An Afternoon Workshop with Gregg Levoy

12:30-3:30 pm © $30.00
Gregg will also speak at the 10:30 am Sunday Service
Callings are urgings from the deep self that tell you what it will take to make your life literally “come true.” They point you toward awakenings, course-corrections and powerful authenticity.
This presentation (at both the services and in a hands-on workshop) is designed around a series of self-reflective questions to help you clarify your callings, whether vocational, relational, creative or spiritual. 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 service project, or simply make a course-correction in your life or work. The central question you’ll tackle: What wants to emerge in your life right now?
While honoring a calling’s essential mystery, you’ll also explore the questions that arise naturally in the presence of any call: What does it ask of you? How do you tell the true call from the false? How do you handle your resistance to it? What happens when you say no? What happens when you say yes?
