Publisher's Summary

Each day we deal with the challenges of ordinary life: a series of mundane experiences that could be summarized by the title of this book, Work, Sex, Money. We all hope that these aspects of our life will be a source of fulfillment and pleasure, and they often are. Yet they are also always sources of problems for which we seek practical advice and solutions. The best prescription, according to Chögyam Trungpa, is a dose of reality and also a dose of respect for ourselves and our world. His profound teachings on work, sex, and money celebrate the sacredness of life and our ability to cope with its twists and turns with dignity, humor, and even joy. He begins by breaking down the barrier between the spiritual and the mundane, showing that work, sex, and money are just as much a part of our spiritual life as they are a part of our everyday existence. He then discusses these subjects in relation to ego and self-image, karma, mindfulness, and meditation.

"Work" includes general principles of mindfulness and awareness in how we conduct everyday life as well as discussion of ethics in business and the workplace. "Sex" is about relationships and communication as a whole. "Money" looks at how we view the economics of livelihood and money as "green energy" that affects our lives. The result is an inclusive vision of life, one that encompasses the biggest issues and the smallest details of every day. There are, in fact, few definitive answers in these pages. There is, however, authentic wisdom providing us with tools we need to work with the toughest stuff in our lives.

    "A charmingly enlightening book."
    What made the experience of listening to Work, Sex, and Money the most enjoyable?

    Anything read by Graeme Malcolm goes down easily, but the subject matter is also good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Work, Sex, and Money?

    How sensible and applicable the advise is.


    What does Graeme Malcolm bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He has a gift for making a book sound the way it's supposed to, even if I don't know what that is.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. In fact, I've listened to it 3 times now.
