The Anatomy of a Calling

Sep 18 - 23, 2016 Begins in 3 months
with Lissa Rankin

We are all embarked on what Joseph Campbell calls the "Hero's Journey" of finding and fulfilling our calling. But so many of us feel lost, disillusioned, helpless, or stuck when it comes to our life purpose. If you're like many of us, you may have felt called the way a priest is called to the priesthood, only to find yourself stuck in a system that asks you to sacrifice your soul's integrity. Or you may still feel disconnected from your passion and purpose, not even knowing where to start.
