Summary

The key to happiness is recognising that yes, this is it. You're all you have to work with and this moment is the only one you can have any control over. And this is incredibly empowering, because everything you need is already there and the tools are already in your hands. You are your greatest project - this is it.

This Is It is a practical meditation guide that uses humour to teach the benefits of mindfulness through a series of accessible techniques. It’s also a hilarious account of one man’s attempt to find peace in a chaotic life, and follows his journey from the bogs of Kildare to the bright lights of LA and on to enlightenment in India. However, despite travelling the world he found that much of the wisdom he discovered had parallels in Irish attitudes to life, that there’s an intersection between ancient wisdom and what Irish people lick off the stones. 

Now a meditation teacher in Berlin, Morocco and Dublin, Conor gently and skilfully explains the lessons he’s learned along the way to finding peace, and with warmth, wit and wisdom guides you on the path to a more mindful life.

Loved the whole thing

A one of a kind book. Conor shares his ongoing journey with meditation without any sugar coating, pretentiousness or cringeyness. He does so in such a genuine way that is a joy to listen to.... Made me l-o-l at the times I didn’t expect to be laughing? Great wisdoms are seamlessly weaved into the book in a relevant and authentic way. The narrator’s gorgeous voice doesn’t hurt either! I look forward to replaying to some of the stand-alone chapters, maybe even buying the book to highlight and refer back !

Wise words and good humour!

My first audible review after a dozen or so books. First things first - so many audio books are read in boring monotone voices. The expressive Irish accent in this is a welcome change, and add in copious amounts of wisdom anchored in real life and useful practical exercises makes for a winner. Whether you are new to meditation or a seasoned practitioner there is something here for you to get your teeth into. So good I listened twice - another first for me and audio books :-)
