    Andrea F. Polard | Tiferet Talk with Melissa Studdard

    in Writing

    Please join Melissa Studdard and Tiferet Journal on 10/2/13, from 7-7:30 PM EST, for a conversation with author, psychologist, and Zen practitioner, Dr. Andrea F. Polard. Studdard and Polard will discuss Polard’s book, A Unified Theory of Happiness: An East-Meets-West Approach to Fully Loving Your Life, a groundbreaking synthesis of Western thinking and Eastern philosophy.
    Polard started her meditation practice and interest in psychology at age sixteen. Having endured childhood trauma, happiness was on her mind early on, as she wondered whether she and her fellow-sufferers could really be happy. In pursuit of answers, Polard earned two master's degrees in clinical psychology, one from Freie University and another from Ryokan College, where she also earned a doctorate in psychology.
    When Dr. Polard discovered that happiness was indeed possible for all, she decided to share the necessary, consciousness-building skills for it. As writing had long been a passion, she soon started on A Unified Theory of Happiness -- a project that took her twelve devoted years to complete. It is a book that is not only to inform, but delight the reader.
    Dr. Polard is also the founder of the Los Angeles Center for Zen Psychology, which offers Zen psychotherapy, consultations, workshops, training, and meditation groups, based on both Western and Eastern thought.

    Please join Melissa Studdard and Tiferet Journal on 1/09/14, from 7-7:30 PM EST, for a conversation with author, journalist, producer, and talk show host Krista Tippett about her non-fiction works Speaking of Faith and Einstein's God, and her radio program, On Being.


    Speaking of Faith is a memoir of religion in our time and covers Tippett’s move from geopolitical engagement to theology and the cumulative wisdom of her interviews.  Of Speaking of Faith, Elizabeth Gilbert says, "Her intelligence is like a salve for all who have been wounded or marginalized by the God Wars."


    Tippett’s program On Being is currently broadcast on more than 200 public radio stations in the United States and globally via NPR Worldwide, its website, and its podcast. Tippett has described her work with the program as "tracing the intersection between great religious ideas and human experience, between theology and real life."

    Robert Pinsky | Tiferet Talk with Melissa Studdard

    in Writing

    Please join Melissa Studdard and Tiferet Journal on 9/4/13, from 7-7:30 PM EST, 6-6:30 PM CST, for a conversation with fabulous poet, acclaimed literary critic, professor, editor, best-selling translator, and former United States Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky. Studdard and Pinsky will discuss Pinsky’s newly released anthology, Singing School, a joyous collection that “proposes that attention to great poetry is the best path to fresher, more pleasurable writing and reading.” According to scholar and poet Alicia Ostriker, “Singing School is nothing like the usual anthology of safe and sane selections. Instead, it is a gathering of poetry designed to stimulate the young and startle the old practitioner, with a surprise around every corner. Where else might you find Sterling Brown's 'Harlem Happiness' next to Queen Elizabeth I's 'When I Was Fair and Young,' and two poems away from Plath's 'Nick and the Candlestick'? . . . A book that will instruct and charm every reader."
    Pinsky has received numerous awards for his poetry and translations, including the Lenore Marshall Award, the Ambassador Book Award of the English Speaking Union, the PEN/Voelcker Award, the William Carlos Williams Prize, and the Theodore M. Roethke Memorial Poetry Award.  He currently teaches in the graduate writing program at Boston University and serves as the poetry editor for Slate.
