GELONG THUBTEN

Monday 27th September 2021

Komedia, Brighton

Gelong Thubten is a Buddhist monk, meditation teacher and author from the UK. He was educated at Oxford University, and became an actor in London and New York. In his early
20’s he suffered from severe burnout and a life-threatening heart problem. This dramatic wake-up call led him to join Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Scotland, where he ordained as a
monk.

Thubten’s book, ‘A Monk’s Guide to Happiness, Meditation in the 21st Century’ quickly became a Sunday Times bestseller.

The evening will consist of a discussion on the themes and content of his bestselling book, a guided meditation session and an uncensored Q&A with the audience. There will also be a meet and greet and book signing after the show.
