THE POWER OF PURPOSE: 6 Lessons from the Field
presented by Richard Leider



"Why do you get up in the morning?" We all want to find our purpose, eventually-that thing that gives us deep meaning and gives us a clear reason to get up in the morning. Find that reason and we live longer, better. Purpose fuels us with passion and an aim in life. During life's inevitable transitions, purpose gives us the will not just to live, but to live long and well. Purpose is not just for a gifted few, but something that each one of us already has and can unlock.

Based on Leider's all new 3d edition of his classic bestseller, THE POWER OF PURPOSE and his popular PBS Special-THE POWER OF PURPOSE-Leider will share fresh new tools and insights into how an increased sense of purpose can improve our health, healing, happiness, longevity, and creative productivity. Purpose is fundamental and gives life meaning. Leider details a graceful, practical, and ultimately spiritual process for making it central to your daily life.
