Happier-- Learn the Secrets to Daily Joy and Lasting Fulfillment
Tal Ben-Shahar, Ph.D."It is easy to see how this is the backbone of the most popular course at Harvard University today." Martin E.P. Seligman, author of Learned Optimism.

Ben-Shahar recommends meditation and a spirital orientation for finding more happiness. Those who are open to that approach might also find this useful:

The Way of Ignatius

A five-day programme of prayer
to lead you a little deeper into Ignatian spirituality

Tuesday 31st July is the Feast of St Ignatius of Loyola, who founded the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) in 1540, with nine companions.

Last year, for the week running up to the Feast of St Ignatius, Pray-as-you-go, the Jesuit website, took the form of a five-day "Novena" (using the term a little loosely!) - a programme of meditations in the Ignatian tradition, with each day building on the previous one, allowing the user to go a little deeper than is usually possible with the short, daily prayer sessions.

This year Pray-as-you-go has chosen to make this programme available again, but now as a permanent feature, separate from the daily sessions.

The five prayer sessions are available at in MP3 and WMA format, separately or in a single ZIP file.

If you decide to do this, please email me at and let me know, so that I can pray for you, OK? And please pray for me as I am doing it starting this morning, looking for guidance in my work and engagement & marrage with Mary.
