Many of us strive to flourish. But what exactly does this mean? What action can we take to flourish more often, both within ourselves and in our interaction with others?
Your coursework is designed to help you explore this concept within the three dimensions of I, We and Society. Within the dimension of I, you will explore how to improve the quality of your own life. Within the dimension of We, you will explore how to improve the quality of the lives of others in direct relationship with you. Within the dimension of Society, you will explore how to promote Integral Flourishing and significantly improve well-being within the larger community.
By the end of the program you will be able to:
- Use critical thinking skills to analyse the statistical significance of research, determine the effectiveness of interventions related to the promotion of well-being and formulate your own definition of Integral Flourishing
- Positively influence your own well being, optimize your potential and live a happier, healthier and more meaningful life
- Be able to effectively work with others to promote well-being in human society
