How to Wake Up: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide to Navigating Joy

Intimately and without jargon, How to Wake Up: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide to Navigating Joy and Sorrow, describes the path to peace amid all of life’s ups and downs. Using step by step instructions, the author illustrates how to be fully present in the moment without clinging to joy or resisting sorrow. This opens the door to a kind of wellness that goes beyond circumstances. Actively engaging life as it is in this fashion holds the potential for awakening to a peace and well-being that are not dependent on whether a particular experience is joyful or sorrowful. This is a practical book, containing dozens of exercises and practices, all of which are illustrated with easy-to-relate to personal stories from the author’s experience.

Wonder and Delight: A Dolph Gotelli Christmas

Overview Designer and collector Dolph Gotelli creates wondrous Christmas displays by combining his various collections into exquisite celebratory installations. Inspired by his international travel, a Neapolitan crèche is flanked by a jeweled textile from Rajasthan, a Mexican angel is surrounded by Chinese paper garlands, and Christmas trees are adorned with German ornaments and Victorian ephemera. Gotelli's whimsical designs are presented in a series of creative tablescapes documented from assorted installations. In his design for a fantasy tea party at the Filoli Mansion near San Francisco, the entire tabletop, frosted like a cake, displayed a wonderful variety of confections, including a sugarplum fairy alighting next to a glass-domed gingerbread castle. The china teacups and dessert plates, complete with the image of Santa, were set among trees composed of every imaginable candy, chocolate molded figures, and lollipops. This spectacular chronicle of Gotelli’s work would be welcome under any Christmas tree.
