Life Coaching with Sunada
Happiness isn't just about pleasure. That's according to Matthieu Ricard, the Buddhist monk who's been dubbed "The Happiest Man in the World." Happiness, he says, is a way of being that's marked by a deep sense of flourishing. It's not the opposite of sadness. Rather, it's an inner strength that keeps us steady and thriving no matter how we're feeling, and whatever life throws our way.
How about you? Are you flourishing? Do you feel able to meet the ups and downs of life with calm and presence of mind? This is the heart of my work as a life coach -- to help you find the inner strength to thrive and grow, regardless of how life is going for you.
