Talk summary

What kind of world do we want to live in? Shveitta Sharma discusses with BDG Senior Correspondent Justin Whitaker how we must urgently revisit the paradigms that have shaped our present society. The problems that we face - loneliness, extreme economic inequality, social unrest, environmental calamity - have a cause, and Shveitta and Justin reflect on how extreme individualism, greed, and materialism have contributed greatly to these problems. Yet even in materialistic societies like Hong Kong, there are plenty of ways to gain inner enrichment and find authentic meaning and purpose.

Welcome to a new series hosted by School of Happiness founder Shveitta Sharma. A personal development coach and wellbeing advisor based in Hong Kong, Shveitta's "Pulling Focus" takes us on a journey of self-discovery and inner reflection. She shares ideas on cultivating authentic happiness and speaks to guests on a wide variety of subjects about wellbeing, ranging from work to relationships.
