Why is 'being happy' such an imperative nowadays? What meaning do people give happiness?

In this audiobook Abbot Christopher turns to monastic wisdom to offer answers, and to explain that in essence happiness is a gift not an achievement, the fruit of giving and receiving blessings. Everybody is searching for happiness but not everybody knows how to find it. In modern Britain, more and more people say that their life is too materialistic and superficial, which leads to a feeling of dissatisfaction. Our consumer culture encourages the belief that happiness comes with pleasure, but this book will challenge that belief and encourage alternative approaches to how we view happiness.

Following the same accessible and engaging format of Finding Sanctuary, Abbot Christopher looks in turn at the demons that make us unhappy. As we face the causes of our unhappiness, we are blessed with an authentic joy that is the real meaning of happiness. Download and start listening now!

    " Very readable book using the 7 deadly sine + spiritual apathy to make you think about happiness. "

    " While I appreciated the approach and found mush of his initial discussion intriguing, I felt the brevity of the book prevented him from fully developing the Eight Thoughts. It is, however, a good introduction into the thinking of the early Desert Mothers and Fathers. "

    " Very thought-provoking. Simple. Accessible for folk who've not yet been introduced to the basics of Christian thought, Christian daily living in a world full of distraction. Highly recommended. "
