Ep36 - Haemin Sunim: How to Accept Yourself in a World Striving for Perfection

One of the world’s most prominent Buddhist monks, Haemin Sunim, joined us at Google in London to talk about self-care, discussing that only by accepting yourself - and the flaws which make you who you are - can you have compassionate and fulfilling relationships at home and work.

About the book
No one is perfect. But that doesn't stop us from imagining ourselves smarter, funnier, richer, or thinner, and how much happier we would then be. Love for Imperfect Things shows how the path to happiness and peace of mind includes not only strong relationships with others, but also letting go of worries about ourselves. With chapters on self-compassion, relationships, empathy, courage, family, healing, our true nature, and acceptance, as well as beautiful full-colour illustrations, Love for Imperfect Things is a much-needed guide for learning to love ourselves - imperfections and all. 

In this beautiful follow-up to his international bestseller The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down, Buddhist monk Haemin Sunim turns his trademark wisdom and kindness to self-care, arguing that only by accepting yourself – and the flaws which make you who you are – can you have compassionate and fulfilling relationships with your partner, family and friends.

HAEMIN SUNIM is one of the most influential Zen Buddhist teachers and writers in the world. Born in South Korea and educated at Berkeley, Harvard, and Princeton, he received formal monastic training in Korea and taught Buddhism at Hampshire College in Massachusetts. He is one of the most influential monks in the world, with 1.8 million followers on Twitter (@haeminsunim), Facebook and Instagram. Haemin lives in Seoul when not traveling to share his teachings. In Korea, The Things You Can See sold more than three million copies and spent 41 weeks at number one.
