To know your true calling, your dharma as the yogis say, is perhaps the greatest desire within each of us. And yet, few can say we know our purpose with absolute certainty. Fortunately, there is a time-tested guide-an ancient map-for discovering and fulfilling your unique calling.

In The Great Work of Your Life, Cope uses Arjuna's journey as a framework for each of us to discover our own dharma, masterfully weaving together stories of both well-known and ordinary Western lives. Throughout the book, Cope explores the "Four Pillars of Dharma," or the stages we move through as we fulfill our own true callings. Each pillar is illustrated with riveting true stories, including:

  • Jane Goodall's ability to follow her heart without question
  • The little known tale of Walt Whitman's dharma discovery in the second half of life
  • How living your purpose can be like training for the Olympics in the story of Susan B. Anthony
  • Ludwig van Beethoven's triumphs over childhood abuse, depression, and going deaf
  • Gandhi's transformation from tongue-tied youth to leader of the Indian independence movement
  • Understanding how divine guidance works through the life of Harriet Tubman
  • Additional insights and tales from the lives of both famous luminaries and everyday people

Moving and inspiring, The Great Work of Your Life is a call to action and step-by-step guide for each of us to discover and embrace our dharma.
