4 Weeks, March 8th – 29th 2023
“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.’
– Robery Byrne
Many of us have been fed a traditional narrative about Purpose: go to school, get good grades, get a good job, work hard, earn more money, and you will be “successful”.
However, this path does not fulfil all of us, and our formal education system does not provide space for self-inquiry into Purpose. The invitation in this 4-week course is to explore a more open and values-led concept of Purpose. The aim is to get clarity on your own Purpose – to understand Why you do what you do – with the intention of using this knowledge to create more fulfilment and impact in your life.
The course is designed to give you a blend of practical insights to gain clarity and ideas for your future work and life path; at the same time as offering a deeper dive into a sense of our known identity and role in the world, within a wider context of interconnection.
The course is structured around 4 modules. In the first 3 modules, we take a reflective inquiry into 3 core questions at the heart of Purpose. In the fourth module, we look at how you might live more on Purpose through real-world action.
During each module, we will inquire as a group using Way of Council, as well as in dyads and triads in breakout rooms. Between calls, there will be an opportunity for journaling, homeplay, and a resource list including talks, books, articles and podcasts to supplement and support inquiry into your own Purpose.
The programme will:
– Connect you with a community of like minded individuals also seeking a life of true meaning and purpose
– Teach you some simple daily practices to help you become more present and aware in every day life
– Help you in deepening your connection to nature
– Motivate you to take the time you need to explore life’s bigger questions
– Support you in exploring your passions and your edges (the areas where there is room for growth)
– Help you to understanding what you need to do to fulfil your higher purpose
To complete the course, you will be invited to create a 1-page summary of your Purpose so that you have a clear, tangible, and actionable Purpose outcome from the course.
Purpose calls will be held online on Wednesdays 19:00-20:30pm (UK time) on the following dates: 8 March, 15 March, 22 March, and 29 March.
The cost of the 4-week Purpose course is £125.

Adrian lives off-grid in southern Tuscany, Italy, where he is growing an intentional community.

Leona is a practicing Eco-therapist, host of Connection Matters Podcast and Director of Live Wild CIC a community based nature connection and village building organisation based in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, England.
Leona is trained in, Life Initiation and Rites of Passage, Ecopsychology, Forest School Leadership, Non-Violent Communication (NVC), Social Work, Grief Tending and The Eight Shields model of nature connection- an holistic and earth connected way of living and working to support life.
Connection Matters Podcast explores evolutionary lifestyles, mindset, culture, healing and spirituality as well as many other issues relating to personal growth, community and nature connection.
Over the years Leona has grown to understand that a journey such as personal life coaching, questing or learning to live more consciously can create profound, transformational shifts that enable people to make more intentional life choices and grow into their life’s purpose more fully. These are shifts that in turn give us the insight to understand our personal potential and power in creating the world of our longing.
Leona currently facilitates the PEACE course (Peace, Empowerment And Cultural Emergence) as part of the growing cultural emergence global community. She hosts Questing with Fire which is a Rite or Passage programme aimed at building a village of initiated adults that will lead to working with young people. She runs Singing in Nature Retreats and courses, Long Term Nature Connection Mentoring for Adults, Grief Circles and Small Group and individual Eco-therapy.
Leona has experienced and witnessed the healing, enlivening and joyful benefits of intentionally building a relationship to nature and believes in the profound impact that this work can have on our communities as we move forwards into uncertain times.
