Happiness, Satisfaction, Contentment are a group of words, concepts, that we are regularly asked to evaluate on a day to day basis. Not necessarily specifically asked; Non the less asked either by ourselves in some way in those moments of introspection or unconsciously asked by all the media we expose ourselves to. Question posed is are you Happy/Unhappy?

There is a massive psychological body of evidence that suggests we can be primed ( think mesmerism, television or a casual question like are you unhappy? ) to act and behave in a certain way that is semi-predisposed in our response. We will mostly think this is our own internally, even consciously generated responses. Mostly I think we are not entirely correct with that assumption. OK, so why not?

Who Influences Your Thoughts?

This is simple. Because we are constantly interacting with the living environment or interacting with our memories and perceptions of our experience. So succinctly we are products of our experience and we are unconsciously influenced within our experience and thoughts so please do not disregard outside influences.

The idea of this Trance Cafe is to firstly explore some of the extents of how outside influences can shape our experience and thoughts. Secondly we will explore what happiness ( or the lack of ) is.

Using ideas from Imagine – Johah Leherer and Daniel kahneman’s excellent book, Thinking Fast and Thinking Slow and his TED talk Memory vs Experience we will form and shape ideas about what happiness is and how we can make a more informed assessment of ‘am I happy?’
