The Promise of Paradise



Why One Man Gave Up the American Dream?


The Promise of Paradise is an extraordinary guidebook that will give you the tools and the attitude to make the greatest move of your life. This simple, clear, and often humorous little book takes you through the true life lessons of wellness expert and spiritual teacher Dr. Jonathan Ellerby, who walked away from a quickly growing career in the U.S. in order to move his family to the Riviera Maya of Mexico and risk everything to take on the role of CEO of TAO Inspired Living, a residential development and event center dedicated to the pursuit of health and well-being.


In one of the most sought-after tropical destinations in the world, Jonathan reclaims age-old lessons and also faces the turbulent waters of relocation, societal fear, and cultural evolution in a time of global, financial, and spiritual upheaval. The resulting wisdom is a joy to read and a treasure chest of life-changing steps to put into practice. It is never too late to redesign your life!



“Jonathan’s new book helps us expand beyond the limitations of our imagination, revealing that ‘paradise’ is a choice.”
