It will work out eventually"

Happietaria Wageningen

The 11th edition of Happietaria Wageningen is coming up. From March 25 to April 24 we hope to raise money for a project in Syria. The aim of this project is rebuilding agriculture in Syria, the project is supervised by Tear in collaboration with a local NGO. the support will consist out of materials and seeds, which the farmers could use on their fields. Normally we would raise money with a pop-up restaurant that runs on volunteers.

This year it is different than usual and we probably will not be able to open a restaurant, so we will be offering warm-up meals and meal boxes. The meal box is a box with ingredients to put a Happiness-worthy dish on the table at home. We hope to see you at Dreijenplein 4 as a guest, customer or volunteer. For more information, go to

Unlike a normal study class, we will try out an ancient Christian technique to 'digest' a Buddhist text and try listen with all our body and being. The technique is called 'Lectio Divina' and is a very old Christian Monastic technique in which you read a small part of an inspiring piece of text, slowly and in silence.

Our chaplain Jeanette den Ouden has worked with the Lectio Divina technique for 15 years and is happy to share her experience with it.
