Paths to Happiness: Buddhism and Positive Psychology

With Dr. Winston McCullough. Join us as we discover authentic, proven methods to cultivate happiness and well-being, connecting 21st century psychology theory and research with insights from ancient wisdom traditions, Eastern and Western.

Aristotle and the classic philosophers spoke of the benefits of human virtue. The enduring spiritual traditions also highlight the importance of virtuous attitudes and behaviors. And, modern psychologists are collecting empirical evidence that demonstrates the connections between virtue and happiness.

  • But, what exactly is virtuous and non-virtuous behavior?
  • Does living a virtuous life really matter? If so, to whom?
  • Who can make the call about what's virtuous and what's not?
  • Can a focus on virtue have unintended consequences?
  • Is there a generic list of virtues and behaviors we should all follow, or does it vary for each person?

Join us this Saturday in Corvallis, OR, for a lively in-depth discussion of this topic and these questions, with self-assessment and self-development exercises to explore what virtues are personal for you!

Free of charge.
