Happiness is a buzzword that’s everywhere these days. But what does it really mean? Is it just about smiley faces and “positive thinking”? Can you really, truly get happier and stay happier? Hannah Sentenac will answer your burning questions in her heart-to-heart talk about the science of happiness, beating depression and living a joyful life at the Bookstore in the Grove, Nov 25th.

Despite our society’s increasing material wealth, more people than ever are bogged down by depression, anxiety and a feeling of alienation. For millions of folks, happiness can feel like an unrealistic, impossible dream. But Hannah’s message is that there’s always hope for a happier life, and we all have the power to change.

As a Happiness Advocate, Hannah speaks about happiness, embarks on happiness-focused projects and writes about happiness for publications including the Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, Live Happy magazine and her blog, HannahGetsHappy.com.

Expect a wildly entertaining talk with plenty of audience participation; interactive, science-based exercises to get you started on your happiness journey; a happiness reading list and loads of amusing anecdotes. Hannah will also introduce her exciting new interactive art installation, The Happy Wall, going up in Cocowalk on November 29th!

Admission is free! Attendees can snag a glass of wine and an empanada from the bookstore’s yummy cafe, pick a seat and jump headfirst into a happiness movement. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 25.

David Halpern is a local consultant who has been involved with the finances of nonprofits for more than thirty years.

After briefly discussing alternatives such as philanthropy and earned income, this session will focus on grants that are available from foundations and corporations. Changes in the philanthropic landscape and what funders are now looking for will be discussed by a panel.

Participants will have the opportunity to question the panelists and get practical advice on how to improve their chances of winning grants.

CreativeMornings Miami Chance 11/14/14

CreativeMornings/Miami: CHANCE!
chanceNovember 14, 8:30am – 10:00am
Miami Center for Architecture and Design (MCAD)
100 NE 1st Ave
Miami, Florida 33132

Take a CHANCE ! Taking a chance is at the heart of every CreativeMornings chapter. It’s a chance the organizers take to start their own chapter, the chance a speaker takes to share their story and, of course, the chance the attendees take to get up early in the morning and listen.

This November, we’re celebrating those uncertainties and risks with the theme of Chance and our speaker Robin Hill, photographer for architecture and design.

2014 begins my 28th year as a professional photographer. Back in 2006 I had the good fortune of spending a few hours with my hero, Julius Shulman at the opening of the Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. He was 96 years old and still working and was in his 7th decade as a photographer which always helps to give me some perspective. (which as an Architectural Photographer is a very handy thing!) I’m deeply passionate about my chosen field and strongly believe in the power of design to affect our lives in a profound way. I see myself as being an integral part of the design community and my tool is photography. I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with some of the top names in the field, and much of the force of their creative work is displayed throughout the website.
