Book Synopsis

Based on the hugely successful podcast of the same name, A Skeptic's Path to Enlightenment provides a simple 9-step guide to using the power of analytical meditation to improve mental wellbeing by mixing Tibetan Buddhist Meditation with modern science, psychology and popular culture.

A Skeptic's Path to Enlightenment brings the science of Buddhist meditation to a rational, modern audience hungry for happy, meaningful lives.

Adapted from the ancient Buddhist path to enlightenment, this 9-step course is stripped of anything beyond what modern science and psychology tells us about reality. It introduces analytical meditation as a step beyond mindfulness, explaining its potential to train the mind toward positivity, connection and joy.

By establishing life-enhancing mental habits, analytical meditation works in the same way as modern positive psychology or cognitive behavioural therapy. It uses structured stories that deliberately fill the mind with specific ideas and emotions in a particular sequence, like in a movie. In doing so, you can train your mind toward happiness and resilience in everyday life.

As a twenty-year student of Tibetan Buddhism and self-confessed skeptic, Scott is the ideal bridge between the learning of the great Buddhist Masters and the realities of the modern world. With an accessible, humorous tone, and plenty of references to popular culture, this is the book for people who realize that their mind is the source of their problems and the source of their solutions.
