Happiness Workshop

Happiness Workshop
In this day-long workshop, we will explore techniques that foster deep, enduring happiness.

About your presenter: Bruce Podobnik, PhD. is an Associate Professor at Lewis & Clark College. A sociologist by training, Bruce has taught a course on Happiness at Lewis & Clark College for the last three years.

    What a blessing to be able to receive both an update on scientific literature related to the study of happiness AND practice in basic meditation techniques! The balance of lecture, discussion and practice was just right. Thank you, Bruce, for your time, energy, knowledge and excellent facilitation skills. It was awesome!

    I'm still interested as well, Bruce. Also sent you an email, off this Meetup list, answering your questions about venue change and meditation experience.

    Hi everyone,
    This is Bruce Podobnik, the listed leader of the workshop. This workshop is one I led two years ago. Someone re-posted it for July 31, 2012 without checking with me. I could lead it on the 31st, if there is interest, but it hadnt been on my radar screen until today. I'd also probably need to change the location (and could reduce the suggested donation). Email me at the address below asap if you really want to attend and then I can provide an update.
