Calm

Vintage Minis

  • Tim Parks



Vintage Minis bring you the world’s greatest writers on the experiences that make us human – from birth to death and everything in between

How do we find calm in our frantic modern world? Tim Parks – lifelong sceptic of all things spiritual - finds himself on a Buddhist meditation retreat trying to answer this very question. With brutal honesty and dry wit, he recounts his journey from disbelief to something approaching inner peace and tackles one of the great mysteries of our time – how to survive in this modern age.

Selected from the book Teach us to Sit Still by Tim Parks

Praise for Calm

Teach us to Sit Still made me laugh; it made me cry; and it made me seriously think about taking up Vispassana meditation

Will Self, The Times
