It is a practical guide to developing a light, positive attitude – showing how to recognize and abandon states of mind that harm us, and to cultivate peaceful, positive states of mind that bring us happiness.

You’ll be able to use the insight you gain from the course to be happier, and to improve your life and the lives of others.
