What is my purpose? How can I be happy? For thousands of years, people have pondered these big questions, often finding the answers elusive. Those looking for happiness won’t find it on a shop shelf, says Peter Stimpson, an Episcopal priest and experienced therapist. Stimpson doesn’t claim to have all the answers, but he will share a wealth of wisdom he has learned by counseling and ministering to people for age 35 and older with members of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce at the Business Before Business Breakfast Meeting on Wednesday, June 17, from 7:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. at the Nassau Club, 6 Mercer Street. Cost to attend is $20 for Chamber members and $30 for non-members and walk-ins. Reservations can be made at www.princetonChamber.org or calling 609-924-1776.
Happiness is not a product you buy, but a process of becoming who you are by how you relate to others, says Stimpson. His presentation will focus on three principles — insecurity, power, and success that guide one’s choices in this process.
“Peter Stimpson is well-known in the Princeton community as a therapist and also from his familiar family advice column in the Town Topics. We look forward to his perspective on success and happiness,” says Chamber president Peter Crowley.
Peter Stimpson has counseled people from all walks of life since 1972, has written a popular advice column since 1983, and now a book entitled “Map To Happiness: Straightforward Advice on Everyday Issues”. He has been the executive director of Trinity Counseling Service since 1989.
