Notre Dame Heart’s Desire & Social Change Podcast Episodes

“Finding meaning and mission in a restless world”

How does one find meaning and a mission in our restless world?
How can we make decisions that help ourselves and others?
How do we find the path that leads us to discover the deepest desires of our hearts and aspirations to make the world a better place?

Based on the popular course, “The Heart’s Desire & Social Change,” we will explore these issues and the three-stage cycle of human development: self-awareness, self-development, and ultimately self-gift. Rev. Dan Groody, C.S.C., ’86 vice president and associate provost, associate professor of theology and global affairs, will host this series and will be joined in conversation with Richard Leider, a bestselling author and practitioner on purposeful living and working, as well as a public fellow in Notre Dame’s Institute for Advanced Study.  Read the press release here.
