Finding Your Soul Purpose

People often think that purpose is a reflection of what you do in the world. But purpose goes far beyond a vocation. The truth is our purpose is a soul blueprint. It is our internal compass. Imagine if you could gain the clarity to be your highest self in all situations? Our purpose is a core part of our true self that we can integrate into every area of our lives. A life with a deep understanding of purpose is a life in flow. Life opens up when you are in this alignment, and understanding your Soul’s true purpose is the first step in manifesting everything you desire and reconnecting to what is already right in front of you.

In this three-day workshop participants will be guided to a path where they can discover their own Soul’s Purpose. This will be an interactive workshop, participants will be up on their feet participating in fun interactive activities as well at times taking part in guided self-reflection.

Space is limited as the event is meant to be intimate to give enough time for each person attending to be able to leave the event being able to articulate their own Soul Purpose Statement and have an understanding of how to tether that statement and the feeling it invokes in their everyday lives.

David Straus is the primary facilitator of the weekend. David Travels the globe speaking to groups and individuals about how to identify their own Soul Purpose. He has invited two of his colleagues Geeta Novotny and Natalie Gianelli to lend their beautiful expertise and healing gifts to the weekend. In addition to learning how to articulate your Soul’s purpose, each attendee will also participate in a sound bathing ceremony led by Geeta and the workshop will end on Sunday afternoon with a two hour session that Natalie Gianelli will lead. Natalie has been a coach for 18 years and she brings a unique spiritual perspective in the work she does. Natalie has the ability to answer questions from both a mystical and grounded perspective that we sometimes are blind to in our everyday lives. Her work is powerful and she will lead the group in a question and answer circle as part of this workshop, that will feel other worldly.
