An alternative path to Happiness

ACTION FOR HAPPINESS PRESENTS...
Oliver Burkeman: An alternative path to Happiness
Join us for an inspiring and thought-provoking evening as author and columnist Oliver Burkeman brings his refreshing perspective on how to lead a happy life.
Oliver will share the insights from his new book The Antidote, which explains how facing up to life's difficulties and uncertainties can actually make us happier.
It's a fascinating and counter-intuitive message, combining ancient philosophy, Buddhist wisdom, modern Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and much more.
About Oliver Burkeman
Oliver writes This Column Will Change Your Life in The Guardian, where he regularly investigates social psychology, self-help culture and the science of happiness.
His previous book HELP!: How to Become Slightly Happier and Get a Bit More Done is a witty and thought-provoking exploration of the world of self-help books, which aims to sort out the good ideas from the terrible ones.
- "On practically every page, Oliver Burkeman manages to be both hilarious and thought-provoking - a combination sure to make any reader very happy." — Gretchen Rubin, author, The Happiness Project
- "Addictive, wise and very funny. Burkeman never takes himself too seriously, but the rest of us should." — Tim Harford, author of The Undercover Economist
- "Burkeman proves an excellent guide, separating all the schmaltzy hokum on achieving inner bliss on your lunch break from the modest, but genuinely enlightening research on human happiness" — The Big Issue

This event is raising funds to support the work of Action for Happiness. We want to make it accessible to as many people as possible, so rather than charging a fixed fee we're instead asking you to make a donation. It would be great if you could donate £15, but if you can spare more, or feel unable to give that much, then please give what you feel is appropriate.
All funds raised (beyond the costs of putting on the event) will contribute directly to Action for Happiness' work relating to growing the movement, enabling local action groups and supporting activities relating to happiness and well-being in schools. Action for Happiness is part of the Young Foundation, which is a Registered Charity (274345) in England and Wales.
