My Invitation to You
The youths pictured in this guidebook have each accessed an experience of personal calling, personal meaning, that has motivated and guided them into action in the world in service of others. Of course, in the act of serving others, these youths have also entered the adult society, created meaning for themselves, developed and enhanced their capabilities, and promoted their own unfoldment as persons.
For each of these youths, their service has no doubt been the best education possible.
Every human being has the potential to find a calling, a purpose, and to contribute to the betterment of all.
For some, this may sound like a radical assertion. Are there not special individuals who have qualities and capacities that are not present in the rest of us? This is an assertion that many cultures assert for the purpose of social control. What would happen if all humans discovered and enacted their own callings? Would it not be of great value to us all to find out?
You can invite youths to explore their own potential experience of calling by engaging them in invitational experiences of imagination. The remainder of this guidebook will equip you with the initial skills for conducting these experiences.
