Ending the Pursuit of Happiness Book Description :

We all have a right to the pursuit of happiness - but could we actually be happier if we gave that whole thing up? This surprising new book from Zen teacher, psychoanalyst, and critical favorite Barry Magid inspires us-in gentle and winking prose-to move on and make peace with the perfection of the way things actually are, including ourselves. Magid invites us to consider that our ''pursuit of happiness'' may actually be a source of our suffering. He takes an unusual look at our ''secret practices'' - what we're really doing when we say we're meditating-like trying to feel calmer, or more compassionate, or even ''enlightened'' (whatever we imagine that means!). He also uncovers our ''curative fantasies'' about spiritual practice-those ideas that we c...

Beyond Happiness Book Description :

Many books have been published in recent years on happiness. Ezra Bayda, a remarkably down-to-earth Zen teacher, believes that the happiness "boom" has been largely a bust for readers. Why? Because it's precisely the pursuit of happiness that keeps us trapped in cycles of dissatisfaction and suffering. Bayda offers alternatives to achieve the deepest, most lasting form of happiness through Zen insights and simple mindfulness practices. Most of us continually seek happiness in things that are external to us. We imagine that getting more money, a better relationship, or going on a nice vacation will finally make us happy. But Zen teacher Ezra Bayda shows us that it is only by dropping our pursuit of happiness and learning to surrender to what actually ...
