Movie Night: Project Happiness

Happiness is a universal quest. But what does it really mean? In this award-winning documentary, youth from three continents interview George Lucas, Richard Gere and neuroscientist Richard Davidson on the nature of lasting happiness. Then, they travel to India for an unforgettable private audience with the XIV Dalai Lama. Through their eyes, gain a new perspective on how to expand happiness and live a meaningful life. Authentic happiness is not only possible – it’s closer than you think.

“Too much anger, too much hatred. Affection, compassion, the sense of community, honesty, truthfulness—these are the key elements to counter mental unhappiness.” — XIV Dalai Lama

“It really has to do with taking care of other people, and doing things for others rather than yourself.” — George Lucas

“The reality is, we can change. We can change ourselves. We can change our minds. We can change our hearts… and therefore the Universe changes.” — Richard Gere

Snacks and drinks provided.

    I agree, I love the sense of community and having a community and the feeling of waking with honesty in my mind, and the freedom of truthfulness is like nothing else imaginable. I would love to meet the Dalai Lama....
