The year is 2020 and the seasons are shifting in a most unpredictable way. Summer is here, the days are long and unhurried, the sun is warm on our faces. If you are a book lover, reading is the perfect pastime. While we treasure the excitement of rich historical novels, brilliant biographies and exploring the unknown, we also crave a good “how to”. Imagine books that hearten the best of life, both personally and professionally.
For many, time at home has expanded exponentially and through this lens we are able to focus on what really matters. Following a spring with ample time for chores and home improvements, “staycation” is next level. Our holiday destination may be our freshly painted front porch, swaying on a comfy hammock or appreciating the efforts of freshly manicured grass. Wherever our happy place is, now more than ever we seek: more joy, more purpose and more opportunity. So carve out and create a happy space to unwind and relax, linger over literature and gather inspiration and motivation.

The Book of Joy
Two spiritual giants. One timeless question. In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama's home in India, to celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. 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. In this unique collaboration, The Book of Joy offers us a reflection amidst turmoil, to discover a level of peace and courage to live a life brimming with joy.
