Sample text

One of the most complete recent descriptions of positive psychology can be found at the Positive Psychology Center of the University of Pennsylvania, the place of birth of positive psychology, the wording of which is similar to the ­definitions of other institutions such as the International Positive Psychology Association and the European Network of Positive Psychology. It reaches beyond the individual and includes institutions and communities and specifies the nature, goals and applications of positive psychology as follows: Positive Psychology is founded on the belief that people want … to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, to enhance their ­experiences of love, work, and play… Positive Psychology has three central ­concerns: positive experiences, positive individual traits, and positive institutions.

One day one of his professors, the late C. West Churchman (co‐founder of the field of operations research with Russell Ackoff), invited him to participate in weekly talks on meditation with Eknath Easwaran. Such teachings were novel at the time and Easwaran was probably the first person to teach meditation in a US University. Jeff became deeply committed to meditation and after a few months his daily nightmares had disappeared. Observing this remarkable recovery I started to go to Easwaran’s classes and learned his mindfulness technique called “Passage Meditation,” which involves learning by heart inspirational passages from various scriptures and repeating them in meditation.

The field of positive psychology generated a large number of research studies and new findings. This process ensured that the new discipline further evolved and refined its focus. Around 2005, when I was studying for a Master in applied positive psychology (MAPP) at the University of Pennsylvania, positive psychology was primarily concerned with achieving happiness through three basic paths: positive emotions, engagement, and meaning. It was argued that, in combination, these three dimensions led people to achieve higher satisfaction in life.
