Rancho La Puerta Workshop

Richard will be teaching at Rancho La Puerta the week of March 24-30, 2018.

Course Description:

HOW TO UNLOCK YOUR PURPOSE

We all want to find our purpose, eventually—that thing that gives us deep meaning and makes us feel that our life, indeed, matters. Richard defines purpose as “our reason for getting up in the morning.” That dimension within us that tells us who we are, where we came from, and where we’re going. Purpose fills us with passion, drive and direction. When all else seems unsettled, uncertain, or impermanent, purpose gives us the will not just to live, but to live long and well. Purpose is not just for a gifted few, but something each one of us possesses and can uncover. Goals are different than purpose. Goals without purpose are often meaningless. Over three decades, Richard’s extraordinary exploration of the power of purpose has taken him all over the world—and his research about the importance of purpose has shed light for millions.

Your Purpose Check-up

Your Purpose Check-up

What do you want to do with your life? Choosing not to live for what matters most changes everything. In these trying times, your purpose is your centering, your guide. The purpose of life is not to be as busy as possible. Indeed, one of the biggest blocks to living on purpose is chronic busyness. So, take time to pause. Do your annual purpose checkup! Richard reveals three powerful practices to help you unlock and live your unique purpose. Unlocking the power of purpose is what helps you to feel most alive, to be resilient in the midst of transitions, and to live your best life.
