Workshop with Best-Selling Author Gregg Levoy
May 27, 2018 07:10PM
On June 24, at 10:15 a.m. at Unity of Mesa Sanctuary, there will be a Sunday Service Talk and from 1 to 4 p.m., a Workshop with Gregg Levoy, author of the best-selling book Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life.
Callings are urgings from the deep self that tell us what it will take to make our lives literally “come true”. They point us toward awakenings, course-corrections and powerful authenticity. Attendees will explore the psychological, spiritual and practical processes we encounter in listening and responding to our callings. The calls could be to make 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 life or work. The central question that will be tackled is What wants to emerge in your life right now?
While honoring a calling’s essential mystery, participants will also explore the questions that arise naturally in the presence of any call: What does it ask of us? How do we tell the true call from the siren song? How do we handle our resistance to it? What happens when we say no? What happens when we say yes?
Levoy is the author of the bestseller Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life and Vital Signs: Discovering and Sustaining Your Passion for Life. He has keynoted (twice) at the Unity Worldwide Ministries Conference, Smithsonian Institution, Environmental Protection Agency, National Conference on Positive Aging, Microsoft, American Counseling Association, National Career Development Association, and others, and been a frequent guest of the media, including ABC-TV, CNN, NPR and PBS.
