“A happy moment can be a matter of luck; a happy life requires virtue.”

A human life that’s happy is not a trivial matter of being lucky, of getting what we want; pleasant pastimes or the absence of responsibilities or pain. A human life that’s happy is an accomplishment — a triumphant, sometimes even heroic creation. Sometimes we have to overcome tremendous physical or psychological hardships. Sometimes we have to resist strong short term temptations or struggle to make sense of our path. As with any big, long-term project, a happy life takes work; it’s complicated and time consuming — more like a great symphony of harmony and counterpoint than a simple, catchy jingle. To create a life that’s truly happy over time takes discipline, passion, and courage.

What if you had an owner’s manual for your mind?

A Master’s Course in Happiness is a monthly, in depth program to help you actively, purposefully, and effectively live a happier, more fulfilling life.

We don’t come into the world perfectly prepared to deal with the range of life’s emotions and challenges. We each have to learn to master our own selves – our own feelings, impulses, thoughts, and actions, in a way that allows us to function… and hopefully flourish.

There are skills for living well that we aren’t taught in school. Skills for dealing with your emotions and thoughts, skills for successful relationships… skills for using your mind to master your most important habits…

These skills and ideas are what you will learn in A Master’s Course in Happiness.

Happiness is not something that you have; it’s something that you do. Your happiness is fluid and changeable, and it has a lot to do with your own attitudes, thoughts, and actions, and less to do with your circumstances and history than you might imagine.

At a conference in May of 2010, I had the privilege of interviewing my friend, colleague and mentor, Nathaniel Branden, author of The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem, and one of the great figures in the modern fight for individual liberty. Nathaniel has had a huge impact on my life, inspiring me at 20 years of age to change my major and study psychology; and to begin a lifetime of championing happiness and well being, and personal and political freedom. It was wonderful to have a chance to talk with him about a wide range of subjects, from living with integrity, to the danger of perfectionism, to his own personal experiences with Ayn Rand.
