Mini-Online Course on Connecting to Your Purpose


Have you seen this 'Story of Stuff' challenge ? Join me in doing it, sure to be thought provoking, inspirational and fun, Maureen

Mini-Online Course on Connecting to Your Purpose

What’s your purpose?
In the chaos of the day-to-day, it’s easy to lose sight of what motivates you to make the world a better place.
It's a new year, and a great time to get centered and reconnect with your sense of purpose. What's your deepest passion? What helps you come alive?
Starting January 25th, we are offering a special one-week January Changemaker Challenge, focused exclusively on helping you connect with your purpose as a Changemaker. 
Frederick Buechner describes purpose as, "the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.” It’s a beautiful reminder that we all play different roles in creating a better world, and that the process of doing that work can itself be joyful and fulfilling.
Complete with videos from Annie, hands-on interactive online exercises and some additional tips for practicing what you've learned, this short course will take only 1-2 hours to complete. It's free, and you can go through the content at your own pace.
By the end of the course, you will have developed a purpose statement that will help get you started making positive change in your community and in the world in 2016. We'll compile and share some of our favorite purpose statements with you, and check-in on your progress in a few months! 
The Changemaker Challenge will run from Monday, January 25th through Sunday, January 31st.
All you need is an internet connection, about an hour or two over the course of the week, and a desire to make the world a better place!
Wishing you a purposeful 2016,
Natalie Nava, Story of Stuff <natalie@storyofstuff.org>
