The Choice of Happiness, a series of seminars by Oana Velcu-Laitinen

Did you know that 40% of our happiness is within our capacity to change?

Welcome to our course The Choice of Happiness to find out how you can boost your happiness.

The course will consist of 8 seminars, in which we’ll cover topics such as awareness, self-compassion, empathy, generosity, awe, gratitude, love and forgiveness. These topics will be tackled from both a spiritual and positive psychology standpoint. Each seminar will take about one hour, by the end of which, you’ll be endowed with a set of techniques to cultivate your happiness.

The seminars are held once per month and are facilitated by Oana Velcu-Laitinen, PhD and certified coach.

Bring along an open mind and the willingness to connect with the other participants. You may bring a friend also.
The discussion groups are taking place at Arkadia International Bookshop.

The participation is for free but a donation of 3 euro would be more than welcome for supporting the existence of the bookshop.

Happiness is a journey into the surprising potential that each one of us possesses.
