The defining factor is not where you are physically — age, stage of life, geography. The question is: What are your core values? Are you merely a reflection of the world around you or do you have the courage and self-honesty to explore the world and find out for yourself what you deeply believe?
People imagine the goal of life is a physical destination filled with material things. In fact, the goal of life is who you will become through the things you do. What kind of a person do you want to be? Before you can define your destination you have to know deeply within yourself who you are.
The quest begins with a grand vision. But between here and the fulfilment of that vision there are many long days and nights. Look to the far horizon, then look down at your feet. One step at a time, that is how a successful life is made. Will power and perseverance, and practical idealism. These are the keys.
In this workshop we will explore:
- how to use personal challenges to attain personal growth thru yogic principles.
- how to lift your consciousness through practical proven techniques that will help you live more fearlessly in a world that is programmed to induce stress and anxiety.
- how to help find that inner connection which will not only can guide you through times of uncertainly but help expand your awareness to find greater unity and harmony beyond what appearances lead you to believe.
