All take place on Wednesdays except for December 21—a Tuesday.
Two spiritual giants. Five days. One timeless question. How to find Joy? Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than fifty years of exile and the soul-crushing violence of oppression. Despite their hardships—or, as they would say, because of them—they are two of the most joyful people on the planet.
They explore the Nature of True Joy and confront each on the Obstacles of Joy—from fear, stress, and anger to grief, illness, and death. They then offer us the Eight Pillars of Joy, which provide the foundation for lasting happiness. Throughout, they include stories, wisdom, and science. Finally, they share their daily Joy Practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives.
We will discuss this book in 5 parts over 5 weeks. You can choose to read the book or not—Rev. Saramaria Allenby will walk us through it! Part 1—The Nature of True Joy: we are fragile creatures. Parts 2&3—The Obstacles to Joy. Part 4&5—The Eight Pillars of Joy.
