New Meetup: Happiness Support Group
Monday, November 23, 2009 8:02 AM
In Happiness 101 we have four rules adopted from Sonja Lyubomirsky's book The How of Happiness. The rules are: no blame, no shame, no guilt and no complaining. We do this to raise awareness of these "Happiness Robbers" and to keep the class positive. However, I have always acknowledged that there is a time and place to express so-called "negative" emotions.
Over the months it has felt at times that the students of Happiness 101 truly wanted to talk about some deeper issues that are effecting their Happiness. Since Happiness 101 is a class, and not a group, it has not been the right forum to go to a deeper level emotionally.
To give students and opportunity to "go there", I will be offering the Happiness Support Group once a month. This will be a paid event (as opposed to Happiness 101, which is free). I will, however, be splitting up the cost of the group among attendees. Therefore the more people that show up, the cheaper it will be for each individual - so bring a friend. Expect to pay between $10 and $20. Yes, credit cards are accepted. The group will be held at my office: 220 East 3900 South #7, Salt Lake City Call[masked] for recorded information.
