Authentic Happiness Workshop and Speaking Topics

A Creative Approach to Joy, Satisfaction, and a Meaningful Life 

For many, happiness can seem like an elusive mirage: apparently filling our lives with joy and contentment in one moment, only to slip through our fingers the next. As a result, many find themselves in the constant pursuit of happiness. In this interactive, enlightening, and lighthearted talk, De Anza College & John F. Kennedy University professor Javy W. Galindo explains how happiness need not be pursued, but chosen. Based on his graduate course on the psychology of happiness, let professor Galindo help you or your group learn the skills and attitudes needed to achieve authentic happiness.
