One can never stop learning or improving life. That is meaningful living for me. I found another facet of that search. Friends would certainly appreciate the lifestyle offered by such a simple but profound ideology.
The Meaningful Living Project
Drs. Paul and Lillian Wong (PhD) have been conducting free classes on living a meaningful life. The class meet weekly and are given study materials online and a series of lecture topics live. The participants are then invited to relate their personal issues and offered suggestions with group therapy-like sessions.
Many profound questions are asked about what is most important in our lives. Many would typically answer that a good paying job and other things that bring success is at the top of their list. Quite rightly, I feel the Drs. Offer the main answer should be directed with a meaningful living in mind. Only then cherished dreams can be fulfilled.

The Healing Potentials of Meaning and Play Workshop
This is a special bulletin to my readers:
The International Network on Personal Meaning (INPM) is dedicated to advancing health, spirituality, peace and human fulfilment through research, education and applied psychology with a focus on the universal human quest for meaning and purpose. We do this through articles on meaningful living, providing a source for research on meaning and existentialism, and information on meaning centred counselling and therapy for students and practitioners.
This event is hosted August 19th and 20th (Friday and Saturday) at The University of Toronto’s Multi-Faith Centre, the Summer Institute is geared towards counsellors, psychologists, social workers, mental health professionals, coaches, consultants, clergy, occupational therapists, nurses, educators and students.
