East meets West in this fresh, modern take on a timeless challenge: how to find contentment and meaning in life.

In Radically Happy, a meditating Silicon Valley entrepreneur teams up with a young, insightful, and traditionally educated Tibetan Rinpoche. Together they present a path to radical happiness—a sense of well-being that you can access anytime but especially when life is challenging. 

Using mindfulness techniques and accessible meditations, personal stories and scientific studies, you’ll get to know your own mind and experience how a slight shift in your perspective can create a radical shift in your life.
 
PHAKCHOK RINPOCHE is a new generation Tibetan Buddhist Master. Born in 1981, Rinpoche was recognized as the seventh Phakchok Rinpoche and incarnation of a great teacher and meditation master. Receiving ordination from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Rinpoche received a thorough education and training in Buddhist philosophy and meditation, studying with some of the most accomplished masters of modern times, his main teachers being his grandfather Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche. Rinpoche completed his education at the Dzongsar Institute of Advanced Buddhist Studies in Bir, India, where he received the Khenpo title. Rinpoche travels the world, teaching in Buddhist centers, universities, and monasteries from Asia to the US, from South America to Europe.
ERRIC SOLOMON worked as a Silicon Valley technology entrepreneur before becoming a meditation teacher. His experience as a participant in the Logo Group at M.I.T.'s Artificial Intelligence Laboratory inspired a lifelong passion to understand the mind and led him to the study of Buddhism. He has been an invited speaker leading seminars and retreats in corporate settings as well as in prisons, temples, and Buddhist centers across the US and Europe.
