16 Guidelines to a Meaningful Life

I consider ethics to consist less of rules to be obeyed than of principles for inner self-regulation to promote those aspects of our nature which we recognize as conducive to our own well-being and that of others.” —His Holiness the Dalai Lama

In these challenging times the search for happiness can seem endless, especially if we’re looking for it in the outside world. Yet some people always seem to be at peace, content, and happy, no matter what happens. What’s their secret? The 16 Guidelines are a set of practical tools for developing happiness and meaning in everyday life. They provide a simple, robust, and flexible framework for developing empathy, compassion, and resilience. Inspired by a 7th-century Tibetan text, these guidelines offer a presentation of universal wisdom suitable for people of all ages, cultures, and traditions. Presented through a mixture of exercises, group work, and discussion, the 16 Guidelines program offers a range of practical tools and resources designed to promote awareness and mindfulness of the way we think, speak, act, and find meaning in life. The guidelines range from generosity to courage — familiar yet profound qualities that take us to the heart of what it means to be a caring, fulfilled human being. All materials are backed by evidence-based research and the latest breakthroughs in everything from mindfulness to neuroscience. Benefits include:

  • mindfulness and self-awareness
  • emotional intelligence and resilience
  • empathy, kindness, and social responsibility
  • harmonious and caring relationships
  • a greater sense of well-being and purpose

This mind-opening workshop offers an experiential approach to a happier life through wisdom, compassion, and mindfulness, fundamental aspects of awakening our highest potential. Join us for a lively, engaging, and challenging experience!
