Buddhist monk, meditation trainer and author Gelong Thubten offers a guide to understanding the true power of meditation and mindfulness and explains how living in the present can transform your life and help us maintain our humanity and compassion in an increasingly busy world.

Thubten draws on his experience to show how you can cultivate daily mindfulness in practice. He offers tips on dealing with stress at work and explains how to introduce ‘micro moments’ into your routine and how to find your purpose in life.

Thubten was ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist monk in 1993 at Kagyu Samye Ling in the Borders of Scotland, Europe’s oldest and largest Tibetan Buddhist monastery, and is a pioneer in mindfulness meditation teaching. He has more than 20 years’ experience teaching in businesses, hospitals, schools, universities, prisons and counselling centres and works with the likes of Google and LinkedIn. He worked with Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton as the meditation consultant on the movie, Dr Strange, and with Ruby Wax and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura on How to be Human: the Manual.
