Awaken Your Soul Purpose
shimDecember 15th at 5PM
shimshimBrenda Wade – Jonathan Young

Dr. Jonathan Young and Dr. Brenda Wade

Listen to the Show

More and more – conversations, books, and films are exploring the subject of the soul. We know that personal experiences of soul are not the same, but on this program you hear about the kind of moments that call to everyone. What are the challenges of living with soul purpose? Are there ways to know whether you’re on your soul path? During this rich conversation we talk about:

  • what ignites your soul
  • various ways your soul journey can become blocked
  • the many kinds of stories that can awaken your soul purpose
  • why Jonathan uses myth, books, and movies to reveal soul recognition
  • how Brenda’s book “Power Choices” can guide explorations of the soul
  • the importance of sages and mentors in finding your soul path
