Mindcamp Choice Session Description
Flame Your Passion
Ignite your personal and professional passions
Mind U sessionAre you feeling stuck and want to clarify your passion and purpose so you can have a more positive impact in the workplace and/or in society?
This passion session will use storytelling, case studies, and play to explore your personal and professional passions. We’ll reflect on body tells for what makes us feel alive and co-develop hacks to flame our passions. Everyone will leave the session with an ancient Japanese framework called ikigai, your reason for being, to begin mapping out where your passions intersect with your purpose, which the world needs and is willing to pay for.
Everyone has the right to explore and express our passions but we face different structural, interpersonal and internalized barriers. Yet passion is universal. It’s an energy that is powerful enough to heal, motivate, and fuel us. Passion can also spark social movements and create systems change when harnessed for collective good. With this awareness, we tap into our passions so we can individually live our purpose and collectively shift systems to benefit all.
The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session
- Find more clarity in your passions and/or awaken dreams that have been dormant
- Fire up your motivation to pursue what you (re)discover during the session
- Strengthen your capacity to explore passion and purpose by learning tools that incorporate anti-oppression, neuro-science, positive psychology, and pleasure activist principles
