Our friends at Seminars.ie are holding an exciting event with psychologist and mindfulness meditation teacher Susannah Healy TOMORROW, Wednesday April 14th, at 7.00 p.m. Irish time. We highly recommend tuning in!
Susannah will explore how research in wellbeing is already looking towards the next frontier – our spiritual health.
Our understanding of life’s meaning and purpose, originally given through religious membership, is being replaced by new phenomena such as “spiritual distress”, “purpose anxiety” and “learned meaninglessness”. Where will our collective eagerness to promote STEM subjects take us? How can we live a fully spiritual life that isn’t just for Sundays or the yoga mat? How can added responsibility give us our greatest chance of fulfilment? Susannah argues that for too long we have assumed spirituality to be a private matter. But if spirituality includes personal meaning, a sense of relatedness and our membership in nature, then it is a topic of global as well as personal importance. Spirituality is deeply personal, but it is not a private matter.
During the event, Susannah will explore how we can live a more spiritually fulfilled life at home and at work, in our streetscapes, our education and healthcare systems as well as in government.
How can we bring spirituality to the workplace?
