The GPE is comprised of the 10 most effective purpose exercises I have encountered. I created these exercises based on the contributions of my key influences (Bill Plotkin, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Michael Meade, Jonathan Gustin, Tim Kelley, Rod Stryker, etc.) and other leaders in the soul/purpose space. The GPE is designed to be your first stop on your purpose journey, a progression of exercises moving you deeper into your purpose.
UInlike most purpose courses, the GPE is an expedition. It is an active endeavor. It is not about sitting in a cave and contemplating. Sure, there are exercises that are done alone, but every week, you will take an action to bring your life and relationships into alignment with you you really are. You’ll do this via the VITAL Conversation Framework. A VITAL conversation is: Vulnerable, Integrous, Transformational, Active, and comes from Love. In these conversations, you’ll share what you are discovering and begin to transform the key relationships in your life, such that they express and support your life’s purpose.
Although this course is one of the most effective online purpose discovery programs, your experience will be unique to you. You will love some of the exercises, some might do nothing for you and may fully land for you weeks or months after the GPE completes. That is just the nature of this work. There is nothing wrong if you don’t get a big breakthrough with each and every exercise. However, there is a great chance that by the end of the course, you will be much more deeply connected to your purpose and have the clarity, confidence and courage to take action on it.
Before you begin, you will get clear on where you are right now on your journey. You will also get clear about your reasons for starting and completing the Global Purpose Expedition. Purpose Assessment Tool #1 - you’ll discover how connected you are currently to your purpose, how empowered you are to take action on it and how purpose-aligned your life is already. You’ll also get clear on all your reasons to find, live and lead with your purpose, everything that could go wrong if you decide to live your purpose, and all the reasons you will give to stop doing the Global Purpose Expedition. You will retake the Purpose Assessment Tool at the end to see how far you have come.
Hearing the Call (Weeks 1-2)
During this phase, you’ll get connected to what is pulling you into a big life of purpose and how humanity stands to benefit from you coming fully online with your purpose.
The Search (Weeks 3-4)
During this phase, you are leaving home and exploring the beyond. You are searching for signs of what your life’s purpose might be, looking more deeply at what breaks your heart. Also during this phase, if it hasn’t happened already, the new possibilities for a more purposeful life will arise and you WILL encounter resistance to this work, to the perceived implications, considerations and constraints this new information reveals. You will begin to confront your purpose and get hooked by reasons why you cannot do this, or why now is not the right time. This is collectively referred to as “The Trials” - your resistance to change, your fear of leaving home. We will address all of your concerns, implications, constraints and considerations in the following phase, “The Trials”.
This phase is the most intense and rewarding part of the expedition. Your pre-purpose life is protected by a formidable web of resistance. To actually find and embody your purpose, you’ll need to be tested, to endure and navigate The Trials of your resistance. In this phase, we’ll look at all the ways you have historically been stuck or blocked from finding your purpose and taking purposeful action.
Now that you have passed The Trials, and your resistance is catalogued, you have two new powers: 1. you have the power to overcome your resistance to living your purpose and 2. you’ve got a wide, clear channel to uncover more purpose information. In this phase, you’ll do powerful soul encounter methods to reveal hidden aspects of your life’s purpose.
The Return (Weeks 9-10)
With this new information about your purpose, your task is now to integrate this awareness and then moving it out into the world. This phase is where you descend to your roots and ignite your Purpose Project. You’ll get connected to the people you are meant to serve in the world, experience what it feels like to communicate from your life’s purpose, and see your Purpose Project come to fruition. In seeing your purpose live in the world as a project, you will be ordained into a full, rich life of soul. As Mark Zuckerberg illuminates, “Ideas don’t come out fully formed. They only become clear as you work on them. You just have to get started.”
What happens when the Global Purpose Expedition is over?
Whatever your purpose dictates that you should do, you will begin to do. Here are a few options:
Once you are a GPE graduate, you will have the opportunity to connect with your global tribe of purpose-awakened leaders, other people who are committed to the same things as you, by joining a purpose-driven alumni group that supports you and your purpose project. In this group you can share articles, developments and best practices, ask for advice, and connect and collaborate with your fellow purposeful leaders around what matters most to you, your life’s purpose. Once you complete the program, you can join any of these alumni groups (or start one of your own) to take on big purposeful projects and create a purposeful movement in your field:
“I recommend this program to any person who wants to find their purpose in life. This is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Until today I was not really sure of what I wanted, but now I know so much about myself I can't ever get lost again. The support I got from the group was very useful, it made me feel comfortable and that I was not alone in this journey. I thank Brandon and the team for everything they did!” Izabella S.
“I have spent 64 years trying to ‘figure it out’ and Brandon helped me cut to the chase!” Cheri A.
“I would recommend doing this program to anyone. It is the most important course I have ever done. Not only have I found a new lust for life, I also learned some basic truths about myself. I now know that, if in doubt, I have to consult my various personas to remove any hesitancy. This course taught me newfound respect for myself and also the people that I encounter, and will meet in the future.” Paul Z.
“This course was an incredible inner journey, a marathon that pushed me past my old fears, catalyzed a shift in my thinking and empowered me to embrace my gifts. Brandon Peele is a genuine teacher who is a gifted storyteller and whose vulnerability empowered me to find my gold. Thanks to the course, I am now part of a purpose revolution. Join us!” Leo N.
“It is a challenge!!!! You will have to open your mind and your feelings, be honest with yourself to state what you really, really want and what makes you feel happy and successful in the main areas of your life. This is an excellent way to find out where you are now, what you need to do to get where you want to be, knowing for sure what that means.” Marco A.
“This is a wonderful and powerful opportunity to give to yourself. It's a gift, not an assignment, and the heart and sincerity you put into it will spread like the rings from a drop of water in a clear lake.” June H.
“I absolutely enjoyed this course. The course is very well articulated, and provides greats insights and tools to move forward towards a purposeful life. Brandon Peele clearly knows what he is talking about, and in this program, he nicely brought together some key learning materials for anyone who wants to get closer to the full expression of their being and live purposefully. Personal insights, self introspection, working on resistance, communication, initiating a purpose project, connecting and reaching out for support, taking action - all the important elements of a purposeful journey are in there. I'd recommend the course to anyone.” Jerome M.
“This program turned out to be such a revelation, in many useful ways - say, in how I view myself, realities of this world, and what I can do about it... then, no, of course it's not about ‘it’ - rather, it's about myself, my ability to define my world, and make it work. I can't comment enough on Brandon's daily words of wisdom - almost every time, he would touch some parts of my consciousness, its nerve - seamlessly guessing, correctly, the very things that are bearing on my mind. Felt like Deja vu sometimes… what this world is really missing is its purpose, being declared loudly, followed relentlessly, and judged by no one but god's will... before it's too late.” Vladimir V.
“If you've been struggling with knowing why you are here on the planet, or maybe you know but can't quite bring it out, this is the course for you! Learning from a relatable, honest and open-hearted visionary is an opportunity not to be missed. On a personal note, I learned that I can turn my wounds into medicine. I can see the ways in which I felt unsafe and unheard to give that safety, connection and support to others. The container of the group was so supportive and it took the work to a deeper level by being able to share in the safety of the group and have feedback on my progress and then also give support to others.” Julia C.
“This course offered me the chance to get to know myself better and to start making choices in my life based upon my purpose. I am conscious of my talents and attributes and how I can serve the world going forward. Anyone who puts in the work will be amazed at the insights and rewards. Awesome group of caring people here! Thank you!” Debbie M.
“This course is a powerful masterpiece. It moves one from questioning what that thing is that makes your heart sing, to creating an actionable, exciting project that will bring more clarity, joy and vitality into your life.” Myrna B.
“I'm a self-help junkie and have done so many different programs, most of which I haven't completed. This time I convinced my mom to do it with me, and although she was hesitant, she agreed. We both gained interesting insights and really enjoyed talking about each of the exercises. I really felt like this program actually lead to tangible results! Truly an awesome experience! Especially when shared!” Tiffany A.
“Having spent a few years working on self improvement, transformation and finding a path in life. I have always struggled to feel connected to my version of my purpose. This course gave me practical steps and actions to take to deliver on this. It was an In-Action course which was fantastic and engaged me constantly.” Katherine O.
“This course provided me with a time-bound, team-supported, clearly structured program to learn about myself and my purpose. Brandon and his team are excellent motivators - highly recommend it!” Mickey K.
“This program is very thorough, with many explanations, tools and presentations and is the best way to achieve a specific life purpose for the individual that I have come across in my 92 years of life. I had participated previously with two teachers on the subject of life purpose and so I can evaluate what a wonderful instructive program is presented here.” Marlyse K.
“Well thought out and very professionally presented programme. Great tools and ongoing practices. Really helped me re-look at my sense of meaning and purpose and re-connect with strands, passions and people in my life. Thank you for putting it together.” Dirk R.
“The course is outstanding in it's format and the way it allows people to move through the steps of aligning with their purpose in a way that is simple, yet inspirational and highly rewarding. I found Brandon's ability to relate exceptional and very motivational - I have never been so inspired or committed to complete any previous course or the like. I feel sure it has and will continue to positively change my life as well as other people in my circle. Having purpose is life.” Neville S.
