What inspires passion in your life? And what defeats it? How do you lose it and how do you get it back?
Gregg Levoy will explore how you can cultivate not just a specific passion, but passion as a mindset—a stance—that helps bring vitality to all your engagements, from work and relationships to creativity and spiritual life.
We’ll examine the endless, yet endlessly fruitful, tug-of-war between passion and security, and do some courageous inquiry into dis-passion—where we might be numb, stuck or bored in our lives, perhaps especially post-pandemic—so that we can rework these tendencies, claim our rightful inheritance of vitality, and get our spark back.
What you'll learn:
-Passion can be cultivated—turned on as well as turned off.
-Passion is in the risk—in the willingness to step from the sidelines onto the playing field.
-There’s a difference between healthy passion and unhealthy passion.
-Passion breeds passion and disinterest breeds disinterest. If you lack passion in your own life, your other relationships will be denied that energy.
-Passion is intimately related to health. To the degree that passion is vitality, honoring your passions enhances your vitality.
