Program Description

What is your true calling? How do you know? Callings urge us from our deepest core to do what it will take to make our lives “come true.” They point us toward awakenings, course corrections, and our ultimate essential self. Join  Gregg  Levoy, best-selling author and spiritual scholar, in this dynamic dive into one central question—what wants to emerge in your life right now?

At this inspiring workshop you will:

  • Learn to recognize a true calling from a want, need, or siren song
  • Discern actionable goals and steps to turn a call into a reality
  • Handle resistance to change
  • Investigate what happens after we say yes or no.

In this poetic and exuberant weekend, examine the many kinds of calls we receive and the great variety of channels through which they come to us. Explore the psychological, spiritual, and practical facets of listening to your calling—and putting it into process.

Whether you want to plan a career change or creative leap, take on a new role or let go of an old one, launch a new venture, or simply make a course correction in your life or work, Gregg’s uniquely practical and keen insight will guide you. Gregg will assist you, compassionately, in discovering your own calling and negotiating the tricky passages to personal power and authenticity.
