The Doctor Who Sat for a Year – Brendan Kelly

We have copies of “The Doctor Who Sat for a Year” in the shop!



The Book

As a psychiatrist, Brendan Kelly is used to extoling the benefits of a daily meditation practice, but following his own advice is a different story. Finding the time to sit quietly every day isn’t easy when you’re already trying to juggle a stressful job, a busy family life, a cinema addiction, a cake habit and low-level feelings of guilt over an unused gym membership.

But this is the year he is going to do it. Can he improve his life by meditating for 15 minutes every day? Will it improve his relationships with his family and patients? And will he ever be more Zen than Trixie the cat?

The Doctor Who Sat for a Year is a funny, thoughtful and inspiring book about embracing both meditation and our imperfections.
