For the third year running, I have a special Knowledge Café coming up soon to celebrate World Values Day in October.
It is a free online, virtual Knowledge Café run on the Zoom video conferencing platform.
The theme of this year's Café, introduced by Charles Fowler, will be on Wellbeing
Research in the field of positive psychology over the past thirty years has highlighted our deep need for values-based meaning and purpose in our lives rather than mere transitory enjoyment. This is called “eudaimonic” wellbeing, from the word used by Aristotle who taught his followers to live a virtuous life doing what is worth doing.
According to this view, our wellbeing derives from aligning our lives with the values that that will guide us through that meaningful life, rather than a life spent chasing short-lived pleasures.
In joining the Café, not only will you get to have some interesting conversations with small groups of like-minded people but you will get to experience the power of the Zoom communication platform and of course the Knowledge Café format itself.
See here for more information and to register.
The Café is once again, looking to be truly global - so far I have 44 people from 17 countries registered.
