Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Soft-spoken Brendan Kelly humbly shares a myriad of observations from his year-long journey in this audiobook. Kelly, a psychiatrist who extolled the benefits of meditation to his patients, was determined to create a meditation practice that he could stick to, endeavoring to meditate for at least 15 minutes daily. The mental and physical challenges he faced and the lessons he learned about meditation, Buddhism, psychiatry, Irish culture, and more are delivered with a down-to-earth calm. Kelly's changing emotions about his accomplishments (and lack thereof) are also conveyed with an evenness fitting the Buddhist philosophy of acceptance and a lack of judgment. The tips on meditation and unique takeaways about psychiatry and the sociopolitical culture in Ireland are practical and insightful. A thought-provoking listen that might especially appeal to mental health professionals. M.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
