Buddhist philosophy has helped radio, television and comedy star Meshel Laurie survive many life crises. But when she found herself facing the end of her nineteen-year marriage, she realised there were no Buddhist books about break-ups. So she wrote one.

Using Buddhism as a roadmap for navigating the fear, loneliness and grief of a broken heart, Meshel explains how the concepts of Emptiness and Impermanence can help us to see things clearly. With her wry humour and trademark honesty, she shares how one of her biggest challenges turned out to be a golden opportunity for personal growth and greater happiness.

Whether you’re dealing with the breakdown of a marriage, the demise of a relationship or the disintegration of a friendship, Buddhism for Break-ups is your go-to guide for zen!

    Comments about Buddhism for Breakups:

    Not just for partnership breakups, but also friendships and accepting that change is inevitable. A wonderful, honest interpretation of how to look at loss or change in life.

      This was a practical book - full of scenarios I related to. The advise made sense and confirmed many things I have come to realise through my own separation.
