Jul 30 “The Book of Joy – Lasting Happiness in a Changing World”

Presented by Raymer Maguire, Gene and Emily Anne Zimmerman

Emily Anne and Gene take on the roles of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, with Raymer as interviewer, Douglas Abrams in a discussion of; The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama’s home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness’s eightieth birthday and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: How do we find joy in the face of life’s inevitable suffering?

They traded intimate stories, teased each other continually, and shared their spiritual practices. By the end of a week filled with laughter and punctuated with tears, these two global heroes had stared into the abyss and despair of our time and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy.
