Building Happiness

"The whole world isn't worth spending one moment unhappy in life" -Hafez

Is there a way of building happiness in everyday life? Can this be part of hands-on building activity for a community?
In this workshop we will take a look at Earth and Community and explore hands-on ways that it connects with human happiness, and with a sense of purpose in a person's life. We will learn skills for small projects for community garden, social space and recycling.

Study will be made using traditional masonry arts as well as ceramics, anatomy, laughter yoga and futuristic technologies for the Moon and Mars.

We will address pressing issues in the world today, ones which cause grief and stress to humanity such as natural and man-made disasters and their consequences. We will look at sustainable solutions to these and the relationship between structure & happiness through timeless principles of design.

"whoever is molding your breath that alone in hard times will not leave you alone beaming your heart with hopeful dreams finding lovely friends for your home" -Rumi
