Many scientific studies are confirming age old beliefs. A recent science, Positive psychology is about twenty years old. The much older beliefs that have been taught for millenium are:
the power of gratitude, having close and deep connections, mindfulness, having a sense of meaning or purpose.
Another tool is inner child healing work. Learning to care for that wounded child we all have is a powerful practice helping guide you to more inner peace.
To help you find deep connection the tools we practice are:
compassion, empathy, authenticity, vulnerability, mindfulness, active listening, developing more curiosity in others, and many more. We will practice NVC, Non-Violent Communication which can also help.
A very important aspect is putting our judgments towards those we are trying to connect with aside.
Judging someone puts a barrier, stop judging and start connecting.
Most of us need a coach to keep us from letting our inner resistance sabotage us from achieving our goals. Our thoughts and stories can lead to our feeling, and we can learn new ways of directing the story to help us find more peace and achieve our goals, which in turn leads to having a sense of meaning or purpose in our life.
