Join Christine Hiester for a contemplative and joy-full study on the wonderful resource The Book of Joy, by the Dalai Lama and Rev. Desmond Tutu. As we come into this new year, hopeful and yet knowing that many of our global and community issues will not miraculously end on January 1st, a purposeful leaning into joy in the midst of hardship might be just what we need.

From the book description:

“In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama’s home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness’s eightieth birthday and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: How do we find joy in the face of life’s inevitable suffering?

They traded intimate stories, teased each other continually, and shared their spiritual practices. By the end of a week filled with laughter and punctuated with tears, these two global heroes had stared into the abyss and despair of our time and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy.

This book offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecendented week together, from the first embrace to the final good-bye.”

Meetings will be through Zoom on Saturday mornings at 10am in January and February. Register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcqfu6tpz8uHNVPKfE8md5g_UiduHZBehB0 and the book will be provided. Contact Christine Hiester for more information.
