What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

What constitutes a worthwhile, joyful and fulfilling life?

For each person the answer will be different, since there is no standard path to a calm, peaceful, and joyous life; everyone's path is different. Yet, a peaceful, calm, joyful and fulfilled life is what we all seek and yearn for.

Joy is not something that can be pursued and it's also not a permanent state of chirpiness. It ebbs and flows with periods of great pain and suffering. This acceptance of the impermanence of joy is one of the keys to a life of fulfillment and ease.

Plus, there is an advantage to being joyful. Studies have shown that when people are joyful and at peace they are more effective in life and also relate better to their classmates, friends and families.

This workshop is designed for tweens & teens -- students who believe there is value in investing in themselves - that they are worth it - and for those who yearn to be more joyful, more fulfilled and more peaceful in their lives at school and at home. Join us as we share insights for the path to joy, personal mastery and self-respect through happiness exercises, practices and tools.

You will learn about:
  • Self awareness & self acceptance
  • What really matters in life
  • What actually makes us happy
  • How should we treat each other
  • How to be happier at school
  • How to overcome those difficult moments - resilience
