One day you began asking: "Do I have a purpose? Where do I 'fit' in? What do I possess that the world needs? During this time of immense environmental crisis, the world needs people who know their purpose. Living "purposefully" is both your greatest joy and the thing the world needs most from you. This presentation/dialogue will help you answer the question: "How can I know my purpose and place in this lifetime? How can I know my soul's calling? How can I contribute most effectively to the healing and restoration of our planet?"
