(Re)discover Your Call & Purpose

  • Still Harbor 666 Dorchester Ave Boston, MA, 02127 United States (map)

Facilitated by Colleen Sharka.

Description

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 discernment retreat or 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.

This evening program including dinner is offered on a donation basis:

  • Help cover our material and food costs with a donation of $50.
  • Help us cover all of our costs with a donation of $100.
  • Help cover all costs and the costs of another participant with a donation of $150.
