'His guidance is spot on. Heaven knows, most of us need all the peace we can get' Daily Express

Includes a brand new introduction to offer help during a pandemic

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

In this book 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.

Abbot Christopher takes different aspects of happiness, examines them, tells us what monastic wisdom has to say about them, and offers us steps towards our own journey to finding happiness.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A jewel of a book * GUARDIAN *
Anyone who enjoyed the surprise hit television series The Monastery should be delighted with Christopher Jamison's book ... by the end I was left with the definite impression that the author himself is a sincere and honourable man who sees, in the best aspects of the Rule of Benedict, a genuine solution to the abominable problems of modern living * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
Lucid and insightful ... Friendly, clever and original * TABLET *
His guidance is spot on. Heaven knows, most of us need all the peace we can get * DAILY EXPRESS *
What can a monk tell us about finding happiness in our complicated modern world? A surprising amount, is the answer * SUNDAY TIMES *
Generous with his insights, but never self-righteous, smug or preachy. I felt better for meeting him -- Judy Finnigan
