Tapping into Desires that Serve You with Loren Crawford
We all have desires. Some traditions teach that desires are the root to suffering. But desires are necessary and inherent to our very prosperity and even our survival. The challenge though is attachment to our desires - their outcomes, and when beliefs are mistaken for desires. Tapping into Desires that Serve You uses activities and practices that help you discover the desires that are aligned with your soul, not simply your beliefs. You will reach in deep and create a mission statement for your life - a dharma code. You will have tools to take home with you that help you incorporate your dharma code into all aspects of your life. Doing this rich reflection will help you arrive a more joy-filled life.
