PLEASANTVILLE, NY, February 29, 2012 – What’s the secret to sustaining balance in a fast-moving society? What defines a “Good Life” and how do we get it?

These questions will be explored at the first event in the Pace University spring lecture series. “The Good Life: Your Guide to Living a Life You Love” will be a panel discussion on Thursday, March 8, 6:30pm – 8:30pm on Pace’s Pleasantville campus in the Gottesman room of the Kessel Student Center, 861 Bedford Rd., entrance 3. The event is free and open to the public. Media admission by press pass.

The panel discussion will be led by faculty member Ross Robak, Ph.D., chair of psychology and mental health counseling and director of the Master of Counseling program for Dyson College of Arts and Sciences at Pace. Robak will be joined by Pace psychology professors Anthony Mancini, Ph.D., and Paul Griffin, Ph.D.; Susan L. Maxam, University Director for Student Success from the Center for Academic Excellence at Pace; and financial expert Rosario Girasa, J.D., of Pace’s Lubin School of Business.

The evening’s panel discussion and Q&A will examine how to build a healthy, happy life – spiritually, mentally, physically and financially. The panel will explore society’s tendency toward increasingly busy lives made more complex by relationships, career ambitions, financial obligations and even technology. Technology allows for constant communication but comes with the burden of not being able to detach.

Future lectures in the spring series will include an Earth Month event in April on wildlife in Westchester and one in May on a documentary film, produced by Pace students, on the cork industry.
