A Unified Theory of Happiness
An East meets West approach.
Andrea F. Polard Psy.D.
There are many temptations to organize our life around the experience of earlier trauma. But that may short-change the future—which starts by our envisioning something better.

Andrea F. Polard, Psy.D., is the author of A Unified Theory of Happiness.
Happiness is "full engagement in life", an energetic flow that connects us with the world, going beyond good and pleasurable feelings. The book is a practical guide for learning how to engage in the concrete world and realize our already existing engagement in the absolute world. Western and Eastern tools are presented with equal appreciation. One, they help build competencies in relationships and the pursuit of goals. Two, they teach open-mindedness and inner peace. Working with both ends of the human experience, with striving and being, trains the brain to love life fully.
