Where can I find out more on happiness on a nonscientific level ?

Asked by Anythingnew (46 points ) November 5th, 2012

I have been searching but I’d like maybe a book or watch a few lectures on the subject rather than looking around the internet for all the details.

Oh this triggers a memory of a recommendation I got. Marty Seligman started a positive psychology movement. I don’t have any names but I do remember youtubing a few lectures. I will have to get back to you on this.
Thanks for reminding me.

I know the subtitle includes the word “science” but Raising Happiness is a great site.

I would suggest Stanislav Grof and his book “Beyond the Brain” or on a lighter note maybe “The Adventure of Self Discovery”.

This is some real deep psychology stuff, but has some extremely interesting viewpoint on how to achieve deep levels of happiness and peace through inner transformation and through dealing with deep inner psychological blockages ALL people have.

It goes much deeper than cognitive or behavioralistic oriented approaches found in more mainstream “happines psychologies”.
