Dear CRC Community,
On behalf of the Professional Development Committee, and the PD OneBook Workgroup, I am pleased to inform you that the OneBook
choice for 2018/2019 is:
The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by Archbishop Desmond Tutu & the Dalai Lama
Description: 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. This book explores a week of conversations between these two giants as they explore the Nature of True Joy and confront each of the Obstacles of Joy—from fear, stress, and anger to grief, illness, and death. They then offer us the Eight Pillars of Joy, which provide the foundation for lasting happiness. Throughout, they include stories, wisdom, and science. Finally, they share their daily Joy Practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives.
Stay tuned for programming and more information regarding OneBook CRC 2018/19!
