Event description

Description

This day will train you to run Livability’s “The Happiness Course” in your community.

What is The Happiness Course?

The Happiness Course is a four session course based on scientific research, ancient wisdom and real life experience. Participants can apply the course to improve their own happiness, and churches can use it to make their community a happier place.

The Happiness Course was developed by Livability to support churches in having meaningful conversations about happiness and wellbeing.

In every session we talk about our experiences, examine what science tells us, and then explore practical tools that we can use during the week. The course starts by asking the simple question ‘What makes you happy?’ It then examines four different kinds of happiness – pleasure, success, relationships and meaning.

How to become a course leader

This training day will equip you to run Livability’s Happiness Course in your community. A typical training day will include:

  • Course content and structure
  • “Shalom”, a theology for individual and community wellbeing
  • Positive psychology and the scientific research about wellbeing
  • How to deliver the course in different contexts and put wellbeing at the centre of your church’s mission
  • An opportunity to practice and develop training skills.

Once you have been trained you will receive a licence to be able to run the Happiness Course for two years. During this time you will receive ongoing support from Livability, including marketing materials to promote your courses, access to regular events and training opportunities.

Ticket types

The cost of the course covers lunch, a leader’s manual and access to an online learning platform which includes further resources.

We offer a discount for churches and community organisations that would like to train more than one course leader. The first person books a standard £100 ticket and each subsequent leader (up to a maximum of five) leader books a £50 additional license ticket.

If you are unable to pay by card and would prefer an invoice, please contact us on happiness@livability.org.uk to arrange this, then register your details selecting the “prepaid by invoice” option.

For returning leaders who wish to retrain as they renew their license, the £50 “Renewal and retraining” option should be selected.

Why the Happiness Course?

The Happiness Course helps churches to love their neighbours by caring about their holistic wellbeing. Over 200 leaders have already been trained, and the course has been running regularly since 2013. In their own words:

"The course is really interesting, fun and challenging. It has challenged my perspectives of what happiness is." (Happiness Course leader, London)

"The training has helped me look at increasing community capacity and relationships in our church locality" (Happiness Course leader, Liverpool)

"I will learn to appreciate what I have been blessed with in life" (Participant, Poole)

"Happiness is accessible to everyone” (Participant, Kent)

Venue details:
