The Four Pathways to a Fulfilling Life

Four Wednesdays: Oct 5, 12, 19, 26 - 7:00 p.m.

This series of four free lectures by Dr. Thomas Tam will center on “Life Fulfillment,” which can only begin when one is willing to dedicate oneself and embrace the concept of “good look,” “good health,” and “good mood.”  The lectures will put the spotlight on how mindfulness and happenstances are intertwined in our daily lives; how thoughts profoundly affect mood and behavior; with techniques we can employ to modify our thinking, and in the process, change our lifestyle and habits, and how to utilize these acquired skills to attain a healthier and happier life. 

Some techniques and specific approaches will be demonstrated during class, and participation of attendees is highly encouraged. Various assignments will also be suggested to help augment some of these very important concepts under discussion.  Information and lecture materials used and discussed are based on contemporary scientific research and quotations from various cultural classics, respected philosophers and time-honored wisdoms. Together, they will form a solid platform that will enable attendees to interpret, challenge and confront the insurmountable demands of modern day society in a reasonable and realistic manner. 

Thomas Tam, M.D. is President of the Chinese American Foundation for Education and an Emeritus Clinical Associate Professor, OB-GYN at the USC School of Medicine.  In a long and distinguished career, he has been the Medical Director for the Los Angeles Chinatown Family Planning Clinic, Chief of Staff at the Garfield Medical Center as well as Chairman of their Education Committee.

Come to Crowell Public Library and be inspired to live a healthier and happier life.
