Will I ever feel like “me” again? Am I on the right track? How will I reach my dreams and find happiness? The seemingly random events that comprise our lives can be understood as serving a higher purpose when examined through the proper lens; they are in fact the critical steps that comprise our hero’s journey. Those who choose to travel this path will emerge completely transformed—healthier, happier, and in touch with their life’s purpose.

Author, professor, and California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) alumni Suzy Ross draws on her extensive research to create a map for those ready to embark on their most important adventure. By understanding the larger meaning of our circumstances from a bird’s eye perspective, we learn to rest in faith and confidence, freed from crippling judgment and self-blame. We will live more deliberately, consciously, and joyfully, while simultaneously heightening our experiences of change. In Dr. Ross' first book, The Map to Wholeness, she draws on her comprehensive qualitative research and identifies thirteen phases of personal transformation—processes that form an upright figure 8—to guide individuals along their paths toward wholeness.

Join Dr. Ross on a journey into holistic transformation that can impact every area of your life—social, emotional, financial, physical, and spiritual—allowing you to live more deliberately and joyfully

Copies of Dr. Ross' book The Map to Wholeness: Real-Life Stories of Crisis, Change, and Reinvention--Your Guide through the 13 Phases of Transformation will be available for sale at this event.
