Tiny Wisdom eBook Series

The Tiny Wisdom blog posts have been some of the most popular on tinybuddha.com, viewed by more than 8 million readers.

They aren’t lengthy how-to posts with overwhelming lists of action steps. They’re short reflections on the little things that make a huge difference in our daily lives. They’re reminders of what matters and how to embrace it, right now, instead of focusing on all the things that only bring us down.

They’re concise. They’re focused. Most importantly, they’re relevant to the challenges we all face every day.

In recent months, I’ve received countless emails from readers asking me to compile some of these posts into an eBook—so I decided to do something even better.

I created 5 short eBooks with posts on the following topics:

These eBooks are available individually or as a complete package. On it’s own, each eBook costs $4.97. The full package of five costs $19.97—which essentially means you get one free if you buy the whole series.

8 Reasons to Buy the Tiny Wisdom eBook Series


I’ve hand-selected the best posts in each category (based on shares and reader feedback) and compiled them into anthologies based on common themes.

Currently, all of the Tiny Wisdom posts are part of one category on the blog, meaning there is no option to search for them by topic. This provides you with an easy way to access to the most useful posts on a given subject.


Each eBook touches upon issues relevant to everyday life.
Whether you need help forgiving, accepting yourself, living in the moment, or healing, you’ll find suggestions to help you move forward and feel better—right now.


I’ve shared myself candidly in my writing.
If you’ve read a Tiny Wisdom post before, you’ve likely noticed that I draw heavily from my own experiences. While many of the topics aren’t new, I believe I’ve presented fresh perspectives on them by sharing how I’ve struggled, and what I’ve learned and continue to learn.


Each eBook comes with three files: a PDF, a MOBI file, and an ePub file so you can read these on a number of reader devices.
Whether you have a Kindle, an iPad, a laptop, or any other cool gadget I don’t know about, you can read the Tiny Wisdom series with ease.


The eBooks are beautifully designed by the site’s designer, Joshua Denney.
Joshua of Think Web Strategy has consistently done amazing work, creating a tranquil feel for the site and all related material.


Each eBook contains 20 striking Buddha photos.
I’ve received countless emails from readers noting how much they enjoy the Buddha photos from the Tiny Wisdom posts. In buying the series, you’ll have 100 beautiful Buddha images, all together, should you wish to meditate on them at any point in time.


The eBooks are affordable—and you can buy them individually, if you don’t feel drawn to the entire series.
I aimed to price these reasonably. I personally would never spend $27 or $47 for one eBook. I’m a frugal shopper—and I priced these with people like me in mind.

Also, I created five separate eBooks (around 50 pages each), as opposed to one long one, so that you could pick and choose if there are some topics that are less relevant to you than others.


Buying the Tiny Wisdom eBook series supports me and my work on the site.
If you’ve enjoyed the content over the past few years and want to support the site’s growth, this is a great way to do that!

About Me

My name is Lori Deschene, and I am the founder of Tiny Buddha. I grew up in Massachusetts where I spent most of my free time performing in musicals, and eventually studied acting and writing at Emerson College. After working dozens of jobs in numerous fields, I finally realized that I find peace, passion, and purpose by sharing my experiences and lessons.

In my younger years, I carried around numerous victim stories and dumped them onto anyone who’d listen. I didn’t believe I deserved love because I felt intrinsically flawed, but I thought if I complained enough I might receive understanding and compassion.

After years of stewing in negativity and misery, I realized I was consciously choosing to hurt and that I could also choose to heal. I could choose to peel away the layers of my defenses and discover the potential underneath.

I knew it wouldn’t be easy—that I’d have to let go of certain things and make certain choices over and over again. And so I do, in as many as moments as I can, knowing I will never be perfect but finally accepting that’s okay.

I run a community blog about wisdom because I believe we can all do something positive with pain from our past and, in doing so, create meaning, joy, and connection in the present.

These eBooks are a reflection of my work here over the last three years. I hope you enjoy them!

Soul Speak

The Tiny Wisdom Ebook Series is filled with nuggets of love, hope, and definitely tons of wisdom. Lori’s unique ability to connect us with her experiences and make us feel like they are our own is beautiful and refreshing. Her conscious contemplation is honest and heartfelt. She pulls the truth out of everyday moments and shines the light on the sometimes elusive present moment.

I definitely recommend that you read each of these sweet books. They are perfect for reading one post each morning and carrying its wisdom with you throughout the day. Or – if you’re like me and can’t put them down – they are also great to read straight through! These ebooks will help you awaken to the magic of each moment and also to the magic that always resides within you.

Tiny Buddha’s new eBook series is a keeper! With volumes on self-love, happiness, mindfulness, love, and pain, Lori Deschene shares openly and generously from her life. You’ll feel the empathy that comes through in Lori’s writing… it’s almost like having a friend in the room with you letting you know, “It’s going to be okay, I know that feeling too, and here are some things that helped me.” Highly recommended.

Work Happy Now

Whether you need a quick pick me up or want to dive in to do some deeper personal development work I would recommend Lori’s amazing books to anyone. I considered myself a studied person on happiness and I found quite a few nuggets of wisdom that I will apply to my life. Lori you’ve outdone yourself and packed these books with valuable insights. Thank you.


Jon Giganti
The Catalyst Project

Once again, Lori shares her profound wisdom with the world.  She brings her experiences and knowledge to the masses through easy to understand stories and words.  Exuding true vulnerability, Lori delivers real-world understanding to the reader.  These books are something you can go back to time and time again whenever you’re struggling.  If it’s mindfulness, peace, and happiness you’re chasing, you won’t be disappointed.


Harriet Cabelly
Rebuild Life Now

Lori touches the profound and the crux of the human condition in a most reader-friendly fashion. Her writing style captures the essence of what’s truly important in a way that makes the reader exclaim, “Yeah, that’s right; that is soo right-on.”  Her personal anecdotes bring it home for us all. She makes it so easy to grasp and hold onto the crucial and meaningful ideas and statements put forth on life’s biggies—love, pain, happiness, self-love, and mindfulness.
