Asian Pacific American Festival Free Workshop: Joyful Living, Happy Life

May 20, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

As part of our Asian Pacific American Festival, follow the journey of four first-generation Asian-American pioneers in the area of Emotional Intelligence (EQ), family and parenting, and volunteerism in Joyful Living, Happy Life (this workshop is conducted in Mandarin)

Their path to success as new immigrants included many struggles with schooling, marriage, and raising children until finally integrating into American mainstream society. Starting with volunteerism; they cultivated friendships, studied hard, acquired a sense of identity and belonging, and assumed important responsibilities as community leaders.

In this process they never stopped learning, and used their own upbringings as tools to becoming speakers and authors. Together they founded a workshop Joyful Living Happy Life which takes place four times each year as well as Coffee, Tea & Chat which occurs every last Friday of the month at the San Marino Crowell Public Library. They also jointly authored a bilingual book, Practice Happiness: 7 Habits Of Joyful Living. Their goal has always been to inspire new immigrant families who have difficulty merging into the fast lane of American life.
