WRK226H Meaning, Purpose and Well Being

[0–0, 0 cr.]

“The Quest For Meaning Is The Key To Mental Health And Human Flourishing” Viktor Frankl. It is proven that Meaning is positively related to happiness, wellbeing, life satisfaction, resilience, coping skills, hope, gratitude, health, self-esteem and empowerment. A random living exempt from Meaning leads to Existential Vacuum that will affect your overall wellbeing. Happiness and pleasure are only a side effect of Meaning fulfillment and not the mere end. Finding and living your unique Meaning and Purpose is essential to your Life, to your Mental Health and to your Well Being! During the workshop we will be exploring:

  • The mandatory role of Meaning in Life
  • The Existential Vacuum
  • The danger of a life exempt from Meaning
  • Happiness, Pleasure and Balance and their relation to wellbeing
  • The “Healthy Tension”
  • The Meaning in challenges
  • The discovery of Meaning
  • The Assessment of your current Purpose status
