ireside Chat: An Evening in the Happiest Kingdom on Earth

Why is Bhutan called the last Shangri-la?  Are the people who reside in the last Buddhist Kingdom, nestled between the two most populous countries in the world, really happier?

Does their happiness have anything to do with being secluded from the rest of the world for so long, or being unplugged from modern technology? Does it have to do with their commitment to “Gross National Happiness” over GDP?

Join journalist and radio host Lisa Napoli, author of RADIO SHANGRI-LA: What I Learned in Bhutan, the Happiest Kingdom on Earth, and moderator Kitty Boone as they discuss Lisa’s experiences in Bhutan and the emerging scientific and sociological research on what really brings us happiness. 


Tickets ($10) on sale at, The Wheeler Opera House, or by calling (970) 920-5770.
