Have you ever stopped to contemplate pleasure? If you have, have you noticed that our minds crave it? Even demand it?
Pleasure is, by definition, a feeling of happy satisfaction and enjoyment. In and of itself, it is a wonderful thing – a beautiful emotion and feeling that we can experience in this human life.
But what happens to this feeling when our mind demands it? When it becomes a necessity for us to believe or feel that we are living a good life?
Then the other side of pleasure shows. The darker side.
What does this mean for us? Join us for our Monthly Meditation as we discuss how we can end the addiction to pleasure, which is to end pain, and begin to experience true happiness, contentment, satisfaction and enjoyment of life.

** At the Happyness Center, we want to ensure that opportunities for mental and emotional wellness are available to and accessible by everyone in our community, which is why we continue to provide several offerings at no charge.
If you are in a position to be able to help our Center cover it's costs for continuing to provide these services, we would be grateful for any monetary donation you can provide. Please note that 100% of donations will be used to continue to provide these emotional and mental wellness services.
IMPORTANT COVID UPDATE FOR MEDITATION PARTICIPANTS
For those participating in our Monthly Meditations, please note that we are hoping to conduct these in a park setting during the summer months to ensure that more people are able to attend. Please note that we will ensure to communicate with you where each month will take place as soon as possible.
All classes will be set up for Zoom as previously for those who would prefer not to attend in person, or whom are unable. Live, in-person attendance will be limited to 10 people per meditation. Please find the link to join below.
In the meantime, as we re-open, please note the following guidelines and program changes.
Live, in-person attendance will be limited to 10 people per monthly meditation. There is no limit for Zoom participants.
Please note that attendance at our Monthly Meditations is now registration based at a cost of $5.00 per person (no longer donation only). If this fee is prohibitive to you attending the meditation, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org. While we have had to implement a permanent fee for this offering, want all to be welcome and able to attend and are happy to speak with you about your individual situation. There will be no judgement, so please do not hesitate.
For those able to attend in person:
we ask that you to wash your hands with soap and water in the bathrooms (we will have the doors open) before you come into the room. We will have hand sanitizers available within our center doors, however soap is more effective.
We encourage you to wear a face mask for the safety of yourself and others, however this will not be mandatory.
