Ignite 07: Finding Meaning in Challenge


We often hear that “it’s always darkest just before dawn,” to the point where it has almost become cliche. It is a universal truth that we can learn from our trials and tribulations. Kazimierz Dabrowski would take it a step further to say that existential depression, anxiety and neuroses are positive things as long as they move us toward our higher selves and he believes that heightened intensity is a key factor in increasing our chances of doing just that.

In this workbook on Finding Meaning in Challenge, you will explore how you can use your challenges to find a deeper sense of meaning so that you can move forward with purpose.

Workbook Objectives:

  • Understand Dabrowski’s Theory of Positive Disintegration.

  • Clarify your values and purpose.

  • Develop mission and vision statements.

Praise for Ignite Your Power!

Lana, “I like the STAR process because it’s an answer to “I am feeling lost, what can I do right now? Becoming aware of what my sensitivities and excitabilities are has changed the way I approach my days. I give myself more rest and plan my tasks in a way that honors who I am.”

Sarah, “I just finished reading Workbook 2 and am super excited to use the exercises with my boyfriend as we navigate moving to a new country together! Lots of excitement, lots of intensity, and plenty of superpowers!! Thank you for creating such a GREAT workbook, Aurora! I also just really like workbooks and yours are potent, well written, concise, and actually easy to WORK WITH. So, keep doing what you do!”

Anne-Louise, “I’ve read the second workbook and I found it to be very well organized and well written. It flowed beautifully (in my opinion). You did an excellent job of defining terms and concepts, making those concepts accessible and understandable, and then structuring them in actionable ways. I could also relate to the material on a personal level and felt that what is contained there is hugely beneficial to your audience/those you are seeking to help.”

Gina, “Thank you for letting me read this! There is a good amount of helpful information and activities for someone to work through this topic. I appreciated the flow and balance between reading and doing.”
