Finding meaning and Purpose

Often, a solid exploration of your core values is a good starting point. There is a great exercise we can do to assist you with this; you'll do part on your own, and part in session. You'll discover not only what is important to you, but also how to communicate that to others, use that knowledge make better decisions, and to live with integrity. 

Another way to find meaning is to read about how others have approached the problem of meaning in life. Some books on this topic which you might find interesting and useful are:

 

Man's Search for Meaning, Viktor Frankl

Existentialism is a Humanism, Jean-Paul Sartre

(Or don't read. Instead, engage someone in conversation about meaning and purpose in life. Much of what we find meaningful is relational, and a good conversation is a great way to explore this.)

We also recommend that you consider working through the CodaKaizen hero's journey life narrative exercise to gain perspective and to be more conscious and intentional about how you create your sense of self and understand the meaning of your life and its events thus far.

 

It's a worthwhile exercise, and to know more about it, book a session with our Life Coach, Will Malmo. 

Of course, sometimes we are living with grief or trauma, and in order to move through those and into what is sometimes call 'post-traumatic growth', we recommend speaking with one of the psychotherapists. They'll be better able to assist you with this.
