Rancho La Puerta Workshop 2019

Course Description:


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.
