Learn about life's myths on happiness

Learn about life's myths on happiness

Commonly held myths about happiness and life will be discussed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Café, 3101 Campus Drive.

The program, "Life's Myths: What You Believe That's Wrong," features a filmed interview with Oliver Burkeman, author of "The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking."

"There's a certain kind of positive thinking that actually has the opposite effect," said Burkeman, who debunks common myths about what leads to happiness.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
