What is your meaning in life?

Positive psychology research shows that people who experience high levels of personal meaning are happier, more fulfilled, passionate and resilient. The call for meaning is an internal whisper, encouraging us to fulfil our deepest potential. Being mindful allows you to notice that whisper, and thus realise your sense of personal meaning and purpose in life. The Mindfulness-Based Meaning Program (MBMP) is entirely research-based and is the first comprehensive program to bring two important aspects of well-being together: meaning in life and mindfulness. As part of this program, mindfulness is used as a spotlight that sheds light on meaningful moments in our past, our experience of meaning in the here and now, and the purpose that would potentially provide us with a deep sense of meaning in the future. Using mindfulness, it becomes easier to see these aspects, and create a clearer understanding of your meaning and purpose.

Living a meaning-full Life

  • How does the program work?

    The Mindfulness Based Meaning Program comprises 8 sessions, each including a video and a variety of exercises. All the materials are part of this online platform – you can even download the exercises to your own computer and complete them whenever it feels right for you. We recommend that you spend one week on each session. However, the pace at which you progress is completely up to you. You could spend a couple of days or a couple of weeks on each session, depending on the topics that feel relevant to your own personal journey. Like any other journey, there may be places where you wish to stop, breathe, and enjoy the scenery while in other places you might wish to move faster. The important thing to remember is that you have a whole year – 12 months – to complete the programme, which means that you can complete it at a pace that feels right for you.

  • Who is it for?

    This program would be highly valuable for any individual who wishes to deepen their own experience of personal meaning and purpose. Additionally, the program would offer excellent practical tools for coaches, mindfulness teachers, counselling psychologists, psychotherapists, clinical psychologists, teachers, and any individuals who are supporting others in their journey of growth and transformation.

  • What is your "why"?

    Throughout the history of mankind, people have been extensively preoccupied with questions such as: Why are we here? What is my purpose? What is the meaning of life? These universal questions deal with the core concern of what it means to be human and have inspired various myths, religions, arts and philosophies in different cultures around the world and across time and traditions. Today, in an age of technology, instability and an ever-changing world, these questions seem more relevant and pressing than ever. The science of meaning seeks to answer such questions. Knowing your meaning and purpose, your "why", can serve as a compass with which to navigate your life journey.

  • Dr. Russo-Netzer is a positive psychology senior lecturer and researcher. She is passionate about building bridges – between disciplines and between theory and "real life" practice, in therapy, organizations, and education throughout the lifespan. She is especially keen about creating a synergistic integration between the fields of positive psychology, spirituality, and existential psychology, which she believes allows for a more holistic view of human growth and development than any one of these separately. Her main research and practice interests focus on meaning in life, positive psychology, spiritual development, positive change and growth. Dr. Russo-Netzer is a clinical logotherapist, the head of the Compass Institute for the Study of Meaning in Life and the academic training program for logotherapy (meaning-oriented psychotherapy) at Tel-Aviv University, as well as the chairperson of the Logotherapy Association in Israel. She serves as academic advisor and consultant to academic and non-academic institutions, develops training programs and curricula for various organizations and is the co-editor of books on these topics.
