Learn to Develop Life's Most Important Skill
What is the one thing everyone wants? Happiness. But where do we find it? French Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard has been working with scientists and Buddhist scholars to explore the effects of meditation on the brain and its correlation with happiness. What he discovered: Happiness is not something you seek, but rather it is a skill you develop.
On Happiness, the former cellular biologist merges the newest scientific research with traditional Buddhist teachings and contemporary Western philosophy to show you the keys to realizing the experience of happiness. Join Ricard on this audio adaptation of his book of the same title to learn more about:
- How to cultivate sukha—a balanced state of well-being that arises when we release ourselves from mental blindness and afflictive emotions
- Practices for working with your mind to develop attention, focus, and clarity—a foundation for inner peace
- How to work with the ego and time to enter the state of flow
Evidence of the profound and measurable effects of inner well-being on our bodies and minds continues to grow. Join Matthieu Ricard as your guide in unfolding the state of being that transcends all other circumstances and emotions—authentic happiness.
