Dis­cover a ‘kinder, hap­pier life’

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A NEW course to help make Buck­ing­hamshire a hap­pier and more car­ing place is to be held in Che­sham from next month.

A new eight-week course called Ex­plor­ing What Mat­ters will start at The Bagnall Cen­tre, in Water­side, Che­sham, on Tues­day, Septem­ber 23, to help peo­ple dis­cover how to live a hap­pier and kinder life.

The course has been de­vel­oped by Ac­tion for Hap­pi­ness, a UK-based move­ment of peo­ple tak­ing ac­tion for a hap­pier world, which has about 60,000 mem­bers.

The course, which is open to peo­ple of all back­ground, is backed by the Dalai Lama, who said: “As pa­tron of Ac­tion for Hap­pi­ness I’m de­lighted to see the work be­ing done by mem­bers of this move­ment to cre­ate a hap­pier and more car­ing so­ci­ety.”

Sheila Sather and Sonja An­tell, who are lead­ing the course in Che­sham, said: “We are very pleased to be run­ning this course be­cause it is unique in the way it is run by vol­un­teers. Our be­lief is that it will help peo­ple re-think what is im­por­tant in life.”

In Ex­plor­ing What Mat­ters, lo­cal groups meet for eight weeks, with each ses­sion ex­plor­ing a big ques­tion. They start with ‘what re­ally mat­ters in life?’ and then ‘what re­ally makes us happy.’
