Please join Melissa Studdard and Tiferet Journal on 10/2/13, from 7-7:30 PM EST, for a conversation with author, psychologist, and Zen practitioner, Dr. Andrea F. Polard. Studdard and Polard will discuss Polard’s book, A Unified Theory of Happiness: An East-Meets-West Approach to Fully Loving Your Life a groundbreaking synthesis of Western thinking and Eastern philosophy.

Polard started her meditation practice and interest in psychology at age sixteen. Having endured childhood trauma, happiness was on her mind early on, as she wondered whether she and her fellow-sufferers could really be happy. In pursuit of answers, Polard earned two master's degrees in clinical psychology, one from Freie University and another from Ryokan College, where she also earned a doctorate in psychology.

When Dr. Polard discovered that happiness was indeed possible for all, she decided to share the necessary, consciousness-building skills for it. As writing had long been a passion, she soon started on A Unified Theory of Happiness -- a project that took her twelve devoted years to complete. It is a book that is not only to inform, but delight the reader.

Dr. Polard is also the founder of the Los Angeles Center for Zen Psychology, which offers Zen psychotherapy, consultations, workshops, training, and meditation groups, based on both Western and Eastern thought.
