The course runs over 7 sessions every second week + 1 graduating session. Every session lasts approximately 120 minutes and focuses on one of the key behaviors linked with long-term happiness.
The format of sessions is highly practical – only 20-25% of time is spent on theory, while the rest is dedicated to actual application of the subject trait through hands-on exercises. This allows anyone to take this course without any prerequisites and achieve tangible results.
To enhance the experience, sessions are complemented with homeworks, individual reverse mentorship, private class facebook group, access to course alumni as well as public & private events.
As the journey to happiness is very personal, it is essential that all
participants come with an intention to help each other on this journey.
These simple yet important rules below ensure all of us would get
the most of the course.
1: We welcome different perspectives
2: We are supportive and friendly
3: We let everyone have a voice
4: We use the expertise in the room
5: We share a bit of ourselves
6: We act with integrity
7: We are present
I really liked the healthy mix between the scientific and practical sides of the course. Within every session we had a chance to learn why a certain behavior is scientifically linked with our happiness and, immediately after that, to do a practical exercise to develop a long term habit. Recommended!
The people that you meet as part of the course contribute to its magic! Everyone is really eager to help each other out, which creates a very comfortable environment to discuss and reflect on such an important topic as happiness. I am still in contact with most of fellow participants - it's like you are a part of people who love life! Truly empowering!
I always believed that happiness is in small things, but thanks to the course I had a chance to experience it in practice. It's incredible how much happier we can be just by deciding to do something deliberately that would make us happy - even if it's just taking this course!
Just imagine that in one moment you get a lot of new friends. Friends that are
full of positive energy, driven to make their life more beautiful, make their dreams
and help others make dreams come true. They aspire making happiness into their lifestyle.

Q: Is it a religious sect?

Q: Do I have to attend all the sessions?
A: We totally understand that sometimes reality kicks in and all of us won’t be able to attend all the sessions during the course. We believe that people participating in the course are genuinely interested in their happiness and, hence, would be motivated to be present as much as possible and complete exercises even if missing a session.
