Florida Atlantic University’s Peace Studies Program in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters and the FAU School of Social Work, along with Peaceful Mind Peaceful Life Series, present the lecture “Happiness: Making Your Heartbeats Count,” by author and researcher Dan Baker, PhD. The lecture takes place Saturday, February 9, at 2 p.m., in the University Theatre, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus.


“It is within almost everyone’s capacity to be happier,” said Baker. “Happiness is key to success, health and meaningful relationships. Indeed, our quality of life is directly proportional to the accumulation of happy moments.”

Author of What Happy People Know: How the New Science of Happiness Can Change Your Life for the Better, Baker has been at the grassroots level in a national initiative known as Positive Psychology. The scientific study of human strengths, virtues and character, Positive Psychology investigates what is right with people, their organizations and institutions.
