Barbara J. Linney will discuss her new book
Thursday, October 7 at 6:00 PM
Turn Your Face is about reflecting on your life and finding meaning, renewing your energy, discovering why you listen (or why you don’t), talking well with others, creatively solving problems, planning what you want and striving to get it, giving an honest day’s work and yet not letting work totally consume your life, being cheerful, and giving to others.
Many books tell you what to do but not how to do it. Barbara Linney shows how she and her clients have used what she recommends.
Turn Your Face will help you consider the next step on your journey towards what you want.
“‘Whatever gives you joy, find a way to do it,’ writes Barbara Linney, author of Turn Your Face. This no-nonsense book is packed with good references and straight forward advice on how to live a good life. It touches on ways to communicate, set goals, tap creativity and be productive—and in short how to live a life that results in a deeper spiritual connection and more joy.”
—Debra Moffitt-Leslie, author of 108 Spiritual Practices for Challenging Times (to be published in 2011)
