The Eight Pillars of Joy

Healing Through Cultivating A Relationship With The Divine: Spiritual And Psychotherapeutic Practices To Support Your Ordinary Life

Dr. Robin B. Dilley

The Eight Pillars of Joy, book cover and description.

A Word From The Author

In this little book, I am focusing on a Buddhist teaching called the eight pillars of Joy. I will weave in psychotherapy practices to help you move forward. The 8 Pillars of Joy are:

1. Perspective     

2. Humility     

3. Humor     

4. Acceptance     

5. Forgiveness     

6. Gratitude     

7. Compassion  

8. Generosity

The writing and perspective in this book belong to me, Dr. Robin B. Dilley. However, the ideas, philosophy, and teachings are part of a much bigger and deeper book called The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu with Douglas Abrams.

I saw something in these teachings I wanted to visit and integrate into my daily life in a meaningful way. So, you the reader can go from beginning to end or you can choose the word which intrigues you most and start there.

In this book we’ll look at each word, and make it practical and applicable to your daily life. There will be reflective questions for you to journal your response as well as ritual and prayer exercises you might find useful. These exercises will help you focus on cultivating your relationship with the divine.

The Eight Pillars of Joy is available to buy online internationally from Amazon.
