Habits of Happy People
3-week course

Happiness is something that each one of us has the potential to experience, but often our habitual ways of thinking take us in the opposite direction. This engaging 6-week mindfulness course will teach critical lessons about some of the habits of happy people that will enrich your life’s experience. We will explore several meditations and ways of thinking that uplift the mind and how by carrying these with mindfulness into our day we can maintain a light, joyful attitude whatever life throws our way. Everyone is welcome to attend the series of classes. No previous experience necessary.
