Living the Questions: June 2013

Theme for June: JOY–the practice of cultivating happiness

Questions for contemplation and conversation on your own,
around the dinner table, in your journal, with each other


  • What brings you joy?
  • Have you found practices that help you cultivate happiness instead of despair, fear, apathy, etc.?
  • How do you embrace joy in the midst of suffering in your own life or in the wider world?
  • Do you find differences between joy, happiness, contentment?
  • When have you been surprised by joy or happiness that came from outside your control?
