Thank you for a most interesting course that gave me plenty to consider and a chance to rethink/confirm my own beliefs
- Jean McNally, Sarasota
I really enjoyed the video - it is well put together, and I learned some things I didn't know before.
I had never articulated the thought that freedom is only possible when you take responsibility for your own life, and that responsibility has to lead to compassion towards your fellow humans, for one to be really happy.
I'm going to carry that around and absorb it - it makes so much sense!
- Cathy Wagner, South Africa
Thank you. You have helped me sort out so many issues in my Life.
- Lynn Reisch
I am finding it is giving me a greater grounding in my decision making, along with explaining my reasoning to others. ... (I) did not realize what I was looking for was ethics, not theology, to answer my questions of why we should do things. ... Thanks for the guidance, ever much appreciated.
Living Simpler was definitely an interesting review of fundamental aspects of life that can benefit much from the humanist worldview, such as ethics, critical thinking and personal responsibility. Weekly themes of the course were well selected and clearly presented. I really enjoyed going through the course.

Jennifer Hancock's Living Made Simpler Course is a "must" for every humanist and for anyone who wishes to learn more about the Humanist worldview and life stance. I hope she will develop more of these courses in the future.

Hello and welcome to Living Made Simpler a Humanistic Life Skills Course
This is a 6 hour video course that will teach you all about how a Humanist goes about living a happy and fulfilling life.
Life isn’t easy. It is filled with challenges. How we navigate those challenges determines our success in life. If you want to learn more about how to be happy and how to think more effectively about the choices you make, this program will help.
What is Humanism?
Humanism is a highly effective approach to human development. It is as much concerned with personal development as it is with social responsibility. It is probably the most humane and holistic approach to ethical philosophy humanity has ever devised.
What will you learn?
I will teach you how to:
Make better decisions through critical thinking
Improve your interpersonal relationships through compassion
Infuse your life with meaning and purpose through ethics
It turns out that when you combine all these different techniques into one approach, you create something that is truly transformative. This is why some of the most influential people in modern history were or are Humanists. You will be amazed at how much easier life is when you make being ethical a priority.
But you already are pretty happy in your life, why should you get this course?
Simply put, this program is profound. Humanism is a powerfully transformative philosophy. Embracing and applying your ethics to your every day problem solving makes life A LOT easier.
While you already know how important ethics is, what this course will do for you is teach you HOW to be that person you know you should be all the time, but that you fail to be when you are stressed out, worried or angry.
How much time do you waste spinning your wheels on frustrating problems? How much time do you waste thinking "would've, could've, should've of?" Stop wasting time in frustration and take the time to learn how to be more calm, content and effective.
Humanism is not new. It has been taught in some form throughout the entirety of human history. All the great teachers we remember like Confucius, Buddha, Socrates and Jesus all taught a form of Humanism. It is a philosophy that teaches us to be compassionate, ethical and responsible in your life and using critical thinking to solve your problems
What do you get for your money?
My program contains six 1 hour lessons and includes lecture notes and handouts with links for further learning. Each lesson tackles a different aspect of the philosophy, including ethics, critical thinking, compassion, responsibility and coping.
Here is a sampling of the lessons:
The Best Part
The best part about this is that no magical thinking is required. Humanism is a very pragmatic approach to life. There is a reason why some of the most influential people throughout history have been Humanists. There is a reason why Humanists don’t struggle to find motivation in their lives. There is a reason why Humanists are able to find the optimism necessary to keep going when times are tough. There is a reason why Humanists are by and large extremely content with their lives and with who they are as human beings. And there is a reason why Humanists feel so plugged in and alive even when they are struggling.
And the reason for all that is: when you combine a compassion based ethics with critical thinking and a feeling of personal responsibility it changes how you approach life, the universe and everything. While the shift in your thinking will be subtle the implications for how you live your life and relate to other people will be dramatic.
Reasons to buy this course
Everyone who has taken the course has reported that the program was profound and that it not only helped them understand their person philosophy better, it also helps them live their philosophy more fully and not just give lip service to their values.
If you are not already a Humanist, this course will help you better define who it is you are and more importantly, who it is you want to be and why.
The skills I teach are pragmatic, easy to learn and effective. I had one student who, after the lesson on compassion, reported the next week just how profound it was to put it into practice because she had never really consciously chosen to transform her frustration into compassion before and the immediate positive effect of doing so was so powerful it gave her a lot to think about.
Get it Now - While you are Thinking About It!
There is no reason why you should delay learning this information. It is immediately applicable to every aspect of your daily life. This isn’t specialized information for the big issues of life. The power of this philosophy is that it helps you cope more effectively with the minutia of life.
For instance, how do you deal with your interpersonal relationships? How do you balance your competing responsibilities? How do you cope with shopping at the supermarket when you are in a rush and the person in front of you can’t seem to figure out how to use the card swipe? How can you learn how to be patient when you really aren’t. And how can you motivate yourself when you are feeling down.
These are things you are dealing with right now. Everyone is. So why not buy this program now and learn how to cope with all the little things in your life more effectively now.
The reason some of the most influential people in our society are Humanists is because Humanism works.
