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.

Review for Happiness Review by Gregory P

Mathieu's perspectives on obtaining happiness are pure and simple to understand. At first I had a difficult time understanding some of his spoken word due to his accent. After listening twice, I find him very good and almost entertaining. I only wish one thing, I really wanted MORE, it is very short and I wish there were more teachings. I keep listening to the CD's over and over again to see if I can obtain a clarity to his word and each time I pick up something different.

Review for Happiness Review by Lynda Fletcher

The author never got to the "meat" and his accent is difficult to understand.

Review for Happiness Review by Terry Ochterski

Ricard is an amazing person. I've listened to his recording over and over. This is truly a very enlightening audio. A lot of common sense, but still something that deserves a lot of attention. After all, it's what we all want, happiness. Ricard sets you on a journey to find it in your life. Which is all anyone can do.... Point you in the direction.
Highly Recommended!
