Would you like to be happier? Have you ever wondered how you could be happier and flourish more in your life? In my workshops I share evidence based research in Positive Psychology that can help you create a life that flourishes.


I offer an interactive, science based workshop that explores the strength based approach to positive psychology. We will discuss research on happiness for the purpose of developing improved personal well-being. My classes include class discussion, group interaction, fun activities, and personal reflection. I also share practical applications of this evidence based research that can be put to use immediately by the participants to help them live a full and meaningful life. My workshops consist of a one day introduction to Positive psychology to a six week or longer study where participants will acquire knowledge and practical tips they need to make positive changes in their lives.

The key concepts that will be discussed are: optimism, strengths, flow, gratitude, positive emotions, purpose and meaning, goal achievement, mind-body connections, relationships, choice, and lasting change.

In my interactive workshops participants will have the opportunity to learn:

  • why knowing and using strengths is important to happiness
  • what makes you feel really motivated
  • how can we gain a sense of fulfillment
  • what are the factors that allow us to live longer and healthier lives
  • how we can achieve better relationships in our lives
  • what tools can we use to increase our positivity

My workshops aim to introduce participants to the most affective strategies that they can adapt in their own lives to achieve a flourishing and fulfilling life.


Understand the fundamentals of positive psychology and how it can radically change the way we relate to ourselves and others—in terms of creativity, motivation, health and overall success.

Learn mind-body techniques that help enhance physical and mental health, and try some positive psychology techniques that are proven to lead to lasting change. Topics covered include identifying purpose, realizing dreams, setting goals, mind-body connection and developing thriving relationships. Life is full of choices. What do you choose?

My next workshop will be offered at the 92nd Street Y :

How to Age with Positivity

We all see people around us aging differently.

Some people seem to thrive, while others are resistant to aging and afraid. What makes these people different? How can we thrive when we age? Get the answer to these questions and discover what steps you can take to replace the prevailing image of aging with a new vision — one in which we can see the possibility of living each day with passion, radiant health, optimism, energy, clarity and joy at all stages of your life.


6 Wednesdays, September 13 – October 18, 2017 5:30 p.m., Cooper Hall Board Room (RMP205)

Many of us are interested in living happier and more fulfilled lives. These six sessions will draw on the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology, as well as wisdom passed down through the ages.

Through discussion, small projects, and class activities, we will learn strategies that can be applied directly to our lives to help us flourish and … be happy.

Beating the Blues with Eva Centeno – CBS News

thank you!
really great class

Eva – class was great! I don’t usually share a lot about myself with people but it’s nice to do that and have people do the same with me. My love of learning I guess 🙂

Hi. From start to finish, it was wonderful!! I had no idea, like  most people, what Positive Psychology was or had even heard of it. I’ve learned a lot about myself and how to improve on who and what I am. Never stop growing or learning.
You are a great teacher (not to mention a great person), because you’re not one of those lecturers who just reads from prepared notes, and that’s one of the many things that made the class interesting and fun!  S….
Cultivating Gratitude Class:
Thank you Eva! It truly was a wonderful group and class. Really made a positive impact in my life and I am so grateful. HW
