Everyone has a purpose. What's yours?

A question that's important for all ages, all are welcome to explore this topic at these upcoming Purpose Workshops!

If you could relive your life, what would you do differently? When retirees answered this question, most said they'd:

-Take risks to pursue their dreams

-Find their purpose earlier in life

Attend a free Purpose Workshop and find your true purpose-that unique thing that makes you your best. Start living yours and add 7 years to your life. It's your life, so live it fully! Take home tools you need to be the best possible you!

Continue the exploration by joining a Moai!

Belonging to a group of supportive, like-minded people who share your passion for healthy living, including being able to articulate your purpose, might be the single-most powerful thing you can do to change your lifestyle for the better. In one study looking at the impact of ties with friends and relatives, club membership, and level of volunteerism, those with the most social connections tended to live the longest.

The most important thing you can do is spend time with people who support healthy habits-yours and their own. All of the world's longest-lived people were born into-or consciously chose to associate with-supportive, healthy-minded people.

What is a Moai?

The notion of Moai-which roughly means "meeting for a common purpose" -originated as a means of social, emotional, and financial support in the longevity hotspot of Okinawa, Japan.

What is a Purpose Moai?

A Blue Zones Project Purpose Moai is a group of 5-12 people who regularly gather together to share in exploration and conversations surrounding the concept of purpose. Ideally, the group commits to meeting at least once per week over the course of ten weeks.
