HAPPINESS COURSE

Holidays come and go. Clothes wear out. Bank accounts go up and down. Through all of this, the desire for happiness is a compass-point.

This course will calibrate your compass, provide a map and refresh your navigation skills.


A prerequisite for enrolment:

Completion of The Wisdom Within Course.

The desire for happiness is hard-wired into human nature because happiness is part of our nature. But something’s blocking the flow.

The Happiness course opens the gate and sets you on your way. It builds on everything that The Wisdom Within introduces and focuses on meeting the perennial need for everyone to find the well-spring of happiness through all of life’s changing circumstances.

" The group learning environment and discussions became my favourite aspect of the course... The theories and awareness exercises gave me enough to ruminate on over the week without flooding my brain with too much new info."
