Over my life, I have been involved in circumstances where people appear to be thriving. I have noticed the following phenomena, under those circumstances –
* there is opportunity to share ones story
* there is need, and space, for one to be of service
* engagement in transcendent experiences
These phenomena appear to primarily happen with certain groups, under specific environmental conditions. These groups include church dioceses that have charismatic leadership, collaborative arts-oriented organizations and secular, non-profit, community-minded organizations.
