I got back from New York City last night. There is a pond in Central Park there, full of turtles! It's like a lake of dancing giggles.
We did our first train the trainer session for Open Center in NYC, and gave a talk. The house was not packed, but it was truly the quality not quantity of people. The Executive Director of Open Center attended our talk on Friday night – his birthday! And then he came back on St. Patrick’s day for the class. Here is what he said: "My sense that this is the wave of the future was only strengthened by my experience with the Happiness Initiative.”
Guess who else came to our talk? Jon Hall, formerly of the OECD and currently working at the United Nations on…measuring progress!!! Well, wow.
It was such an honor to spend time with these people, and to be able to talk about the project and facilitate them in the steps of a Happiness Initiative in NYC. It was also really cool to see the turtles.
I have so much I want to blog about, and so much is going on, but ran out of daylight, and will soon run out of night too, so best wait for tomorrow. In the meantime, here is a sneak preview of the newsletter we will issue tomorrow:
