Description

How can we develop radically happiness? A discussion and book talk with Phakchok Rinpoche and Erric Solomon

Join us for an evening with Phakchok Rinpoche and Erric Solomon, who will talk about their new book, Radically Happy, followed by a book signing. Books will be available for sale.

East meets West in this fresh, modern take on a timeless challenge: how to find contentment and meaning in life.

In Radically Happy, a meditating Silicon Valley entrepreneur teams up with a young, insightful, and traditionally educated Tibetan Rinpoche. Together they present a path to radical happiness—a sense of well-being that you can access anytime but especially when life is challenging. Using mindfulness techniques and accessible meditations, personal stories and scientific studies, you’ll get to know your own mind and experience how a slight shift in your perspective can create a radical shift in your life.

Praise for Radically Happy:

“Meditators or not, we all need an easy-to-use, pragmatic operator’s manual for the mind. You’ve found it here.”—Daniel Goleman and Tara Bennett-Goleman

“Radically Happy brings the new and the old together in a beautiful way. The combination helps us understand how meditation, kindness, and wisdom can make a real difference, moment to moment in daily life.”—Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

"A young, classically trained Tibetan Buddhist master and a veteran Silicon Valley engineer-entrepreneur makes for a great combination. Together, their personal stories bring their teachings on radical happiness to life.” —Chade-Meng Tan, bestselling author of Search Inside Yourself

“This extraordinary book carries the reader quickly into a direct experience of deep wisdom and inner peace, with lots of gentle humor and nurturing support along the way.—Rick Hanson, Ph.D, author of Resilient: How to Grow an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength, and Happiness

Phakchok Rinpoche is a premier example of a new generation of Tibetan Buddhist masters. He combines the most profound aspects of traditional wisdom teachings with his pithy, humorous

observations of their ongoing relevance to the incredibly fast pace of modern urban life. Born in 1981 to a family recognized for their generations of spiritual accomplishment, Rinpoche was recognized as the seventh Phakchok Rinpoche and incarnation of a great teacher and meditation master. Receiving ordination from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Rinpoche received a thorough education and training in Buddhist philosophy and meditation, studying with some of the most accomplished masters of modern times. Rinpoche travels the world, teaching in Buddhist centers, universities, and monasteries from Asia to the United States, from South America to Europe.


Erric Solomon, throughout his career as a Silicon Valley technology entrepreneur and now as an author and innovative meditation teacher, has been interested in understanding the mind and how it functions, both as a user-experience designer and as a mind hacker. Erric’s interest in human computer interaction took shape when, as a teenager, he taught programming to children and school teachers. As a participant in the Logo Group at MIT’s Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, he interacted with some of the world’s deepest thinkers on how to make intelligent machines. This experience inspired a lifelong passion to understand the mind and how it functions, and it led Erric to the study of Buddhist theories of mind and the nature of consciousness. He has been an invited speaker to lead seminars and retreats in corporate settings—such as the World Bank and Silicon Valley tech firms—as well as in prisons, temples, and Buddhist centers across the United States and Europe.
