Maria Sirois: “Living an Authentic Life”

Tuesday, October 3, 2017
7-8:30pm with 6:30pm book signing
Trustees Pavilion

Authenticity is a crucial element to a thriving life, yet it requires both courage and vulnerability and the willingness to stand tall in the values and virtues that sustain us. Moving toward a more authentic life, and an ideal sense of self, brings great reward: serenity, wisdom, clarity about who to spend time with and who not, elevated optimism, passion and creativity.  And, as we shape our days toward our ideal selves, we begin to draw toward us like-minded and like-hearted people.  The journey is not without its costs, however.

In this interactive conversation, Dr. Sirois articulates both the perspectives and tools from the fields of positive psychology and resilience that enable us to develop an inner true north, and the risks to choosing to live without authenticity.  We’ll explore what matters most on the journey and how to let go of myths that keep us attached to living into other people’s beliefs about who we should be and what our lives ought to look like.  By choosing such a journey, we choose a life that is genuine, healthful and sustaining.

Cost: $15 for community members and free for Ramapo faculty, Staff and Students.
