Workshop updated: The Pursuit of Happiness Workshop

Posted by Counselling and Psychological Services on October 31, 2014 in General Announcements

Do you often feel as though something is missing from your life? Do you just want to be happy?

We spend much of our lives searching for the elusive thing we call happiness. We put a great deal of time and effort into attempting to live a life defined by happiness. Unfortunately, the quest for happiness may not actually culminate in a perfect, fulfilling life. Once we truly understand that happiness is a never-ending quest, we can begin to free ourselves from its trap and in turn live a more enjoyable, fulfilling, value-driven life.
The Pursuit of Happiness Workshop series is based on Dr. Russ Harris' book "The Happiness Trap: Stop Struggling, Start Living." Participants will learn about thought-awareness, mindfulness, and strategies to deal with negative thoughts, emotions, and physical feelings. We will work on developing a mindful connection with our world, and connection with personal values.
