Discovering Early Experiences that Correlate to an Empowered and Flourishing Adulthood - American Montessori Society 2019 Conference - Washington, DC - USA

Engrained in the field of Positive Psychology, this research in the area of Transformational Leadership explores experiences that contribute to a life of empowerment and flourishing.  The research was ontological/phenomenological in nature and used narrative inquiry to gather stories from participants.  

This exploration is transformational in nature as it seeks to discover experiences that allowed for transformation to occur, and in the process of listening from the future, stands on flourishing and empowerment, creating a space where whatever is, is perfect.   

This inquiry was a positive one, an appreciative one.  I welcomed my own transformation and the invitation for transformation that I might be able to extend from my journey.  I believe that finding experiences that are correlated to a life of flourishing can bring opportunities for transformation in the world.  I further believe that if some of these experiences can be shared with conscious parents and teachers or any other significant adult in the life of a child, the chances for increasing flourishing in the planet multiply.

The research focused on exploring experiences during childhood that correlate to an adult life of empowerment and flourishing Of particular interest was observing whether unconditional loving is present in those experiences as the common foundational element associated with empowerment and flourishing. Based on this narrowed interest, the research question was defined as: What are some of the experiences during childhood that correlate to an adult life of empowerment and flourishing and is unconditional loving a common element in the majority of them?

There were sub-questions that were explored in parallel with this main research question:

  • If unconditional loving is not the common element in the majority of experiences that correlate to an adult life of empowerment and flourishing, what is?

  • Is there a particular “significant adult” that played a key role during childhood, in the future capacity of living a life of empowerment and flourishing? (teacher, parent, caregiver, family member, mentor, etc.)

  • What are the “ways of being” of that significant adult that were a manifestation of unconditional loving, or that were the basis for a life of empowerment and flourishing.
