Fairfield Happiness Club meeting, Sept. 12

The presentation Knowing = Happiness, by Alice Katz, will be held on Thursday, Sept. 12, from 7-8:45 p.m.

Katz is a reality-based psychotherapist in Fairfield, who also lives a reality-based life. Since 1979, she has offered counseling to individuals and couples on relationship and emotional issues. She will show that “The truth shall set me free” is truer than “Ignorance is Bliss,” whether it is about health, nutrition, relationships or anything else. Even though the truth may be more painful or scarier than living in denial, knowing the truth about anything is powerful. When you really know, you are set free and that sense of power and freedom is happiness. Hiding from the truth keeps you in a state of bondage in the end.

Everyone is welcome; admission is free. Meet people using happiness in their lives. Learn to have the peace of mind you need and experience happiness now.
