Courses & Events About Gratification has been a successful experiment in pleasurable group living for over 30 years. The cornerstone of my philosophy and lifestyle is the concept of perfection. My working premise is that people and situations are right the way they are and that perfection includes the potential for change. I consider my social researchers, and I study in the living laboratory of my lives and the lives of my students, what reliably works and what doesn't work for creating a happy life. That includes, among other things, pleasurable interpersonal relationships, good, effective communication, and a gratifying sensual life. I present my findings to the public in the form of courses.
