What does it take to be truly happy?
Is it the feeling of security and stability? Is it special, intense experiences and adventures? Is it material success, or does happiness lie in fulfilled relationships?
On the one hand, we might think that we live in an age of self-realization. In the West, material prosperity is more widespread than perhaps ever before in human history. And at the same time, burnout, stress, dissatisfaction and depression have become common diseases and are spreading.
So what is true happiness and what constitutes a deeply fulfilled life?
Happiness and contentment are indeed a complex issue, because as human beings we do not consist of only one basic need, or one level that needs to be fulfilled. In fact, there are seven basic aspects of our being, or basic human needs, that must be met in order to lead a truly happy, balanced and fulfilled life. And whenever we feel unhappy, or dissatisfied, it is because one of these seven types of happiness has been neglected.
This new seminar with Shai Tubali is an invitation to get to know the seven levels of happiness in depth, as the key to a truly fulfilled and happy life.
Why the search for happiness usually doesn’t work
What we lack is a deeper understanding of our human nature. Accordingly, our society overemphasizes and promotes certain aspects, such as material success and career, while the relevance of, for example, emotional fulfilment or spiritual transcendence is hardly recognized. Trying to conform to the societal ideal, we often suppress certain aspects of our being. We may even have lost contact with them altogether. This then leads to inner conflicts and can eventually even express itself in physical symptoms.
A second common misconception is that our search for happiness is directed entirely outwards. But the stability, recognition and emotional affirmation we seek on the outside can never be completely fulfilled by this world because it is constantly changing.
All that we are looking for, the stability, joy, confidence and love, are states that we experience within ourselves. We have only been so focused on the outside to activate these states because we do not understand how our human system works.
Through specific techniques and exercises, however, we will learn to activate our seven centres of consciousness. And as a result, we will come more and more into contact with a natural inner experience of stability, joy, confidence and so on. And this is where true happiness and freedom begin.
YOUR PATH TO HAPPINESS
The Seven Keys to Happiness
This seminar is an integrative and all-inclusive experience. This means that we will get to know ourselves from head to toe, from the root chakra to the crown chakra. So the major journey of this seminar takes us through the seven types of happiness.
First there is the awareness, the right understanding of the seven layers of our being and the seven types of happiness. And then we will learn how to get in touch with them and how to activate and awaken each chakra.
Abraham Maslow, the father of humanistic psychology, recognized that there are different levels of human happiness when he developed the pyramid of human needs. And his model has amazing parallels to the yogic chakra system. With specific techniques and exercises, we will experience the reality behind these models, and learn about a path to human fulfilment and realization.
The Seven-Day Chakra Path
The seven-day chakra path is a lifestyle routine that enables us to integrate the seven types of happiness, from the most earthly to the most spiritual, into our lives. It activates your seven chakras, making every week a powerful, spiritual and transformative experience. This is the ideal approach that enables us to integrate the seminar contents into everyday life.
Seven Chakra Personality Types
The Chakra Personality Types is a typology that explores the individual dimension of our chakra system: each of us is born with some of the chakras more active and empowered, with one of them as the core of our personality. Knowing our chakra personality, with its specific inclinations, is an essential key for a fulfilled and happy life.
