Happiness Coaching

In a ruined world…

Dark Systems Tours proposes to explore the latest methods of "happiness" coaching and the problems of positive psychology in the context of the current environmental crisis. It seems necessary to question whether these methods of learning happiness are invisible, as an ideology of amnesia that blinds us to the current environmental destruction?

Between the seminar and the performance, we propose practical exercises in order to experiment together with the latest methods of research on happiness in terms of coaching and artificial intelligence. The conference will be illustrated with clips from films on the history of positive psychology, the ideologies of the New Age movements and their influence in the field of marketing / greenwashing (with reference to our projects Nogo Voyages, LOPH laboratory, World Brain, Institute of Neoteny, The Cult of Stock, The Amnesia of Images and The Story of the Swimming Noodle Pool).
