"As for the Happiness retreat itself... Words cannot describe it. Literally. I arrived with 25 strangers and left with a deep love of each one of them in their own unique and special way. I was moved to tears, I laughed, I smiled, I worked, I relaxed more deeply than I thought humanly possible. If you are here reading this, then run (don't walk) to the program nearest you and let the next beautiful chapter of your life begin."
