Each one of you has chosen to be here on Earth at this critical moment in the history of humanity. And for a good reason: you have a purpose — a unique gift to contribute to the world. The path of embodying your purpose is not an easy one. It confronts the limitations of mind and social conditioning. It is an ongoing, exhilarating journey, and if you feel a calling to embody your purpose more fully, we invite you to come explore this edge with us. In this workshop, you will connect to the energy of purpose through meditation, interactive exercises, and movement. You will learn to experience your unique purpose as a dynamic state of being that can serve as a somatic guide to living the fullest expression of who you are.
