Mahwe Oxford Launch January 21st
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us for the launch of our Oxford Mahwe group in Jericho. Our first speaker will be Lorraine Groves with a talk on happiness.
Creating Happiness…do we already have everything we need to be happy?
Do tangible things make us happy or is it the more intangible things that make us happy? Does meeting our goals make us happy? Does winning the lottery make us happier?
What if we already had everything we need – right now (without achieving any new goals or winning the lottery!)– to be happy?
I believe we already have everything we need to create happiness – and I would like to share with you how in this talk.
First, two facts about me – 1) I am happy, and 2) I am a psychological scientist – which means I rely on research to guide my understanding of people and myself. I love positive psychology, which can be thought of as the science of happiness. The founding father of Positive Psychology, Martin Seligman describes happiness as: experiencing frequent positive emotions, such as joy, excitement and contentment, combined with deeper feelings of meaning and purpose. Happiness experts have argued that happiness is not a stable, unchangeable trait but something flexible that we can work on and ultimately strive towards.
Research has some pretty interesting things to say about happiness and I will be sharing some of these things with you in my talk. I will also be sharing with you how we can create happiness in our lives using the things we already have.
