About ❣️

The Center for Loving Studies is dedicated to eradicating suicides and accidental deaths from drug and alcohol overdoses.

We recognize that in order to have hope people need to experience and understand their purpose with a path to success. We help local groups teach about the power of Love and build global communities for everyone to thrive.

The Center leads community change initiatives, publishes original books and resources, facilitates conferences and professional development, and provides strategic consulting. We work at multiple levels of scale, with local, regional, state, and national programs.


The Center was founded in 2019 as a nonprofit dedicated to the education of purposeful living by Darwin Stephenson, author and spiritual teacher.

The Center supports leaders in cultivating conditions for social impact and sustainable systemic change. Major projects include our Purpose Project®, our hands-on workshop for helping individuals discover their purpose, build supportive communities and plot a course for success and happiness. Our Education for Purposeful  Living seminars have attracted participants from five continents and 40 states.

We have published numerous books and articles, including choose Love and Inspiration Divine.

Our Vision

We believe that each and every one of us has a Divinely inspired purpose and through that purpose we can achieve lasting success and happiness. Through our guidance, we help individuals discover and achieve their purpose. In the process, we help build community which expands to help others discover, pursue and achieve their purpose too.

We focus on helping people that need our help the most. Accordingly, we work in communities that have are experiencing suicides and accidental deaths from alcohol and drug overdoses. By helping those that have lost hope find purpose in their lives, we believe that we can turn this epidemic around and save tens of thousands of lives a year.

Our Approach

We work with local communities to run workshops and teacher trainings so that the message of choose Love can reach rural communities that need our help the most.
