The Center for Consciousness and Transformation (CCT) will host three free screenings of the 75-minute independent film “Happy” followed by a Q&A with director Roko Belic.

“Happy” is a documentary that leads viewers on a journey across five continents in search of the keys to happiness. The film addresses many of the fundamental issues we face in today’s society: How do we balance the allure of money, fame and social status with our needs for strong relationships, health and personal fulfillment? Through remarkable human stories and cutting-edge science, “Happy” leads us toward a deeper understanding of why and how we can pursue more fulfilling, healthier and happier lives.
