Publisher's Summary

Life is messy: no matter how we try to control our lives, unpredictable and difficult things happen to us all. 

Disappointment, heartbreak and anxiety are painful. But in this powerful, immersive audio experience, Mary Hoang reveals the hidden gold that lies in your darkness, showing you how exploring your shadows can give you a new sense of direction for the future. 

Does anxiety rule you? Do you sometimes feel like you’re not doing this whole life thing right? Do you find it hard to understand what self-love and self-worth really mean? 

If you’re reading this, you’re ready for change: to create space in your life for what really matters to you. 

Darkness Is Golden is your invitation to value and accept yourself – to trust your inner voice, break unhelpful habits and live a life on your own terms. 

Dealing with the mind is complex. Mary Hoang digs up the golden nuggets she has discovered over a decade in the therapy room, and combines them with unique audio experiences framed by her research in music psychology. You will learn how to build healthier relationships, make space for possibilities and find your wisdom. 

This book is an opportunity to open your heart, let go of past pain and find your way home – back to yourself. 

It’s time to dance with your darkness. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Brilliant

I’ve read a LOT of self help books but the content of this book brought some really new perspectives and clarity for me. It really complemented the things I’ve learned and heard before, and helped me better understand my own thoughts and beliefs, and implement strategies to improve my levels of acceptance, peace and happiness on a day to day basis. I found all of the information immensely helpful and the meditations, plus the music playlists, are excellent and very effective. Narration is calm and easy to listen to. Highly recommend!

Game Changer

Absolutely loved it! Dont roll your eyes and write this one of as just another self help book!! So well thought out , written and read. You can tell this wasn't just any old book. It was a book written from a place of great courage and vulnerability from someone who not only has the academic and work experience in this field but also someone brave enough to share her own personal journey - in a raw, honest, warts and all way! (which I'm sure many psychologists/studying psychs would also have but remain tight lipped scared that it may impact their careers negatively or that feel like frauds!) I just finished and i literally am about to start again! I was disappointed to have it end. Inspiring, educational, relatable and of course actually helpful!

Down to earth and real

Such and honest insight into living life to the fullest; ups, downs and excavating deep to the core. It’s all good. A never ending exploration.

Life changing and life saving

It is not too much to say that this book has saved my life. Whenever depression raises its head, I pick up this book and instantly know what to do. ‘Darkness is Golden’ is full of exceptional quality professional advice written in an honest tone, as if I was talking to a friend. Thank you, Mary Hoang, for writing this treasure for our hearts. May you be well.

Surprising & Revelatory

These meditations are so powerful and so I know I will continue to go back to them to discover further cobwebs and skeletons opening new doors to hidden rooms - once listening to this book is not enough

A deep study about what it means to be human in all of the internal richness that it encompasses. Profound.
