Because I’m Happy: Pursuing the Art of Happiness as if Your Life Depended On It (because it does)

Join Where is My Guru’s founder Jessica Durivage in a course on the art and science of happiness. Dive into the science behind happiness, learn how happiness is defined by other cultures around the world and gain new tools and practices to understand how happiness IS who you are at your deepest core level.

There exists a way of being that can embrace all the joys and sorrows that come to us, a way so deep that nothing can change it. It’s this infinite well of calm that fuels lasting fulfillment and boundless contentment.

Explore happiness through the lens of science and spirituality, through cultures and societies and most of all through the lens of your own experience.
