Field Guide to Happiness

What I Learned in Bhutan about Living, Loving and Waking Up

«Now, you've gone and done it, Linda Leaming. This book has impelled me to add a whole new country to my already-overflowing bucket list. But either way, I'm grateful for this most excellent field guide to happiness. Thank you, my fellow traveller, for sharing the love. -- Pam Grout, #1 New York Times bestselling author of E-Squared and E-Cubed Linda Leaming writes with a sweetness and an earned wisdom that goes down as smoothly as a good cup of tea. She is also very funny. If you are alive, or would like to be, read her A Field Guide to Happiness and find joy on every page. -- Eric Weiner, author of The Geography of Bliss Linda Leaming offers us a fresh perspective of embracing life's challenges while pursuing our dreams. Delivered with down-to-earth wisdom and intelligent humour, A Field Guide to Happiness takes us on a Himalayan journey to Bhutan while never veering far from the heart. -- Matteo Pistono, author of Fearless in Tibet and In the Shadow of the Buddha With Bhutan as a backdrop, Linda Leaming's intimate offering of life lessons in A Field Guide to Happiness encourages deep exploration in our own interior landscapes. This gem of a book is an invitation to know we have all we need to surrender in the arms of joy, and measure our aliveness with heartfelt connection instead of speed and productivity. Read it slowly and savour each morsel. -- Nancy Levin, bestselling author of Jump... And Your Life Will Appear»

'In the West, we have everything we could possibly need or want - except for peace of mind,' Linda Leaming writes, 'We go to extravagant lengths to try to be happy. Living in Bhutan and the United States has taught me that we can all learn to create a space within us where we are untouched, at our best, where we can be open to life and we can be, even in the darkest hours, calm and relatively happy.

'In the West, we have everything we could possibly need or want - except for peace of mind,' Linda Leaming writes, 'We go to extravagant lengths to try to be happy. Living in Bhutan and the United States has taught me that we can all learn to create a space within us where we are untouched, at our best, where we can be open to life and we can be, even in the darkest hours, calm and relatively happy.'

A Field Guide to Happiness is a practical and inspirational guide to living more simply and in balance. From her experiences as an American writer and teacher living in Bhutan, Linda Leaming shares endearing, often humorous stories from the happiest country in the world. Having spent her early years in Nashville, and most of her adult life in Thimphu - two wildly different and unique cities in their own right - Linda has been forced to think differently about time, work, money, family and herself. Instead of fuming impatiently in line at the bank, she decided to take up knitting. By calming down and going with the flow, she's learned to relax and embrace the absurdity that is everywhere. And facing her own mortality, 'thinking the unthinkable', has inspired her to live life to the fullest, with ease, fearlessness and believe it or not, laughter. A special section at the end of each chapter gives concrete steps for creating more happiness in our lives.
