Meditation in the 21st Century – A Monk’s Guide to Fearless Living

Gelong Thubten is a Buddhist monk, meditation teacher and author from the UK.

He ordained as a monk 26 years ago at Samye Ling Tibetan Monastery in Scotland, and he has spent over six years in intensive meditation retreats, the longest of which was 4 years long.

Now regarded as one of the UK’s most influential meditation teachers, Thubten has pioneered the provision of mindfulness to businesses, hospitals, schools, universities, prisons and addiction counselling centers, over the past 20 years. He works with major global companies such as Google, Accenture and LinkedIn, and has lectured at Oxford University and for the United Nations.

Thubten teaches mindfulness to medical students at the National University of Ireland, and he trained Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton in meditation techniques during the filming of Marvel’s Dr. Strange.

Thubten collaborated with Ruby Wax on her book ‘How To Be Human’, and he is the author of the Sunday Times bestseller ‘A Monk’s Guide to Happiness’, which has been a huge success – #1 best-seller on Amazon, Top 10 Sunday Times Best Seller and second bestselling Mind, Body and Spirit book of 2019.

His new book ‘Handbook for Hard Times’ – A Monk’s Guide to Fearless Living – will be released in 2022.

'Thubten is a very generous and kind monk who writes with the lived honesty and humour of someone who has experienced the wisdom he shares. His writing is full of inspiration but also the pragmatism needed to form a sustainable practice. He clearly illustrates why we all need meditation and mindfulness in our lives'

Benedict Cumberbatch

“Thubten is able to explain meditation using clear language and an approach which really speaks to our modern tech-infused lives. With openness, humility and humour he delivers a deep message that will resonate in our modern culture”

Rami Jawhar, Program Manager at Google Arts & Culture

“The feedback from colleagues has been excellent and they found your delivery style to be highly engaging and approachable. We are now finding the value of being more mindful particularly as we are all now working in fast paced and ever-changing work environments”

Robert Manson, Head Of Occupational Health And Wellbeing, Morrisons

“Should be part of regular life of every Googler, make it part of onboarding, trainings, team meetings, everything!”
