How can virtue, psychology and spirituality help you flourish?

Only 20 % of the U.S. population appears to be flourishing - characterized by an enthusiastic commitment to personal and professional growth and resilience in the face of disappointments.

Psychologists traditionally focused on relieving depression and anxiety. Now, positive psychology aims to maximize positive emotions in the face of life's challenges through living a virtuous life.

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 experiences, prevent us from flourishing. With fresh insight, he will explore depression, anxiety and isolation, as well as various forms of impulsivity and addictions to processes (e.g. work, gambling, shopping, sex, etc.) and substances (e.g., food, alcohol, drugs, etc.).

These talks illustrate how Christian spiritual tools can powerfully supplement psychology to help flourish. You will gain specific guidelines and spiritual practices to cultivate gratitude, temperance, humility and forgiveness, among other key virtues, in the service of flourishing.

The series concludes with specific recommendations for cultivating and sustaining a spiritual path. The final talk addresses an issue of paramount importance in today's world, namely the call to exercise forgiveness.
