Coming Into Your Own

Finding and Following an Authentic Life

Throughout life a variety of forces, such as caregivers, schooling, advertising, and cultural norms, move us away from our true selves. We gradually lose touch with our instincts, intuition, spontaneity, and natural self-expression. Often we end up trading our authenticity for what we perceive as survival.

A calling directs us to experiences that, if followed, help us return to our fundamental nature. It is a guiding force that leads us to our own talents, values, right livlihood, passions, and gifts.

Through experiential and interactive process, workshop participants will explore the many kinds of calls we receive and the variety of channels through which they come to us. Participants will be guided in asking and answering the fundamental questions that arise from a calling: How do I recognize a calling? How do I discern a true call from a fantasy? How do I handle resistance to a call? What happens when I say "yes" to a call? What happens when I say "no".

Coming Into Your Own will demystify the process of following our callings and provide participants with practical tools and tangible means for living a more authentic life. Drawing on hard-won wisdom and powerful stories of people who have followed their own calls, workshop participants will be supported in finding ways to translate a calling into action.
