Celebrate the International Day of Happiness at The World Happiness Summit this Friday, March 18 through Sunday, March 20 at the University of Miami. The 3-day event analyzes happiness from different angles, on an individual, relationship, organizational, workplace, education and community level, teaching attendees how to implement evidence-based tools to create a sustainable happiness practice.
Explore the six elements of well-being for a holistic approach to happiness. This includes mindfulness, fostering healthy living practices, finding meaning in your personal and professional life, creating and maintaining strong relationships, and more. The event will have simultaneous translation to Spanish at the in-person event and will also be live streaming.
Founder Karen Guggenheim had her ‘aha’ moment after her husband suddenly died from the flu and four days later, she had challenges figuring out what to do and how to be happy from the core. She quit her job and created the company WOHASU in 2016. Partnering with doctor Sandro Formica, Guggenheim developed a corporate training including the Chief Happiness Officer program co-certified with Florida International University’s Chaplin School of Hospitality Management, fostering positive culture at work. Under her leadership, WOHASU®, LLC was awarded with the “Key of the City of Miami,” by the Miami Mayor and the members of the Miami City Commission.
The summit days will begin at 7:30 am with an hour of yoga, and go all day with sessions that include sound bowl meditation, experiential breakout sessions on laughter, and group work with professional coaches for a holistic approach in different areas of life.
