Don't Just Declare a Major - Follow a Calling              Thurs., April 11, 6 - 8 p.m. Location:  Carole Ellis Auditorium
Presented by Gregg Lavoy, Author of Callings: Finding & Following an Authentic Life Students often struggle to know and follow their truest callings, to negotiate the tight passages of career choice, and to create a match between who they are and what they do----the best kind of success. These decisions need to be made as much from the soul and spirit as from the dictates of security. What's at stake is a life of authenticity and integrity, a life that honors passion and purpose, and a life that's an original and not a knock-off.
In this dynamic and humorous lecture/discussion, we'll strike up a dialogue with the deep self, and hear what the soul has to say about anything as important as our worklife. With an eye toward gaining clarity and courage, we'll explore the psychological and practical processes typically encountered in listening and responding to callings, and the questions that arise naturally in their presence: How do you tell a true call from a false one? How do you choose from among many passions? How do you handle your resistance to a calling? What happens when you say no?
What happens when you say yes?
