The Great Work of Your Life

An incisive and inspiring meditation on finding your optimal vocation and life’s work by one of yoga’s great American masters, a book informed by the great Bhagavad Gita – yoga’s ancient treatise on finding your purpose.

Have you known days when you seemed to hum with a love for what you are doing? This is living your dharma, as the yogis would say. How do we hold onto that energized feeling? How do we find a vocation that allows us to bring it forth in the first place?

In his capacity as Director of the Institute for Extraordinary Living at the famed Kripalu Center, Stephen Cope has spent years considering dharma’s secrets through the lens of yoga’s ancient treatise, the Bhagavad Gita. A lengthy “conversation” between a young warrior in crisis and God in disguise, the Gita tells a universal story about the rocky path to finding and embracing one’s true calling. In The Great Work of Your Life, Cope shows how it has been a powerful influence in countless lives throughout history – from Harriet Tubman to Jane Goodall, Beethoven to Walt Whitman, Robert Frost to Gandhi and in countless “ordinary lives” and how its message can be an inspiration to us today, too.
