Has 2020 sucked the Joy out of your Life?
Let the wisdom of two of the most joyful people on the planet help you find it again.
The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World is a book by the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. They discuss the challenges of living a joyful life. Both of the authors faced oppression and exile and yet have been able to maintain their compassion and forgiveness despite this. The Book of Joy is a conversation between the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu about finding joy and happiness in the face of suffering and grief.
This four week Zoom series will focus on “The Eight Pillars of Joy” and “Joy Practices” as shared in this book. These teachings can provide the foundation for lasting happiness. The Eight Pillars of Joy are a set of positive qualities that can help us experience joy, not as a fleeting emotion, but as an enduring part of our lives.
Each session will start with a lecture by Mary Veal, followed by group discussion and time for questions. This course will be offered online via Zoom live interactive video conferencing. A reading schedule will be sent to you prior to week 1.
