Brought to you by The Institute for Applied Positive Research and Good Think Inc., The Happiness Advantage retreat will change your life!
In 2012, we held the retreat at Mohonk Mountain House. Mohonk Mountain House is a five-star Victorian castle built on spectacular cliffs above the deep-blue waters of Lake Mohonk, New York. Nestled in a pristine forest with beautiful winding trails, this resort and spa is the ideal destination for a weekend getaway.
For the next retreat, we expect to be heading to a similar, beautiful resort in the US.
