One Final Mission...

Two of the most revered global icons are on a mission to bring joy to a troubled world.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu are joining forces one last time to share ancient wisdom and cutting edge neuroscience that shows us exactly how we can each access more joy, no matter our circumstances. And just in time, during these dark and divided days.

mission: joy

Mission: JOY includes the book, the film, and the impact campaign that are all aimed at bringing the messages of the self-described ‘mischievous brothers’ to as many people as possible:
Joy is an inside job.
There are simple, scientifically proven things each of us can do to access more joy.
