9781456374136: A course in happiness: an authentic happiness formula for well-being, meaning and flourishing

Do you want to start cultivating joyful living, here and now? If so, "A course in happiness: an authentic happiness formula for well-being, meaning and flourishing" is here to facilitate you, both as Kindle book and online course you can take at your own convenience (more information on: http://www.amareway.org/holisticliving/11/new-years-resolution-ecourse-a-course-in-happiness/).

The book received stellar media coverage in North America (http://www.amareway.org/about-our-bloggers/media-coverage/), Europe and Asia. It offers tools to assess one's subjective well-being, and approaches to live a happier, purpose-driven and flourishing life. It is based on the blog "Authentic Happiness Formula: A course in happiness & meaning" available on http://www.amareway.org/

The first eleven chapters of the book are based on AmAre, an acronym which stands for "being":
- Aware and Accepting
- Meaningful and Motivated
- Active and Attentive
- Resilient and Respectful
- Eating properly and Exercising
They also address questions like “Is happiness an inside job? Or does it depend on external factors?” by thinking in terms of degree of facilitation. “Some events are like a weight” says Frank, “making harder for people to fly; some are like a lift, facilitating people's happiness. However, considering even the way human beings discern between weights and lifts is subjective, happiness is about attitudes and choices, it is not a place to reach through external factors”.

Topics covered in the book include:
- Happiness is a way of living
- Power of context
- Being aware of awareness: consciousness matters
The author of the book, Frank Ra, is a Dharma instructor, has been coaching and working in eCommunication since late 1995; he studied Dharma, Business, and graduated in International Relations and Diplomacy.

He is Italian, has spent most of his adult life in North America, England and Estonia, and travelling around the World. He settled in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

=== Quotes about happiness === Some people CHASE happiness. And some people CHOOSE happiness... Robert Holden

When I find myself focusing overmuch on the anticipated future happiness of arriving at a certain goal, I remind myself to 'Enjoy now'. If I can enjoy the present, I don't need to count on the happiness that is (or isn't) waiting for me in the future.
Gretchen Rubin
Try to make at least one person happy every day, and then in ten years you may have made three thousand, six hundred and fifty persons happy, or brightened a small town by your contribution to the fund of general enjoyment.
Sydney Smith
What is the meaning of life? To be happy and useful.
Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have a paradise in a few years.
Bertrand Russell
We must select the illusion that appeals to our temperament and embrace it with passion, if we want to be happy.
Cyril Connolly
He who has no wish to be happier is the happiest of men.
W. R. Alger
Happiness is a habit, cultivate it.
Elbert Hubbard
To be content with what one has is the greatest and truest of riches.
Cicero
All happiness comes from the desire for others to be happy. All misery comes from the desire for oneself to be happy.
Shantideva
Never lose your happiness. Problems will come and go, problems are an external situation which have come from others, and they will come and go. Happiness is your own property and you always keep something that belongs to you.
Om Shanti
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Mahatma Ghandi

He is a Dharma instructor; has been coaching and working in eCommunication since late 1995; he also studied nutrition, business and graduated in International Relations and Diplomacy.

He also think that life is the ultimate koan, with hints can be found both within and outside one's tradition, and the final answer lies only within oneself - or the lack of it as understood in the conventional way. You can contact him on http://www.amareway.org/ In Italian, AmAre means "to love"; in English, interconnectedness: (I)Am (we) Are. AmAre stands for being: A - Aware and Accepting M - Meaningful and Motivated A - Active and Attentive R - Resilient and Respectful E - Eating properly and Exercising You can measure your AmAre Index on http://www.amareway.org/ which also publishes daily updates about spiritual insights and evidence-based research, to facilitate living a happy and meaningful life for the benefit of all beings.
