Life Before Death: The Psychology of Flourishing
The Christian tradition has often focused on life after death rather than living this life to the full. 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 5 dimensions: positive emotions; positive relationships; engagement; meaning; and accomplishment. All of these are underpinned by character.
This workshop will introduce and explain this approach to flourishing in life before death with examples and practical exercises, and will make the link with our Christian faith and Ignatian spirituality. We shall also look at applying this as a psychology for dealing with tough times.
