The Power of Purpose Summit 2014 - Find your Purpose. Ken Wilber, Dan Millman, Charles Eisenstein: — by ManKindProject on March 8, 2014 to Nonprofits & Activism (233 seconds)

Berkeley, California (EastBayDaily) — Are you asking yourself questions like — How do I take effective action to make my dreams come true? What do I do when I know I could be living bigger? How can I take the next step to turn my vision into reality?

The times are demanding new kinds of genius from all of us. Einstein said “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

For many modern men and women, the critical missing piece for meeting the challenges of the day – for being the cultural geniuses we need – is a fully integrated sense of purpose. Now is the time for a purpose revolution.

Tim Kelley, author of “True Purpose: 12 Strategies for Discovering the Difference You Are Meant to Make;” Zhena Muzyka, founder of Zhena Teas and author of “Life by the Cup;” Jenny Sauer-Klein, Founder of The Movement Blueprint and Co-Founder of AcroYoga; and David Hopkins, Co-Founder of GameChangers 500; will join other speakers, experts, and artists for the ManKind Project USA’s LIVE Power of Purpose event in Berkeley CA.

The Power of Purpose LIVE is the culminating session of the Power of Purpose Summit, a five day virtual global event. Virtual sessions begin on March 12, 2014. You don’t need to attend the online event in order to attend Power of Purpose LIVE.

The speakers at the Power of Purpose LIVE will be talking social entrepreneurship, purpose-driven collaboration, empowered community, and right action in the world.

Other speakers include Mike Robbins, author of “Focus on the Good Stuff; The Power of Appreciation,” Ashanti Branch, Founder of the Ever Forward Club and nationally recognized speaker on mentoring, Roger Housden, poet and author of “10 Poems to Change Your Life,” and Dale Herink, international coach for deep authenticity work with women and Board Member for Woman Within International.

This event is an opportunity to explore your purpose and passion and get encouragement, tips, and inspiration from men and women living at the cutting edge of their comfort zone.

“It's time to finally break free of the lone wolf syndrome our culture promotes.” says Boysen Hodgson, Communications Director for the ManKind Project USA, “Awake, powerful, accountable, emotionally mature, spiritually self-aware, purpose driven community and leadership is exactly what the world desperately needs. And it’s always easier to succeed with support.”
