Catching Z's: The Millennials Guide to Mindfulness

Jul 9, 2021

Linda Leaming first traveled to Bhutan in 1994, and moved there three years later. This tiny Buddhist country hidden away in the Himalayas is a very happy place for many. Its king believes in Gross National Happiness instead of Gross National Product. Leaming has written two books about her life in Bhutan and how she learned to live more simply, how she laughs at herself instead of getting mad at others, and how she slows down to look for magic-- because it's everywhere. In Bhutan, she's known for using a salad spinner instead of a washing machine, and her village man makeovers.  I had a great time talking with Linda as we explored: 

  • Being introduced to mindfulness through Bhutanese culture
  • Going to Bhutan originally
  • 4 pillars of gross national happiness in Bhutan
  • Thinking about death 5 times a day
  • Why thinking about death is constructive
  • Being happy where you are
  • Much more!
