CALLINGS: FINDING AND FOLLOWING AN AUTHENTIC LIFE
Any leap you want to make in your personal or professional life that will align or re-align you with your passion and sense of purpose, with your deepest values, with a fit between who you are and what you do is, by definition, a calling-----an urging from the deep self that tells you what it will take to make your life literally “come true.” That calling could be to make a career change or creative leap, take on a new role or let go of an old one, launch a new venture or relationship, or simply make a course-correction in your life or work.
Join us for a dynamic, humorous lecture/workshop that takes a creative and clarifying approach to the challenges of listening and responding to these calls. While honoring a calling’s essential mystery, we’ll also explore the questions that bloom naturally in the presence of any call: What does it ask of us? How do we tell the true call from the siren-song? How do we handle our resistance to it? What happens when we say no? What happens when we say yes? (Please bring writing materials)
