What are the sources of a happy, meaningful life for you?
How do you decide who you want to associate with, which behaviors and activities you want to engage in? What motivates and guides your choices? How might these be changing as you create the next chapters of your life?
We’ll dig into how our decisions are shaped by our experience, mind-sets, and values. We’ll explore the neurobiology of our need for safety and connection, the cognitive and affective components of well-being and resilience and the character of risks we are willing to take. We’ll look at a model of wholehearted living and how to cultivate the qualities of a happy and fulfilling life.
Ultimately, this exploration will create a kind of practical and personal guide you can use to make these important choices – choices that will enable you to identify and align your behaviors and actions with what really matters to you - to create a fulfilling and happy life for yourself.
