Callings are urgings and imperatives from the deep self that tell us what it will take to make our lives "come true." They point us toward awakenings, course corrections, and powerful authenticity.
What inspires passion in your life, and what defeats it? How do you lose it, and get it back? In this supportive, hands-on workshop, we’ll explore how to cultivate passion as a life-skill – a stance – that helps bring vitality to all your engagements, including work, creativity, relationships, and spiritual life. You'll identify where you lose passion, including which routines, relationships, involvements, or beliefs drain your energies, and how you can revitalize it. You can learn to identify what choices take you toward, rather than away, from your vitality.
