On Tuesday 30th January the Network of Wellbeing (NOW) hosted a free webinar called Happier Self, Happier World with Museum of Happiness Co-Founder Shamash Alidina. The webinar explored themes of self-compassion, mindfulness and 'kindfulness'. You can watch the full video below.
Building Wellbeing Together webinar series
This webinar was the first in a NOW series of free online events, launched following the success of our Building Wellbeing Together Weekend. The intention of the series is to help a wider audience to build wellbeing - in their own lives, in their communities and in the wider world - through hearing the wisdom and experiences of those working actively on happiness and wellbeing. Plus, we hope to raise awareness of - and build stronger connections between - all of the amazing people and organisations working on these topics, too.
