Any leap you want to make in your personal or professional life that will align or realign 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 return to an old one with renewed vitality and commitment, or simply make a course-correction in your life or work. This hands-on workshop will take a creative approach to the challenges of listening and responding to those calls. The key issues explored will be:

  • Articulating and clarifying your callings
  • Working with the resistance that naturally arises
  • Identifying who and what can help you make the changes
  • Creating an action plan of specific steps to anchor your callings in the world
  • Gaining a renewed sense of direction and possibilities
