Church of Indianapolis
A Positive Path for Spiritual Living
|A positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus and the power of Prayer
| Any leap you want to make in your personal or professional life that
will align or re-align you with your passion and sense of purpose, with
your deepest values, with a fit between who you are and what you do
is, by definition, a calling-----an urging from the deep self that tells you
what it will take to make your life literally “come true.”
That calling could be to make a career change or creative leap, take
on a new role or let go of an old one, launch a new venture or a new relationship, or simply make
a course-correction in your life or work. This dynamic, humorous and hands-on workshop will take
a creative approach to the challenges of listening and responding to these calls. While honoring a
calling’s essential mystery, we’ll also explore the questions that bloom naturally in the presence
of any call:
What does it ask of us?The key issues explored will be:
How do we tell the true call from the siren-song?
How do we handle our resistance to it?
What happens when we say no?
What happens when we say yes?
Clarifying your callings(Please bring writing materials.)
Working with the resistance that naturally arises
Identifying who and what can help you make the changes
Creating an action plan of specific steps to anchor your callings in the world
Gaining a renewed sense of direction and possiblities.
