Living a Life of Passion and Purpose

BarbaraWaxmanWe govern our lives with rules, lists, checks and balances; yet many of us don’t apply that same principle of discipline to laying out a path for our own personal journey, particularly when our definition of meaningful work may have changed along the span of midlife.

In a recent landmark U.S. study on the sense of happiness, the essential element was not wealth, losing those last ten pounds or the number of friends. Those that self-identified as happiest all had lives that they felt ‘had purpose’. Whether this is a calling, a faith or a mission, a life with purpose is attainable by everyone.

For this reason, I wanted to share with my friends here that I will be holding a small workshop, “Living a Life of Passion and Purpose,” this Friday, June 17 in Kentfield (Marin), California, from 9:00 – 3:30 p.m. One past participant called it “a spa day for the soul.”

Who will benefit? Anyone with a desire to recalibrate their life, within their means and capabilities, to be one enriched and guided by a sense of purpose. Anyone looking for a renewed enthusiasm they can bring to work or their home life.

Anyone who wants to be more conscious and deliberate in his or her life choices, and to align those goals with their true values.

What you’ll take away is a reference frame for selecting the aspects and elements necessary for you to feel you are living with passion and purpose. Get to know the stranger and best friend who is you. Leave with a roadmap for making choices aligned with your values.

The retreat cost is $295, and lunch and materials will be provided.
