Mental Wellness Book Club (The Happiness Project)
April 9, 2024 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm$10.50
Tacit Knowledge is excited to present another of our specialized Mental Wellness Book Club Programs (The Happiness Project). Book Therapy (also known as Bibliotherapy) is a type of counselling that focuses on leveraging the power of stories to heal. Individuals come together to read and discuss the highlights from a book chosen specifically to help them make concrete changes in their lives that are designed to move them towards an increased sense of happiness and peace.
Join us once a month – on the second Tuesday – at 6:30pm (MST) – from January 9th to December 10th (2024), inclusive (Jan 9, Feb 13, Mar 12, Apr 9, May 14, June 11, July 9, Aug 13, Sept 10, Oct 8, Nov 12 and Dec 10th). This 12-week Program is offered via Zoom and is a terrific opportunity for participants to come together and find creative ideas and simple strategies that promote a healthy well-being.
this time, we will be reading The Happiness Project – by Gretchen Rubin – for our Mental Wellness Book Club Program. According to Amazon, “Rubin chronicles her adventures during the twelve months she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific research, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. Among other things, she found that novelty and challenge are powerful sources of happiness; that money can help buy happiness, when spent wisely; that outer order contributes to inner calm; and that the very smallest of changes can make the biggest difference.”
This book is already broken into 12 parts – one segment will be addressed in each of the 12 monthly sessions of the Program. Participants are encouraged to pre-read the appropriate segment on their own, before each meeting. (But don’t worry if you fall behind in your reading – we will be enjoying selected excerpts from the bock together, in each meeting, and our discussions will focus on these parts especially.) The book has been designed as an annual project for anyone who wants to move towards a simpler and happier life by making real and permanent changes in the bigger aspects that impact our overall well-being.
Everyone is welcome to join us for this Program – you DO NOT have to be a resident of Beaumont to attend. You can participate for all of or just some of the sessions, as you are able.
