Bonus Episodes: Finding Your Purpose

Bonus Episodes
Finding Your Purpose

Ten bonus episodes are included in your subscription. You’ll receive these after six weeks from getting the last episode of ‘Time for Change’. You have time to complete the course before moving on. If you maintain your subscription the bonus episodes will be delivered to you weekly (instead of every two weeks) for ten weeks. ‘Finding Your Purpose’ was recorded during two talks in Finland in July 2019.

Living a more conscious life means knowing our purpose at any time. If we get anxious or distressed, we’ve lost our purpose. How do we regain it? And how do we stop being subconsciously drawn back into the anxiety? In a time of great change, with our civilisation under threat, are we willing to fundamentally change ourselves?

‘The two keys to living a more conscious life are first to know our purpose and secondly to recognise when there’s been a change in the situation or ourselves.’
