You are invited to participate in a group discussion on the nature of happiness and why it matters. We will be reflecting on claims of major philosophers such as Buddha, Plato, Aristotle, and several contemporary thinkers. These discussions will develop your analytical thinking skills, while also engaging your imagination. This will be not only informative, but fun!
