Gregg Levoy: Answering the Call to Your Authentic Life

March 12, 2019

Kayaking_Norwegian_Fjords.jpgGregg Levoy is the author of two books:

  1. Callings: finding and following an authentic life, and 
  2. Vital Signs: Discovering and Sustaining Your Passion for Life

Published in 1997, Callings was the first book to examine the many kinds of calls we receive. It is a passionate look at our natural search for authenticity.

"I don’t think of callings as singular … they are plural.  So many people wait for the great big calling and miss the smaller ones at their feet. These are the urgings and promptings and the imperatives that come from deep inside our lives that tell us that tell us at any point that tells us what it will take to stay true at true north."

During my interview with Gregg, he talks about the different forms and channels we receive calls – how to recognize and respond to them to create a life that really belongs to you … and you thrive.

This interview will be of benefit to you if you:

  • Feel like you are avoiding a call
  • Are thinking of retiring or recently retired and you are wondering how to maintain your sense of vitality
  • Have a loved one who has lost their passion for life 

“How do you create a life that really belongs to you? That isn’t a hand-me-down or knock off? That really has some power and passion to it?”
