Happiness with Mo Gawdat

Living It podcast Rod Stryker

Mo Gawdat is the author of Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy in which he applied logic and problem-solving to the issue of happiness to create an algorithm to reach a state of uninterrupted happiness regardless of the circumstances of life. In 2014, Mo’s equation for happiness was put to the ultimate test when he lost his son Ali to preventable medical error during a simple surgical procedure. That led Mo to dedicate his life to share his happiness message with one billion people around the world. Solve For Happy is the pillar for this mission, #OneBillionHappy, Mo has committed to as his personal moonshot.

Shambhala Publications is the proud publisher of Living the Sutras: A Guide to Yoga Wisdom beyond the Mat by Kelly DiNardo and Amy Pearce-Hayden and The Mama Sutra: A Story of Love, Loss, and the Path of Motherhood by Anne Cushman.

Sutra is the Sanskrit name for a short spiritual teaching, and it comes from the same root as the English word suture, or stitch. This story of motherhood as a path to awakening is, says yoga and meditation teacher Anne Cushman, “an homage to the long threads that run through all human lives, stitching up what’s shredded in our hearts.” The Mama Sutra spans an eighteen-year journey through motherhood as a spiritual practice.
