Program Description

Ready to reclaim your passion for life? Passion is in the risk, the willingness to step from the sidelines onto the playing field. When we lack passion in our lives, all of our relationships—partnerships, friendships, communities, classrooms, corporations, and congregations—are denied this life-enriching energy.

In this hands-on workshop with Gregg Levoy, best-selling author of Vital Signs: Discovering and Sustaining Your Passion for Life, you will discover how to cultivate passion as a mindset—a stance—that brings vitality to all aspects of your life.

This weekend, you will learn:

  • To cultivate passion for all aspects of life, from work and relationships to creativity and spiritual life
  • How to reclaim lost passion
  • To successfully navigate the endless tug-of-war between passion and security
  • Courageous inquiry of your dis-passion—where you’re numb, depressed, stuck, and bored — and how to rework these tendencies
  • The interconnected relationship between passion and health.

Passion can be turned on, as well as turned off. This usually happens at the level of the day and the moment, not with the five-year plan. At the same time, passion is more than exuberance—it’s endurance. It is sometimes the shoulder-to-the-wheel stamina on the order of years, so this weekend you will also explore how to keep passion alive.

You will return home renewed and invigorated, ready to show up in your life, work, and community with unstoppable and fully sustainable passion.
