Listen to a talk on happiness imbued with deep practical wisdom and experience an invigorating music meditation session and delightful vegan dinner on Thursday 2nd of March, 2017, from 6.30pm at Carrillo Gantner Theatre, Sidney Myer Asia Centre, Melbourne University.

Experiencing more happiness and fulfilment daily within the grind can be a reality. A rare opportunity awaits you to share in an evening of being enriched and energised inside-out.

Devamrita Swami, an international life-coach, author and spiritual teacher, will be delving into the happiness science from contemporary, as well as time-honoured perspectives in his talk "Hiding in Unnatural Happiness". Also included will be mantra meditation, music and sound with embedded potency to soothe and clear the consciousness. Rounding off the evening will be an amazing vegan dinner and the chance to make and mingle with friends.


Devamrita Swami, a New York-born, Yale graduate and monk in the now global Yoga tradition, will draw upon the ancient yoga science and from his new book, "Hiding in Unnatural Happiness", which probes our contemporary approach to fulfilment and progress and recommends another road, which is less travelled but timeless.


"The twenty-first century has set off a gold rush to explain and attain happiness: that elusive subjective state. Do genetics, circumstances and willpower (or the lack of it) limit our attempts at happiness? They need not. Hiding in Unnatural Happiness tells you how. Deftly interweaving the latest research in neuroscience, social science, and psychology, Devamrita Swami shines the beacon of timeless yoga knowledge on the quest for happiness. The conclusion is uplifting: applying appropriate spiritual technology allows every human 100 percent access to genuine happiness and well-being. This nonmaterial technology casts no devastating social or ecological footprint. For individuals and institutions seeking to channel the human drive for fulfilment in a sustainable direction, Hiding In Unnatural Happiness offers indispensable wisdom."
