Happiness

The experience of contentment and joy, untainted by futile aspirations

We curate learning sessions on happiness for corporates and educational institutes that range from half a day to 3 days. We find that it has become essential for each of us to exercise discretion in the choices we make to be happier. Especially now, when our media is constantly convincing us to partake in consumerism and find joy in our ability to buy things we don’t need.

Our workshops facilitate self reflection and habit building towards a more meaningful and content life.

Our workshops draw from the rich heritage of India on the concept of Anand and the latest scientific discoveries.

Happiness sessions in Auroville

Happiness is an important aspect of our lives. We are all seeking happiness. We are striving to earn more money. We are spending more to lead better lifestyles. We are consuming more day after day but are we really becoming happier? Our goals are often not sync in with the tiny habits that dwell deep within us. It is here that the key to altering our actions favourably lies.

We endeavour to kindle young minds through platforms like Swadharma, a month long self discovery course in Auroville, to discover the concept of Happiness.
