Resources related to personal flourishing
I thought it would be useful to maintain a page with a list of resources that are, in one way or another, related to flourishing.
The connections may not be obvious on first blush – and perhaps they only make sense to me right now. It’s probably best to hit me up if you want to know more.
I will update this post when I discover new resources that seem worthwhile. I would welcome any suggestions you may have for resources that should be added.
