Event Details


Discovering Happiness

Join us for an interactive and inspiring evening with Mark Williamson as he shows us how refocusing our attention has the power to transform our lives.

Our attention is one of our most powerful assets. Yet we often feel unable to control what's on our minds - and find ourselves struggling with worries and fears, information overload or the general feeling that our lives are out of control.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Combining mindfulness principles with the latest ideas from positive psychology, Mark will introduce five simple ways of re-focusing our attention which have the potential to transform our day-to-day experience of life.

"It was amazing to learn useful small tools that can change our lives" (Ali)

"I really enjoyed the interactive nature of the event" (Matt)

"It was great to focus on being in the moment and all the things we can find here and now that make us happy" (Lizzy)

"I loved it! Left feeling really inspired" (Ruth)
