About-

Mindfulness for a Happy Life is a beautiful guide to what insight meditation really is. Robert’s personable, funny, sweet, sad, and ultimately human and humane teachings are told in simple terms so that anybody, from the skeptic to the monk, can access the heart and truth of mindfulness practice.

If you have never meditated and can’t understand why anyone would spend time on a cushion doing nothing, this is the book for you. You will find down-to-earth instructions that give you a direct experience of mindfulness as well as ways to measure the impact of your mindfulness practice. This book will inspire you to love life and to face everything that comes your way with grace, compassion, and wisdom.

If you have meditated all your life, but not found awakening, this book is for you. This book will demystify and clarify the teachings of Buddhism so that you can better understand your own process. You will find instructions and stories that will change your practice. Instructions, exercises, and stories are used to give you an experience that can shift your perspective and transform your practice so that you access happiness through insight.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“An elegant and straightforward exposition of Buddhist teachings and the path to embody them.”

—Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart



“Robert Beatty has only ever shown up fully as himself—never a hint of projecting some cherished self-image—and has skillfully incorporated the practices of deep insight meditation into the unfolding stories of our all too human lives. I have known him to courageously offer his own life examples as grist for this mill. This exemplary courage of his to teach in this way has consistently had the effect of encouraging others to reframe their own life experience, take on the deeper practice as a personal truthing mechanism, and consciously evolve their relationship with reality joyfully.”

—Peter Moore, Director, Breitenbush Hot Springs and Conference Center, Detroit, Oregon



“This book is infused with Robert’s personal experiences as a human being, a therapist, and a Dharma teacher in a practical and understandable way. Robert’s many years of practice and teaching, his willingness to tell his own story in a way that allows us to explore our own experiences, and his unique approach through music, sitting, movement, talks, teaching, and supporting were ideal ways to pass on this practice to us.”

—Jean Crowder, former Member of Parliament for the Canadian Government
