    Genealogy of Happiness

    1189 Cape Cod Rd, Stowe, VT 05672, USA
    1189 Cape Cod Rd, Stowe, VT 05672, USA

    On Sunday, September 10th at 4pm the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe (JCOGS) presents the “Genealogy of Happiness”, a Vermont Humanities talk by Professor William Edelglass

    What is happiness? Can it be measured? And what is the relationship between happiness and virtue, money, pleasure, relationships, mindfulness, and satisfaction?

    This program with William Edelglass will begin with an overview of different conceptions of happiness in Western philosophy, religion, and political theory. We will then turn to the numerous claims about what makes us happy based on the results of “the new science of happiness.” We will conclude by reflecting on the findings of positive psychology in the context of the history of the idea of happiness.

    William Edelglass teaches philosophy, environmental studies, and Buddhist studies at Marlboro College. He has published widely in Indian and Tibetan Buddhist philosophy, environmental philosophy, and 20th-century European thought. William has taught in diverse settings including the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, a federal prison in New York, and a Tibetan refugee settlement in Nepal. For many years he served as a wilderness guide at Outward Bound, and between 2000 and 2003 he taught Western philosophy to Tibetan monks at the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics in Dharamsala, India.

    This event at JCOGS is free, accessible, and open to the public. There will be light refreshments and conversation following the program. JCOGS is located at 1189 Cape Cod Road in Stowe. For more information please contact the JCOGS office at 802-253-1800 or go to JCOGS.org

    Horses are amazing, sentient, gentle beings that have a way of calming the soul and bringing inner peace to one’s self.   For those who are having a hard time in the grieving process, sometimes interaction with a horse can help where other interventions have fallen short. We are offering a 6 week support group program that will meet once a week for an hour.   Our intent is to keep the group small with no more than 6 participants plus volunteers and instructors. We will be able to provide referral resources if issues come up during sessions that someone would want to seek some professional guidance.
