On Sunday, August 25 at 4 pm we are pleased to welcome Sean Meshorer to the store. He will be reading from and answering questions about his new book, The Bliss Experiment. There is no charge for this event.
We have a higher standard of living and more ways to instantaneously fulfill every desire than ever before. So why are we unhappy? Because happiness isn't what we really want. Happiness alone is fleeting and not deeply transformative.
Bliss is complete and constant, a spiritual state where happiness, profound meaning, and enduring truth converge. With bliss comes an unshakeable joy, interconnectedness, and a practical wisdom. Bliss is a simple, accessible, and lasting solution to our personal suffering, and to the societal and world problems that ail us.
You only need a moment of bliss to benefit your life. Give Meshorer's ideas and practices 28 days of dedicated attention, and you will see results. Bliss helps with stress, anxiety, and depression. It makes people more successful, better able to see and seize opportunities, and build or improve relationships.
This is the one essential book that distills and unifies seemingly competing practices, philosophies, religions, and psychologies. The Bliss Experiment, based on a successful seminar taught by Meshorer,includes dozens of stories, is backed by over 300 scientific studies, and includes exercises that have worked, time and again, for people from all walks of life. Many chapters also include a smartphone tag leading to a video of Meshorer demonstrating the exercise. Living proof of the effectiveness of his techniques, Sean suffers with severe chronic pain, and is able to live his life to the fullest through the practices he shares here.
