What does it take to be happy? We’ve all asked ourselves this question at some point, but few of us have found the path to lasting fulfillment.
David Michie thought he had achieved his life’s goals—the high-level job, the expensive city apartment, the luxury car, great holidays...but a small voice was telling him he wasn’t really happy. A chance remark from a naturopath sent him to his local Buddhist center. There, he began the most important journey of his life.
In this simple but beautifully written audiobook, David Michie opens the door to the core teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. With wry, self-deprecating humor, he shows us how he began to incorporate Buddhist practices into his daily life. He explains how he came to understand the difference between the temporary pleasures of ordinary life, and the profound sense of well-being and heart-felt serenity that comes from connecting with our inner nature.

David Michie is a corporate communications consultant, published novelist and Buddhist practitioner who works in both Australia and the UK.
A novelist and former Type A executive offers a touching memoir about how Tibetan Buddhism transformed his life. Anesthetized by the mind's internal chatter and the temporary pleasures of modern life, many people overlook the freedom they have to choose their internal reactions to life's insults and tragedies. They're trapped by their habits and appetites, oppressed by the impulse to control everything. With his nuanced phrasing and perfectly natural diction, British actor Nicholas Bell adds enormous appeal to this elegant personal lesson. His understated vocal presence, combined with the author's humility and practical grasp of his subject, gives the production irresistible charm and accessibility. This beautifully rendered, beguiling introduction to meditation and Buddhist thought will help listeners consider realms of being they don't ordinarily visit. T.W.
