About I HATE HAPPINESS

Hi! I'm Bruce Cantwell and I hate happiness.

I'm all in favor of love, joy, contentment, cheerfulness, satisfaction, well-being, resilience, and inner peace: all the things we associate with happiness.

But the root word of happy (hap) means luck, and the idea that happiness is dependent on things being a certain way runs so deep in our culture that I spent more than half my life thinking I would be happy if only…

Happily, advances in neuroscience now confirm that all of the qualities of "lasting happiness" are learned skills that can be cultivated through practice. And, since none of us has a one-size-fits-all answer to what lasting well-being even means, the best way forward is to pool our insights and practice them together!  

Because a lifetime of joy, contentment, cheerfulness, satisfaction, well-being, resilience, and inner peace is too valuable to leave to chance.
