"This current period of forced quarantene gives us the occasion to appreciate the importance of the small things in our lives. This book is a dialogue which goes through several fundamental topics of our society (from literature to gastronomy and politics), celebrating slowness as key to efficiency, wisdom and happiness.
Carlo Petrini (Bra, Italy, 1949) is the founder of the international Slow Food movement, an organization that strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and encourages farming of plants, seeds and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem. In October 2004, he founded the University of Gastronomic Sciences, devoted to new gastronomists and Innovators of sustainable Food Systems.
Luis Sepúlveda (1949-2020) was a writer and journalist. Politically active in his country, he was jailed for two-and-a-half years and lately forced to exile. He travelled around the world and worked as a reporter for Greenpeace, based in Hamburg, Germany. Renowed author of novels and books, recently died of coronavirus in Spain."
THE BOOK OF JOY, LASTING HAPPINESS IN A CHANGING WORLD,
DALAI LAMA & DESMOND TUTU
Two great spiritual masters share their own hard-won wisdom about living with joy even in the face of adversity.
The occasion was a big birthday. And it inspired two close friends to get together in Dharamsala for a talk about something very important to them. The friends were His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The subject was joy. Both winners of the Nobel Prize, both great spiritual masters and moral leaders of our time, they are also known for being among the most infectiously happy people on the planet.
Both the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu have been tested by great personal and national adversity, and here they share their personal stories of struggle and renewal. Now that they are both in their 80s, they especially want to spread the core message that to have joy yourself, you must bring joy to others.
Most of all, during that landmark week in Dharamsala, they demonstrated by their own exuberance, compassion, and humor how joy can be transformed from a fleeting emotion into an enduring way of life.
