A Short Course in Happiness After Loss (and Other Dark, Difficult Times)

For everyone.

It is possible to thrive even in the midst of life’s harshest moments. Using dialogue, meditation, journaling, and small-group conversation, this potent program—informed by the evidence-based teachings of positive psychology—lights up pathways to happiness that acknowledge the reality of suffering along with the bounty and goodness present in your world.

Play a bit, laugh a little, and remember what brings you joy and contentment as you work with the themes of gratitude, mindfulness, strength, connection, and the transformation of stress. Explore who you are at your best—even when life is challenging. This program is for everyone seeking to build resilience; traverse a difficult time with health and humor; recover from loss, heartbreak, or disappointment; and move toward a happier life.

"Since taking this program I'm excelling at work and my personal life seems in order. But most importantly, Maria taught me the most invaluable lesson of all: self-love. And I love myself even more with each passing sunrise." — Jonathan T., past program participant
