• In the past 15 years cutting-edge innovations in neuroscience have led to one of the most powerful insights in human history…that within each and every one of us there are natural biological potentials for real happiness.

    In this course, you will learn how to harness your brain's own natural anti-depressants and uncover your true potential for joy!

I'm Elisha Goldstein, author of The Now Effect and most recently Uncovering Happiness: Overcoming Depression with Mindfulness and Self-Compassion. For over 15 years I've been studying and teaching the psychology, neuroscience and practice of uncovering happiness in everyday life.

Along the way I've dug deep into a variety of disciplines and discovered some key natural anti-depressants that:

  • turn the volume down on our negative thinking,
  • lower our stress,
  • heighten states of joy and
  • wire in the balance and confidence that we can all learn and attain.

    This has been my experience, the experience of thousands of people I've worked with and is also backed by the latest science.
  • About The Symposium

    The Uncovering Happiness Symposium is a very personal project for me. It's been my life's work to uncover the potential in each and every one of us for uncovering happiness and I couldn't be more thrilled to bring it to you right now.

    In this Symposium you'll learn:

  • The key ingredients of lasting happiness.
  • How to practically bring them into your daily life.
  • And how to do it so you change your brain for the better.

    Ultimately you will learn how to take back control of your mind, your mood and your life, sewing the seeds for real lasting happiness.
  • About Our Interviews

    I've interviewed some of the top scientists, neuroscientists, researchers and practitioners in the field of happiness and well-being for this Symposium. You'll hear from Byron Katie, Tara Brach, Kelly McGonigal, Sharon Salzberg, Dan Harris, Jack Kornfield and others - check out the curriculum below.

    These are people from Harvard, UCLA and many of whom have written New York Times bestselling titles on the topics of happiness. Plus, as a bonus to you I've asked each speaker to give you a practice that makes happiness practical right now. You'll get over 20 practices to use at home and work. These are practices that help you:

  • create a naturally anti-depressant brain,
  • reduce stress and anxiety,
  • have better relationships,
  • overcome negative habits with eating and
  • create confidence at home and at work.

    Enrol today and learn how to harness your brain's own natural anti-depressants and uncover a real lasting happiness in your life.
