    At Happy Science, we offer a spiritual guide to living now. The Truth that we teach transcends the barriers of race, culture and religion, and is a major force in uniting a despairingly fragmented world. Members of Happy Science strive for self-refinement through a continuous practice of faith and the education of the soul via the exploration of the right mind and The Fourfold Path of Love, Wisdom, Self-Reflection, and Progress. We welcome you to join our Sunday services and meditation workshops at our temple in Pasadena and our locations in the Greater Los Angeles region and San Diego.
