NYC / The Awakening Mind: The Contemplative Science of Happiness

  • The Assemblage NoMad 114 East 25th Street New York, NY, 10010 United States (map)

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.
