PATHWAYS TO JOY with Joan Klagsbrun
Bringing Positive Psychology Into your Daily Life
Sunday April 29, 2-4pm ~ Positive Psychology is not about putting a happy face that covers over our important life struggles - it's about balancing suffering by amplifying our authentic well-being, and is an evidenced-based approach for increasing our capacity (or our clients' capacity) for flourishing, and for fully appreciating our lives. People who have a higher ratio of “positivity” to “negativity” have more energy and better health. In the workshop, we will use Focusing to review several forms of positivity, such as joy, gratitude, serenity, hope, awe and love and to personally explore a few different pillars of Joy, as defined by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu. Then we will reflect on positive defining moments in our lives that have elevated us or brought us greater connection. We will end by exploring how to have more of these transformative moments. $25 at the door
