We all strive to find meaning and happiness in our lives, but it’s hard to agree on what that means. 

What does a meaningful life look like? How do we know when we have found success?

Is happiness prosperity and the perfect job, or a white picket fence, or a large group of friends, or service to others, or the money to travel, or life-affirming spirituality, or something else altogether?

Join us for a thoughtful conversation with panelists who have thought and written about these questions and have themselves lived lives of exploration, service and meaning.
