Life Worth Living Retreat, November 3-5, 2017

July 20, 2017

In light of the Center’s ongoing effort to revive critical discussion about the most important question of our lives, “What is a life worth living?” YCFC is pleased to announce the launch of the Life Worth Living Retreat, taking place November 3-5, 2017 on the Yale University Campus.
Based on YCFC’s popular Yale College course, “Life Worth Living” (HUMS 411), the retreat will draw upon a range of philosophical and religious traditions to help participants develop habits of reflection that will equip them for the life-long process of discerning the good life.  This three-day retreat takes the best of what the “Life Worth Living” semester-long course has to offer and makes it available to people beyond Yale University students.
Participants will be invited to reflect on their own worldview and vision of the good life: What does it mean for life to go well?  To be led well? To feel right? To whom are we ultimately responsible? What ought we do when we fail to live as we ought?
This program is open to anyone seeking answers to these most important questions.

Applications are now being accepted and processed on a rolling basis. Tuition is $1,995. The deadline to apply is October 6, 2017.  Space is limited.
