Transform your life this year with Spiritual and Transpersonal Wellness! We read about methods/topics to bring you closer to Self-Actualization, and Knowledge of Self by uniting Mysticism and Humanistic Psychology. We will meet once a month and also attend related workshops and events. Join us, and optimize your full potential to create your own reality on this path to enlightenment! More information below:
Self-Actualization is a continual process of “BECOMING” and never a perfect state one reaches. It is the desire to become self-fulfilled while taking control of your own life and mind. According to Psychologist Abraham Maslow’s updated motivational theory, there are 8 needs that motivate us to reach this self-fulfillment. We will read texts relative to each need, and collectively discuss real-world application!
