Personal Growth through Movies: Creating Truly Happy Lives Film: "Hector and the Search for Happiness" (2014) Note: This is a discussion-based event. We will watch scenes (with English subtitles), NOT the entire movie. Be prepared to share your opinion, if you wish. If you have ever wanted to get to the heart of what life is about, this session is for you. In it, we will discuss and learn about: 1. The various components that are known to contribute to happiness, especially those mentioned in the film. 2. Blocks to that happiness which arise from our egos 3. Happiness as a skill to be cultivated instead of an object to be obtained or a destination at which to arrive. (Using scenes from mainstream movies, "Personal Growth through Movies" examines universal life principles from ancient wisdom traditions, combining mainly spirituality (not religion) and psychology in a practical manner, as a way of helping us improve our lives and realize true success, inner fulfillment, and lasting happiness.)

Cost: €7. PLEASE BRING EXACT CHANGE. Happiness has been a hot topic ever since the rise of Positive Psychology and the importance it has placed on creating happy lives through positive thinking, attitudes, and lifestyles. Even science has made significant contributions to the subject by establishing techniques proven to be effective. Yet, all the strategies in the world designed to promote happiness are ultimately meaningless without placing them within a greater context of who we are and why we're here. In this session, we will watch scenes from the charming and quirky film "Hector and the Search for Happiness" (2014), starring Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, and Christopher Plummer, and see that a truly happy and fulfilling life must be established from the inside out, combining the truths from our inner spiritual journey with the rationality and practicality of our outer worldly experiences. In the end, happiness is what we all want, irrespective of our individual life goals. Come find out how to make this year—and every year thereafter—the very happiest of your life. Note: Try to watch the film before coming, but don't worry if you can't. We will watch scenes, NOT the whole movie. We will have English subtitles. Please remember to RSVP only if you can come—and try to come no later than 17.40 (but later is possible). Thank you!
