Buddhism and the science of happiness – chapters 12 and 13

November 5th, 2011

We are back with a very full show for you tonight. We have the wonderful William Woollard reading from his new book, Buddhism and the science of happiness. Tonight he reads Chapters 12 and 13! Great news that his earlier book, The Reluctant Buddhist is now available in Spanish!

Also tonight we were very lucky to have the amazing Lucille Barclay who came to our home to give her experience and took part in the show as well!

We play four tracks tonight from the Podsafe Music Network. First up is Stavia with Lucky Day, then Wonder by the Fire Apes, Rocky Votolato with White Daisy Passing and finally Can’t Believe by Pippa Rogers.

As usual we have shout outs and we pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate 6 years of doing the show and 1.3 million downloads! Have a fabulous week everyone!


  1. Thank you for your wonderful podcast. After leaving a corporate job and soul searching, I became a Nicheran Buddhist and received my Gohonzin in 2009.
    I was not only searching for work, I was searching for peace of mind and happiness.

    I found it!

    I am proud to say, last Sunday November 6th, my girlfriend Terri Clements received her Gonhonzon. She plays blues, classic and jazz guitar.

    You can hear her first spoken word piece here:


    BTW, Donna Parten and Dsash are friends of mine from Sacramento. Hear about you through John in Burlington VT.

    Thanks again!

  2. I just find your podcast a few days a go. When my Dad was having knee surgery thank you for help me make this time go faster. It will be 5 months this Sunday (Nov 20th) that I have been chanting nam-myoho-renge-kyo and is the best thing I have done in my life.

    Thank you for amazing show. I have gone back and listen to some old episode if your ever in Los Angeles let me know. I would love to meet up with you guys.
