Why A Life's Work?
Have you ever ended up down a path you didn't want to be on? Somehow you have found yourself in the darkness, lost in the wilderness, not really knowing where you are or how you got here.
You might feel that you are not living up to your potential, or that you are living at odds with your values or aspirations. You might feel stuck, afraid, tired, unable to appreciate your significance or purpose in this life. You might be sick, in pain, battling your body or your mind with an imminent fear of death or loss.
A Life's Work is about rediscovering who we are, our place in the world, and the gifts we have to share. It is foremost about living a life dedicated to practice. My aim is to give you a light, a lantern, a torch to take with you on your journey, so that you can find your way through the darkness and wilderness.
Along the way, you'll learn to tend that light so it doesn't go out, as well as learn useful wayfinding tools and techniques. Some of these skills you will find useful and beneficial, others you will leave behind. Once you are ready and equipped for the path, you'll learn how to orient yourself in unfamiliar territory, and how to use landmarks and recognize signposts along the way. As you progress, you'll learn to value and appreciate guides and fellow travelers on the path, so that you can save time and gain insight about the path ahead.
By the end, I hope you'll have gained confidence in being a wayfinder, and discovered that the destination is not nearly as important as enjoying the journey that is this life. If you are one of the fortunate ones, you might even discover the great joy that is sharing your light with others, giving them the gift of exploring the wilderness of their own life with confidence and determination.
How to Get Started
Start with Honoring Your Potential, which introduces your natural condition, what it is that you are recognizing in yourself. Here you will be introduced to the significance of understanding your true nature and your place in the world.
Next, engage in the practice of Wayfinding. Wayfinding has three main practices: Inner Work, Outer Work, and our Work Together. In the beginning, the focus is on the Inner Work as we learn to orient ourself and acquire the basic resources and skills for the path ahead. As we become grounded in the Inner Work, we start to engage the Outer Work in our daily lives. As we become more familiar with the Inner and Outer Work we discover the joy and significance of our Work Together in shaping the culture around us and creating a better world.
