Life’s Purpose Workshop

Do you ever feel a need for greater professional or personal fulfillment? In the past few decades, studies on longevity have shown that people who live a “purpose-driven life” not only find more meaning and fulfillment but are also healthier and happier.

In this four-session online workshop, we will take a methodological approach to understanding the importance of purpose and how purpose leads to greater health, happiness, and longevity. We will identify the evidence-based health benefits of having purpose in life, including reduced anxiety, better sleep, and lower mortality. We will recognize and prioritize our values, define the positive impact of value-based behaviors on health, and uncover our personal passion and talents/gifts through reflection and guided discussion. Finally, we will align our values, passions, and gifts with purpose. By the end of class, you will have developed your own purpose statement and be ready to implement a plan of action for living a more purpose-driven life.

This is a highly interactive class. Please be prepared to actively participate in breakout rooms and class discussions.

Attendance requirement for incentive points – 3 of 4 sessions. This class will not be recorded.
