What affects our happiness and what we can do to improve it
From Saturday Sep 02, 2017
to Saturday Sep 09, 2017
40% of what makes us happy is within our control - if only we know what to do! Here’s your chance to learn that, practise it and prepare to make it part of your daily life.
The content comes from large scientific projects in positive psychology (which generally confirm the wisdom and methods of many ancient traditions). It includes:
- Ten keys to happiness
- What really matters in life
- Finding peace of mind
- How should we treat others?
- Can we be happy at work?
- Trust in ourselves and others
- Building new habits and achievable goals
- Building happier communities
- Building the future for ourselves and communities
There will be a rich variety of methods, activating heart, mind and different ways of learning, with emphasis on practising different ways of being and relating. Short term goals or exercises will be set between sessions. `Buddy' pairs will support each other.
