You are cordially invited to the next TEDxTheHague salon! Our September edition — themed (What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding — is curated by TEDxTheHague regular Norman Lenffer. Norman writes:

"Happiness is something were all aspire to, or even feel that it is a right to be happy. But yet for many people happiness remains an elusive state of mind, something occasionally experienced, but so difficult to find and hold on to. I have an interest to understand what makes us happy, and enjoyed many a long conversation on how to be happy."

We'll explore this theme by watching and discussing the following videos:

Robin Sharma: The 3 Habits of Happiness
Robin Sharma discusses some of the main components of happiness. In less than 4 minutes, he reminds us that gratitude, savouring, and finding meaning in your work will significantly increase the abundance of happiness in your world.

Dan Gilbert: The surprising science of happiness
Dan Gilbert, author of "Stumbling on Happiness," challenges the idea that we’ll be miserable if we don’t get what we want. Our "psychological immune system" lets us feel truly happy even when things don’t go as planned.

Saisha Srivastava: What Nobody Told You About Happiness
Saisha has danced since she was a little girl. In a breath of fresh air that is as inspiring as it is poetic, she talks about growing up and shares stories from teaching dance to blind and visually challenged students, and the startling secret she learnt about happiness along the way.

RSVP if you want to attend
We hope this theme will resonate with you, awaken your curiosity and make you decide to attend TEDxTheHague. To stimulate conversation, we admit up to 25 guests. If you want to be put on our final guest list, please RSVP. First-come, first-served!
