Our “Personal Development eCourse: A course in happiness” provides you strategies and tools to live happier, now and here. Happiness is more about attitudes and choices, than external factors. After exploring the AmAre framework, we learn more about research – both in natural and social sciences – in the field of well-being, and how to apply it to daily life. Personal Development eCourse: A course in happiness is about cultivating happiness, together, to live happier lives, to benefit all.
