Finding Your Happy: 16 Guidelines for Life
~ a full day interactive retreat

by Mindfulness Hamilton

How would it feel to wake up every day with an inner knowing that whatever the day threw your way, your happiness was unshakeable?

Finding Your Happy: 16 Guidelines for Life are workshops and tools based on a set of values that aim to encourage positive qualities in your life. They help you to change how you think, how you act, how you relate to others and how you find meaning. By noticing our patterns of thinking, speaking and acting, and understanding how our minds work through mindfulness and self-enquiry, we can find lasting fulfillment. 16 Guidelines can give you transferrable skills to create a cascade of impact, beyond just self-improvement. Equipped with better knowledge of ourselves we can break through our limiting beliefs, transform our relationships, make better decisions, and find peace of mind even on the most difficult of days. We can find our happy!

Who is the course for? 16 Guidelines is useful for people of all ages and backgrounds.

It is particularly ideal for:

  • Teachers and careers or those in support roles
  • Coaches and psychologists
  • Those who work in business environments
  • Anyone seeking practical tools to bring about positive change in their life

16 Guidelines offers a training path to become a 16 G facilitator.

What you will do

The Guidelines use mindfulness and group exercises based on compassion and ethics and are designed to enhance your mental wellbeing, strengthen emotional resilience, and build positive relationships and communities, bringing happiness to you and those around you.

In our workshops you will take part in partner and group work as you practice mindfulness exercises and individual meditations, reframing and pre-framing your thinking.

You will be given a set of the 16 Guidelines cards.

The 16 Guidelines book will be available for sale – $25.00
