Find Your Life Purpose

Find Life Purpose – Journey to Your Heart’s Desire


Online Course:  9 Lessons | 10 Meditation Techniques | 9 Integration Exercises


Category: .

Come on an exciting yogic journey to discover your life purpose in a structured, guided online course.

We all want to unravel the mystery of our life purpose… And we all can.

Life purpose isn’t for a chosen few. Every being on the planet has a life purpose. Knowing it is a great blessing. Living it brings meaning and fulfillment to every part of your life.

But life purpose is often derailed by confusion and inner conflict.

The desires we have for our family, work, learning, social life, and personal development can feel as though they are pitted against each other. This can put the search for life purpose on the backburner, often permanently.

But both ancient wisdom and modern medical science tell us that purpose significantly impacts physical and psychological wellbeing. With a greater purpose to our existence, we can live a longer, healthier, and more fulfilling life.

The good news is that life purpose need not remain a mystery.

The Find Life Purpose course is a structured, practical and inspiring study of your authentic nature, needs and wants.

Carefully woven Theory, Meditation Practices, and Integration Exercises deliver a calm, focused, practical, yet intuitive journey.

Lesson-by-lesson, you will move ever-closer to your core desires, culminating in your heart’s desire – your life purpose.

Once you make the connection, your purpose can then develop into the central, organizing principle of your life.

What You Will Learn

Expand your vision of what’s possible for your life.

Learn powerful yoga-tantra meditations that remove negative patterns, the patterns that stop you from seeing yourself with clarity so that you can invest in what is important to you.

Develop positive patterns for cognizing your talents, skills, and strengths.

Discover what you really want – not what you think you want.

Learn the intuitive way to connect with your desires that disrupts your thinking mind.

This revelatory process has created 180-degree change in direction for some students.

Identify the 3 types of purpose that govern your life.

No other course or book outlines the different types of purpose that govern all of human life.

Our teachers of Yoga and Tao taught this ancient way of seeing purpose. This knowledge enables you to envision your life in a whole new way.

Understand your desires.

Understand why you hold certain desires.

Learn to discern between your unimportant, outdated and unachievable desires, and your essential, relevant and achievable desires; those that promise long-term meaning and fulfillment and empower your life purpose.

S-NaylorThe life purpose course gave me deeper insight into my most important desires. It shook me up about my relationship to my resolve, my sankalpa. When I studied the lesson on desires something shifted in me forever more. The course created new inner tools and put Yoga Nidra into a whole new, more empowering context.

Activate and express your life purpose.

Learn how to harness your intention through a resolve (called a sankalpa in Sanskrit) that works both in sleep and waking life.

Take your purpose out of your head into the grounded, reality of everyday life.

Since doing the course and practicing the techniques, I’ve noticed how my intention and resolve invisibly works its way into everything I say and do… The ability to clearly see the road ahead makes me feel confident I’ll be able to walk it!

B-RobsonThank you for helping me to sort through my subconscious ‘too hard’ basket; for the inspiration and guidance. The course has helped me navigate my way out of some extremely murky water. No, it wasn’t easy but, Yes! I am healed! You have created an excellent course with very powerful practices, as my first resolve (Sankalpa) already came true!!

Course Elements


From the vast pool of yogic knowledge, you will explore the fundamental concepts that enable you to find and fulfill your life purpose. You will learn about:

  • the power and structure of the subconscious mind
  • the chakra system as related to needs, desires, and purpose
  • what dharma is and isn’t
  • how inner desires relate to worldly goals
  • the 3 types of purposes that govern human life,
  • the four stages of life
  • how purpose can be transformed and spiritualized even if it feels egoic or materialistic.

Meditation Practices

The course integrates traditional yoga-tantra meditations with innovative embodied practices that are unique to Big Shakti.

You will discover the desires and energy within the chakras and how to channel that energy into a laser-like intention.

Unearth the seed of your purpose through time travel and powerful techniques that help you to create and activate a firm resolve that brings your purpose to fruition.

Integration Exercises

Integration Exercises enable you to alchemize the theory with the meditations into your own being. There is little point in obtaining an intellectual understanding of life purpose and practicing meditations that cannot be taken out of the meditation space and put to practical use in your life.

The exercises ask questions relevant to each lesson’s learning, enabling you to put the insights gained from the knowledge and meditation in tangible form. One student called this the bible of their life, which they have continued to use long after the course is complete.

E-PlattnerI really appreciate the course format. It’s easy to follow and I feel I can go at my own speed. This makes it possible for me to truly embody the principles I am learning, I have gained deep insight into what I really want and moved away from patterns that don’t serve me. I am much more aware of my own genuine truths. I continue to use the course to guide my life. Thank you!

Who is this course for?

This course is for you if you want to find or refine your purpose; or, if you already know your life purpose but have not yet begun to live it.

If you have read all the books and still can’t find or achieve lasting results, then this course provides the information, the tools, plus the technology, and the integration that enable you to connect deeply and achieve your purpose.

claire_blackI undertook the course at a time when I needed to examine closely the possibilities for the next stage of my life. I had just resigned from my job and had not yet formulated the next stage. The course gave me the framework to work through all my desires and arrive at a set of priorities that I really believe in, and can focus on, without niggling doubts. If I had not undertaken this study, my mind would still be swirling in a confused state of possibilities, questions and doubts. I now find myself very calm, focused and excited about my future. I highly recommend that anybody seeking clarity and focus to commit to working through this course.

A message from course TeachersSwami Shankardev and Jayne Stevenosn

No matter your circumstances, skills, talents, or stage of life, your purpose is waiting to be illuminated, enlivened, and expressed.

Follow our step-by-step instructions, and you will forge a potent path to your heart.

By the final lesson, you will see that your life purpose has been there all along, obscured by overthinking, worry, and lack of self-awareness and self-knowledge. In this sense, we are simply teaching you to remove the blocks and awaken your awareness so that you finally see your true Self.

Big Shakti training programs are designed to be studied in short, increments that fit with your busy life.

Title: Find Life Purpose

Authors: Dr. Swami Shankardev Saraswati and Jayne Stevenson

Publisher: Big Shakti

Media: Online Course


First of all, Thank You very much for sharing this knowledge with us and for your warm guidance. The Find Life Purpose course is so useful for me. It prompted me to ask myself many questions which were lying dormant deep inside me for a long time. Now the answers are revealing themselves to me!

It’s not so easy to stay focused on purpose in daily life and to maintain inner peace. It takes time, so I now give myself that time. I continue with your truly wonderful meditations in the way the course prescribes. All this is helping my work, my play, and my whole life.


When I reached Lesson 8. of the Find Life Purpose course I found my resolve (sankalpa). I realized that I had so many directions and interests and that the thing holding me back was my manipura chakra, my lack of power.

I made my sankalpa; “I am becoming self-disciplined, confident and courageous”. Soon after I joined the local Labour Party and have since been appointed Vice President. This has given me a venue to express my creative ideas, one of which is to put a track out to the end of South East Cape of Tasmania, the most southern point of Australia.

My vision to help shape a future for this region has been well received and taken up by others. I have also moved towards developing a berry farm and enrolled in a berry production course, something I have toyed with doing for a very long time. In all aspects of my life, I feel the power to move forward… so THANK YOU!

During the 9-week Find Life Purpose course, I learned a great deal about myself and my life’s path. What kept surprising me was how my desires are ever-changing. I realized this in the deep meditation we practiced. In discovering how my desires show up according to the four aims and four stages of life, and through the chakras, I am now able to visualize what lies ahead, before it happens! With this understanding, I am learning how to choose which desires will benefit me in my life, and which ones will block me from moving towards my purpose.

I continue to use the course material ongoing as a tool and a guide on my life path. It is keeping me awake and conscious of where I’m heading and the choices I am making. The course resonates beyond the study and continues to bring me back to my Heart’s Desire each time I stray. I look forward to sharing some of the insights I’ve gained on my journey with my own yoga/meditation students so that they may awaken to their own consciousness.

Many thanks to you, Jayne, and Dr. Swami Shankardev for sharing this wonderfully insightful course with all those who seek to find their Heart’s Desire.
