These photos are from the VIP Book Launch Party for Simple Recipes for Joy that was held at the Jivamukti Yoga School NYC on September 16, 2014. Celebrity appearances included Sting, Krishna Das, Crazy Sexy Lifestyle guru Kris Carr, author Daniel Pinchbeck, Mad Magazine editor Joe Raiola, violinist Tim Fain, Origin Magazine editor Maranda Pleasant, photographers Guzman, and more.
Sharon Gannon, David Life & Tim Fain opened the event with a performance that brought the Mad Hatter Tea Party photograph on the cover of the book to life (see video below). The Jivamuktea Café and the Cookie Devi provided sweet and savory treats made from the cookbook. Sharon signed many books and a lovely evening was enjoyed by all.
