Sometimes we need to get back in touch with our essential selves to experience joy. The Joy Book is an inspirational celebration of the sublime and mysterious energy of Joy ~ an energy more infinite than reason and beyond any conversation the mind alone could have. To experience joy, we attend with all of our senses to the delicious, radiant, loving essence of being. This is the joy the soul knows and of which the mind can only grasp a small portion. Beyond that portion, there remains the heart’s portion, the body’s portion and the spirit’s portion. Each is present in the fullness of now, calling to us, beckoning, inviting us to life.
Perfect for a cozy afternoon retreat, or to jump-start your own exploration into the subject of JOY, these pages dance with poetry, prose, illustrations, and a wealth of quotations that will leave you uplifted, re-assured and totally inspired.
"I discovered the Joy Book when I was struggling to access greater joy in my daily life. Ingrid Goff-Maidoff's perfectly penned words invited me into a new understanding of joy, one that honored my unfolding self. Each day my heart opened, expanded because of the prose, insights, and artfully arranged illustrations within. It felt like an adventure into parts of myself I'd not explored before. I will always treasure this book. It changed my life." ~Janice Lynne Lundy, author, Your Truest Self: Embracing the Woman You Are Meant to Be
"The Joy Book is a treasure to behold. When reading this collection of poetry and prose, my heart opens to be more present in my life. I've even taken to coloring the black and white illustrations on my favorite pages to keep me there a little longer." ~MJ Bindu Delekta, Sacred Circle of Yoga
