Secrets of a Happy Life Public Talk | Friday 21 June | 7-8.30pm

Normally we believe that our happy life depends on external conditions, like having the right job, the right partner and the best possessions. In truth, we can only enjoy our external conditions if we have a happy, peaceful mind.

In this public talk, you will learn that the secret to a happy life lies hidden within. This secret is waiting for us to tap into it, whereby we can realise our own potential for stable peace of mind and happiness.
