The key to happiness is with you everyday. Where is it? It’s in your own mind…and in your own heart.

Our potential for joy and great meaning is astounding. And tapping into it is not at all difficult. All we need to do is cultivate the compassion, generosity and wisdom that is already present in our mind. In this series, Kadam Morten will guide us – through teachings and meditations – in methods that help us connect with these inner sources of happiness.

Everyone welcome.
