What does it mean for a life to go well? What do I need to do to lead a life worth living? What does it mean for life to feel good?
During this 7-week program, we will engage in dialogue with leaders of philosophical and faith traditions to explore how each imagines a life worth living (Utilitarianism, the Buddha, the Torah and the Hebrew prophetic and wisdom writers, Jesus of Nazareth, Muhammad, and Technology/Scientific Humanism).
We will also engage with contemporary individuals who understand their lives to be shaped by each of these traditions and enriched by practices such as mindfulness meditation, generosity, doing the most good you can through personal choices, compassion, rest, prayer, and forgiveness.
The program includes a retreat that invites you to reflect on your own worldview and approach to the questions under consideration and to enter a process of discerning the good life. During the last session, participants will be asked to articulate their own personal vision of a life worth living.
