1-Day HAPPINESS workshop with Mark Sham (JHB Edition)

Sat Nov 21, 09:00 - Sat Nov 21, 14:00
Jackson's Real Food Market & Eatery (Bryanston)



For most of 2020, I have been presenting a 1-hour talk about HAPPINESS and the response has been overwhelming. With this in mind, I decided to take things further and create a comprehensive 1-day workshop centred around the topic of HAPPINESS. We have just completed our first edition of this workshop in Johannesburg, and we got such an amazing response that we decided to host one more workshop before the end of 2020.

My goal is to move away from speaking about the science of HAPPINESS, and move toward the practice of HAPPINESS. By hosting this session over a full day, we can really dive into the details of HAPPINESS, and we can actually practice several techniques on the day.

This 1-day HAPPINESS workshop will be taking place on the rooftop of Jackson's Real Food & Eatery on Saturday, 21 November from 09h00 to 14h00. The aim is to host a fully interactive, and immersive HAPPINESS experience. And the goal is for you to walk away with a very practical guide on how to be more HAPPY across various aspects of your life.


Well, let's flip that question on its head. For the longest time, we've been wondering why more people don't study HAPPINESS? Most adults will attend various forms of training for almost every aspect of life but HAPPINESS. So we think there are many reasons why it makes sense to attend a full day event where the sole focus is to work out how to become a happier version of yourself.

On one end, the data and research says that people are becoming less happy as time goes on. Our belief is that this is happening because people haven't been taught to deal with the rich complexity of the world that we currently live in.

Thanks to technology, the world has more abundance than ever before, and thanks to medical science, people can live longer than ever. Yet more people die from drug and opioid abuse than ever before, and even worse, more people are committing suicide than at any other time in recorded history!

This begs the following questions:

  • Why isn’t happiness a compulsory subject from 1st grade all the way through to graduation? Isn’t happiness something that almost every human being strives toward throughout their life?

  • Why isn’t "relationships with others" a compulsory subject throughout the schooling years? Don’t we all have to co-exist and live with others in every facet of our lives? Why don’t we learn how human beings are different from each other from a mental, emotional, and cultural point of view?

  • Why isn’t "psychology of self" a compulsory subject? We spend our entire lives having a conversation with that little voice inside our heads. Maybe it’s time we taught young people how to tame the monkey mind from a young age.
