Event Details


How can meditation help us live calmer and happier lives?

Join us for an evening of wisdom with Gelong Thubten, an inspiring British monk who is passionate about the life-changing power of meditation. Thubten will share practical ideas from his best-selling new book 'The Monk's Guide to Happiness' - to help us master our minds, develop compassion and find lasting fulfilment.

Thubten sees meditation as far more than just a tool for relaxation or stress reduction; he sees it as a vital foundation for living well in our busy modern lives. His ideas include how to practice micro-moments of mindfulness each day as well as techniques to help us overcome adversity and discover true happiness.

"His writing is full of inspiration, but also the pragmatism needed to form a sustainable practice" ~ Benedict Cumberbatch

"Warm, wise and generous" ~ Melanie Reid (The Times)


About The Speaker

Gelong Thubten became a Buddhist monk aged 21, after suffering from severe anxiety while living in New York as an actor, leading to a near-death burnout. Over the past 25 years he has gained extensive experience with meditation practices and studied under some of the most experienced Tibetan masters.

Thubten is now one of the UK's foremost meditation teachers, working with global companies, schools, Hollywood stars, universities, hospitals and prisons. His approach includes a strong focus on developing compassion.

He was the meditation consultant on the set of Doctor Strange (where he trained Benedict Cumberbatch and others) and recently collaborated with Ruby Wax on her latest bestselling book How To Be Human. His new book is A Monk's Guide to Happiness: Meditation in the 21st Century, published by Yellow Kite.

"Compelling to read, yet full of profound wisdom, this wonderful book describes how our mind functions and how we can cultivate the habit of happiness" ~ Professor Lokesh Joshi
