The Art of Happiness

Structure: One weekend or two single days, 1 month apart. During a weekend event you have the benefit of really immersing yourself in the event – plus it cuts down on travel costs! Both will give you 1 months use of our training forum + relevant members-only information accessible via our website.

During this potentially life changing weekend we explore the art of being happy and provide practical tools and strategies for measuring, and evoking this essential state of being. And, as with other programmes we offer, we will examine what we consider to be reality and the true nature of what it is to be Human.

What is happiness and what use does it have in our busy, modern day lives?

Happiness is commonly seen as a ‘nice’ thing to have, but not necessarily an important state compared with those required to tackle the plethora of duties and responsibilities of our daily lives – but this couldn’t be further from the truth!

Happiness is a vitally important state. Not only does it provide an excellent measure of our vitality, and inform us of our present condition, it also has a profound affect upon us both physically, mentally and emotionally. Of course, we are all also familiar with the opposite states from happiness (stress, anxiety and depression to name a few) and the symptoms that can often occur from these.

Happiness is not something outside of us but is a choice, albeit a subconscious choice for many of us, that we make in each moment. Like Human excellence, as Aristotle mentions below, happiness is an art form that needs to be learned, practised and refined.
People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.
Abraham Lincoln

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
