Our group discussion on Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. This is done in collaboration with the meetup group 52 Living Ideas.

Chapter 10: The Making of Meaning

“Much of what we call culture and civilization consists in efforts people have made, generally against overwhelming odds, to create a sense of purpose for themselves and their descendants.”

In the final chapter of this book, we explore the connection between flow and making meaning, specifically the challenge of creating harmony in consciousness based on reason and choice. We’ll ponder MC’s recommendation that we need to learn to unite and cooperate with others without losing our individuality. As he suggests at the book’s conclusion: “The problem of meaning will then be resolved as the individual’s purpose merges with the universal flow.”

Topics: “What Meaning Means” “Cultivating Purpose” “Forging Resolve” “Recovering Harmony” “The Unification of Meaning in Life Themes”


“Ask Me Why” by Matthew Billman and K. Joia Houheneka
