Spirituality, Psychology, and Virtue: Your Guide to a Flourishing Life
Spirituality, Psychology, and Virtue: Your Guide to a Flourishing Life0 0 5 Scritto da: John J. Cecero Letto da: John J. Cecero
Flourishing is characterized by an enthusiastic commitment to personal and professional growth and resilience in the face of disappointment. Sadly, only 20% of the US population appears to be flourishing by this definition.
Psychologists traditionally focused on relieving depression and anxiety. Now, positive psychology helps you maximize positive emotions in the face of life's challenges by living a virtuous life.
You’ll explore the role of Christian spirituality in living a virtuous – and therefore flourishing – life. Your guide, pioneering psychologist, professor, and Jesuit priest John J. Cecero, applies concepts from his book, Praying Through Lifetraps: A Psycho-Spiritual Path to Freedom to explain how lifetraps—core fears and insecurities—prevent us from flourishing. With fresh insight, he will explore depression, anxiety, and isolation, as well as various forms of impulsivity and addiction.
These talks illustrate how Christian spiritual tools can powerfully supplement psychology to help you flourish. You will learn specific guidelines and spiritual practices that will allow you to cultivate gratitude, temperance, humility, and forgiveness, among other key virtues.
The series concludes with specific recommendations for developing and sustaining a spiritual path, with the final talk addressing an issue of paramount importance in today’s world: the call to forgive.
