Publisher's Summary

Are you having a good day, enjoying the here and appreciating all that you have? Or are you stressed, anxious and worrying about the future? Join renowned vegetarian chef Rose Eliot, OBE, and a diverse group of people as they gather in Rose's sitting room to learn about mindfulness meditation from the wise and witty Buddhist monk Rose has invited to her home. "It's my hope that as you listen to this book you, too, may feel you are taking part, and that it may be as life-changing for you as it was for me." (Rose Elliot)

Brimming with inspiring insights and peppered with humour, I Met a Monk introduces mindfulness meditation and the core tenets of Buddhist beliefs, showing how we can easily apply them to 21st-century life. Set out as an eight-week course, each chapter ends with a concise summary of key points and recommended exercises to help put Buddhism into practice.

Rose's life changed when she met the monk.. She began to follow his simple suggestions and experienced for herself the happiness, freedom and peace he describes. And you can too.

    "Fantastic insight"
    If you could sum up I Met a Monk in three words, what would they be?

    A Fantastic insight


    What other book might you compare I Met a Monk to, and why?

    The art of happiness by the Dalai Lama & Howard C Cutler
    It's another fantastic insight into becoming happy


    What does Vivien Heilbron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Listening to a audiobook help me image the places people and other things


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I was addicted I couldn't turn it off I just wanted to know more

    I walk a lot and don't really like listening to music. I was told about audible so I gave it a go. Now I'm hooked!

    "Beautiful"

    Recommended for beginners interested in Buddhism. Asks the questions you haven't thought of yet, and the ones you already have.
    Simple and beautiful :)

    "Wonderful"

    Loved it. An interesting, insightful listen and a lovely story from Rose Elliot. I would recommend it as a great introduction to Buddhism once you have familiarised yourself with the concept of Mindfulness.
