The Science of Wellbeing
Wellbeing: A marriage of science and spirituality.
A two-hour workshop led by Sam Patterson.
Happiness isn’t a one-size-fits-all phenomenon. What brings one person bliss might be another’s headache, but there are some habits and practices that have a long spiritual history of improving wellbeing.
As we move deeper into the twenty-first century, what can science teach us about taking control of our happiness?
In this two-hour workshop, we’ll put the hands of spirituality and science together as we explore ten practices that have empirical scientific backing behind them. We’ll also explore the ways in which aspects of spiritual practice can be validated by science. Is happiness genetic? How can we tailor our practice to our own personality? Can we be happier?
Come along to find out the answers to all these questions and more, as well as what practices will work best for you!
Feel free to bring a notepad and pen if you would like to make some notes. Tea and coffee will be provided.
About Sam Patterson:
Since graduating from the University of South Wales in 2013, I have been fascinated in exploring the beautiful and complicated world of the human. This fascination has led to me explore the many realms in which human beings have sought to understand themselves in different cultures, religions and nations. The question of how to live a good life is one that has followed me my whole adult life and I approach the question now with more vigour and enthusiasm the more I learn. I have a particular interest in how one can traverse both the scientific and the spiritual worlds and seek to explore this concept in my workshop.
