Why was this community set up?
Since we live in a world driven primarily by money, celebrity, and material success, it’s easy to overlook the importance of inner work on our happiness.
As a result, many people have fallen into the trap of seeking happiness externally—in the next business deal, relationship, degree, iPhone, or whatever carrot society dangles in front of us as the thing we need to be fulfilled.
A Happiness Insider ® is no stranger to the external road to happiness rollercoaster. We’ve ridden it many times. And after exhaustive research, we’ve concluded that the key to happiness is not found in more external achievements. We know from our daily inner work that lasting happiness is found within, and that we must carve out the time to cultivate it. And having a supportive community and accountability is one of the keys to our consistency.
We can all live in the Garden of Eden. But we must plant it for ourselves.
— Ancient Vedic Proverb
Happiness Insiders ® are willing to put in the work to cultivate inner happiness, through learning, practicing, and inspiring one another along our individual spiritual paths. We’re more interested in results than in dogma or blind faith or cultish behavior or confusing esoteric methodologies. We crave simplicity and consistency. We honor our inner guidance, and strive for self-sufficiency along our path.
Happiness Insiders ® are not monks! We are naturally drawn to family life, passions, purpose, dream jobs, hobbies, and other worldly pursuits. But we make a point to prioritize our inner work, because we appreciate the positive impact that our inner work can make on all other aspects of life that we love and cherish.
In other words...
We don’t do inner work just to brag about how good we are at inner work. We use it as a means to become a better version of ourself.
The Happiness Insiders ® is the world’s first secular online community for learning a variety of practical, real-world spiritual practices that are intended to help you create the lasting happiness you ultimately desire.

”It is difficult to find happiness within oneself, but it is impossible to find it anywhere else.“
— Arthur Schopenhauer

YOU SUSPECT THAT HAPPINESS IS WITHIN and you’ve exhausted the search for happiness through external achievements and acquisitions
