Join one of the world’s most influential psychologists in exploring the transformative powers of positivity.

The Dalai Lama declared that “the purpose of our lives is to be happy.” Indeed, prioritizing positivity can boost your health and well-being in powerful ways. And when positivity resonates between you and others, it strengthens your relationships and communities, making them kinder and more compassionate, more supportive of everyone’s health and well-being.

In this remarkable 15-lecture audio course, Dr. Barbara Fredrickson—celebrated professor, best-selling author, TED Talk Celebrity, and leading positive psychology expert—shows you how to enhance your awareness of fleeting states of emotional uplift to help balance your brain’s built-in bias toward the negative. You’ll learn how even subtle positive emotions – like enjoyment, gratitude, serenity, and awe – can expand your awareness and ignite upward spirals of growth within you.

Dr. Frederickson, recipient of the Tang Prize for Achievements in Psychology, is the author of Positivity, Love 2.0, and more than 130 peer-reviewed articles in the field of positive psychology. Through her exceptional lectures, you will learn to challenge the reflexive habit of seeing emotions

Through her exceptional lectures, you will learn to challenge the reflexive habit of seeing emotions as “belonging” to individuals (e.g., your joy, her anger). You’ll find that emotions, especially positive emotions, can often more accurately be described as “belonging” to the collective, and see how this resonance of positivity might well be the most elemental building block of love.
