The Life Purpose Lab was created in 2020 out of angst. For some time, Bradley Wright had a nagging feeling that publishing peer-reviewed articles in an academic journals wasn't really making the world a better place. He cast about for new approaches to research that would be illuminate something important and make a difference in people's lives, and he settled on the study of life purpose. He wondered if a training program could be created that would significantly increase people's understanding of their onw purpose in life. Such a program could be used in research as an experimental intervention. It would also meaningfully impact participants' lives. Along with a team of remarkably talented students and staff, he created the Life Purpose Lab, and over two years--and two pilot tests--they created the current training programs.
