E.H. Rick Jarow, Ph.D. has transformed the way the world thinks about their work, purpose and vocation. As the pioneer of the anti-career movement and author of Creating the Work You Love, he has helped thousands open to their intuition, transform their values into action, and answer their true calling… instead of settling for yet another job. In the last few years, Rick’s work has centered around the art and science of manifestation (as offered in his book and workshop, The Alchemy of Abundance). Similar to his work in career and vocation, these teachings transcend the overly simplistic approach made popular by the movie, “The Secret” and other get-what-you-want philosophies. They dive deeper – into the alchemical possibilities of loving what is, recognizing your greater purpose and moving towards your own healed vision, on both an individual and a cultural level.
Every year, Rick travels the world to teach workshops on The Alchemy of Abundance, Creating the Work You Love, and other special focus seminars. But his home base is Poughkeepsie, New York, where he works as an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Vassar College. A former Mellon Fellow in the Humanities at Columbia University, and chair of the Carolyn Grant ’36 Endowment Committee on embodied learning and the mythic imagination, Rick has a rich background in the world of academia, as well as years of personal, in-depth study in eastern and western spiritual traditions, mythology, astrology and shamanism. http://www.rickjarow.com
