A Field Guide to Happiness - Linda Leaming


We have run out of stock for this item.

Forced by circumstances and her rustic surroundings to embrace a simplified life, Leaming made roam for more useful beliefs. The thin air and hard climbs of her mountainous commute put her deeply in touch with her breath, helping her find focus and appreciation. The archaic, glacially paced bureaucracy of a Bhutanese bank taught her to go with the flow - and take up knitting. The ancient ritual of drinking tea brought tranquility, friendship, and eventually, a husband. Each day, and each adventure, in her adopted home brought new insights and understandings to take back to frantic America, where she now practices the art of "simulating Bhutan". This collection of stories, impressions, and suggestions is a little nudge, a push, a leg up into the rare field air of paradise - of bright sunlight and beautiful views.
