Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life
Gregg Levoy

Subtitled Finding and Following and Authentic Life, this book challenged me to examine what I do, how I do it, and why. The prose is seductive, quotable, original. The research from which the author draws is wondrously far ranging across time and cultures. He deals with issues close to my heart: imagination, creativity, spirituality, and love. He describes ways to open inner doors that can lead to levels of awareness and personal authenticity necessary for a questing life of fulfillment. Calling brought me closer to the life force that sustains me.
