Event Details


An evening with Matthieu Ricard

Join us for an inspiring and memorable evening with Matthieu Ricard as he shares the insights from his new book Altruism and explains how living more compassionately brings amazing benefits for ourselves, the people around us and the wider world.

Matthieu believes that altruism can answer the biggest challenges of our time: the economy in the short term, life satisfaction in the mid-term, and the environment in the long term.


"Matthieu Ricard is a genius for our times, a rare combination of scientific brilliance with the heart of a saint" ~ Daniel Goleman

About Matthieu Ricard

Matthieu Ricard is a Buddhist monk, author, translator and photographer who has lived in the Himalayan region for over forty years. He was born in France and has a PhD in cell genetics but left the world of research to focus on Buddhist practices, living in India, Bhutan, and Nepal and studying with some of the greatest Buddhist teachers.

Matthieu has served as the French interpreter for the Dalai Lama since 1989. He is a board member of the Mind and Life Institute, an organization dedicated to collaborative research between scientists and Buddhist scholars and meditators. He is engaged in research on the effect of mind training and meditation on the brain at universities around the world.

Matthieu is the author of several books including The Monk and the Philosopher, The Quantum and the Lotus, Happiness and The Art of Meditation. He donates proceeds from his books and much of his time to 
Himalayan humanitarian projects.

This event is in support of Action for Happiness. We want to make it accessible to as many people as possible, so rather than charging a fixed fee we're instead asking you to make a donation. It would be great if you could donate £15, but if you can spare more, or feel unable to give that much, then please give what you feel is appropriate.

Any funds raised (beyond the costs of putting on the event) will contribute directly to Action for Happiness' work relating to growing the movement and supporting local action groups relating to happiness and well-being. Action for Happiness is part of the Young Foundation, which is a Registered Charity (274345) in England and Wales.

Any questions about the event please contact

We look forward to seeing you there!
