Tools & Techniques for a happier life


Happiness is important. It's important for your own life satisfaction and enjoyment. And it is equally important for your family, the people in your care and the people you work with.

 

Over the past 10 years, Happiness & Its Causes has been a forum for exploring the many and varied causes for a happy and fulfilling life. We present the world's brightest minds in psychology, science, education, business, religion and the arts and package it into an unforgettable two days. Join us in 2015 for an incredible exploration of human potential!
