21 Days of Purpose: A Free eCourse for Uncovering Happiness

You have a purpose in being here…
… and part of that is remembering that
you are part of something much larger than yourself.

Science and thousands of years of human experience are showing us a feeling of connection to something greater than ourselves gives us a heightened sense of well-being and resiliency. In short, it’s a natural antidepressant.

I want to invite you to an experiment based on practices in my new book, Uncovering Happiness, that can help you nurture this positive shift in your brain and positively impact the world around you.

Over the next 21 days you’ll be guided through something very simple and profound; discovering a prosocial purpose and turning your purpose into a verb.

The structure for this is loose; there is nothing strict or rigid about this program. The intention of the following 21 days is to deepen your connection to purpose and compassion in your own life and get some support in the process.

Each day you’ll receive a writing to reflect on to light up the compassionate brain. You’ll then be reminded of these three key questions from Uncovering Happiness to help keep you focused and on track:

  1. What pro-social purpose are you involved in?
  2. What action can I take today that is in line with this purpose?
  3. What is this action in service of that is greater than myself?

I recommend weaving in some of the attitudes of play from Uncovering Happiness in order not to get overly serious about the whole endeavor, see it more from a learning lens and make it a playful endeavor.

A very wise woman once told me,
If something is valuable, give it away.

That may sound strange, but I understand what she means. As we give away what is valuable, we inevitably get back something invaluable.

If you’re wondering what that is, take a leap to commit to 21 Days of Purpose and discover it for yourself.

    What pro-social purpose are you involved in?
    Joining the movement to protect and guard the foundational tenets of a democracy.
    What action can I take today that is in line with this purpose?
    Getting involved locally helping with immigrants who are feeling great anxiety about their lives right now. Joining a group that assists in advocacy for immigrants and also offers time to give people rides, show up as witnesses when they or their families are threatened, and to offer support like gift certificates for groceries, clothing, other needs.
    What is this action in service of that is greater than myself?
    This action lends a compassionate presence and practical help for populations more vulnerable than myself.

      a solo conversation, but that’s OK!

      am sorting through priorities regarding pro-social activities … contemplating several paths … supporting local immigrant and ACLU chapters in my area. Also, very interested in supporting TRUTH IN JOURNALISM and CENTER FOR INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM, in support of the view that Democracies cannot exist in darkness.

      COntribution to others at this point is going to local meetings and showing up for actions around the above mentioned themes. Also, talking, debating, sharing ideas with and simply practicing listening with the aim of others needs and emotions, even if that just boils down to simple kindness of a sincere smile in a moment of interaction …

      Limiting views of mine most particularly those that tell me my efforts are too miniscule, or my feelings of overwhelm or petty anxieties, will prevent me from being of much help towards these larger calls and causes in our USA society in spring 2017.

      TO be continued …

    Being kind to others and myself as I explore the moments and days of my life … will be more specific in these postings as time moves on …

    The pro social purpose I am focusing on is to help homeless animals find homes. I have signed up to volunteer at a local shelter and will take “glamour shots” of pets then post on social media with hashtag #ShelterPetPR This is greater than myself because it is greater compassion for all living things- Enjoy your journey!
