How To Figure Out Your True Purpose During A Voluntary or Involuntary Inflection Point Your Life, Marshall Dunn, A Sydney-Based Conscious Mentor Explains Exactly How, Episode 60

Do you know what your higher purpose is? This is a multidimensional and thoughtful discussion that can help even the busiest city slicker understand exactly how to pause and bear witness to their true purpose. This is a much-needed and timely metaphorical “time out” that will help you start or continue on your personal journey towards becoming more present, self-compassionate, and in tune with the “real” you, not the “masked” you. Included in this conversation between two humans who were raised in different hemispheres, you will find a globally applicable step-by-step exercise to gain a deeper understanding of your essence. You are invited to bookmark this exercise highlighted towards the end of our talk and share it with other “seekers.”

So whether you are in NY or Sydney or anywhere in between you are welcome to take notes from Marshall Dunn. He is a Spiritual Healer & Conscious Mentor, Meditation Teacher, Author & Podcaster who lived in NY yet is currently back home in Sydney, Australia. His life purpose is to help people shift perception and clear the past, deep heal the future, and experience true freedom. His work is to bring people home to their True Nature in order to make meaningful change in their lives and step into their Greater Destiny. 

For over 15 years he’s been on a spiritual path of self-discovery, continuously sitting within myself, following the inner-movement of Spirit through himself. He has written two books – “Letters to Mitch: The Healing Power of Grief, Love & Truth” and “The Good Life: 10 Ways Death Teaches Us How To Live”, and is a host of his own podcast, Marshall Dunn’s Soul Hour Podcast (formerly Heart House Radio Podcast). On his podcast he has had over 120 conversations with inspiring leaders across the globe on spirituality and healing, creativity, science and conscious entrepreneurship. As context, he taught meditation, hosted workshops and given talks in New York City and Sydney at Universal Music Group (UMG), Barclays, Acast, The Assemblage, Slyp, WeWork, L&A Social, along with reputable Sydney private schools such as Loreto Kirribilli and Chevalier College. He also holds an M.A. in Clinical Psychology in Education from the Mind, Body & Spiritual Practice at Columbia University.
