Dear CTH Community,


Here are two things I'm really excited about and want to share with you: Transformation (1) Superb Science (Sonja) and (2) Suberb Journalism (Charles Duhigg-NYT).

First:  On July 24th, Sonja Lyubomirsky, Ph.D. is launching her new MentorCoach MasterClass "The How, What, and Why of Happiness".

Sonja is Professor of Psychology at the University of California--Riverside and author of the best selling "The How of Happiness".


She will teach our class via phone.  It's open to everyone, on 8 Thursdays [1:00 pm EST] in July and September.  The early registration fee expires at midnight, Wednesday, July 23, 2008.




"But I'm leaving on vacation," you say.  That excuse does not work here.

  1. The class only meets twice in July.  The rest of the course is in September or after.
  2. Every class is recorded.  You won't miss anything, ever.
  3. You can call in from anywhere in the world.
  4. Sonja is a gifted teacher--just listen to her interviews.
  5. She's excited about the class--you'll be excited too. (I am).
  6. There will be a class website which will have her PowerPoints, notes, all class recordings, and links to other goodies.  You can access them at any time until the end of the class.
  7. For more information, click here. 

Second:  Very exciting.  All CTH readers have a special invitation from award winning journalist, Charles Duhigg of the New York Times. 


He is looking for people who have transformed their lives, who have helped others transform theirs, and who have studied transformative change, itself.


Where better to begin than among the members of the CTH community?





Ben Dean, Ph.D.


P.S.  You can join Sonja in a special, free teleconference call about the class on Tuesday, July 22nd, at 8:00 pm ET.   If you can't come, you'll get a tape of the call. You can register here.
