Life Before Death: The Psychology of Flourishing
Too often in spirituality we have only been concerned with life after death. Recent research in psychology has focussed on flourishing and what makes life worth living. Psychology of flourishing proposes that we need to do well along five dimensions: positive emotions; positive relationships; engagement; meaning; and accomplishment. All of this is underpinned by character. During this weekend Roger Dawson, a spiritual director and clinical psychologist, will introduce and explain this approach to flourishing as life before death with examples and practical exercises, and will make the link with our faith and Ignatian spirituality. We shall also look at applying this as a psychology for dealing with tough times.
This weekend will not be in silence, but there will be opportunities for silence, prayer and reflection. The retreat begins at 6.30pm, (bedrooms are available from 4pm). Please try to arrive between 4pm and 5pm to have time to settle in. The retreat finishes about 4pm on the Sunday.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT AN INDIVIDUALLY GUIDED RETREAT AND SO YOU WILL NOT BE ASSIGNED A SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR
