What is Positive Psychology?

The Science of Happiness/Well-being is closely aligned with the field of Positive Psychology which focuses on what works in our lives with the understanding that our brain is wired for negativity.

By learning how to choose happiness, we experience improved relationships and health, ease in our work and an appreciation for community and collaboration.

Would you like to teach Happiness online or locally? 

The Happiness Journey is a 4-week live online video course based on a rich curriculum that includes a 300-page book and 6 hours of lively group discussion and multi-media experience.

Teacher training is also available so that you may integrate these concepts into your current work or offer workshops to the public.
