January 16: James Baraz, author of Awakening Joy

Time Tested Books is pleased to host author and teacher James Baraz for a reading and signing of his first book, Awakening Joy: 10 Steps That Will Put You on the Road to Real Happiness (Bantam).

In Awakening Joy, James Baraz and co-author Shoshanna Alexander use the curriculum of Baraz's popular “Awakening Joy” course as the basis for a practical guide to reorienting the mind away from dissatisfaction and distraction and toward the contentment and delight that is abundantly available in our everyday lives. Grounded in Buddhist principles--though accessible to people of all faiths, or no faith at all--and filled with engaging exercises and advice on how to make happiness your natural default setting, the book takes you step-by-step through cultivating behaviors and attitudes that bring well-being into your life. With a foreword by Jack Kornfield and advance praise from Marci Shimoff, Angeles Arrien, Rick Hanson and many more, Awakening Joy is a groundbreaking and extremely useful new book.

James Baraz is a co-founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center and has been a renowned meditation teacher for over 30 years. Thousands of people have participated in his "Awakening Joy" course since it began in 2003.

The event is on Saturday, January 16, at 7:00pm, and admission is free.
