Sangha Meeting: Sunday, October 8, 2017

dalaitutu 9046

The Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu expressing their joy. (from the back cover of Book of Joy)

 

Meeting information:

Following a transformative sharing, both personal and perceptive, of The Book of Joy last Sunday, we're happy to announce that there will be a follow-up session on Sunday, October 8th! Penelope Burton will lead a discussion of "The Eight Pillars of Joy" which is Days 4 and 5 of the conversation between the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu in The Book of Joy.  Penelope suggests that we read pages 191-275 as well as "Joy Practices," pages 309-348.
 
Here are a few questions to consider as you read:
 
1. Which of the Eight Pillars resonates with you most? (the one you find most easy to actually do)
2. Which of the pillars is most difficult? What gets in the way of inviting the practice into your daily life?
3.How can we support each other in making changes in our daily life to consciously invite more joy?
Thank you, Penelope!
