Why Happiness Is Hard and How to Make It Easier

Tuesday, March 15
2:00PM - 3:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Ballroom D
531 E 4th St

Andy Puddicombe, meditation teacher, former Buddhist monk and co-founder of Headspace takes us on an exploration of the human mind. What does it mean to be happy? Why do we struggle when we have so much? What is the relationship between hope and fear? How can we find a sense of meaning and purpose in our life? How can we tap into our creative potential for the benefit of others? Looking through the lens of mindfulness and science, Puddicombe will show you how to train your mind for a healthier and happier life.
