Buffs One Read: Humility Chapter Discussion

Join us as we come together as a community to read and celebrate the 2023-2024 Buffs One Read, The Book of Joy.

During this session on October 11 from 12 p.m. - 12:50 p.m., we’ll explore "Humility", the second pillar that the Dalai Lama and the Archbishop offer as a quality necessary to cultivate joy. These two astounding world leaders exemplify humility throughout The Book of Joy. "Humility", according to them, allows us to see our place in the world and to recognize our interdependence with all of humanity. We will discuss the authors’ characterization of humility, including the Archbishop’s claim that it “allows us to celebrate the gifts of others, but it does not mean you have to deny your own gifts or shrink from using them.” Attendees will be invited to explore this concept through activities and discussion.

Please feel welcome to attend whether you’ve read the chapter or not. You may read the chapter in the Libraries ebook or explore a chapter summary in our community course!

This event is a part of a series of guided mindfulness practices and book clubs offered in celebration of 23-24 Buffs One Read, sponsored by the University Libraries, the Renee Crown Wellness Institute, and the Contemplative Resource Center.
