“This book is better than chocolate!”—Tal Ben-Shahar, New York Times best-selling author of Happier and Choose the Life You Want Distractions are everywhere these days. Our thoughts drift to what we need to do tomorrow, or what went wrong yesterday. Even pleasurable things—like eating chocolate—don’t receive our full attention. We miss out on joy that is easily within reach! In Mindfulness Is Better Than Chocolate, David Michie gives us the tools to rewire our brains for happiness. “Mindfulness” is paying attention to the present moment, deliberately and nonjudgmentally—and science has shown that those who practice it experience a wealth of benefits: Reduced stress Stronger immune systems More ease in breaking bad habits Improved self-esteem Enhanced mental clarity Sharper memory Overall well-being . . . and better-tasting chocolate! As Michie explains, the way we see the world is our own creation. Drawing on both Buddhist teachings and contemporary science, he teaches us how to experience a mind free of stress and dullness. By harnessing the power of mindfulness and meditation, we can find everything we need to be fulfilled, productive, and content!

The Dalai Lama’s Cat is back! Latest title in the ever-popular and bestselling series. The Dalai Lama's Cat is back: irreverent, vain-and delightfully insightful as ever! When the Dalai Lama's inner circle is set the task of providing His Holiness with a book he can give his visitors, an unexpected volunteer stretches out her paws. The book is to summarise the four key elements of Tibetan Buddhism-and, importantly, to communicate how it feels to be in the profoundly reassuring presence of His Holiness. Who better to do this than his much-loved feline? Through encounters with celebrity visitors and her own intriguing adventures, the Dalai Lama's Cat explains all four key themes, not so much as ideas but as practices to be embodied. Along the way she even gets a new title: "Therapy Cat". If you have ever sought a summary of Tibetan Buddhist wisdom, albeit from an unusual and whiskery source, this may just be the book to get you purring!

The bonds we share with our pets go beyond words and are often deeper than many of our human relationships. What is the nature of these close connections? And what if our influence on pets, both in life and especially through sickness and death, is far more powerful than we ever conceived? David Michie draws on ancient Buddhist wisdom, supported by contemporary science, to provide fascinating insights into animal consciousness. He proposes that the pets with whom we share our lives are not there by accident. Whether your animal companion has fur, feathers or fins, he offers a treasury of practical tools to enhance your relationship with them in everyday life, as well as during times of challenge. Written with humour and compassion, and including extraordinary true stories from around the world, Buddhism for Pet Lovers reveals how our animal companions may indeed be among our most precious partners. For in helping them, our own lives are incomparably enriched too. 'If you have ever deeply loved an animal, this is, without doubt, the book for you.' Gail Pope, BrightHaven 'Our pets offer us one of our greatest opportunities to add compassion to the world. This book helps direct us to a path toward the blossoming of that opportunity.'
