Joyous Resilience: Book Talk & Meditation with author Anjuli Sherin

March 6, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PST

Join Eastwind Books of Berkeley online for a book talk and guided meditation with author Anjuli Sherin, hosted by Shivani Narang.
With so much information available on the most effective ways to build resilience—ranging from general tips for better mental health, such as meditation, exercise, time in nature and online hygiene, to the latest statistics and strategies that neuroscience can offer—what keeps people from implementing all this well-meaning advice? Or if you practice these techniques and still find yourself exhausted, irritable, unhappy, anxious or dissatisfied, do you ever wonder what is missing?


Copies of Joyous Resilience: A Path to Individual Healing and Collective Thriving in an Inequitable World are available for order at www.asiabookcenter.com. Choose to ship your orders to your home or select in-store pick up at Eastwind Books of Berkeley, 2066 University Ave., Berkeley, CA 94704.

About the Book:
In this warm and accessible guide, Pakistani American therapist Anjuli Sherin provides a healing path to make thriving possible for everyone. Through compelling client stories and reflective exercises, she offers a culturally informed, body -centered model that shows us how cultivating self-nurturance, healthy boundaries, pleasure, and a soulful connection to the natural world can give us the generative energy needed to heal individual and collective trauma and shape our world from an inner magic called joyous resilience.

With meditations, tools and guides throughout the book, readers will have ample opportunity to reflect on their own unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors and develop their path to joyous resilience.
