A founding teacher of the Spirit Rock Meditation Center, a leading Buddhist retreat center in Woodacre, CA, James Baraz has taught insight meditation since 1978. He is co-author of the recently-published "Awakening Joy: 10 Steps That Will Put You on the Road to Real Happiness." The book offers traditional Buddhist teachings on happiness in accessible, contemporary terms, supported by modern neurological research. He created and has taught the highly popular "Awakening Joy" online course since 2003, as well as workshops, retreats and classes in the U.S. and globally. In the foreword to Baraz's recently-published book, Jack Kornfield wrote: "You hold in your hands a book that can change you life -- filled with inspiration and practical wisdom on how to live with more joy and well-being."
