"The HSA program
has holistically changed my life

.....What an amazing experience.....Tal is an extraordinary teacher!

It represents the most profound learning experience I have ever engaged. And as a Vice President and General Manager for a fortune 50 company, I was exposed to very electric, dynamic and forward thinking educational programs. And none of them resinated with me like The HSA field of studies program..I am completely committed to the Happiness revolution!

"I wanted to express my deepest gratitude for this course"

It is amazing. I am thrilled to be a part of this program. Each week I am excited to dive into the new material with anticipation. This program lights me up and opens my mind to possibilities. It confirms how I have felt about the importance of the mind body connection. It also is not coincidental that I have just began my three year studies of somatic experiencing practitioner certification. Just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you!!!! With deepest gratitude"

"This course should
be a “sweet obligation” for every top manager"

"We all know that things arrive in our life at the right moment, but having worked in the first steel global company (ArcelorMittal) and later as the CEO of its global foundation for many years, I wish I would have known then what I learned with Tal Ben-Shahar. I would have suffered less, I would have understood more... Companies would spend less money in coaching their executives suffering from burn-out. Nevertheless, now that I am walking new paths I am applying all have learned to live with a deeper happiness! Thank you Tal!
