A talk by Don Handrick based on “The Book of Joy” by His holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Monday 22nd October 2018 7pm – 9pm
Friends Meeting House, Friargate, York, YO1 9RL Suggested donation £5/£3
In The Book of Joy, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu discuss "true joy", which is a deeper and more dependable way of being that can be sustained and aid us through the many challenges of our lives. Here they outline the eight pillars or qualities that are needed to cultivate true joy.
This talk by Don will discuss how to incorporate these eight qualities into our daily life. Don is the resident teacher at the Thubten Norbu Ling Buddhist Center, New Mexico that is affiliated to the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).
