This Special Issue is devoted to the proceedings of the 9th Biennial International Meaning Conference, held July 28-31, 2016 in Toronto, Canada. The conference theme was on “Spirituality, Self-Transcendence, and Second-Wave Positive Psychology.” Some of the presentations have been summarized in Vos et al. (2017).
