Happiness and contentment are a direction, not a state. Yearning to shape ourselves in order to become who we really are, is a powerful motivator. This workshop explores in a practical and enjoyable way, the art of creating happiness, contentment and skilful action, the longing for something more… and the inner freedom and deep contentment which brings a sublime smile.
How we think about ourselves and our future influences our feeling of happiness and contentment. Research from University of Virginia has shown that we are bad at predicting how we will feel in the future. When we even reach our goals of achieving what we think will make us happy, often those feelings are fleeting and we return to our “normal state”. We think that a fresh career or a new relationship will permanently change us, but it usually gives us only a short term boost. It helps if we learn to predict more accurately what will give us lasting pleasure rather than short term pleasure.
