About this Event

Unlock the secret to living a life of joy and fulfillment.

Do you have a deep sense that you’re not quite doing what you’re supposed to - only you're not sure what that is? Are you feeling a bit down, disconnected and directionless? Are you looking for something that would have you feel more engaged and alive?

While human-beings are not human-doings, we all want to be ‘doing’ something we love, something that makes us feel good about ourselves, something worthwhile.

So what is it you would really like to be doing? What would have you feel more engaged and enthusiastic about life? What difference would you like to make that would have you feeling inspired and fulfilled, at work and at home?

Discover Your Purpose is a four-hour workshop that will help you answer these questions and bring you clarity on what’s really important to you and how to create a more meaningful life.

Proven methodology

Using the Japanese Ikigai framework and other supporting frameworks, Discover Your Purpose will help clarify what’s really important to you and will help you find your “reason for being.” In a small group setting, with guided meditation, workbook exercises, brainstorming and group discussion, you will discover what you are meant to be doing with your life. You will leave feeling more confident, inspired and purposeful.

Workshop Facilitators

Charlie James, Certified Integral & Purpose Coach

William Koty, Director Emeritus, Continuing Studies, UBC

CHARLIE JAMES

With over 20 years in marketing and business management, Charlie decided to step off the corporate ladder to become a strategic business consultant. It was around this time, in the same year as both her parents died, that she started to really wonder what was the meaning of life. She went back to UBC to participate in their Sustainability Leadership program, where her eyes were opened wide to the devastating impacts of global warming. She instantly became a passionate advocate for the environment and for sustainable business, leading workshops and speaking at conferences across North America.

Having spent hours - it not weeks - talking to people about their hopes, fears and dreams for the future of their family, their business, their community and our planet, Charlie discovered her true calling.

“I love helping people step outside themselves to find their bigger purpose, and step inside themselves to create a more joyful and fulfilling life."

Applying this passion to both individuals and organizations, Charlie has become a certified Integral coach helping people and teams align their values, integrate their vision and fulfill their purpose.

WILLIAM KOTY

While designing curriculum and creating educational opportunities, William continues to ponder the same question he has been asking for most of his adult life: “What is the nature of reality and what does it all mean?”

With a bachelors degree in world business and a masters degree in international policy studies, a few years as a professional chef in San Francisco, and a dozen years in California’s software industry, William eventually found himself a fulfilling career at the University of British Columbia. Most recently as Director of the UBC Continuing Studies Centre for Sustainability, and before that in a variety of roles, he stretched his creativity as never before, developing a host of programs at the intersection of business and technology, making a difference in the lives of thousands of students.

Now retired as Program Director Emeritus, UBC Extended Learning, his search for understanding the world continues along with his perpetual quest for greater meaning. So, what has he discovered so far?

“I’ve been doing a lot of doing ~ not a lot of being!”

On his journey of self-discovery as an educator, meditator and reflective thinker on the human condition, William has realized his greatest contribution to the world is in developing opportunities for individuals, teams and companies to stretch their own sense of self to be the best they can be for themselves and the world.

William has designed and facilitated many programs and workshops over the years, and today is the co-creator/facilitator of our Discover Your Purpose and Fulfilling Your Life Purpose workshops.
