Can a coincidence be more than just a coincidence? After all, some coincidences are so uncanny, so striking and so captivating that they seem “meant to be”. In The Positive Psychology of Synchronicity (2019; 2nd Edition of Synchronicity: Empower your life with the gift of coincidence, 2015), psychologist Chris Mackey points to the often substantial benefits of weird and wonderful coincidences on people’s mental health and wellbeing.
Chris illustrates this through astounding case studies as well was his own personal experience, couching his observations in the language of positive psychology. He offers many practical suggestions for working with synchronicity whilst drawing on relevant science about brain functioning, spirituality and objective pillars for wellbeing. The book shows how synchronicity can help us through challenging times, restoring self-belief and awakening a deeper understanding of ourselves and our destiny.
