57. Dharma: Why are we all here?

Today on Tend Her Wild we dive into the topic of dharma and life purpose. “What is my purpose?” is one of the biggest questions we ask ourselves throughout the course of our lifetime.  Spending time meditating on it, thinking about it, diving into it, and then acting on it can be the greatest work you can do.


In today”s episode we discuss:

  • The definition of dharma and life purpose as a way to live our personal truth
  • How we identify what our dharma is and then live it authentically
  • Kate and Betsy’s personal dharmas and how today’s conversation shed some light on a new perspective that they didn’t expect
  • How living your dharma is your work but doesn’t have to be your job
  • Signs and messages that confirm you are aligned with your purpose

“The moment you marry yourself to the right purpose you become a force of nature” -George Bernard Shaw

Our champion this week is:

The great Harriet Tubman (in honor of Women’s History Month)
