What does it mean to live your calling?
If you think of your calling as career, purpose or passion, you are partially correct. Your calling is so much more. You are called to a fruitful and productive life that increases your vitality, quality of service, and benefits society. Living your calling can also fuel conscious capitalism.
For 20 years, I've researched religious and secular meanings of calling to understand the original idea, how far we've drifted from it, and why that drift matters to us today. I am excited to share what I've learned to help you experience the joy and satisfaction that comes from living your calling -- wherever that path may lead. --Valerie Myers, Ph.D.

“I was laid off from a highly professional technical job and struggling with depression. I attended Dr. Myers’ session. Her class changed my life! I started to market myself after it and just started a new job. I thought you should know.”
Why I do this work...
This work calls me to serve it! I became intrigued by the idea of calling while working in the corporate world. I had a great career that was aligned with my interests, valued my skills, enabled me to use them, and provided amazing growth opportunities amidst good colleagues and plentiful rewards. I felt fortunate to be paid to do my work even with "thorns and thistles" of work. But I realized that something was missing. That ennui led me to research what it truly means to have and live a calling. Surprisingly, that quest has taken me to graduate school, across disciplines, and around the world. In the process, I've discovered ancient wisdom that speaks to our times. I've also encountered many people who show us how to live a calling now. In sharing those insights with you, I hope to encourage and equip you with tools for your journey, wherever it may lead. That is part of my calling!
