About the Author

Gelong Thubten is a Buddhist monk, meditation teacher and author from the UK. He ordained as a monk 26 years ago at Samye Ling Tibetan Monastery in Scotland, and he has spent over six years in intensive meditation retreats, the longest of which was 4 years long. He is now regarded as one of the UK's most influential meditation teachers, with pioneering work in providing non-religious mindfulness programmes to businesses, hospitals, schools, universities, prisons and addiction counselling centres. He works with major global companies such as Google, Accenture and LinkedIn, and has lectured at Oxford University and for the United Nations. Thubten teaches mindfulness to medical students at the National University of Ireland, and he trained Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton in meditation techniques during the filming of Marvel's Dr. Strange. Thubten contributed to Ruby Wax's most recent book, HOW TO BE HUMAN. His own book, A MONK'S GUIDE TO HAPPINESS was a Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller with editions in 10 countries internationally. Thubten's work has been featured in The Times and Guardian newspapers and on Sky, the BBC and ITV. He has appeared on some of the leading health and wellness podcasts, including Deliciously Ella and Poppy Jamie's Happy not Perfect.

Reviews

'Thubten is a very generous and kind monk who writes with the lived honesty and humour of someone who has experienced the wisdom he shares. His writing is full of inspiration but also the pragmatism needed to form a sustainable practice. His book clearly illustrates why we all need meditation and mindfulness in our lives.' * Benedict Cumberbatch *
'Gelong Thubten's book is as warm, wise and generous as the man himself. We've never needed a voice like his more.' * Melanie Reid, The Times *
'Compelling to read, yet full of profound wisdom, this wonderful book rationally describes how our mind functions and how we can cultivate the habit of happiness.' * Professor Lokesh Joshi, Vice President for Research, National University of Ireland *
'Thubten is able to explain meditation using clear language and an approach which really speaks to our modern tech-infused lives. With openness, humility and humour he delivers a deep message that will resonate in our modern culture.' * Rami Jawhar, Program Manager at Google Arts & Culture *
'Gelong Thubten's wonderful book provides a bracing challenge to our search for instant gratification and "instant" happiness, and a lucid, practical, step-by-step path to contentment and a genuine and lasting peace of mind.' * Mick Brown, Journalist for The Daily Telegraph *
