The Mathematics of Happiness

As humans, our hopes, our hungers, and our happiness are the three major pre-occupations in life. Our ultimate life experiences therefore depend on these three things. Human happiness is the outcome of the right intensity of hunger and an adequate level of human hope. Participants will have the unusual opportunity to determine their level of hope, the intensity of their hunger, and their degree of happiness in order to determine where they are on the human happiness map. At the end of the session, participants should become aware of a daily routine that leads to sustainable happiness.

Dr. Alphonsus Obayuwana has been involved in the study of human hope and happiness since he was just a third year medical student. Post-medical school, in spite of a very busy OB/GYN practice, his interest in this subject matter continued for over 30 during which time he also held teaching faculty positions at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the University of Maryland College of Medicine, Eastern Virginia Medical School , and the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Today, he is the Founder and CEO of the Triple-H Project LLC, an entity solely dedicated to the promotion of hopeful and happier human communities. He is the author of the Five Sources of Human Hope, How to Live a Life of Hope, and the Mathematics of Happiness.
