In this 5-day workshop, former monk Caverly Morgan uses meditation, guided imagery, experiential exercises, journaling, and group discussion to illuminate the happiness that can only come from within.

What do we want more than happiness? We all long for it. It’s the core desire underneath all of our searching.

Likely you realize it can't be found externally. You may have tried to find it through forms of self-help. You've read inspiring books by great teachers. You've resonated with their wisdom. And yet you struggle to live by these truths in your daily life.

The Bridge to Happiness program supports us in living from truth. It's an accessible and informative course that integrates the world's greatest wisdom teachings. It shows you how to align your life with your deepest understanding.

The Bridge to Happiness is founded in the revolutionary understanding that your true nature is wholeness, awareness, and unconditional love. When we wake up to our true nature, our lives transform. Then contemplative practice is no longer founded on striving and searching, rather the alignment of all aspects of your life with your realization.

The Bridge to Happiness program involves a five-step process:

Directing the AttentionRecognizing the Conditioned MindAccessing the Compassionate Mentor WithinMoving Beyond the Duality of Self and LifeKnowing Oneself as Awareness
