Inspiring Purposeful Living

Purposeful living means living with a clear sense of why we’re here. It means approaching our lives intentionally, including combining our gifts, passions, and values into a sense of calling, leading to purposeful action in the world, in service of a greater good.

We’re the Vail Alliance for Purposeful Living, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Alliance programs, both online and in-person, support individuals as they navigate life and work transitions and their self-renewal.
