Pursuing the Good Life: November 12-18, 2018

“Sometimes in our lives we stop and question whether we are on the right path. I think what the Alumni Seminar does, and does very effectively, is to provide that pause.” — Heather Sonn, moderator
The "Pursuing the Good Life" Alumni Seminar has been canceled for this year. However, there are many exciting ways to continue your Fellowship journey. Please visit this website to learn more about the 2018 Resnick Aspen Action Forum, which will be held in Aspen, Colorado from July 25-28.
The “Pursuing the Good Life” seminar provides a space for Fellows to reflect on the various aspects of their own life that play a role in their happiness and wellbeing. Journey through your life and pause to consider what the role of family, friends, society, work, nature, and legacy play in your own pursuit of the good life. Through collaborative dialogue and self-reflection, the Good Life seminar challenges participants to check in on their values while considering their commitment to themselves and the world around them.


In addition to your personal introspection, spend a seminar in conversation with Fellows from around the world who are also at an inflection point. The alumni seminar gives you the chance to meet others from the Aspen Global Leadership Network and create lasting memories and bonds as you examine your lives as a group. Ask yourself questions like, “what role to mentors and friends play in our lives?” and “how we do we live bravely in the face of adversity?” As a group, you will delve into these deeply personal challenges and reflect on how they interact within your own life. 

The Impact on Fellows

Now in its 10th year, the “Pursuing the Good Life” seminar has provided many members of the Aspen Global Leadership Network with the chance to pause, reflect, and examine their own lives. Hear from past participants below.
