This one-day course on happiness takes place at Aqua Aura’s facilities in Calle Padilla, in the Lista district , Madrid.

4. Higher Programme in Emotional Intelligence (PsychoBiological Institute)
Happiness depends largely not on what happens to us, but on the way we learn to interpret what happens to us, and to modulate the emotions that it arouses in us.
For this reason, this Master’s Degree from the Instituto PsicoBiológico is very useful, since it provides the keys to mastering certain skills related to Emotional Intelligence and everything related to the management of emotions: it is not a question of avoiding feeling uneasy, but rather of implementing strategies so that our emotions bring us closer to our objectives .
