I have some very good news about the Excellence Series of personal-growth courses formerly offered by Randy Revell of Context Associated. I took these courses about 10 years ago. My book Getting Past OK is very much in alignment with the ideas these courses are based on. Along with thousands of other graduates, I was sad at the announcement in January that Context would no longer be offering these courses.
The good news is that a group of graduates in the Seattle area has formed a nonprofit organization and has licensed the courses from Randy Revell to continue putting them on in the Seattle area. These are my favorite courses -- they are fun, full of content, and focused on individual fulfillment as a means to contribute to others.
I would encourage you, if you feel a pull to explore yourself further, to take the initial course "The Pursuit of Excellence" in Seattle June 3-6. You can call 206-675-8083 for more information or go to http://www.excellencefoundation.org to see what else is going on.
