Renowned Author to Speak at Boulder County Center for Judaism

Laya Saul Jackson

I remember searching for answers when I was young. Back in the 1970’s we were tricked into thinking that kids shouldn’t trust anyone over 30 and the answers that I got from the popular books and music misled me,” says Laya Saul Jackson, bestselling author, psychologist, and internationally sought after speaker. “I learned a lot and I want to share tools and tips for getting through the hard times and enjoying life to the fullest. I want to encourage people. Everyone is lovable and everyone is loved. Each and every soul in this world makes a difference!”

Today she lives in Tsfat, Israel, but she lived in the Boulder area for many years before that and became a friend of Chany Scheiner and the Boulder Center for Judaism. She is in town for a short while so the Boulder County Center for Judaism is holding a Lunch and Learn with her as the speaker.

Her bestselling book, “You Don’t Have to Learn Everything the Hard Way: What I Wish Someone Had Told Me” offers practical advice, stories, inspiring quotes, and questions to think and talk about, as well as comfort and strength to those who need it. Participants at her presentations gain real tools to overcome obstacles and leave inspired and uplifted.

She has always been interested in people – and holds a Masters in Applied Psychology, but her understanding of and desire to assist those in pain increased when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).

The Lunch and Learn, Staying Positive During Life’s Challenges, on Tuesday, February 10th from noon to 2:00 pm,  promises to leave attendees with real-time coping tools they can apply immediately to shift to positive possibilities in their own lives, as well as insights from her newest book: “Slice of Life Looking at, Laughing at, and Learning from Multiple Sclerosis.”  There will be a delicious array of kosher soups and salads.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 10th from noon to 2:00 pm

WHERE: Boulder County Center for Judaism, 4900 Sioux Drive, Boulder

COST: $12.00 per person.
