Course work includes readings, discussions, guided meditations and interesting homework. We will systematically explore activities conducive to happiness such as journaling, exercise, time in nature, creative expression, meditation, community service and more.
Our group, small and dedicated, supports and inspires each individual to go further than s/he may have gone alone—just as geese fly further in flocks than alone.
Please join us on our journey to happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives.
