This evidence-based workshop integrates the practical spiritual wisdom from the Eastern meditation traditions, and visualizations, and methods from positive psychology from the Western psychotherapy traditions to address staying in the 'flow' and bringing one's best self to everyday living. These methods include: visualizations for developing optimal performance states, the development of character strengths and positive states of mind to potentiate mastery of being in everyday life, the articulation of ultimate concerns for promoting vital engagement in life, training the mind to develop everyday wellbeing and happiness, concentration training to cultivate continuous and complete focus on whatever you are doing at the moment, insight meditations to reduce reactivity and develop a non-reactive openness to experience, and visualizations to develop sensitivity and compassion for others.
