I have been on the emailing list of the UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Centre, which combines science and practice to explore the science of a happy and meaningful life – the roots of happy and compassionate individuals, strong social bonds, and altruistic behavior.
Even better, they are offering a free online course in September to learn about the roots of happiness. Research suggests that up to 40 percent of happiness depends on our habits and activities, and so happiness is not purely due to genetics. Each week, students in this course will learn a new research-tested practice that fosters social and emotional well-being—and the course will help them track their progress along the way. What an enlightening course!
