Caroline Le Brun (Monash Health)
A fundamental part of choosing to create meaning is to consider the value that this has on one’s life. Various writings on meaning in life have suggested that the root of most common human unhappiness is a sense that one’s life has no meaning (Eckart 2014; Fortgang, 2014). This conclusion is echoed by empirical research which has demonstrated an association between a strong sense of meaning and life satisfaction and happiness, whilst a lack of meaning predicts depression and disengagement.
This seminar will explore the following questions:
How is spirituality considered in today’s world?
Can an inward path on the human journey create meaning?
How can we help individuals create meaning through spirituality?
