Climbing down the mountain of self

Saturday 12 October, 10am–1pm

If we could only reduce our obsession with our self and our own happiness, we would actually feel happier.  How can we do this? By climbing down the mountain of self and climbing up the mountain of other we are able to see the world from another person’s perspective, and start to understand their needs and wishes. This wish to understanding and cherish others is the real cause of happiness.
