There is a fork in the road and the right path is unclear—what do you do? For many people, this predicament seems like a daunting and impossible task, but if you know exactly what it is you want to get out of life there the answer is obvious.
Finding Your Right Path
When you make this active decision to begin your own journey of personal growth and development you’ve taken the first step towards a better and brighter future. Although, your journey is yours to travel alone, there are tools that can help you to get the most out of life.
Inspirational workshops, such as our Awakening the Dreamer Symposium, testimonials from successful people, and books authored by the greatest motivational speakers can aid in improving your relationships, workplace, intellect, and much more.
What Exactly is Personal Growth and Development?
Personal growth and development is a transformational process, in which improvements are made in your physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, and/or financial state.
This process is often triggered by an important life event that inspires you to improve and empower yourself by discovering where your full potential lies. The result is a more satisfying and meaningful life, which is evident in your relationships, place of work, self-image, and self-confidence, as well as your worldview.
Why Do You Want to Partake in This?
People want to grow and develop themselves because they are unsatisfied with their life and the direction it is heading. To change its course and create a satisfying life, undergoing the personal growth and development process is essential.
Once this process is underway the results are endless. You will find meaning and purpose in yourself that was absent before. Life goals will become possible. You will use your full potential to benefit yourself and others. New skills and talents will be discovered. Old relationships will be strengthened and new ones will be easily formed. All of which will give you a boost in your self-image and self-confidence.
What is The Process of Personal Growth and Development?
Every person is a unique individual and because of this, a universal strategy for personal growth and development cannot exist.
Each pathway towards personal growth and development is a personalized journey. It is up to the individual to figure out which pathway is theirs and where it leads. There is, however, as a set of questions that can help guide you towards your own path…
- What is your current state?
Evaluate your strengths and weakness as well as good and bad habits.
- What is your desired state?
Examine what it is you hope to improve about yourself and why is it important for you to improve those characteristics.
- How do I get there? What do I need?
Determine what knowledge and experiences need to happen in order for you get closer to your desired self. Find resources that are useful towards achieving this desired state. A good example is The Awakening the Dreamer Symposium, which aids in the growth and development of social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual traits.
- What is a plausible timeline?
Make a list of activities and events you hope to experience within a set amount of time. Use them as checkpoints that lead towards your goal.
The Awakening the Dreamer Symposium- The Inspiration Behind Thousands of Personal Journeys
A 4-minute introduction to the experience that will transform your relationship to the crisis and opportunity of this time in history.
The Awakening the Dreamer Symposium is an ideal tool towards a successful personal growth and development experience. If what you are hoping to improve involves environmental awareness, social connection, new worldviews and perspectives, spirituality, and a partnership with the earth then this one symposium can help you get there.
The symposium put on by the Pachamama Alliance organization, fights for the conservation of the Amazon rainforest, which is home to many indigenous tribes like our partners, the Achuar. Specifically, the symposium illuminates the predisposed assumption that the habits of the “modern world” have little effect on the environment, which is a gross misconception.
While delivering the hard truth about the cause behind our current environmental state, the symposium also inspires a profound bond with fellow humans and defines what it means to be a global citizen. This state of being that is awakened during the symposium is called “blessed unrest” and acts as a catalyst for becoming an agent of change and bring forth a thriving, just, and sustainable world.
Awaken the Dreamer with Contemplative Questions
Similar to the questions listed above, the ATD symposium’s framework is based on four important, thought-provoking questions…
- What is our current state?
Look at where the planet is today in terms of the environment, social justice, and our relationship with spirituality (or lack thereof).
- How did we get here?
Reflect on what actions were taken by our consumerist society that led us into the life-threatening predicament we face today. Examine those unexamined assumptions and predetermined perceptions that everything is disposable. Use transformative learning techniques to debunk the irrational ideas and worldviews that we can continue on our current destructive path without consequence.
- What is possible?
Is it possible for us to change our course of global destruction? Yes, it is if we are determined to do so. The symposium will leave you with a sense of hope knowing that change is still possible.
- Where do we go from here?
After having been awakened into a state of blessed unrest online courses as well as recommendations for ideas and actions that involve social justice, environmental sustainability, and spirituality will be provided.
Gain Valuable Insight in the Following Areas:
- Social Justice- Learn how the modern worldview is non-inclusive to other beings outside of our consumer-based society and how this disconnection causes unjust treatment socially and environmentally.
- Environmental Sustainability- Realize how deep consumerism is embedded in our society and the effects it has on the environment. Learn about what changes we can make in our lives to lessen this effect on the environment.
- Spirituality- Rediscover the spiritual bond with the earth that the modern world lacks and the necessity and urgency of this bond.
Anyone can begin their journey towards personal growth and development as long as they have the right frame of mind and the right resources.
