Publisher's Summary

How can we be more mindful when the world is this f--ked up?

How to Stay Human in a F*cked Up World is the fresh, engaging answer to this important question. If you’ve tried mindfulness before and failed, we get it. Likely, you were told to sit on a pillow in a dark room, meditate, or count your breaths. But mindfulness isn’t about separating ourselves from the problems in the world. Instead, it is about relearning how to get out there, connect with the suffering of every living being, and in so doing, embrace your own personal suffering to heal, transform, grow, and finally find peace.

Tim Desmond - an esteemed Buddhist philosopher who has lectured on psychology at both Harvard and Yale and studied under Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh - has spent his life cultivating new ways to bridge the gap between the ancient tradition of mindfulness and modern life. With How to Stay Human in a F*cked Up World, Desmond gets right to the heart of our collective pain with a life-changing mindfulness practice for surviving the sometimes-miserable world we live in, featuring strategies and guidance you can start using to feel more connected, joyful, and present today.

Really good listen

I'd recommend this to folks hoping to make some changes big or small. I have thoroughly enjoyed it twice now to go through some of the exercises.

Splendidly Human!

I selected this work to help me better understand “mindfulness” and found myself pleasantly excited each time I resumed the Audible. The author demystified and connected this subject to the real world for me and added that piece of humanity to it that I had been missing. At first I was a bit skeptical of the presentation but soon grew to appreciate Tim Desmond’s oratory skills as perhaps only the author could have performed it. Anyone interested in making their lives and the world a better place will surely benefit and enjoy this work. Gratifying!
