Joyous and successful people spend less time planning and more time acting. They get out into the world and have fun exploring, including making mistakes, and in so doing benefit from unexpected experiences and opportunities. Drawing from scholarship in innovation, entrepreneurship, and positive psychology, this workshop is designed to show you how to follow your interests and take action, even though you may be unsure of your career plans, feel stuck in a rut, or be apprehensive of failure.
The class shows you how to:
· Trust your enthusiasm and allow it to guide you



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
