What does it really mean to be happy? While some people seek happiness in external factors, research has found that the true keys to happiness come from within. It does take some work on your part, but by making small adjustments in mindset and behavior, you can reap the rewards of a happier life.

In this 5-week online engagement class, we will explore the factors that have been shown to increase levels of happiness. Each week will focus on one key to a happier life: gratitude, self-acceptance, generosity, social connections, and loving-kindness. Through guided meditation, self-reflective worksheets, large and small group discussion, and learning videos, you will learn how to integrate these “happiness habits” into your daily life. As you discover how to shift your perspective of yourself, others, and life events, you will naturally feel better about your life.

Instructor: Tarika Lovegarden is the author of Meditations on the Fridge. Born into a family of meditators and trained by pre-eminent meditation leaders, she carries forth her lineage teaching individuals and at organizations including Oracle, eBay, and Genentech.
