STO­RIES OF OUR LIVES

EADT Suffolk - - HEALTH & WELLBEING -

The need for mean­ing fu­els the quest for learn­ing and truth in sci­ence and in the world’s philo­soph­i­cal, re­li­gious and spir­i­tual tra­di­tions. In a sec­u­lar age, lack of mean­ing and pur­pose can leave peo­ple vul­ner­a­ble to men­tal ill health. Our brains are wired to seek mean­ing and pur­pose through the power of metaphor, by match­ing what goes on in our lives to what we al­ready know.

The Sto­ries of our Lives is a ses­sion on ex­plor­ing how the metaphors con­tained in sto­ries from tra­di­tional psy­chol­ogy and spir­i­tual tra­di­tions can help make sense of chal­lenges and find mean­ing in the face of hard­ship. Thurs­day Septem­ber 27, Quay Place, 6pm-7.30pm. All wel­come. Book your free place: mar­ket­ing@ suf­folk­mind.org.uk or call 01394 333199.
