We’re thrilled to announce the release of It’s Not Out There: How to see differently and live an extraordinary, ordinary life by Danapriya.

‘Buy one for everyone you know who is serious about life and how to live it well.’
Subhadramati, author of Not About Being Good

‘A starter-kit for making the most of your life.’
Maitreyabandhu, author of Life with Full Attention and The Journey and the Guide

Most of us constantly look outside ourselves for something: happiness, love, contentment. But this something is not out there. ‘It’ is within us. In It’s Not Out There, Buddhist teacher and mentor, Danapriya, helps you to look inside yourself in such a way that life becomes more vivid, joyful and extraordinary.

Although it’s informed by Buddhist teachings and Danapriya’s many years of Buddhist practice, It’s Not Out There is free of Buddhist terminology and is suitable for everyone – it’s not just for Buddhists or people with an interest in Buddhism. Danapriya is a warm, wise and encouraging guide and writes in simple, down-to-earth language. In each of the twenty-five short chapters he explores an area of life where we commonly experience difficulties and shows us how, by turning inwards and shifting our perspective, we can suffer less and begin to live our lives more fully.

In this video, Helen from the Windhorse Publications team interviews Danapriya about the book.
