Unabridged Edition
Running Time
3 Hrs. 40 Min.


Few writers approach the topic of life purpose with the clarity of Dan Millman, whose prior book The Life You Were Born to Live reached more than a million readers worldwide. In The Four Purposes of Life, Millman distills decades of exploration and experience into a concise map of what we’re here to accomplish on our life’s journey.

This book is for anyone seeking deeper insight into themselves and their lives, but especially for those at a crossroads, facing a challenge or change, when our past approaches no longer work.

These four purposes — learning life's lessons, finding your career and calling, discovering your life path, and attending to this arising moment — bring your life into sharper focus by revealing:

• the value of everyday challenges in relationships, health, work, and money

• how to make wiser decisions in career and relationships

• our twelve required courses in the school of life

• a mysterious system that highlights your hidden calling

• keys to mastering the most important purpose of all

The Four Purposes of Life can generate a quantum leap in self-knowledge, insight, and wisdom. The seeds planted will bear fruit for years to come.
