Overview


We've all asked ourselves, “What should I do with my life?” “Where am I going?” “Is this what I really want?” Whether you're graduating, changing careers, getting divorced, retiring, or just confused about what's next, Your Personal Renaissance will help you find your calling. Combining the lost wisdom of the Renaissance with groundbreaking research in positive psychology, this book approaches a calling in its original definition-not just a job, but a joyous, meaningful life. The book features an innovative program of contemplative steps (Discovery, Detachment, Discernment, and Direction) and practices that help readers combat overscheduling, stress, and depression-and change their lives.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Boston Globe, 6/1/08
“While initially I thought it might be just a tad forced to put the Renaissance together with self-help, this wise little book soon changed my mind… The book's message is bolstered with empowering success stories about Renaissance figures like da Vinci, Galileo, and Giotto. ‘Renaissance’ means ‘rebirth,’ and when you think of it, what could be a more perfect metaphor for transformation?”

San Jose Mercury News
“For those direction-less souls among us [Dreher] has some answers…A book for those who strive to make their life a work of art”

Suite101.com
“Dreher lays out an orderly, well presented plan for moving to a life based on purpose…Following Your Personal Renaissance will require dedication, discipline, and a willingness to explore your inner thoughts and beliefs. Success at building life around purpose is well worth it.”

Career Planning and Adult Development Journal, 2009-2010
“Dreher provides a powerful antidote to the get happy quick style of all too many self-help books…[A] well-written collection of practical and inspiring advice…Intentional career changers, people responding to changes in the economy and employment opportunity, and career professionals will all find this book profoundly valuable.”
