A MONK'S GUIDE TO HAPPINESS Meditation in the 21st Century

by | Read by Gelong Thubten

Spirituality • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

In 2009, Gelong Thubten emerged from a four-year Buddhist meditation retreat to find what he calls a "zombie apocalypse"--a world in which everyone at all times is glued to their phones. He realized that meditation training was exactly what a stressful, overconnected society needs. Author and narrator Thubten now travels 300 days a year to teach meditation in hospitals, prisons, universities, and global technology companies. This experience makes him a relaxed and efficacious narrator who has a passion to explore the mental experience of happiness. Thubten concludes each chapter with a meditation exercise designed to ease listeners into an achievable regular practice. Longer guided meditation sessions for each technique are included at the audiobook's end. Thubten's instructions for "mindful micro-moments" stand out as especially transformative.
