This Life Is Joy
is an extraordinary new book by one of the most admired spiritual teachers in the country. In this book, Dr. Roger Teel shows us how every moment, experience, and person can be an opening for our soul. Separated into three easy-to-use parts, this book will:
 
  • Tell a fable that puts our spiritual journey into context 
  • Discuss the seven spiritual principles that are universal to the world’s wisdom traditions

Filled with advice that can come only from a lifetime of practicing these traditions, this book will be an indispensable guide to people who want more from their lives.

“Since antiquity, wisdom teachers have guided the seeker inward because it is only there that the authentic joy of a life truly worth living can be found.  The skill lies in actualizing that joy, bringing it from the center of our being to the surface of our everyday lives. Roger Teel is, without a doubt, one of the greatest spiritual teachers and storytellers of our time; he understands the sacred connection between the heart and the head, the inner and the outer, the soul and the body…and the importance of integrating them as one. As you read This Life is Joy, know you have hired a master guide you can trust to show you the way to the joy-filled life you so richly deserve.”

“When, in our ongoing quest for a better life, one finds themself seeking clarity, direction or understanding, this wonderful book This Life is Joy is the book to pick up. In this marvelous book, Roger Teel encapsulates, articulates, and describes not only the issues and the core of the missing pieces to live more powerfully, lovingly, and happily, but also the practice and processes required to overcome one’s innate reticence to living in joy.  This book is destined to become a spiritual classic for its ability not only to awaken the individual, but also to provide a descriptive and clear pathway for rising above the sleepy ennui of a life half lived. Roger Teel has found a way to bring his own balance, wisdom, and deep connection with life to form in this marvelous expression of life.

 —Rev. Dr. Kenn Gordon, Spiritual Leader for Centers for Spiritual Living
 
“Dr. Roger Teel has a beautiful, down-to-earth style of speaking and connecting with his audience in an easy, intimate way. His words in This Life Is Joy do the same. He invites me, the reader, into an adventure of personal discovery, but with the confidence that someone who has already done the work is going to travel with me by means of the pages in the book. Sincerity and thoughtfulness seep out of the words and the call to find a way to serve and care for others reminds the reader of Dr. Teel’s central message—that there is no other action that establishes us in love more powerfully or reliably than that of heartfelt giving to others.”
—Edward Viljoen, author of The Power of Meditation
 
“This is not just another book on spirituality. This is an infusion of vision, hope, and reality. I found myself growing with every word. Roger Teel translates spiritual concepts you may have heard, and turns them into an excitement and comfort you feel in your bloodstream. Inhale this book and you will inhale a life that finally makes sense on every level.”
—Tama Kieves, author of Inspired & Unstoppable
 
“No easy feat to simultaneously engage both veteran seekers and those first dawning to their own light, but that is exactly what Roger Teel does here. His story-wisdom-telling technique invites readers to absorb their healing whole—like oxygen—or parse it out as a lifestyle technology by which process delivers result. Ultimately, Teel weaves sense out of the false dichotomy between ‘life in the world,’ and inner peace by gently unraveling their connection at the core. Not only does this book hand over the keys to a successful life, it does so by tapping the spiritual courage to redefine altogether what that means.”
—Dr. Barbara E. Fields, Executive Director at the Association for Global New Thought and Program Director for Parliament of the World’s Religions Centennial Celebration, Synthesis Dialogues, and Gandhi King Season for Nonviolence
 
“With such clearly delineated expressions of Spiritual Principle, Dr. Roger Teel brings forth an instant classic to the realm of New Thought writing. Each of his Seven Pillars of Truth and Nine Portals of Transformation provides greater understanding of the quintessential elements that exist within a meaningful and fulfilling life. What a joyous journey!”
—Dr. John  B. Waterhouse, President of Centers for Spiritual Living
 
“This powerful jewel of a guide for heart-centered living is a precious tool for each of us. It invites us—with intensely-moving stories and life-changing spiritual principles—to live that perfect life of joy here and now.  Read it and you will be changed at depth.”
—Edwene Gaines, author of The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity
 
“Happiness, peace, and joy are spiritual concepts—and attainable. In this book, Roger Teel does a brilliant job in providing a gentle hand-on-your shoulder road map. The truths and strategies outlined in this book are both simple and profound. Do not just read this book—put these principles into practice and you will attain everlasting peace and joy.”
—Azim N. Khamisa
