Finding Meaning Through Chaos
Calming the Chaos welcomes Francie White, Ph.D. and Maria Rippo, M.A. onto a Live YouTube Show on Monday, April 5, 2021 at 1pm PST. We will talk about how painful and chaotic experiences can help you find meaning in life, and can prepare you to better cope with life’s challenges!
TED Talk #1: Emotions and Meaning: Dr. Alan Watkins, founder of Complete Coherence, introduces the key phases of human development and explains why poor emotional control is holding back progress. He asks us to imagine a world where we never have to feel anything we don’t want to feel; where we have complete control of what we feel and when we feel it. He also has an app called Universe of Emotions where you can track your emotions and change them. Check out the talk here: https://youtu.be/h-rRgpPbR5w
TED Talk #2: Michael F. Steger is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Colorado State University. He has spent more than a decade researching people's ability to find meaning in their lives and the benefits of living a meaningful life. In his talk, he asks the question "What Makes Life Meaningful?" and will share what psychological science can tell us about the answer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLFVo...
