Event Details

Join us for an inspiring evening with Dr Mark Williamson as he explores the journey to inner fulfilment and shares the practical things we can all do to help create a happier and kinder world.

The people of Manchester have united together and showed real kindness and resilience in the face of adversity recently. Action for Happiness supports these principles and believes they have the power to transform our everyday lives too.

Mark will explore the latest findings from the science of happiness and show how small daily actions can lead to big positive changes for us and others around us. He will be joined by special guest and local kindness-spreader John Magee plus other Manchester-based Action for Happiness supporters.

"Action for Happiness encourages us to put the happiness of others at the centre of our lives. I encourage everyone, whatever their background, to join" ~ Dalai Lama

Mark holds a PhD and an MBA and has a wide range of experience in both business and non-profit worlds. He is also a father of three children, a regular meditator and rather-too-keen road cyclist!
