The Great Work of Your Life
fullDescription
An inspiring guide to finding your life's purpose—what spiritual teachers call dharma—through mindfulness and self-exploration.

Stephen Cope says that in order to have a fulfilling life you must discover the deep purpose hidden at the very core of your self. The secret to unlocking this mystery, he asserts, can be found in the pages of a two-thousand-year-old spiritual classic called the Bhagavad Gita—an ancient allegory about the path to dharma, told through a timeless dialogue between the fabled archer, Arjuna, and his divine mentor, Krishna. Cope takes readers on a step-by-step tour of this revered tale and highlights well-known Western lives that embody its central principles—including such luminaries as Jane Goodall, Walt Whitman, Susan B. Anthony, John Keats, and Harriet Tubman, along with stories of ordinary people as well. If you're feeling lost in your own life's journey, The Great Work of Your Life may help you to find and to embrace your true calling.

"I am moved and inspired by this book, the clarity and beauty of the lives lived in it, and the timeless dharma it teaches."—Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart

"A rich source of contemplation and inspiration [that] encourages readers . . . to discover and fully pursue their inner self's calling."Publishers Weekly
