the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu: join the conversation

May 17 @ 5:00 pm - May 19 @ 2:00 pm

… when Desmond Tutu travelled to the Dalai Lama’s home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness’ eightieth birthday, they created a joy-filled account of their encounter…

…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? The Book of Joy is the record of the extraordinary week-long meeting between these two spiritual giants.   Join us to explore their conversations, their birthday celebration, and encounter for ourselves, the “eight pathways to enduring joy” which are the focus of their exploration. How do these eight pathways play out in the fabric of our lives?
