THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26TH LECTURE:
Life On Purpose: How Living for What Matters Most Changes Everything
What is a life worth living? Socrates said that an unexamined life isn’t worth living. Aristotle went further to say that a purposeless life isn’t even worth examining. Vic Strecher explores ways of creating greater life purpose and the daily energy and willpower to live for what matters most. Ancient philosophy meets the most modern science and technology as Dr. Strecher creates a new vision for health and well-being across the lifespan.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27TH WORKSHOP:
Giving Yourself S.P.A.C.E. for More Energy and Willpower
Aristotle suggested that excellence isn’t an act, but a habit. Excellence in our modern era requires engagement with personal, family, work, and community purposes. And it isn’t easy. Full engagement in life requires vitality (energy) and self-control (willpower). Increasingly, these two concepts are viewed by researchers as muscles that can be strengthened, trained, depleted, and fueled.

In this workshop, participants will learn and practice specific strategies for improving their S.P.A.C.E. – sleep, presence, activity, creativity, and eating – five positive behaviors shown to improve energy and willpower. The workshop will include a combination of lecture, discussion, and interactive exercises and cover many of the concepts from his recent book Life On Purpose: How Living for What Matters Most Changes Everything (HarperOne).
