Maui Meeting 10/2/15 1 MP3 Download 1 hrs. 51 min. $10.00

Have you ever tried to be a certain way or conform to an idea of who you think you should be? Even within spirituality, most people pursue some idealized spiritual persona rather than allow themselves to be who they are. In this evening event in Maui, Adyashanti encourages an authentic turn within to discover the truth of your innate being that doesn’t need to be sought, because it’s already present. He also shows how to bring a child-like wonder to your deepest inquiries and directly experience the happiness and freedom that is beyond anything your mind can conjure up.
