Play • 35 min
In today’s episode, we’re going to delve deeper into some of my favorite topics, which are happiness and meaning. We often ask ourselves what can we actually do that will make us happy? Or how to find meaning in life? I am so glad to have one of the most knowledgeable experts on this subject, Dr. Jonathan Robinson to be my guest for my 50th episode and shed some light on how we perceive happiness and the meaning of life. Jonathan was extremely generous and shared a lot of his personal favorite techniques and practices for finding meaning in life and ultimate happiness. Jonathan Robinson is a psychotherapist, best-selling author of twelve books, and a professional speaker from Northern California. He has reached over 250 million people around the world with his practical methods, and his work has been translated into 47 languages. Articles about Jonathan have appeared in USA TODAY, Newsweek, and the Los Angeles Times, as well as dozens of other publications. In addition, Mr. Robinson has made numerous appearances on the Oprah show and CNN, as well as other national TV talk shows. He is one of the few blessed people that have interviewed such notable people as the late Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, Scott Peck, and over 30 other well-known seekers, which are all included in Mr. Robinson’s first book, “The Experience of God”.
