I hope the Jewish Boston community will take a look at my just-released book, The Three-Petalled Rose.

By examining the common threads that unite three, great spiritual traditions–Judaism, Buddhism, and Stoicism–I provide a framework for achieving a fulfilled and ethically responsible life. No scholarly expertise or special knowledge of religion is required to understand this book, nor need the reader believe in a “supreme being” or owe allegiance to a particular religion. All that’s needed is an open mind and a sincere desire to create an awakened and flourishing life.

More information on the book may found at: 


I hope you enjoy the journey!

Best regards,

Ron Pies
