what the book is about: two spiritual icons, spending five days together, and pondering one timeless question: how do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering?
reason why it is your top pick for
this summer: this book is a unique opportunity
to listen in on the conversation, reflection, and insights shared between the
dalai lama and archbishop desmond tutu during their special, one-time visit
together. in april 2015, archbishop tutu traveled to the dalai lama's home in
dharamsala, india, to celebrate his holiness's 80th birthday and to create this
collaborative book, which they hoped would be a wonderful gift for present and
future generations to come. they looked back on their long lives to answer one
single question: how do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering?
they explore the nature & definition of true joy and confront each of the
potential obstacles of joy (i.e. fear, stress, anger, grief, illness, death).
they also share the “eight pillars of joy” which provide the foundation for
long-lasting happiness, which i believe is something we could all use!
throughout the book, they offer stories, wisdom, and science. finally, they
share their daily “joy practices” that anchor their very own emotional and
spiritual lives and journeys if you’re looking for a book that provides
enrichment and nourishment for the mind, body, and soul – this one is for you!
