Last week, I hosted and facilitated the 3rd Purpose and Vision Navigator Training Certification Program at my institution (University of North Carolina at Greensboro). Unlike the previous two trainings, this group was MUCH different than the last two groups in that: (1) It was much smaller than previous groups – 19 participants, (2) most of the participants were from UNCG (13 of 19 were from UNCG). It was a true joy to watch them bond quickly and intimately, then learn and share so much so deeply! A great learning experience, not just for them, but for me as well! On the left is the group photo taken on the last day of the workshop:
And thank you all for supporting me as I continued to process throughout the workshop two family tragedies over the course of the past 3 months! You all made this a treasured experience for me, more than words can say! I hope to see many of you for the December 2015 Training!

What is a Purpose and Vision Navigator? A Purpose and Vision Navigator (PVN) is similar to a life coach, except they specifically assists others with life exploration, helping them to “find their why.” PVN’s facilitate experiential learning opportunities towards a meaningful path(s), as well as empower students/clients to create experiences that matter to them. Become a trained Navigator to serve others on your campus and in your community!
