The mission of HSA is to lead the happiness revolution, by educating
leaders who are themselves dedicated to personal, interpersonal,
and communal flourishing. We define happiness as the experience of
wholeperson wellbeing, or in short, the experience of wholebeing.
The five elements essential to a life of wholebeing
are: spiritual, physical, intellectual, relational, and
Emotional. Taken together, these elements make up
the acronym SPIRE, and indeed they inspire all of our
programs-from our introductory lectures on happiness
to the one-year Certificate in Happiness Studies.
