Product description

Review

Jamison’s book is a treasure, for it combines insights from philosophy, monastic sources, psychology and literature, as also stories of human struggles.
Horizons


Finding Happiness . . . is a map of the soul designed for our age: wise, lucid, inspiring, rich―a treasure-chest of gems that do not merely glitter.
The Way


This is a good book that challenges the mind because it is so clearly written.
Cistercian Studies Quarterly


This book is highly recommended to those looking for a book on spirituality that is based on an ancient and tried tradition.
American Benedictine Review


Finding Happiness: Monastic Steps to a Fulfilling Life takes the reader through a very personalized journey of the soul and spirit.
Lost in Books


The genius of this work lies in its integration of classical thought (Plato, Aristotle, and Cassian) with more current movements (e.g., cognitive behavior therapy, 12-step programs). Author Christopher Jamison, abbot of the Benedictine monastery in Sussex, holds these frames of reference in delicate balance; the resulting creative tension gives birth to a useful guide to living well. . . . This book is solid food for ‘personal soul-recovery.’
Prairie Messenger


It is rewarding to read this lovely book because through it one touches base with oneself as being human and Christian. Through the text the author gently nudges the reader forward once again on the path of effort and virtue. . . . There is a wise Christian behavioral psychology being presented here and one experiences a certain lightness in reading it. For you are advised to ‘travel light,’ to not be dependent on others for one’s happiness. And your journey is not meant to be burdensome as there will always be ‘a word to live by’ when one is in touch with the Scriptures.
The Furrow


[Reading] Finding Happiness has been a transforming experience, calling me to think deeply about the life I’m living and also confirming what I know and am currently doing.
Karen O’Connor, Author, Writing Mentor, and Speaker
