What is Your Motivation for the Path?

A Zoom talk and conversation with Acharya Richard John

Saturday, January 9, 2021, 1:00 – 3:30 PM EST

Knowing your true motivation is more urgent than ever in this time of rampant materialism. Many of us dwell in a fog of habitual assumptions, while our lives drift away. Becoming clear about your motivation is an intimate process, which requires looking at your life and your experience with honest curiosity. Acting on your motivation can change everything, whether you are just entering the path or re-starting your path after many years of practice.

During the Zoom there will be ample time for conversation, so please take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions and share insights.
