)
