In this new year, we are planning how to be happy. Lose some weight, learn a new language or just get organized! We tend to think if we get everything aligned: the right house, the right job, the right partner, we will be truly happy. However, we all know from experience that good external conditions give us only temporary happiness and most of the time leaves us discontent or unhappy.

So, how can we really be happy? By gaining experience through meditation that happiness is a state of mind. Understanding within our own experiences that  the real source of happiness lies within the mind and not in external conditions.

In this series, explore meditations that teach us how to create positive habits of mind and develop mental tools that empower us to be constructive in every situation.
