"Exploring What Matters" begins in Whitchurch

New course to help make Whitchurch a happier and more caring place, backed by the Dalai Lama - a 8-week course proven to leave people happier and more likely to help others.

On Tuesday 24th March 2020, a new course called Exploring What Matters begins in Whitchurch to help people discover how to live a happier and kinder life. The course will run weekly for 8 weeks from 7.30-9.30pm at The Community Suite, Testbourne School, Micheldever Road RG28 7JF. Each session of the course explores a big question. Starting with "What really matters in life?" and then "What really makes us happy?". These are followed by sessions on dealing with adversity, having good relationships, caring for others, and creating happier workplaces and communities. They end with "How can we create a happier world?"
