In Buddha’s Way of Happiness, mindfulness expert Thomas Bien invites us to view happiness as a state that is always available to us, provided we know how to move past the barriers that keep us feeling stressed and unhappy. Bien identifies the six most common obstacles that keep us from joyful living and shows how to change our perception of everyday experiences to allow for greater fulfillment.
