What is your happiest moment?
 
How can you know it?
 
Do we waste time or does time waste us?
 
Are questions about meaning truly meaningful?
 
What's really important?
 
Drawing on literary and philosophical sources ranging from Alice in Wonderland and The Little Prince to Leo Tolstoy, King Solomon and Friedrich Nietzsche, Haim Shapira invites us to challenge our perspectives on happiness and provides us with alternative ways to appreciate what is important.
 
As Haim concludes it is in the spaces between the possible paths that we might take that we are able to find a place of grace, and where the things that matter to us will light our way.
 
The choice is ours.
 
Join Haim Shapira as he navigates the terrain of happiness - exploring and contemplating an eclectic range of theories and insights into the conflicts we face as we interpret and consider our lives on our journey to creating our own happiness.
