Stephen Cope’s Your True Calling Course – You Can’t Afford To Miss

Stephen Cope’s Your True Calling Course – You Can’t Afford To Miss

As a kid, I have often heard this statement “You should have a purpose in life”. However, quite frankly, no one tells you how to find the purpose of your life or live a meaningful life. The most common advice I have got is “follow your passion”.- But for God’s sake….can anyone tell me, how do I do that? It was never taught to me in school or college. Stephen Cope’s Your True Calling is an 8-Week Online Course that provides you a road map to find your purpose in life and teaches you a ‘path of action’ to live a meaningful life.

Everyone wants to “make a difference” and live a purpose-driven life that provides a sense of satisfaction and meaning. However, the majority of us live a life filled with regrets and excuses. Have you ever wondered why & what could be the reason?

To be honest, the major challenge most of us have is to find the true purpose in our life? How many of us can say with full certainty – This is my life purpose, this is why I am here on this planet. Do you know your true calling?

The second challenge is even If I do find my purpose then how do I pursue it? Is there a defined path that I can follow? What happens if I hit a roadblock?

As you can see when we talk about the purpose of our lives, there is confusion, less clarity, lack of courage, lack of conviction, fear, and anxiety. I am guessing, perhaps you too experience similar feelings or emotions when you think about this topic.

In this course, Stephen Cope introduces us to a time-tested guide that provides us a map to discover our true purpose and live life in complete alignment with true calling. This guide is Bhagavad Gita – An ancient Indian text that has inspired millions of people to find their calling and live a meaningful life.

Before I share about this course, let me introduce you to the creator of this course.

Meet Stephen Cope

Stephen Cope

Stephen Cope is a senior scholar and ambassador of Kripalu Centre for Yoga & Health. He has spent almost thirty years at the Kripalu Centre, the largest yoga research institute in the Western World, studying yoga wisdom and helping thousands of students find their true calling to live a more meaningful life.

Stephen talks about his journey when he worked in Boston as a psychotherapist for quite a few years. There came a time in his life when he was around 40 years old and had to end his 15 years of marriage due to a crisis in his relationship.

It was during this phase of his life that he decided to take a sabbatical and deep dive into the study of meditation and yoga. He was introduced to Kripalu center by his friend and within a couple of days at Kripalu, he got hooked to this place, the community, and has never looked back since then.

He is now the Director of the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living and has authored four best-selling books, including Yoga and the Quest for the True Self, The Wisdom of Yoga, and, most recently, The Great Work of Your Life: A Guide for the Journey to Your True Calling. He has truly mastered the art of writing complex, esoteric subjects in a simple easy to understand language for the mainstream.

What Will You Learn In This Course

In this eight-session course, you’ll be guided through a powerful process for exploring your true calling so you can bring greater meaning and joy to your life. I have provided an overview of all eight sessions.

I also suggest you listen to this video from Stephen Cope to fully grasp the essence of what he will be teaching you in this course.

Session 1: Life Journey Through Bhagavad Gita

This session starts with Stephen introducing Bhagavad Gita. He talks about the two prominent characters Arjuna, the warrior, and Krishna, his mentor, who guides him on his path of action, his sacred duty at the outset of a huge battle. As he shares this story with you, he helps you understand the nuances of seeking clarity in life in connection to your true purpose.

This module covers:

  • The five paths of Yoga – Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Jnana Yoga, and Hatha Yoga.
  • Bhagavad Gita – A guidebook for life that maps out the path of action.
  • Taking the spiritual path, the journey into self-realization.

Session 2: Discovering Your Unique Genius

Stephen shares “Four Pillars” of finding our unique Dharma. You will understand the different stages from discovering your true calling to living a life aligned to your dharma. There are lectures, practices discerning your unique gifts which only you can express in your way in this world.

This module covers:

  • Exercises to identify and clarify your true calling.
  • Identifying life situations pointing towards your purpose.
  • Questions to ask to ascertain what is not your ‘true calling’
  • Discovering connections between your sacred duty and its impact on the world.

Session 3: Doubt – The Biggest Obstacle To Your Life Purpose

In this session, you will learn about the obstacles which would hamper you to live life in alignment with your purpose. Doubt, fear, anxiety, and disbelief often tends to come in your way and paralyzes your ability to take action. You will learn how to make moral decisions and not get distracted or get pulled in conflicting directions.

This module covers:

  • How to guard yourself against the “Five Hindrances” on your path to action.
  • How to focus on your Karma & not the result of your actions.
  • Exercises to understand your fears & doubts.

Session 4: Understanding Your Relationships

Cope says relationships play a vital role in enhancing our lives. He speaks about six different relationships we have with the people around us as we evolve as adults. It is important to recognize these relationships as these connections help in transforming our personality.

This module covers:

  • How relationships guide us?
  • How to identify important relationships in our life?
  • Why all harmonious relationships are not supportive of your growth?

Session 5: Taking Guidance From Your Inner Voice

In this session Cope teaches you how to develop your intuitive skills and channel them towards pursuing your true calling. He explains how Krishna taught Arjuna to listen to his inner voice to gain clarity and take action. Cope says you must practice tapping into intuition to make better decisions that support your growth and eventually draws you closer to your life purpose.

This module covers:

  • Meditation practice to clear your mind.
  • How to leverage your intuition while taking important decisions.
  • Understanding the role of consciousness as you map your path of action.

Session 6: Taking Unified Action

By this session, you are likely to have clarity with your life purpose. Now Cope teaches you how to take action on daily basis to move closer to your life purpose. He shares how not to get distracted but to take steps that create conditions, situations that enable you to live a purpose driven life.

This module covers:

  • How to stay on course with your purpose without getting distracted.
  • Incorporating life strategies from great luminaries – How Susan B. Anthony, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela stayed true to their life purpose.

Session 7: Letting Go… The Outcome/Result

This is the most important session wherein Cope teaches how to stay on course and let go of our outcomes. He explains to us when you hold your mind on to an expected outcome or a particular result, it can narrow down your vision and steer you away from your karma (your sacred duty). This often leads to frustration and anguish within yourself and can put brakes on your path of action.

This module covers:

  • How craving for the desired outcome affects your performance.
  • How to immerse yourself in crafting your skill and sharing it with the world.
  • How “failing” at your purpose is better than “succeeding” at someone else’s purpose.

Session 8: Embracing The Life Of Purpose

In the final session Cope talks about the joys of living in alignment with your sacred calling. He shares how you can become the conduit of god and share your idiosyncratic gifts with the world. He explains the “Flow State” wherein you need not exert any force to make things happen for you…it just happens magically as God takes it over from there.

This module covers:

  • Flow States – How to experience it so that you can truly enjoy your activity and be in the present.
  • How to allow God or divine consciousness to take over life and channel your work through him.
  • How Bhagavad Gits ends & what did Krishna choose.

    Hi Satish,

    I haven’t heard of Stephen Cope but I think you have outlined his ideals and the course very well. I think spiritual understanding of our actions and lifestyle is important. As you said early on in the post, I am one of those people who is not quite sure what it means to know one’s purpose in life. For me, it’s just trying to be the best person I can be and that I do by trusting the “Golden Rule” of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” I can see the value in this course for young adults, but I am in my senior years and would find it difficult to affect such a change. Thanks for making us aware of this course, well done!

      Hi Yvette,

      Thanks for sharing your views, in this course Stephen talks about “Dharma” which is connection of our nature and the work we do. So trying to be your best version everyday and doing the work that makes life more meaningful is definitely something to strive for a satisfying life. Wishing you all the very best ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

    Hi Satish

    Its a very insightful review about Stephen Cope’s program. You have touched an important point that have triggered most of us, and for which we never had the answer.

    We have heard several times that to be happy and successful in life, you have to find your calling.
    But nobody told us how to do it.

    My wife and myself are very interested about meditation and yoga and we got lot of existential questions like that. I think we will have a try at this program to learn more about the purpose of life:)

    Thanks a lot for sharing this precious information!

    Cheers

      Hi Arno,

      I am glad you enjoyed the post. I hope you make the best of this course, wishing you and your wife good luck with this program ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

    Great article Satish!

    You really have struck the heart of the issue that many face in life. That the majority of people live a life filled with regrets and excuses. So its great to ask ourselves why & what could be the reason? An even better question is to learn this earlier and find and focus on living a purpose-driven life.

    Easier said than done, with our school and education system pushing us out with questionable skills into an ever changing world that is getting busier. So many get stuck in careers that they don’t enjoy – with this whole 40-45 year plan.

    So how to find that elusive purpose driven life? There are many experts and “guru’s” out there. So its refreshing to read of the approach of Stephen Cope. This certainly sounds like a comprehensive course! I’m glad it covers relationships also, as this is so critical to happiness in daily life. I will check it out. Thank you, John

    1. Satish

      Hi John,

      Yes indeed, many people want to make a difference, contribute and live a purpose-driven life however sadly its never taught in schools or colleges. All that is taught is to get a good grade, find a job and make a living. Many people are stuck in their lives with such an approach. Worst part is…life has become pallid and mechanical.

      The lectures, practices in this course will help you discover your true gifts and show a path to express it. The approach Stephen Cope teaches in this course is basis a time-tested guide Bhagavad Gita that has inspired millions to find their calling and lead a meaningful life ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

    Hi Satish,

    Great post and introduction to Stephen Copes and his program. Ive been trying (and admittedly failing) to get back into yoga and have always loved meditation ever since I was in middle school. I will definitely be checking out Stephen Copes course, as I think I definitely need all the help I can get in learning yoga and his course seems to be seriously intensive. Thanks again for the recommendation!

    1. Satish

      Hi Dev,

      This course is not about learning Yoga, it refers to principles / teachings of Yoga to find answers on important questions to live a more meaningful life. Hope this helps ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

  5. Lyne

    Hi Satish,

    Great this 8-Week Online Course that provides a road map to find your purpose in life and teaches you a ‘path of action’ to live a meaningful life, Here in Canada, we are confined to staying at home and forbidden to go out after 8 p.m. this can be great courses to follow for the next week, everybody is here for a reason and each need to find it’s a path.
    Thank you for sharing

    1. Satish

      Hi Lyne,

      Indeed…everyone on this planet is for a “reason” – It is important to find that reason and live a purpose driven life. I wish you all the best with this program ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

  6. Krista

    Hi Satish,

    Interesting article, I personally have never tried yoga before but it does sound interesting. I feel like doing some sort of meditation/examining ourselves plays a big factor in how we look at life, how we respond. Look around and be grateful for another day we have been given.

    1. Satish

      Hi Krista,

      Thanks for your views – Yes it is important that we examine our lives and find answers on our existence on this planet. Living a life truly aligned to our unique talents is a greatest gift we can give to our creator ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

  7. Robb

    Hi Satish,

    Great post, and I can relate. How many times I have heard to just follow your passion. I eventually did figure out what that was, but it took a long time. It would have been great to have a course like this years ago. Great that it is available now for those who are searching for their purpose. Very valuable information. Cheers

    1. Satish

      Hi Robb,

      Thanks for sharing your views, I am happy to know that you have found your true calling. Wishing you all the very best ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

  8. Alex

    Hi Satish,

    Thanks for sharing this great review!
    I’m glad that I came across your post. Even I think that I’m satisfied with my job and my profession, I still have doubts sometimes that maybe I took not a right decision by choosing what I’m doing now. I think by doing yoga and practices offered in this course, it could help to discover other talents. It seems that Stephen Cope is an authoritative guy, and the price is not expensive.

    Do you now what is the difference between 5 types of yoga?
    Thank you!

    1. Satish

      Hi Alex,

      The Five Paths of Yoga are essentially five branches of the same tree:

      Raja Yoga – Yoga of Mind

      This is a step by step method of cultivating control over your mind. This involves breathing exercises and meditation practices to cleanse our mind and find absolute control over it.

      Bhakti Yoga – Yoga of Emotional

      This is devotional approach to Yoga like the “Hari Krishna Movement” wherein you surrender completely to god to develop humility and dismiss the ego.

      Karma Yoga – Yoga of Action

      This is a path of action, that tells to engage and do whatever you are doing with love and with no expectation of any results. It is also referred as path of selfless service.

      Jnana Yoga – Yoga of Intellect

      This is most direct paths of Yoga, wherein you can gain the knowledge about the philosophy of Yoga by listening to the teachings / lectures on variety of spiritual texts.

      Hatha Yoga – Yoga of Body

      In this Yoga learn more about our body and practice physical postures to direct the energy (life force) through our body. This helps in promoting vitality and achieves balance with the body, mind & energy

      Hope this helps ~ Stay Blessed 🙂

  9. Jerry

    Hi Satish,

    Great post and interesting topic!

    I think we often times here about finding our true purpose, but no actual guidance on how to do that at times, if at all. I watched the video and felt like Stephen made some good points, one that stood out in particular was about us letting go of results and just focusing on crafting the skill. This is very practical advice that I’ve heard from other people as well, for example, the late Kobe Bryant.

    You provided very good details about what to expect from the course from a content standpoint as well and financially, thanks for being thorough and upfront. Seems that you have really done your research on this. Very informative!

    1. Satish

      Hi Jerry,

      Yes “letting go results” the third pillar of finding our unique dharma is by far the most challenging because often we live and grew up in a result oriented environment. Since childhood we have been told to achieve and perform. Cope says when we focus on the outcome, we are not in present moment and that affects your dharma, you will not be able to enjoy the fullest expression of your gifts if you attention is grasped by the future outcomes.

      Cope says, by practice we can master this pillar and enter into a “Flow State” so that you can truly enjoy your work and let divine consciousness in you take over the results ~ Stay Blessed 🙂
