Gelong Thubten

We're constantly being told happiness will come from material objects, but in this chat with Fearne monk Thubten explains why the outside world is trying to sell us an unrealistic dream. You don't need fixing; Thubten explores how meditation can help shift your focus from outside validation to finding contentment in your inner world.

A Monk's Guide To Happiness is out now, and contains lots more detail on those guiding principles.
