After the year and a half we just had, how do we find happiness? How do we, a generation more overloaded with information and emotional stimuli than ever, go about living lives of goodness and joy? To unpack this, Rabbi Lamm speaks with bestselling author, and internationally renowned expert on Happiness Studies, Tal Ben Shahar.
In this fascinating, wide ranging conversation they talk about the relationship between Happiness and Goodness, the evolution of education, what we can learn from the Books of Genesis and Exodus, why you might feel the urge to flip someone off if they cut you off in traffic, the importance of gratitude, the mind vs. body problem, and the joys of getting coffee!
