Publisher's Summary

Whether it's the end of a marriage, a romance or a friendship, break-ups are an unfortunate part of life. They can stir up horrible emotions and make you want to do crazy things. But when comedian Meshel Laurie faced the end of her 19-year marriage, Buddhist philosophy helped her turn her biggest challenge into an opportunity for personal growth and greater happiness.

Now Meshel shows listeners how Buddhism can be a road map for navigating the fear, loneliness and grief of a broken heart. Sharing her own story with humour and honesty, she explains:

  • How the Buddhist concepts of emptiness and impermanence can free us to see things clearly (and calm the heck down!)
  • How to love without attachment
  • The difference between loneliness and aloneness
  • How to work through all those disturbing emotions
  • How to embrace change
  • How to harness wisdom and compassion in order to heal

Way cheaper than hours of therapy, Buddhism for Break-ups is your go-to guide for Zen!

It's good but I can't relate to it

The background of her story is about her divorce involving kids. I couldn't relate much.

Listen twice!

What did you like most about Buddhism for Break-ups?

This is a fantastic book. Meshel does a brilliant job of making Buddhist concepts easy to understand. She also manages to help make breakups feel a lot more manageable (and reminds us that at some point, almost everyone has been through one).

Brilliant. Thank you Meshel!

I'm not going through a breakup but have listened to Meshel's book twice. It teaches so much about relationships, both romantic and friendships that I will always remember. I'm sure I'll listen to it again and again over time. Thanks to Meshel for narrating her own book also, it makes all the difference.

"Aha!" Moments galore! Guidance for peacefulness

Meshel is marvellous.. Helpful, accessible, insightful, honest Buddhism for peacefulness . Such great post (or near) break up advice. In fact great for anyone and everyone who is or may one day be in a relationship.. Or even for those who may never be in a relationship. Fantastic advice to be solo. Served with a side of good humor about life. Thank you Meshel, this book helped me greatly in many ways.. Buddhism? Sign me up!

Good timing

Meshel hit the spot many times re handling breakup... It's always been such hard work for me to get over relationships even though I've initiated the closure , I love the Buddhist view, and Meshels great ideas to handle things in a better way. Funny too, love the humour scattered amongst wise words . Thanks Meshel
