    About Happy Talk (2012)
     
    "Central to Buddhist belief is the alleviation of suffering - with the end result a form of happiness. Central to our founding fathers’ belief was the inalienable right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. But do these two expressions of Enlightened thought mean the same thing? Join us as we explore that theme in this series of on-stage conversations between personalities and experts." - Tim McHenry, Director of Public Programs and Performance
