Matthieu Ricard, Buddhist monk, humanitarian, photographer, and international best-selling author described by scientists as "the happiest person in the world" joined AHF for our Annual Dinner in San Francisco on Thursday, November 7, 2019.

Matthieu has dedicated his life to the practice of Buddhism and helping people in need in the Himalaya through his organization, Karuna-Shechen. His TED Talks on Altruism and Happiness have collectively been viewed over ten million times. Matthieu fluidly weaves together the traditional and the scientific, and the evening is sure to be filled with wisdom, compassion, and inspiration.
