On June 5, 12, 19, 26 and July 10, from 6:00 to 7:15 p.m., the Massillon Public Library will present Searching For Happiness, a series of programs that will examine a number of ways that people around the world pursue a happy lifestyle.
What does happiness look like to you? What will it require for you to attain it? Guest presenter Gloria Miller will explain several methods that are practiced world-wide and have been known for centuries to help people find happiness.
Hygge, a concept created by the Danish (considered to be the happiest people on earth), which involves creating coziness and comfort in your home, causing you to live mindfully and with less stress; the Japanese practice of Ikegai, or focusing on your calling in life—your sense of purpose; forest bathing, or drenching yourself in the beauty and calming effect of nature; and the American approach, which is addressed in the books Simple Abundance and The Happiness Project. To end the series, participants will clarify their goals by personalizing their own Happiness Plan.
Registration is required for this free program series to be held in the library’s Duncan Room. This series is intended for ages 15 and over.
