Program Description

Are you feeling the need to do something radically different with your life? Why struggle on your own to figure out what that is? Join Laura Berman Fortgang, author of Now What?: 90 Days to a New Life Direction, and gather with others to tackle this tough life question.

Over the course of a weekend, you will explore a program designed to guide you toward who you really are and uncover your life’s true purpose.

The intention of this concrete, practical program is to lead you out of any confusion or indecision and help you find a clear direction for your future. Discover what’s next for you and come up with a plan for how to get there.

In a fun, interactive setting, you will:

  • Break down barriers to clarity about what you are meant to do with your life and learn to honor and make sense of your intuition
  • Take home specific techniques to undo limiting mindsets that prevent you from achieving your life’s purpose
  • Come to terms with change—life’s only constant—and set up specific steps for new and exciting goals
  • Learn how your past holds clues to your future direction and find a sense of purpose
  • Face financial obstacles head-on and determine criteria for happiness at work.
