I can save them the fee for this workshop. Seek the word of Jesus, it is through Him that happiness is found.

Yes, because look how happy all those Catholic schoolboys are today. And what, Jews, Muslims and other religious people can't be happy because they don't believe in Jesus?

They say ignorance is bliss so you must be one happy, happy person.

"meditate, reflect, talk in groups and take notes"

Sounds stressful.

Wherever happiness is to be found, I personally guarantee it will not be in a room with a bunch of old, fat women with subpar intelligence and nothing interesting to say. Especially when you realize you got hornswaggled out of $160 just to be there.

I'll save anyone who wants to go to this travesty enough money on 4 good dinners: if you are 1) in shape, 2) can laugh at yourself and others, and 3) keep in touch with a few good friends a week, you will be happier than 95% of people out there.

Swindled, taken for a ride, etc.

Actually I partially renege my previous statement. It would temporarily help my happiness considerably being around these cretinous women for 5 minutes or however long enough it would take for the appreciation that I'm not as intellectually vacant or exist nearly as pointlessly as them. It's why trips to Wal-mart can boost your happiness too, when you surround yourself momentarily with a much lower form of humanity, you can feel better by comparison. Just don't hang around long enough for their hopelessness to rub off on you.

Still not worth the scratch and the extra time.

From a worldly foundation, happiness is only fleeting. From a biblical view happiness is found through Jesus. Jesus is real, just as the bible is the Word of God. It takes more faith to be an atheist.

If you have to pay someone to tell you how to be happy, then you're probably missing the happiness gene. It is certain that you'll lose $160 and gain a few calories. It's unlikely that your life will be measurably brighter after lunch. Just decide to be happy. Done.

Spending $160 in order to be instructed in "balanced hedonism" sounds like a bummer.

You know, the Greeks mused on this theme often as well; the dichotomy between Dionysus, god of wine and excess, and Apollo, god of the sun and truth.

Frankly, if you are over the age of 12 and don't know how to have fun and find happiness (or how to pursue it) then there is nothing anyone (especially aged hippies) can teach or tell you that is going to change that.

So your parents never left anything for you under your pillow? The tooth fairy was real, it just happened to be your parents. The lie was in identifying the fairy, not in the actual existence.

I read your story on NBC29 with interest until I got to the part re cost.$160 is beyond my reach. I feel I must say that most activities that could contribute to one's happiness is only for the upper income and leaves most of us retired folks out. I realize this is about a money making plan. A gift bag--really.

How exactly does it take more faith to be an atheist ? Do you have any evidence to support this statement that the bible is the word of any gods or that Jesus is real ? Have you ever researched who wrote the bible or why it was written ? I have and found it was created by melding all the beliefs of the period to better control the servants and get money from the rich, anyone who refused to "have faith" was tortured till they did, or simply killed in a horrific manner by being burned alive. Happiness comes from within !

Christianity has robbed every symbol and belief it ascribes to from Pagan beliefs that were around long before this guy Christ was supposed to have walked on water. Even that act was robbed from a former pagan story. Whats to believe if its all false? Believe in yourself. Believing in a boogyman is like believeing in the tooth fairy.
