Do you feel a yearning to create something of meaning and value? Perhaps you do, but you may not know where to begin or how to keep going once you've started. This yearning comes from a deep place, a place of mystery and depth. We don’t know where it begins, and we don’t always know where it is taking us, yet we sense that it holds the answer to our fulfillment.
During the Renaissance, and in ancient Greece and other cultures, philosophers believed in a divine, interconnected universe. Each person was said to be a microcosm of this universe, born with a guiding spirit, talent, or source of inspiration—a destiny that we are here to fulfill.
