The quest for meaning is perennial, but seems especially urgent in an age of uncertainty. There are still, as always, traditional ways to dive deep and find some principles to guide everyday life.

Those who already meditate, whatever the tradition, may find a session of SymEnc useful to deepen awareness and to gain new insight through a different perspective.
A whole life approach could be called Seership, because the aim is to see more deeply into the nature of the life, world and reality which give a personal life meaning and hope.
