Are you living your hero’s journey that’s driven by purpose and direction? So many of us aren’t and we’re completely misguided by our hidden intentions — but not all hope’s lost! Colin Beavan, coach, writer, consultant, dharma teacher and social change activist, challenges you to take the deepest, darkest journey of your life: finding who you are.

Colin’s most recently the author of How To Be Alive: A Guide To The Kind Of Happiness That Helps The World. He first attracted international attention for his yearlong lifestyle redesign project and the worldly popular book No Impact Man that ultimately inspired a Sundance-selected documentary film. Colin has appeared on Nightline, Good Morning America, The Montell Williams Show and NPR to share his story. He’s been featured in news outlets from Time Magazine to the New York Times. Colin’s a renowned speaker and consults with individuals and organizations on living and operating in ways that marry prosperity with the promotion of peace, happiness, justice, right action and goodwill.
