THE BOOK of JOY: From the Book Cover:

Two spiritual Giants. Five Days. One Timeless Question.

Nobel Peace Prize laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than 50 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.

In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's 80th birthday and create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their lives to answer a question: How do we find joy in the face of suffering?

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 times and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy. We got to listen in as they explore the Nature of True Joy and confront each of the obstacles to Joy. They then offer us the 8 Pillars of Joy, which provide the foundation for lasting happiness. Throughout, they include stories, wisdom, and science. Finally they share the daily Joy Practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives.
