Yongey Mingyur is one of the most celebrated among the new generation of Tibetan meditation masters. His new audiobook, Joyful Wisdom, addresses the timely and timeless problem of anxiety. "From the 2,500-year-old perspective of Buddhism," Yongey Mingyur writes, "every chapter in human history could be described as an 'age of anxiety'." So what do we do? Escape or succumb? "Buddhism," he says, "offers a third option. We can look directly at the disturbing emotions and other problems we experience in our lives as stepping-stones to freedom." Joyful Wisdom identifies the sources of our unease, describes methods of meditation that enable us to transform our experience into deeper insight, and applies these methods to common emotional, physical, and personal problems.

Professional reviews

"Anxiety is a part of everyday life, and learning to deal with it is a process that never seems to end. Mingyur offers an approach--steeped in Buddhist teachings--for dealing with anxiety in a positive and productive manner. His book is easily understood without any background in Buddhism or meditation. Further, its accessibility is increased by its conversational tone and by Feodor Chin's easy-to-listen-to narration. Chin is engaged and earnest in presenting the author's reflections on his youth and on issues that have come up in the course of his teaching. Maintaining a comfortable pace, Chin also projects a slight detachment that is consistent with the lessons being taught. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
