What does it mean to live a happy, meaningful life? How do you respond with resilience to life’s unavoidable stresses and disappointments? How can you forge compassionate connections at a time of extreme busyness, isolation, and division?
Hundreds of thousands of people worldwide have explored these and other big questions in The Science of Happiness, the online course and podcast—both produced by UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center (GGSC)—that have become a global phenomenon.
Now the GGSC and 1440 Multiversity are partnering to take the next step in deepening The Science of Happiness experience: a 3-day gathering that will bring together a global community of individuals hungry for scientific insights, inspiring stories, and practical tips for well-being. The event provides an opportunity for Science of Happiness students and listeners to connect with one another, but enrolling in the online course is by no means a pre-requisite.
Together, we’ll hear from some of the leading lights in the science of happiness, including The Science of Happiness course co-instructors (and podcast host) Dacher Keltner, Ph.D., and Emiliana Simon-Thomas, Ph.D., along with best-selling author and world-renowned teacher Jack Kornfield, Ph.D.; positive psychology pioneer Barbara Fredrickson, Ph.D.; trailblazing neuroscientist Richie Davidson, Ph.D.; and many others. A memorable mix of experts and teachers will offer powerful talks, interactive workshops, and illuminating conversations—all designed to help you use scientific findings for personal and social transformation.
Over these special three days, you will:
● Gain cutting-edge insights from the frontiers of the science of happiness, including the science of mindfulness, gratitude, compassion, awe, and more
● Learn research-based practices for well-being in your personal and professional life
● Connect with like-minded individuals who share your desire for boosting happiness in yourself and the world around you
● Partake in a live recording of an episode of The Science of Happiness podcast
● Absorb and apply uplifting ideas for well-being within the peaceful surroundings of the 1440 campus
Like the course and the podcast, this gathering will leave you inspired and informed, equipped with practical strategies—and new connections—to help you contribute to the greater good. When it comes to a joyful and sustainable life, the time is now.
