Please note: registration is now full for this talk that will be held via Zoom. Attendance was limited to 15 participants.

What is happiness? Can it be measured? And what is the relationship between happiness and virtue, money, pleasure, relationships, mindfulness, and satisfaction? In this program adapted for an interactive digital presentation, William Edelglass will focus on what research suggests makes us happier, and then introduce three practices that research shows do make us happier: gratitude practices, compassion practices, and mindfulness practices. The group will experiment with these practices, and then break into small groups to reflect on them.
