How to Be Happy at Will: Tools for well being
An offering for students and teachers to lead happy, stress-free lives
To seek happiness outside ourselves is like trying to lasso a cloud. Happiness is not a thing: It is a state of mind. It must be lived. Most people delay their happiness trying to make the outer world “just right.” But we know that almost never happens.
So is life meant to be lived in gloom except for those few fleeting moments of happiness? Not at all! By learning how to be happy at will using scientific techniques one can achieve inner happiness that is immune to outer inconveniences. Discover:
- The Happiness Trap: Why do we fail to find happiness outside ourselves?

We’ll also learn how to address specific harmful emotions that keep us from happiness:
Insecurities: To become aware of why we truly feel insecure in life (about ourselves or other people) and how through a simple mental shift we can replace insecurity with a deep feeling of inner security. We’ll practice a universal technique that is used to reinforce the positivity of the mind in order to help us feel truly secure in ourselves.
Loneliness: We’ll discuss and understand why, despite having so many people in our lives and despite our 24/7 hyperconnectivity with others (through the phone and social media), we all can feel lonely and empty at times. But there is a definite way to rise above feelings of loneliness and replace them with feelings of inner contentment and deep connectedness with others.
