"It is difficult to find happiness within oneself, but it is impossible to find it anywhere else."


- Arthur Schopenhauer

Human life is a journey of opposites. Gain & Loss, Pleasure & Pain, Joy & Sorrow, Celebration & Tragedy.

Happiness is not eradicating the unfavorable half of the human equation, nor achieving fleeting states of sensual joy, emotional excitement, or intellectual stimulation.

Happiness is self-sufficiency. It permits us to accept our inner and outer lives as they are, as we work enthusiastically to improve them.

Vedanta philosophy provides the theory and practice for self-sufficiency. We learn to assess, analyze, and govern our experiences, cultivating healthy mental states that serve our authentic self, each other, and the environment.


The instructors for this workshop, Glen and Nathalie Callahan, studied Vedanta Philosophy full time at The Vedanta Academy in India for a combined total of twelve years. They run Vedanta Institute Los Angeles, a registered non-profit which promotes intellectual development through classes, workshops, seminars, and retreats throughout Los Angeles and San Diego.
