"Project Happiness" Comes To Town Tonight

The Methodist Church is hosting a viewing of this documentary — teens and parents are especially invited.


How can we be happy in life? What is happiness? A documentary film exploring just those issues is being shown tonight at the EG United Methodist Church and includes a question and answer session with the film's producer.

The event will benefit Gateway Health Services and Friends Way (bereavement services for Rhode Island children).

In this award-winning documentary, youth from three continents interview George Lucas, Richard Gere and neuroscientist Richard Davidson on the nature of lasting happiness. Then, they travel to India for an unforgettable private audience with the XIV Dalai Lama. Through their eyes, audience members gain a new perspective on how to expand your happiness and live a meaningful life. Greater happiness is possible now.

After the film, Project Happiness creator Randy Taran will be on hand for a Q&A discussion on the nature of lasting happiness.

Bring your teens and your friends! A suggested donation of $10 is requested. From 7 to 9 p.m.

Unfortunately, if you are reading this today you missed this amazing event as it was last night. 200 plus people came out to see this award winning film and ask questions of the projects director Brian Rusch. The universal message of love and compassion is the answer to many of the questions we have regarding happiness. This film is the journey of three different groups of teens from three continents, on a quest to conquer sadness, depression and a feeling of loss. We hope to have a future screening in the area.
