9780415878159: Sustainable Happiness: The Mind Science of Well-Being, Altruism, and Inspiration

Today’s greatest health challenges, the so-called diseases of civilization―depression, trauma, obesity, cancer―are now known in large part to reflect our inability to tame stress reflexes gone wild and to empower instead the peaceful, healing and sociable part of our nature that adapts us to civilized life. The same can be said of the economic challenges posed by the stress-reactive cycles of boom and bust, driven by addictive greed and compulsive panic. As current research opens up new horizons of stress-cessation, empathic intelligence, peak performance, and shared happiness, it has also encountered Asian methods of self-healing and interdependence more effective and teachable than any known in the West. Sustainable Happiness is the first book to make Asia’s most rigorous and complete system of contemplative living, hidden for centuries in Tibet, accessible to help us all on our shared journey towards sustainable well-being, altruism, inspiration and happiness.

From the Author:

Raised by an existential psychiatrist in the heyday of psychoanalysis, as a boy I saw firsthand the costs of cutting psychotherapy and medicine off from their roots in our ancient spiritual traditions. As I admired my dad's mission, I also watched him struggle with poor health, burnout, blocks to leadership and to nurturing and being nurtured by his family life. I vowed to reunite modern medicine and psychotherapy with our lost contemplative arts and sciences. Following Carl Jung, I entered the time-machine of Tibetan Buddhism, to find the world's most scientific system of contemplative living. As our research opens new horizons in evolutionary biology, brain science and positive health, we now trace the "diseases of civilization" to the panicked child and cornered animal in us all, writ large in our global crisis in economics, healthcare, terrorism and climate change. This book is the first to make the maps and tools of humanity's most rigorous and complete path of self-healing and interdependence, hidden for centuries in Tibet, accessible to help us on our journey towards wellbeing, altruism, inspiration and happiness.

About the Author:

Joe Loizzo, MD, PhD, is a psychotherapist and founder of the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science, a non-profit contemplative learning community that helps people find sustainable ways of living in today’s complex world. On faculty at the Weill Cornell Center for Complementary and Integrative Medicine and the Columbia University Center for Buddhist Studies, Dr. Loizzo lectures widely on the role of contemplative science in the future of health, education and contemporary life, and teaches regular public classes and workshops at Nalanda Institute, New York Open Center, and Tibet House.
