TED Thursday: Serenity Now

Every Thursday I will be choosing and posting a TED Talk that I think should be shared with you. I will not go at length about the benefits of it; they speak for themselves! Instead, I will provide you with the quick presentation blurb for it from TED Talk. You take it from here! This week, the TED Talk I choose to share with you is:

The habits of Happiness
with Matthieu Ricard

What is happiness, and how can we all get some? Biochemist turned Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard says we can train our minds in habits of well-being, to generate a true sense of serenity and fulfillment.

He is a Buddhist monk, author and photographer. I first became aware of him because I came across the book: “The Monk and the Philosopher” which is a dialogue about Buddhism today between him and his father (a philosopher of course). He is also the Dalai Lama french translator/interpreter since 1989.
