Happiness: How To Get More and Give More

 

heart

Presenter: Dr. Mark Baxter, The Nevada Institute for Spirituality and Healthcare

The research on Happiness is out! Stanford, Berkeley, Harvard and other institutions are demonstrating how happiness is both deeply complex and yet beneficial to our physical, mental and spiritual health.  Dr. Baxter will demonstrate how we are able to move beyond a surface level definition of happiness to ultimately experience it in a new, profound way that can transform us from within.

Developing more compassion, empathy, and mindfulness for ourselves, as well as for others, is one of the most powerful ways to increase happiness in our lives and in the lives of those around us.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Prayer Group

Centering Prayer in Community

Developed by Fr. Thomas Keating, Centering Prayer is a method of prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of God’s presence in Contemplative Prayer. Beyond thoughts, words and emotions, Centering Prayer leads to a resting in God. Praying in a group setting creates an atmosphere where the mind is quieted more easily, a sacred community is formed, and practitioners experience a depth that bears fruit in spirit, body and mind.
