Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present a balanced and systematic leisure education service model using Eastern and Western perspectives. The term leisure education describes a multi-faceted, dynamic process that promotes exploration of perspectives and opportunities intended to develop an ethic of positivity and savouring that is conducive to flow, arousal, and leisure. Leisure education is designed to stimulate self-awareness, promote acquisition of leisure-related knowledge, and encourage skill development that enhances self-determination by meeting needs for autonomy, competence, and social connections, which are influenced by a variety of factors and people including family members, educators, leisure service providers, and neighbours. These leisure education services are applied across diverse audiences in various venues across the world designed to facilitate the interrelated positive experiences of leisure, happiness, and flourishing.
