Join Zoom Meeting:

NEW PASSWORD REQUIRED: 4J0BRE (copy and paste OR note: that's a zero after the J, not a letter O)

To join online:

  1. If you haven't used Zoom before, you'll need to download the free Zoom software (or app, if you're on a smartphone or tablet). It's called "Zoom Client for Meetings." It would be a good idea to download it in advance here. (You can find where to download the mobile apps here too - just scroll down a bit.) On your computer, find "Zoom.pkg" (or something similar, like "Zoom.exe") in your downloads and double-click it to install the application.
  2. Join here. You'll be prompted to open (or download) Zoom. Depending on your browser, you may see a message asking if you'd like to allow the browser to open the link in Zoom - choose "allow" or "open." Enter your name and your email address when prompted. We'll go live right at 10:30  a.m. Central Time.
  3. Please mute your microphone on the lower left portion of your screen (you may have to hover your cursor to see the option).
  4. If you experience difficulties with the link in step 2, you can also go here https://zoom.us/join and enter the password: 4J0BRE
  5. Once there, if you are a bit early, just wait!
  6. Optional: once the live stream begins, you will see an icon toward the bottom that says "chat." If you'd like to participate in the chat, click on the chat icon, and the chat box will appear on the right side of your screen. Select "Everyone (in meeting)" to make your comments visible to everyone participating. PLEASE NOTE: Limited to first 100 participants. So that those wishing to particapte at a later time may do so, sessions may be recorded


With its unique combination of storytelling interviews, memoir, and activities, Full Heart Living: Conversations with the Happiest People I Know is as fun and engaging as it is relatable and practical. Pulling himself out of darker times, the author’s vulnerability touches the soul, and the lessons learned make complex ideas simple and doable.

Beyond happiness, this book reveals how to live, with your arms outstretched and your heart wide open. Each delicious chapter concludes with a summary of key points and optional activities that bring the concepts immediately to life.

As intimate as sitting down to coffee with your best friend and as instructional as attending your favorite instructor’s class, this book is a profound reflection on how to live fully with joy and meaning.
