The Happiness Lab
On Thursday March 16 we had the last session of the very first Happiness Lab run in Sydney. It is a little sad to come to an end of such a wonderful project, but at the same time we are very encouraged and inspired by the community response to this innovative program and the overwhelmingly positive feedback.
The Lab consisted of six sessions where the participants explored topics relating to happiness and thriving, such as gratitude, kindness, resilience and others, and watched videos where these topics were discussed by scientists, doctors, psychologists and spiritual leaders. However the main intention of the course was not discussion only but encouraging participants to intentionally practice these principles in their lives.
Participants from varied cultural and social backgrounds took part in the Lab. It was wonderful to meet new people from our local community and enjoy rich stimulating discussions. We hope that new friendships built during the Lab will thrive and strentgthen our local community.
Big thank you to Karina Kreminski, one of the SHNC’s Governance Committee members, for initiating and facilitating the Lab!
Another installment of the Happiness lab will run in October. You can find out more about the project and stay in touch here – The Happiness Lab Facebook page.
