About this Event

It's not happiness that we should be striving for...it's meaning.

Research has shown that having purpose and meaning in life increases overall well-being and life satisfaction, improves mental and physical health, enhances resiliency, builds self-esteem, and decreases the chances of depression. And ironically, the single-minded pursuit of happiness is leaving people less happy, according to recent research. Is it the very pursuit of happiness that prevents happiness.

And what about by giving of yourself, to a cause to serve or another person to love—the more human you are. By focusing our lives to “giving” rather than “taking,” we also acknowledge that there is more to the good life than the pursuit of simple happiness.
