Flourish : Applying Positive Psychology to your Life

Flourishing is a state of good mental and physical health, free from illness and distress, but most importantly filled with vitality, meaning, positive emotions, engagement and connectedness. Flourishing is the goal of positive psychology, which is defined as the “scientific study of what makes life most worth living” (Peterson, 2008)

Interested in getting there? We’re delighted to announce Flourish, a set of 6 short workshops. These sessions are designed to not just help you reflect on the nature of happiness, but also act in ways that will make you flourish. You will learn numerous surprisingly simple ideas to enhance your well-being and the well-being of those around you. While these are simple, they have been subjected to the test of scientific method, and are profoundly impactful. Flourishing requires effort, but you will find it encouraging to know that with systematic action anyone can flourish.

Between the sessions you will do weekly, experiential exercises. Some of these involve being mindful, developing gratitude, reframing negative events, forgiving, using strengths, savouring moments, strengthening social networks, finding your best self and doing altruistic acts.

If you are a coach or psychotherapist or leader, you will find these approaches of positive psychology invaluable in helping those you work with flourish. To make it easy for you to participate, we have designed the program as 6 sessions of 90 minutes each, done on Zoom. Priced at Rs.6200/- (including GST) per person for the 6 sessions, we hope the program is not just affordable but irresistible. Coaches who attend, can account for these as 9 hours of Resource Development Units (to be applied towards maintaining your credential).
