Too often in spirituality and faith 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 one day workshop Roger Dawson SJ, a Jesuit priest, clinical psychologist and Director of St Beuno’s Jesuit Spirituality Centre, 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.

The day will start at 10am and finish at 4.30pm.
