Is This the Secret to Happiness?

July 28, 2022

Lifespan Director Dr. Robert Waldinger shares his combined wisdom from his practices in psychiatry, research, and zen:

“I have the privilege of looking at the experience of being human through three different lenses. As a psychiatrist, I share in the lives of people who come to my office yearning to be known and understood. As a researcher, I shepherd the eighty-four-year study of adult life and happiness known as the Harvard Study of Adult Development, watching how hundreds of individual life journeys progress from adolescence all the way to old age. And as a Zen practitioner, I see the arisings of my own heart and mind as I struggle to bring my awareness to the present moment.”
