Summary
How can we stay engaged with life day after day? How can we continue to love what we do year after year? These are the questions best-selling author and beloved teacher Sylvia Boorstein asked herself. The result is Happiness Is an Inside Job, her best work to date, a warm, wise, and instructive book on how we can cultivate happiness even when the odds are against us. In her more than four decades of Buddhist practice and teaching, Boorstein has discovered that the secret to happiness lies not in monastic solitude but in cultivating our connections with the world, with family, friends, colleagues, and even those we do not know well. In this beautiful book, she reminds us that our hearts want to console, appreciate, encourage, and love and that restoring these qualities leads to a solidly grounded sense of happiness
Summary
A Buddhist teacher shares her secret to happiness, explaining how the three parts of the Buddhist path--mindfulness, concentration, and effort--can draw us out of the confusion and struggle of daily life
