This course is for anyone with an interest in exploring the subject of happiness and what happiness might mean for them.
This 6-week course will be a fascinating exploration of ideas of happiness in popular culture, positive psychology and secular spirituality. It will consider mindfulness practice and other approaches that aim to promote happiness and will challenge our personal and cultural assumptions and expectations of happiness to facilitate ways of looking at life in potentially helpful new ways. The tutors on the course will share their personal experience of what helps us laugh and the benefits of humour. The course will look more closely at how we can integrate suffering whilst living well and things we can do to cultivate joy. The course aims to create a safe and welcoming environment in which participants develop trust and feel supported in sharing their thoughts, values, interests and (maybe) forgotten passions and talents to find deeper meaning in what truly makes us happy.
This 6-week course will meet Fridays on: 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th November and 7th December
