FOCUSING ON WHAT MATTERS
Happiness as a Mindful Practice with Joan Klagsbrun
Sunday, October 23, 10-4:30 ~ We are a problem-oriented culture, one that pays a great deal of attention to what is wrong in our lives. We spend far less time paying attention to all the positives: the experiences in which we feel most alive, the places where we have been resilient in the face of adversity, the times when we feel joy. We pay a price for gravitating towards the negative. Positive Psychology is not about putting a happy face that covers over our important life struggles. It is about amplifying our authentic well-being. It is an evidenced-based approach for increasing our capacity for flourishing, and for fully appreciating our lives. By placing attention on positive experiences such as gratitude and enjoyment, we can actually think more effectively. In this workshop, we will explore how Focusing can be used to enhance and deepen your 'positivity', reflecting on five different pathways to wellbeing, then discovering and working with our signature strength. $75 at the door ~ approved for 6 CEUs for social workers and LMHCs
