Investigate The Question of Meaning and how it leads to personal happiness 

Click here to start your quest for meaning

Our lives are defined by the quest for meaning.  Finding your particular purpose, the ‘why’ behind your life journey, determines more about personal happiness than you may realize. In spite of the American dream, happiness is not something that can be pursued. It must ensue from a life that is founded on meaning.

Rather than encourage the quest for meaning, our culture emphasizes material success – external markers of “well-being” – over building a sense of purpose, finding the source of our deep inspiration, creating a structure of self-belief that can stand up to adversity without robbing us of faith in ourselves. The ability to find meaning in life is what separates persons who flourish from those who merely survive.

In this powerful six-week e-course, The Question of Meaning: A Six-Week Writing Investigation, Mark Matousek helps you to discover what your life truly means and how to locate your deepest purpose. These six eloquently written lessons challenge you to discard outdated story lines and focus your energy on what you care about most deeply and where you find authentic joy. Learn how to cultivate an unshakable sense of significance in your everyday life.

The Question of Meaning is designed to help you discover your life purpose. Discovering this mysterious, untapped potential will be your goal during this six-week intensive.  Step by step, the exercises will guide you through questions on authenticity, personal values, aspiration, vocation, and passion.
