Finding Your Life Path

Event Image Header

Would you like to truly know yourself? Imagine the potential the future would hold if you could get in touch with your life purpose and equip yourself with a range of tools to help you along the way.

With the Peaceful Warrior teachings you can do exactly that. These teachings were described by Dan Millman in The Life You Were Born to Live, a book which has been read by more than a million people around the world.

In this workshop Dan himself will share his wisdom with you and support you in reaching a new level of clarity about your life path.

Through lectures, discussion, partner processing and sharing in a warm group atmosphere (with plenty of laughter!), you will:

  • Discover the details of the Life Purpose System — an objective method to determine your life path
  • Make personal leaps of clarity and experience profound breakthroughs
  • Gain deeper self knowledge which will help you to make positive, meaningful decisions about your career and relationships

You will take home life changing insight and perspective about your hidden calling, and the knowledge to manage the strengths and challenges of your personal path.

Open to all, but may be of particular interest to life coaches, therapists, yoga teachers and other helping professionals.

Familiarity with Dan’s books, The Four Purposes of Life and The Life You Were Born to Live is encouraged, but not required.

Bio ImageDan Millman — a former world champion gymnast, Stanford University coach, martial arts instructor and Oberlin College professor — has authored seventeen books published in twenty-nine languages. These include the classic Way of the Peaceful Warrior which was released as a film by Universal in 2007. A popular international speaker, Dan has influenced people from all walks of life.
