What You’ll Learn During the 2022 Global Joy Summit

Join us and 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 not simply a whimsical emotion, but 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 (see speaker list & schedule below).

“You see, usually everybody seeks happiness – joyfulness – but from the outside. From money, from power, from big car, from big house, ultimate source of happy life – even physical health – inside not outside.” – His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Global Joy Summit 2022 Themes & Topics

Feeling the pain of the world and recognizing how many are struggling with isolation and despair, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu decided to act. They joined forces for one final mission: to show us how to live with more JOY even in deeply troubled times.

Their timely and humorous wisdom remind us that Joy is an inside job, that Joy and sorrow are inseparable, and that one of Joy’s secrets is deep connection with others.

Through the summit we’ll explore:

  • A special Keynote with His Holiness the Dalai Lama
  • Practices to transform stress, anxiety, grief, depression, despair, isolation, challenging emotions and difficulty; and cultivate well-being, connection, love, compassion and Joy
  • The latest scientific insights on Joy and Happiness
  • 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
  • Christian perspectives on Love and Joy
  • Buddhist perspectives on how to experience Unconditional Joy as an innate quality of mind
  • Live interactive workshops and musical performances to connect and celebrate as a global community
  • 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 20+. Join the celebration and exploration. UNITE for Joy!
