Esalen Institute, Big Sur, CA
Join Lissa in a 5-day workshop at Esalen September 17–22, 2017 about The Anatomy of a Calling.
We are all embarked on what Joseph Campbell calls the “Hero’s Journey” of finding and fulfilling our calling. But so many of us feel lost, disillusioned, helpless, or stuck when it comes to our life purpose. If you’re like many of us, you may have felt called the way a priest is called to the priesthood, only to find yourself stuck in a system that asks you to sacrifice your soul’s integrity. Or you may still feel disconnected from your passion and purpose, not even knowing where to start. Or maybe you just quit your job and you’re realizing that you can quit your job, but you can’t quit your calling. No matter where you are on your hero’s journey, this workshop is intended to offer you comfort, inspiration, community, soul growth, and tools to facilitate the journey towards your soul’s purpose.
We will utilize writing, ritual, singing, dancing, meditation, art, group discussions, spot coaching, discovery exercises, and nature to help you unlock the ways in which your love and your gifts can bless the world. Topics of exploration will include the hero’s journey, dealing with fear, learning to receive and discern spiritual guidance, loosening the stronghold of childhood patterns that block you from stepping fully into your gifts, and igniting your imagination.
