Elizabeth Anscombe’s term ‘human flourishing’, describes the quest and desire for ‘the good life,’ well-being or life in its fullness and wholeness. It has a sense of humans operating on all cylinders, on good relational terms with God, humanity and the earth. This conference seeks to facilitate that quest in an increasingly fragmented contemporary context. We will address the occasional blurriness of the concept with the best science (measurement), philosophy and theology (meaning) and spiritual and psychological habits (mindfulness).

The conference aims to connect academics and reflective practitioners from fields of health, education and workplace well-being. The balanced program offers outstanding keynotes, panels and opportunities for academics and professionals to present papers.

It is intended that the conference will give rise to an international peer-reviewed publication. It is also applicable for those seeking professional development credit.
