Sunday, June 25, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Author Gregg Levoy brings his insight and strategy to examine the many kinds of calls we receive in life, and the great variety of channels through which they come, in a workshop based on his book “Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life”
One of the best ways to find out whether a calling is “true,” according to Levoy, is to get in the habit of continually tapping in and listening to yourself with what Saint Benedict called “the ear of the heart.” This, along with exploring discernment and clarifying your calls, will be the basis of the Callings workshop.

Gregg Levoy has taken his own highly original idea and put it to practical use. His book, Callings: Living the Authentic Life, combines psychology and spirituality to help people decide what they really want to do in life, how they would like to treat others, and how not being true to oneself can be damaging to one’s mental and physical health. Levoy has forged a new career, writing, teaching, and speaking to groups about his ideas for improving the quality of life.
Levoy’s book about Callings is rated among the “Top 20 Career Publications” by the Workforce Information Group and a text in various graduate programs in Management and Organization Leadership. Levoy is a former “behavioral specialist” at USA Today, and a regular blogger for Psychology Today. A former adjunct professor of journalism at the University of New Mexico, former columnist and reporter for USA Today and the Cincinnati Enquirer, and author of This Business of Writing (Writer’s Digest Books), he has written for the New York Times Magazine, Washington Post, Omni, Psychology Today, Christian Science Monitor, Fast Company, Reader’s Digest, and many others, as well as for corporate, promotional and television projects.
