A course backed by the Dalai Lama is being launched in Guernsey to help make people happier.

The eight week course, "Exploring What Matters" will help people discover how to live a more social and kinder life.

It has been developed by Action for Happiness, a UK-based movement which has over 100,000 members.

As patron of Action for Happiness I am delighted to see the work being done by members of this movement to create a happier and more caring society. I wholeheartedly support the Exploring What Matters course and hope that many thousands of people will benefit from it and be inspired to take their own action to help create a happier world

– Dalai Lama

I am really looking forward to some fascinating conversations during this course and hope that it starts some journeys of self-discovery as we explore what really matters for each of us.

– Jon Buckland, Course co-leader

The first session will take place on 17 September at Guernsey Grammar & Sixth Form Centre.
