Program Description

In a world of endless chaos and complexity, it has never been more important to take charge of your life and future—if you don’t, who will? You’re invited to this weekend of purposeful self-discovery with Whitney Vosburgh, MA, globally renowned author and workshop leader. Come look inside yourself to uncover your unique gifts and create a road map to your future.

At this workshop you will learn the three steps of your leadership path: Purpose, Place, and Practice—your destiny, your community, and your method. You’ll explore mindful and creative inquiry, group and one-on-one sharing, journaling, and visualization. You’ll experience embodiment work, intuition walks, and hands-on practices like building a tangible prototype of your purpose.

In a safe, empowering group setting, you will:

  • Discover inner wisdom, life navigational tools, and your North Star
  • Gain a deeper understanding of where you came from, where you are, and where you’re going
  • Expand your personal leadership capacity
  • Learn to amplify your influencing skills
  • Walk away with a visual life map and pathway for creating your future, starting today.

Coauthor of the best-selling Work the Future! Today books, Whitney shares his expertise in a workshop that has been effectively taught in creative, spiritual, and corporate settings. This experience is ideal for anyone curious about claiming their power, those about to step into positions of leadership, and those who have been traditionally denied their voice and agency.
