Give Your Gift

At the heart of Give Your Gift is the idea of your gift. You could also call it your life purpose, your vocation, or your vow

Your gift is where your skills and dreams meet the world’s needs and problems. It is an act of service that is deeply joyful for you to give, and that the world is deeply grateful to receive. 

Our goal is to help you gain clarity on your gift, and to help you to begin to give that gift to the world.

Give Your Gift is a six week program designed to help you find and give your gifts to the world. You’ll gain increased clarity what your values, strengths, goals, and dreams are. We’ll use that clarity to help you identify specific projects you could create to give your unique gifts to the world as an act of love and service.

There is a limit of twelve places in the program. Participation is selective and available only by application (applications close on July 8th). This will help us ensure that you and your peers are a good fit for this special opportunity.

You will be accompanied by peers and friends who are highly talented and yearn to be of benefit in the world. Together, we will take actionable steps towards being of service in the world, learn more about ourselves, and have fun doing it.

This is our first time running this program. We expect that the ripples of this program will be felt in our communities and the world for years to come. We hope you’ll join us.

The Program

August 1st — September 7th, 2022

Wednesdays 12:00 PM–1:30 PM
All times US Eastern Time (New York).

Give Your Gift consists of six 90-minute live group sessions, with lectures, discussion, and exercises; one joint coaching session with Tasshin and Mary; and a project assignment that you’ll work on during the cohort. 

The six weeks will have two chapters:

Discover Your GiftGive Your Gift
Week 1: Launch
Week 2: Values
Week 3: Gifts
Week 4: Productivity
Week 5: Strategy
Week 6: Landing

To help you Discover Your Gift, you’ll receive a unique joint coaching call with Tasshin and Mary. For two hours, we’ll ask you about your life story, your vision and dreams for the next five years of your life, and ask questions to surface more about your skills, gifts, and hopes. You’ll be surprised and delighted by the insights you’ll learn about yourself and the dots you’ll connect.

To help you Give Your Gift, you’ll receive a project assignment from Tasshin—a specific idea and next step towards giving your gift. The aim is to suggest something that you’re excited about, which will be fun for you, beneficial for the world, feasible for where you’re currently at but will also challenge you to grow. You’ll have a milestone for what to do by the time the course completes, as well as a vision for what to do in the following months after the course ends.

It’s a place to gain momentum on the project that’s been in the back of your mind, that you long to give to the world. 

It’s a community of dedicated, powerful, inspired, delightful people, who will cheer you on with every step that you take. 

Participating in this program will result in a project that is a gift to the world, but it’s also a gift to you: a gift of purpose, joy, meaning, fulfillment, and growth.

Program Leaders

Tasshin Fogleman

Coach


I’m an extremely online wandering quasi-monk on indefinite pilgrimage for the benefit of all beings.

I trained for nearly five years at the Monastic Academy, where I deepened my meditation practice and spiritual path and did extensive leadership training.

I have three main endeavors: spreading love, following my curiosity, and empowering others.

It brings me tremendous joy to see people deeply, to help move them towards giving their deepest gifts to the world, and to watch the benefits compound and ripple out.

Mary Bajorek

Coach


I believe in creating a world where all of us are doing work that is an expression of who we are and the impact we want to make. A world where each of us lives meaningfully, courageously and unapologetically in connection with each other and ourselves.
 
Through my work as a work life coach in a business I started over two years ago, Lifeworthloving Coaching, I have guided dozens of people from all over the world in a myriad of professions to gain clarity on what’s important to them, work through external and internal blocks and make choices that lead them to share their gifts in a way that best supports both them and what the world needs. 

I love people, facilitating transformative experiences through creative forms and seeing each other as learners.

James Stuber

Course Manager


 I’m a Research Engineer at a fusion energy startup and a productivity coach. I believe everyone can build the capacity to accomplish great things. 

As a 1:1 coach, a mentor to Building a Second Brain students, and as co-creator of the Digital Productivity Coach, I’ve helped thousands of people improve their productivity. In teaching so many students, I’ve learned that productivity is not about forcing yourself to do things, but about setting up the right systems to make achieving your goals easier.

I’m excited to be of service while you discover your gift and implement your project.
