What would Buddha do? Buddhist philosophy has helped radio, television and comedy star Meshel Laurie survive many life crises. But when she found herself facing the end of her nineteen-year marriage, she realised there were no Buddhist books about break-ups. So she wrote one. Using Buddhism as a roadmap for navigating the fear, loneliness and grief of a broken heart, Meshel explains how the concepts of Emptiness and Impermanence can help us to see things clearly. With her wry humour and trademark honesty, she shares how one of her biggest challenges turned out to be a golden opportunity for personal growth and greater happiness. Whether you’re dealing with the breakdown of a marriage, the demise of a relationship or the disintegration of a friendship, Buddhism for Break-ups is your go-to guide for zen!

"Dear Reader – This is not a book about coping with unbelievable busyness. It’s a book about making it stop. What if I told you that a lot of what keeps you unbelievably busy is not only pointless, but avoidable, nonsensical and entirely driven by your own fears, insecurities and ego? You’d probably want to slap me, if you could find the time, right? Don’t worry, I was once just like you: exhausted, harried, overcommitted and flummoxed as to what to cut back on. I’m not completely cured, but for the first time in years I have room to breathe and to think about what kind of life I really want to live. And I have Buddhism to thank for this. In this book I’ve compiled the teachings, ideas and practices that got me to this point. Buddhism helped me dig deep to discover why I was determined to do so much, and why I was so afraid to stand still and be alone with myself. It’s not hippy-trippy stuff, believe me. Buddhism is just as relevant and practical in our modern world as it’s ever been. As crazy as it sounds, I’m asking you to add one more thing to your list today: read this book, and let it help you free yourself from the grind of your unbelievable busyness. Live the peaceful life you know you deserve and be the person you want to be. Meshel Laurie is a television and radio presenter, newspaper columnist, podcaster and official ambassador of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. She is the author of The Fence-Painting Fortnight of Destiny and Buddhism for Break-ups."

In 2003, Brad Warner blew the top off the Buddhist book world with his irreverent autobiography/manifesto, Hardcore Zen: Punk Rock, Monster Movies, and the Truth about Reality. Now in his second book, Sit Down and Shut Up, Brad tackles one of the great works of Zen literature, the Shobogenzo, by thirteenth-century Zen master Dogen. Illuminating Dogen’s enigmatic teachings in plain language, Brad intertwines musings on sex, meditation, death, God, sin, and happiness with an exploration of the punk rock ethos. In chapters such as “Evil Is Stupid,” “Kill Your Anger,” and “Enlightenment Is for Sissies,” Brad melds the antiauthoritarianism of punk with that of Zen, mixing in a travelogue of his triumphant return to Ohio to play in a reunion concert of Akron punk bands. For those drawn to Buddhist teachings but scared off by their stiff austerity, Brad writes with a sharp smack of truth, in teachings and stories that cut to the heart of reality.

For as long as I can remember, I've been focused on accumulation. I've been accumulating money, objects, jobs, respect, friends, invitations and ticks on the list in my mind called "Things I Should Have Done by This Stage of My Life" .... I feel like I've done everything I was supposed to do, but while I have lots of stuff, I have no time, energy or peace ... This isn't the way it was supposed to be. Meshel Laurie is all too aware that she's probably a very bad Buddhist, but every day she puts her energy into improving. She works in television and radio, creates podcasts, writes columns and books, and parents twins - so she also knows a thing or two about the mad juggle of modern life. In this collection of new and previously published writing, Meshel explores everything from the meaning of friendship to the travails of online dating, from mammograms to mid-life crises. With candid humour, she reveals her horror of family holidays after becoming stranded in Bali and reflects on what it was like to meet his one and only Holiness, the Dalai Lama. This is Meshel at her funniest and most relatable.
