“Josh Korda makes Buddhism relatable and fresh, weaves in neuroscience and psychology, and serves it all up with a heaping dollop of candor, fearlessness, and wit. This book is a how-to guide for people wanting to learn how to face demons, forge deeper connections, sit comfortably in their skin, and step away from the distractions of social media and mindlessness of consumerism—things we all know will never leave us satisfied. Tune in and unsubscribe.”—Cara Buckley of The New York Times


“Josh Korda has laid out a no-nonsense psychological roadmap for anyone who wants to get to the heart of their stuck patterns. It’s rare that a teacher is so honest about himself, and it humanizes the practices, allowing the reader to see their way through to profound inner change and connection with others.”—Lodro Rinzler, author of Love Hurts


“Inspired. Unsubscribe offers a way to radically change your life into wholehearted being. Read. Explore. Engage!”—Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison, editor of Awake at the Bedside and Guiding Teacher of the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care


“Josh Korda brings a fresh face to Buddhism. His teachings, grounded in the Theravadan tradition are derived from his personal experience of addiction and recovery. He presents the dharma in a way that is accessible, engaging, confrontational, and honest. A contemporary sutra the dharma curious and the seasoned practitioner, Unsubscribe offers us the opportunity to see the Buddha Way through a new lens.”—Sensei Robert Chodo Campbell, New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Josh Korda left his high-powered advertising job—and a life of drug and alcohol addiction—to find a more satisfying way to live. In Unsubscribe, he shares his three-step guide to recovery from addiction to consumerism, self-deception, and life as you thought it had to be:

  1. Reprioritize your goals, away from a materialist vocation toward a fulfilling avocation
  2. Understand yourself and your emotional needs
  3. Connect authentically with others, leading to secure relationships and true community.

Revolutionary, compassionate, and filled with wonderfully practical exercises, Josh will help you lead a more authentic, more fulfilling life.
