Finding Purpose and Meaning In Life: Living for What Matters Most

Description

Welcome to Finding Purpose and Meaning in Life: Living for What Matters Most!

In this course, you’ll learn how science, philosophy and practice all play a role in both finding your purpose and living a purposeful life. You will hear from historical figures and individuals about their journeys to finding and living a purposeful life, and will walk through different exercises to help you find out what matters most to you so you can live a purposeful life.

As an added benefit, you will also have complimentary access, for a period of time, to the Purposeful App. This groundbreaking mobile and desktop app is designed to help you build a purposeful rhythm into each day, so you can bring your best self to what matters most. Look for more information in Week 1 of the course!

By the end of this course, you will:
1. Understand that having a strong purpose in life is an essential element of human well-being.
2. Know how self-transcending purpose positively affects well-being.
3. Be able to create a purpose for your life (don't be intimidated, this is different from creating "the purpose" for your life).
4. Apply personal approaches and skills to self-change and become and stay connected to your purpose every day.

We are thrilled that you are here! We look forward to hearing and learning from you throughout this course!
