The Awaken Program with Sean Sessel, #EmergentHuman by The Emergent Human Podcast with host published on 2022-04-02T16:03:30Z Welcome to “The Emergent Human” where we explore Optimizing Health, Embodied Spirituality and Post Conventional Living. Ostrolenk speaks with Sean Sessel, head of The Oculus Institute (https://www.oculusinstitute.com/) and a voracious learner with a fervent belief in the ability of the individual to better themselves. Through the Awaken Program (which shows people how to escape burnout jobs and craft careers that truly inspire them), Sean has found a means of enduring impact working with over a thousand different people. Sean discusses how his interest in helping people craft their dream careers grew out of his strength of absorbing, processing, and transmitting information and his deep interest in esoteric studies. He details five types of jobs: 1. A toxic work environment; 2. An unfulfilling job; 3. A bridge-job (short-term enjoyable); 4. A calling job; 5. A destiny/optimal career path. Through his framework (find first what do you love, then what the world needs, then how do you make money with it, and finally develop how do you get good at it), he helps his clients get to at least a calling job. Sean aims to ensure potential clients start with the best-fit program for their current situation. To find out more about his work, visit www.oculusinstitute.com/purposequiz. The quiz will let you know where you fall on the metrics of career fulfillment, financial success, and internal alignment and recommend which program is best for you.
