 The restless mind is frightened of silence, easily bored, and busy, busy, busy.

The restful mind is creative and alert, relaxed and confident.

The step from one to the other is all in the way we think.

His Eminence Gyalwa Dokhampa has a real understanding of the pressures of modern life and how

our crowded minds have left us too little space to stretch and grow. In this new book, The Restful Mind,

he shows us new ways to calm both body and mind, become more aware, better able to deal with

problems and appreciate the moment.

 Covering the three things you need to help you get started, the key tools of the restful mind, reasons

for, and how to meditate, the importance of daily breathing, the art of letting go, and nourishing the

body to nourish the mind, The Restful Mind is a retreat for you and your mind. It also teaches

practical ways to combat stress, and prevent it from getting the better of us, at work and in family life,

as well as the importance of mindfulness.

It is with our mind that we create our world. Here's how to open it up and let the world in.


With a wide international following His Eminence Gyalwa Dokhampa is a young, charismatic teacher of the Drukpa school of Buddhism who understands the pressures of modern life and gives us practical ways to calm and focus our minds.

His Eminence the Gyalwa Dokhampa, more popularly known as ‘Khamtrul Rinpoche’ teaches worldwide, bringing a young and vibrant viewpoint to traditional Buddhist teachings.
