Workshop Details

The purpose of our lives is to be happy. -His Holiness the Dalai Lama
The desire to experience joy and happiness is the underlying motivation behind nearly all of our behaviors. Joyful living enhances our health, well-being, relationships, the quality of our lives, even our longevity. It is a state of mind in which there is a sense of goodness, wholeness, and sufficiency that allows us to see life’s possibilities and blessings with clarity and hopefulness. To live in this experience we don't need to deny suffering, but rather we bring a perspective that allows us to open to the fullness of life and experience ever-present grace and to see with eyes unclouded by delusion and fear. Perennial wisdom reminds us that happiness is to be found within, not in pursuit of external rewards, yet the compulsion to look outside of ourselves is relentlessly reinforced by our culture.
In this seminar for couples and individuals, we will de-condition the internalized tendencies to focus on changing external conditions, and strengthen our capacity to cultivate inner joy. The workshop will include interactive exercises, meditation, dialogue, and group process. It will also include practices that promote well-being and fulfillment.
