Let’s face it; we all have a motivating drive to become “better.” What we have and who we are never seem to be good enough. This feeling that something is wrong or needs to be fixed causes us to continuously run around, chasing after what we feel will finally fulfill us. But what if these very conditions that we are constantly trying to escape from could be used as a way to awaken ourselves – to connect with the peace already within us?
This event includes a 30-minute yoga flow, a talk, a guided seated meditation, an introduction to walking meditation, and time for Q and A. The cost of the this event also includes a copy of his book: Be Your Sh*tty Self: an Honest Approach to a More Peaceful Life.
