I met a monk, 8 weeks to happiness, freedom and peace
Publication year: 2015
Media class: Paperback
Pioneering vegetarian food writer Rose Elliot hones her characteristically warm and engaging narrative style to share her fascinating introduction to Buddhism. Having never truly been convinced on the idea of single, specific, spiritual practice - despite an unusual childhood growing up in a commune and as a granddaughter of a Medium - Rose discovered Buddhism much later on in her life and now she shares her positive experience and how it may benefit you, too. Part autobiography, part self-help book, 'I Met a Monk' forms a series of workshops, structured into eight chapters that cover the weekly discussions held between a Buddhist monk, Rose, and a group of men and women, including a student, a hairdresser, a doctor and a grandmother, where they talk about the Buddhist way to finding happiness, freedom and peace.
This book was very good, it’s a diary about a course that was lead by a monk about mindfulness. It’s light hearted with a clear message about how you could use mindfulness if you wanted too.
