Share Positive Psychology - new ideas for happier living

Event Details

Join us for an inspiring and thought-provoking evening to explore exciting new discoveries from the science of happiness.

Leading experts Dr Itai Ivtzan and Dr Tim Lomas will share the latest findings from the new "second wave" of Positive Psychology research.

They will explain the unexpected benefits of embracing the darker side of life - and how we can learn to harness our difficult experiences and feelings to cope better and get more out of life.

Covering themes such as meaning, resilience, mortality, change, suffering and spirituality, Itai and Tim will show us how the challenging times in life can ultimately lead to us to greater growth, insight, healing and transformation. 

"Your negative feelings may not only be natural and normal, but may even be pathways to the very happiness and flourishing that you seek"

~ Dr Tim Lomas

About The Speakers

Dr Itai Ivtzan and Dr Tim Lomas are both psychologists and lecturers on the Masters in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) at University of East London (UEL). They have published a wide range of books and journal papers.

Dr Ivtzan's main areas of research are spirituality, mindfulness, meaning, and self-actualisation. Dr Lomas' areas of research interest include 'second wave' positive psychology, cross-cultural lexicography and mindfulness/Buddhism.

Their recent books include Second Wave Positive Psychology, The Positive Power of Negative Emotions and Awareness Is Freedom.

"If we befriend both psychology and spirituality, and succeed in introducing them into our lives, we gain super-strengths of awareness, courage, resilience, and compassion"

~ Dr Itai Ivtzan
