A 12-Week Science-Based Program to Discover, Energize, and Engage Your Soul’s Work
By Julia Mossbridge
Written by a cognitive neuroscientist, researcher, and spiritual seeker, The Calling offers readers a twelve-week program to discover their "soul's work" by showing them how to turn the scientific method of observation and experimentation inward on themselves.
The Calling offers a ground-breaking twelve-week program to help you discover more fulfilling work, more authentic relationships, and a deeper sense of connection. It's no secret that many working professionals are dissatisfied with their occupations-it's been estimated that more than 75 percent of employees in the US are disengaged or otherwise unhappy in their jobs. This dissatisfaction is often seen as a structural problem-one that can be solved by shuffling people in and out of positions until they find the right fit. Cognitive neuroscientist, researcher, and spiritual seeker Julia Mossbridge has a different take. According to Mossbridge, this lack of engagement and satisfaction in the workforce is a spiritual problem: we find ourselves in stressful or unfulfilling jobs because we don't know ourselves well enough to choose wisely, in alignment with our most heartfelt desires. It's this problem-one of self-knowledge, values and spiritual attunement-that this book seeks to solve. The Calling offers a twelve-week program for discovering your "soul's work." An intriguing combination of hard-nosed science and wide-open spirituality, this one-of-a-kind guide will show you how to use the scientific method of observation and experimentation on yourself, in order to determine the nature and scope of your true calling, and then put it into action. You'll also create your own "lab notebook" of personalized information to help you define, understand and pursue your soul's work.With the insights and strategies in this practical yet spiritual step-by-step book, you'll not only find more satisfying work; you'll also discover greater fulfillment in all areas of your life, including more authentic relationships and a deeper sense of connection with the universe.
