This is an amazing opportunity to be inspired by the contagious joy and timely message of the Dalai Lama and the late, great Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and learn from 30+ renowned joy scientists, spiritual teachers, changemakers, and artists.
The lived experiences of these two global icons, and self-described “mischievous brothers,” serve as a profound example of the power of joy in the face of adversity. They teach us that joy is an essential key to meeting the many ordinary and profound challenges we now face, individually and collectively.
The summit will include a free screening of Mission: JOY—the laugh-out-loud funny documentary that shares the magical friendship, practical wisdom, and historic final in-person meeting of the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu—as well as inspiring and practical sessions with 30+ speakers.
The summit will explore:
Practices to transform stress, anxiety, grief, depression, despair, isolation, challenging emotions, and difficulty
Practical tools to cultivate well-being, connection, love, compassion, and joy
The relationship between joy and sorrow (they’re not opposites)
Joy as a “clean fuel” to power transformative action
Ubuntu, interconnection, and compassion as essential keys to healing our planet and creating a good future
A special keynote with His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Live interactive workshops and musical performances
More than ever, the world needs each of us to tap into the innate love, compassion, and joy that the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu remind us are at the core of our beings.
Come for one session or all and join the celebration and exploration.

In the New Year: May we hold lovingly in our thoughts those who suffer from tyranny, subjection, cruelty, and injustice, and work every day toward the alleviation of their suffering. May we recognize our solidarity with the stranger, outcast, downtrodden, abused, and deprived, that no human being be treated as "other," that our common humanity weaves us together in one fabric of mutuality, one garment of destiny. May we pursue the Biblical prophet's vision of peace, that we might live harmoniously with each other and side by side, respecting differences, cherishing diversity, with no one exploiting the weak, each living without fear of the other, each revering Divinity in every human soul. May we struggle against institutional injustice, free those from oppression and contempt, act with purity of heart and mind, despising none, defrauding none, hating none, cherishing all, honoring every child of God, every creature of the earth. May the Jewish people, the state of Isra
