What do positive psychology and Ghandi have in common?
This definition of positive psychology should make it obvious:
Ghandi practiced what he preached. He believed that all people (even India’s Untouchables) deserved to live meaningful and fulfilling lives. He knew that our strengths and virtues are only realized through deliberate practices. (Strategies of the Spirit!) Like the field of positive psychology, Ghandi knew that we must consciously choose, act and create lives of integrity through how we work, love and play.
Five Reasons Your Therapist, Minister, Life Coach, Teacher & Mother Need a Creativity Club
I was honored recently to be asked to write a guest blog post for Tamara Suttle's excellent resource All Things Private Practice site. Because that website is for psychotherapists, my post (Five Reasons Ghandi Wants You to Start a Creativity Club) was addressed to counselors. I'm sharing the link to that post below because the very same five reasons apply equally well to:
- Ministers, church groups
- Life coaches or Creativity coaches
- Mothers / Parents
- Nurses, doctors, healers (anyone in a helping profession!)
- Wellness centers, art centers and libraries
- Anyone who needs to create more life balance
- Anyone who suffers from Play Deprivation Syndrome
- Anyone who needs to practice what they preach….
