Here are some of the regular programs—topic themes—you’ll experience with The Flow Channel's guests:
Finding Flow with Mihaly
How does flow ensure that we grow? Why does the direction of our personal evolution matter? How does the design of our families, communities, and institutions help contribute to the positive evolution of culture—or its disintegration? How has Mike lived his own research? Find out in conversations with the Father of Flow himself.
Inside the Experience
For each of us there are thousands of opportunities to expand ourselves. Learn how to practice flow habits and build your capacity for flow from interesting people who have mastered fascinating things.
Flow for Good
Find inspiration and blueprints for action in conversations with people who discovered what Mike has always argued: Consuming culture is never as rewarding and exhilarating as creating or transforming it.
Children are natural, 24/7 flow finders—until they adapt to the constraints of institutions that tell them that learning is dull and hard. Let the kids show you how to transform challenges, including boredom and fear, into intense concentration and fun; learn how to nurture flow habits that kids will never grow out of.
Flow at Work
Are work and flow compatible? They can be when work is designed to deeply engage people's strengths. The Flow Channel is exploring epidemic workplace disengagement and dissatisfaction while finding organizations making work engaging and meaningful. The Flow Channel is the place to find practical models for designing personal career paths and corporate cultures for optimal experience.
