Have you ever asked yourself, How can I add more meaning to my life? What can I do to make a lasting difference in the world? Why am I here? If so, then welcome to the Right Livelihood Quest, a journey toward a life of living “divided no more,” of aligning your values, beliefs, experiences, passions, and commitments. It is an inquiry into what life has been preparing you to do: to make a lasting difference and leave a legacy in the world.
The Quest has two distinct phases: The first phase, lasting three weeks, is done individually, wherever you are. This phase is guided and includes readings, weekly reflection questions, online dialogues, and experiential activities in nature from the realm of eco-psychology. This is a preparation phase and specific instructions will be provided after registration. The second phase is this five-day residential retreat at Esalen, where we will deepen the exploration through the proprietary Why Me?™ Framework, developed by Simon and utilized for more than a decade by hundreds of participants. This phase includes diverse activities and experiences including small group dialogues, individual experiences in nature, ceremonies that blend indigenous wisdom with the modern theories of experiential learning, somatic activities that tap into the wisdom of our bodies, and fun, celebratory activities to honor our individual and collective journeys.
Note: Registration for this workshop is through Right Livelihood Quest only, and the registration deadline is August 31, 2014.
