According to ancient Yogic tradition, your soul has four distinct desires: the desire for purpose, the drive to become who you are meant to be, the desire for the means to prosper in this world, the desire for pleasures like intimacy, beauty, and love, and the desire for spiritual fulfillment and lasting freedom. Learning to honor these four desires is the key to happiness, and to a complete and balanced life.
For more than three decades, master teacher Rod Stryker has taught yoga in the context of its deepest philosophy. His course has helped thousands recognize their soul’s call to greatness and to achieve their dreams. Now, in this wise and richly practical book, he has distilled those broad teachings into a roadmap for becoming the person you were meant to be. The Four Desires (Delacorte, $26) is nothing less than a complete path toward living your best life possible—a life that is rich in meaning and in means, a life that attracts and emanates happiness, a life that is your unique gift to yourself and the world.
This event is presented in collaboration with Prana Yoga.
