The pursuit of happiness is one thing we all share in common. Yet if we all so fundamentally want to be happy, why aren't we? Why does happiness seem so challenging to achieve and maintain throughout our lives?
Take a dive into your mind in this interactive discussion on the science of happiness, explained within the frameworks of Tibetan Buddhist psychology and neuroscience. Beginning with a guided meditation and evolving into a talk and guided discussion, we will take a realistic look at the nature of the mind, and explore practices that help us cultivate mental resources to gradually reverse the wheel of suffering, making compassion, kindness and joy a spontaneous and lasting trait.
Happiness explored through the lens of science and eastern contemplative wisdom
Please join us for a dinner and discussion at our first speaker series spotlighting: The Science of Happiness.
We will host Anahita Moghaddam at Balanced NYC (a co-working space and lounge for the meditative entrepreneur) for a replenishing evening filled with conversation, interactive reflection and nourishing food.
Mindful Willpower is the practice of emotional self-mastery with the goal to positively reshape our response to our internal and external realities.
In this provocative training we uncover the fundamental difference between wanting something and willing it – and nurturing the causes and conditions that make it a powerful and deeply inspired state of being. The mastery allows us to tap into our mind’s unbound creative nature and helps us shift from powerlessness and dependency to self-directed ease and empowerment.
Forward-thinking organizations understand the positive impact self-regulated leaders and key employees have on corporate health and human development. This state of self-directedness is often coined as a “high emotional IQ or EQ”. It is a key attribute that distinguishes successful leaders and communicators. They are more effective leading others, inspire excellence, optimize performance and promote a sense of ease and wellbeing even when under pressure. Conflict decreases and the innate capacity for creative thinking and working increases.
HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE
Taking responsibility for our own happiness requires imagination, courage, resilience and a great deal of discipline.
By developing a sense of curiosity about the human condition and questioning the causes for unhappiness, we begin to gain insight into ways we can reverse the wheel, cultivating the inner resources for deep lasting happiness.
