Renowned Scientist Discovers New Way to Happiness

TUCSON, Ariz. ― Scientists have a reputation for being highly rational, basing their opinions on empirical data. Acclaimed evolutionary biochemist and geneticist Dr. Ski Chilton was no different. Reflecting back on his accomplishments and outlook on life, Dr. Chilton admits, “there was not a person who pooh-poohed meditation more.” Then, a Sunday morning violent encounter with an untamed Arabian horse nearly cost Dr. Chilton his life, and “it was at that point that moving from science to the sacred in meditation became real.”

From his new vantage point in a wheelchair, Dr. Chilton shifted his focus from the purely empirical 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, Amazon #1 Best Seller, 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.

“It has taken me almost 60 years of life to discover that there is another way to happiness,” Chilton said. “That I have within me at any moment boundless access to a place of conscious awareness and stillness where my true self, freedom and peace reside.”

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 for awakening that encompasses four vital stages: Consciousness, Awareness, Surrender and Trust.

“Finding this place has been my spiritual awakening after spending my life battling insecurities, building a toxic and false egoic self, and searching for the worth that clearly wasn’t found in my accomplishments,” Chilton said. “And that’s what I want others to embrace through reading my book.”

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 unknowables, 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,” Chilton added. “There is Another Way to Happiness beckons you to step into a beautiful, transcendent path of living.”
