Dr Gregory Smith Launches Better Than Happiness

Wed 22 November at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Dr Gregory Smith explains how after a decade living as a recluse in a rainforest he rejoined society and found something Better Than Happiness – contentment. And how you can find contentment too if you just stop trying to be happy.

‘There’s a realm beyond happiness that very few people inhabit. Follow what I’ve done and you may one day enter it. It’s a wonderful place called contentment.’
