Maia Duerr | Work That Matters

  • The Ark Bookstore 133 Romero Street Santa Fe, NM, 87501 United States (map)

Create a career that is an expression of your life's core intention with a mindfulness-based journey to clarify your highest calling, create a vision for meaningful vocation, and enact practical steps to make that vision a vivid reality.

So many of us feel trapped in wage slavery and deadened to our true talents and life's purpose. Or we've wandered through dozens of jobs and are left feeling adrift and without meaning in our lives. Livelihood is a source of great suffering for way too many.

From disenchanted alfalfa sprout packer to bombastic Buddhist Chaplain, author, and longtime meditator, Maia Duerr wandered through dozens of jobs before she was able to examine the emotional, psychological, and cultural barriers to creating work that expressed her life's core intention, what she calls "liberation-based livelihood."

Work is one of the primary vehicles for expressing our deepest selves. In Work That Matters, Duerr takes readers through a careful and comprehensive process that can lead to new insights, breakthroughs, and positive reformulation of their careers. Mindfulness practice is an invaluable tool in the process of gaining new perspective.  This book gives you the tools to create joyful work that embodies love and compassion--for yourself, and for the whole world.
