In Bhutan they measure wellbeing of the country's people, rather than just economic factors to determine the success of their nation and they don't allow the government to proceed with a policy unless it has been measured against the wellbeing goals. Dr Saamdu told us in a thought-provoking chat, the nation is prospering because they focus on nature, sustainability, human relationships and mindfulness. Katy Tsai and Tina Marsden Sound Oasis treated us to a musical meditation that carried us away. We also heard about how Do Good Challenge receipients The Sam Project used our $500 donation to buy a rechargeable screen projector, enabling them to show mental health awareness presentations in isolated Aussie communities. Trolley'd served us kombucha on recycled Ansett Airlines trolleys, Loving Earth chocolates and Moksha Ayurvedic teas made our happiness complete.
