Chris Mackey has long been interested in positive psychology, a science of wellbeing which, like other areas of psychology such as cognitive-behavioural therapy, is gradually showing more interest in spirituality.
About 25 to 30% of Westerners consider themselves ‘spiritual but not religious’ and clairvoyants, tarot card readers and other alternative practitioners are these days consulted more often than mainstream mental health professionals, showing the general public’s interest in a transpersonal dimension in life.
Chris’s latest book The Positive Psychology of Synchronicity explores uncannily meaningful coincidences, which can be of particular interest to many people who are interested in enhancing their wellbeing, and are interested in a spiritual or soul dimension in life. Synchronicity can be a helpful pointer to an optimal life path, as it tends to happen more often when we sense that we are on the right track.
Hear Chris talk about the book, its relation to 20th century Jungian frameworks and the importance of synchronicity in our spiritual lives today at this free talk at the Watkins esoteric bookshop in the heart of London’s Cecil Court. After the talk you can even ask Chris your questions, meet the author and get your book signed!
