Howard C. Cutler, M.D.

Howard C. Cutler, M.D., is a psychiatrist, bestselling author, and speaker. He is considered one of the world’s leading experts on the science of human happiness, and has dedicated his life to helping people lead happier and more rewarding lives.   Dr. Cutler is co-author with the Dalai Lama of the internationally bestselling The Art of Happiness book series. Now a beloved classic, the groundbreaking first volume of the series, The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living, spent 97 weeks on The New York Times bestsellers list, and went on to become a source of help and inspiration to millions across the globe. Continuing their collaboration, the Dalai Lama and Dr. Cutler followed this with two other highly successful books, The Art of Happiness at Work and The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World.  Their fourth book is currently in progress.    These books present a practical, science-based approach to happiness that is tempered with common sense and reason. Translated into 50 languages, they have helped readers from all backgrounds and faiths find greater happiness, using an approach that bridges East and West.  As the Dalai Lama explains, “We attempted to present to the reader a systematic approach to achieving greater happiness and overcoming life’s inevitable adversities and suffering. Our approach combines and integrates, hopefully, the best of East and West—that is Western science and psychology on the one hand and Buddhist principles and practices on the other.”   Seeking to expand the scope of “The Art of Happiness (AOH) Method” beyond the book series, Dr. Cutler has developed a variety of evidence-based AOH workshops, courses, and personal training programs. By drawing upon his years of collaboration with the Dalai Lama as well as new research in neuroscience and positive psychology, he has united ancient Eastern wisdom with modern Western science to create a highly effective method of cultivating greater happiness.    Whether he is working with private individuals, consulting with businesses, giving keynote presentations, or leading workshops for professional groups or general audiences, Dr. Cutler has a passion for helping others achieve greater happiness and success in life.  He has enjoyed speaking to audiences throughout America and abroad, and has been interviewed on hundreds of radio and television programs, as well as in popular publications such as Time and O Magazine.
