Michael Harding: On Tuesdays I’m a Buddhist
Join Michael Harding as he reads from his latest memoir, ruminates on the difference between psychotherapy and religion and relates the story of his pilgrimage to Skellig Michael, in his ongoing search for meaning.
After many therapy sessions focused on an effort to uncover personal truth, and long solitary months on the road with a one man show, Harding is finally led to an artists' retreat in the shadow of Skellig Michael. Mixing stories from the road with dispatches from his Irish Times columns, On Tuesdays I'm a Buddhist is a spell-binding and powerful book about the human condition, the narratives we weave around the self, and the ultimate bliss of living in the present moment.
'What happens between one story and the next? That's the really interesting part. That's the space where we find bliss; where we float sometimes, suspended, and only for a brief moment. Perhaps only for a few scarce moments in an entire life.'
"Harding’s latest attempt to find meaning in life is searingly honest, funny and self-deprecating." The Irish Times
