What is dharma?

According to Stephen Cope, who wrote The Great Work of Your Life, “The Sanskrit word “dharma,” as used in the Bhagavad Gita, is so full of meaning that it is impossible to grasp its full scope through any English translation.” Wow. At its core, you could consider it your life’s meaning and purpose. For this workshop, we’ll use Stephen’s book as inspiration for identifying something that is important to you and on which you would like to put more focus to get more satisfaction out of life.
