Author(s): The Happy Buddha
Happiness and How it Happens reveals how happiness-the state of being we all aspire to-is a natural state for us, and so is attainable for all. The Happy Buddha explores what happiness actually is and how we all can achieve it through the transformational practice of mindfulness meditation. Sharing personal and philosophical reflections, practical teachings, and enlightening insights into trust, compassion, radical self-acceptance, and the value of contentment, The Happy Buddha draws upon Buddhism, psychotherapy, and focusing (a method of listening to our intuitive wisdom) to reveal the true riches of wellbeing.
