Oh my gosh – it feels like the universe has given me the very best sort of hug & kiss! The other day, I discovered Andrew Parker’s PapaPals, which takes one of my dearest wishes – tagging up older people with engaging youngers – to heights I hadn’t imagined. And now this – – joy of joys, professor Laurie Santos, who gives Yale’s wildly popular course on HAPPINESS (1,200 students!), is offering it on Coursera (starts May 21). WHOOT WHOOT!
This is a course that EVERYONE should take, especially people working with olders elders ancients, who too easily feel that happiness is behind them, that well-being means not falling, who needed their equivalent of more Frisbee throws & kicking back in the quad with friends.
I’ve loved Laurie Santos since first reading about her in January, when her course blew all expectations of enrollment out the window – ¼ of the Yale student body enrolled to learn how to bring more balance & happiness to their lives!
What she offers on Coursera is available, with a certificate, for $49 ~or~ for FREE without.
