Our Guest: 

JOSEPH EMET trained with Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh at Plum Village in France and was made a Dharma teacher in Thich Nhat Hanh's tradition. He has a doctorate in music from Boston University and is the author of Buddha's Book of Sleep (winner of the 2013 COVR Award for Book of the Year), Buddha's Book of Stress Reduction, and Buddha's Book of Meditation. The founder of the Mindfulness Meditation Centre in Montreal, Emet lives in Pointe-Claire, Canada.

Most of us have a habitual way of thinking that we have developed over our lifetimes. And many times, these ingrained thought patterns directly impact our emotional well-being. Yet, what we often fail to realize is that it is possible to improve our mood by changing our habits. In FINDING THE BLUE SKY: A Mindful Approach to Choosing Happiness Here and Now (a TarcherPerigee paperback; on sale October 4, 2016), Dharma teacher and author Joseph Emet (Buddha’s Book of Meditation) asserts that we can cultivate happiness by replacing our negative thought processes with positive ones.  Please visit his website: minfulnessmeditationcentre.org
