'I want to wish all of you joy—because there is no better gift. Two spiritual masters, the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, share their wisdom in this uplifting book. I promise you, it’s the best $26 you can spend.' Oprah Winfrey Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than fifty 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 travelled to the Dalai Lama’s home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness’s eightieth birthday and to create this book as 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 times and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy. This book offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecedented week together, from the first embrace to the final goodbye.

"No dark fate determines the future. We do. Each day and each moment, we are able to create and re-create our lives and the very quality of human life on our planet. This is the power we wield." "Sadly, many of the things that undermine our joy and happiness we create ourselves. Often it comes from the negative tendencies of the mind, emotional reactivity, or from our inability to appreciate and utilize the resources that exist within us." "The suffering from a natural disaster we cannot control, but the suffering from our daily disasters we can. We create most of our suffering, so it should be logical that we also have the ability to create more joy. It simply depends on the attitudes, the perspectives, and the reactions we bring to situations and to our relationships with other people." "Materialistic values cannot give us peace of mind. So we really need to focus on our inner values, our true humanity. Only this way can we have peace of mind- and more peace in our world. A lot of the problems we are facing are our own creation, like war and violence. Unlike a natural disaster, these problems are created by humans ourselves." What Will You Learn from Reading the Book? How to attain joy even when you're suffering We create our suffering, so we can create joy too Don't judge yourself too harshly when you feel negative emotions It's not possible to survive alone because we are created to co-exist Materialistic things can never give you joy, so we must focus on our inner values Forgiveness doesn't mean that you'll tolerate negative actions Fight against injustice but learn to forgive the offender A self-centered attitude will lead to more suffering ***Don't miss this rare glimpse into the wisdom of His Holiness, the Dalai Lama and Archbiship Desmond Tutu. "The Book of Joy" tells you how to achieve lasting happiness in a changing world. No one can deny the wisdom of these two spiritual giants. Learn their secrets for how you can find the happiness you have been missing in your life.*** Book Summary Overview In "The Book of Joy," his Holiness, the Dalai Lama, and the Archbishop Desmond Tutu talk about how true joy is essential for our lives. They highlight several ways where we can embrace joy and find a purpose. Although they both suffered depressing times in exile, they experience greater joy and affirm the truth about the relationship between profound joy and sadness with amazing clarity. There are various obstacles such as fear, adversity, and anger that deprive us of being joyful, but if one utilizes the eight pillars - humility, perspective, humor, forgiveness, compassion, acceptance, gratitude, and generosity - then it is possible to embrace joy.

Sex in a loving relationship can be the deepest and most meaningful experience a couple can share. And yet many couples find themselves too time-starved and intimacy-shy to enjoy it to the full. Loving Sex helps couples to overcome these barriers with advice from a renowned sexual health counselor. Loving Sex offers a friendly, frank exploration of what sex means as part of a loving relationship, and how you and your partner can experience it to its full potential. Free from unrealistic media representations of perfect bodies and porn-star practices, Loving Sex shows you the positions that work, helps resolve common problems without blame or embarrassment, and explains just how important sex can be to long-term loving happiness. Each of the 11 chapters explores a different aspect of sexuality, from the anatomy and physicality of arousal and orgasm, to the psychology of lust, love, and partnership. Candid explanations of sexual practices and positions are supported by photography and illustrations, allowing couples to relish foreplay, explore new positions and techniques, and experiment with exotic practices, from dressing up to Tantra. The final chapters offer tips on safer sex, and explore the ways in which an enduring sexual relationship can be the foundation for a lifetime of loving intimacy.
