Facilitated by Colleen Sharka.
To discover a calling in which we find meaning requires that we explore a spiritual life that connects us to ourselves, the other, and the unknown. Our purpose or vocation exists within, and not without, us. There is no right profession, relationship, or institution that will lead us to our purpose. The greater our ability to be present to ourselves, connecting with God/Source/Higher Power, the more we will attune with our purpose. Whether you are new to Still Harbor or have attended a previous Purpose Workshop, we invite you to an evening in which we will further explore the spirituality of purpose and why it is so important that we attend to the yearning within to our life’s vocation.
