Altruism: the best response to the suffering of our times

June 4, 2024 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+1


Join us for a talk by the man dubbed the happiest person in the world. Writer, humanitarian and Buddhist monk, Matthieu Ricard discusses how altruism can be the best response to the suffering of our times.

Matthieu Ricard has closely collaborated with neuroscience research on the short- and long-term effects of mind training on the brain, the immune system and our base line level of wellbeing. He is author of over 20 books, including “Altruism: The Power of Compassion to Change Yourself and the World”. The dialogue with his father in “The Monk and the Philosopher” was a best-seller in Europe and was translated into 21 languages, and “Altruism: How compassion can change your life and the world,” to which he devoted five continuous years of research.
