“At last someone gives a simple and clear introduction, for regular spiritual seekers like any of us, to the most important of all meditations—beyond the healthy calm, the deeply transformative analysis to discover the reality of it all!” – Robert Thurman, Ph.D., author of Inner Revolution, Essential Tibetan Buddhism and The Tibetan Book of the Dead
Come hear Robert Thurman talk with Scott Snibbe about his new book, How to Train a Happy Mind. Adapted from the Tibetan Buddhist lamrim “path to enlightenment,” Snibbe’s book presents an 8-step program that allows anyone to build positive mental habits through the lesser-known technique of analytical meditation. Working in much the same way as cognitive behavioral therapy, analytical meditation goes beyond the calm-inducing practice of mindfulness to actively train the brain toward happiness through easy-to-follow narrative visualizations. Breaking the path down into concise steps and written in a relatable tone with plenty of references to popular culture, this is the ideal book if you recognize your mind as both the source of your problems and the source of your solutions.
