This Works : How to Use Mindfulness to Calm the Hell Down and Just Be Happy
by Paddy Brosnan


Overview -
Former investment advisor turned committed Buddhist shares a simple introduction to the deep wisdom and transformative practice of mindfulness.

This Works looks at mindfulness from a fresh new angle. Looking at it as something of the utmost simplicity, Paddy Brosnan teaches that mindfulness is not something you do but something you are. It's a way of a being.
Paddy used to be an investment advisor, but was going through life feeling angry and anxious, so he became a committed Buddhist and learned to calm the hell down. For him, mindfulness is two things: the formal meditation practice and its practical application in everyday life. In a way that can easily be understood by anyone, he explains the basics of mindfulness, how to develop awareness and what the spiritual benefits of a dedicated mindfulness practice are. Using examples from his own life and from the lives of his students, he illustrates how this practice can open up a whole new dimension of experience, enabling you to savour the pleasures in life as they occur, to be more fully engaged in everyday activities and to develop a greater capacity to deal with adverse events.
Written with the humour, compassion and relatability which have made Paddy's workshops so successful, This Works provides a very direct and accessible insight into how the development of awareness through mindfulness can ultimately bring us a deeper sense of contentment - or, put another way, how mindfulness can help us be happy.
