Harvard Book Store welcomes SHARON SALZBERG—renowned author and teacher of Buddhist meditation—for a discussion of the 10th anniversary edition of her New York Times bestselling book, Real Happiness: A 28-Day Program to Realize the Power of Meditation.

About Real Happiness

From Sharon Salzberg, a pioneer in the field of meditation and world-renowned teacher acclaimed for her down-to-earth style, Real Happiness is a complete guide to starting and maintaining a meditation practice. Beginning with the simplest breathing and sitting techniques, and based on three key skills—concentration, mindfulness, and lovingkindness—it’s a practice anyone can do and that can transform our lives by bringing us greater resiliency, creativity, peace, clarity, and balance.

This updated 10th anniversary edition includes exercises, journal prompts, and ten guided meditations available.

Praise for Real Happiness

"Real Happiness is a real treasure. Salzberg gives us simple, practical, effective methods to have a real shot at it! She helps us to stop our running madly in the wrong direction, to see the real thing right there, waiting for our tender, mindful awareness to enjoy its free reality. I love it and highly recommend it!" —Robert Thurman, PhD, author of Inner Revolution and Infinite Life: Awakening the Bliss Within

“An inviting gateway to the interior territory of profound well-being and wisdom.” —Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are
