WHY COMPASSION IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS
Wednesday, October 7th, 6 – 7pm
We have been taught that success leads to happiness, and yet there are many people who are considered “successful” who are not happy. This workshop teaches us why compassion is actually the key ingredient for happiness and how we can grow our compassion without burning ourselves out. If you deeply care about others, and yet you struggle to know what to say or do during the most challenging moments in life, you will be happy you showed up for this event.

You’ll leave with knowledge of how generosity affects you, and with a plan to increase generosity in your own life and that of your friends and family.
