We all crave happiness, but do we know what it is our soul desires, how to attain it, or find satisfaction and fulfillment if we don’t? This book presents a process to navigate through these challenges, drawing on ancient yogic traditions that claim we have four desires:
- The desire to become who we were meant to be
- The desire for the means (money, health, security) to fulfill our purpose
- The desire for pleasure
- The desire for spiritual realization and ultimate freedom
In The Four Desires, Rod Stryker, considered one of the top yoga and meditation teachers in the country, provides techniques to help us pinpoint our specific longings and develop a life strategy to realize our full potential. Presented like a live seminar, each chapter includes specific exercises, real-life examples, a meditation practice and a yoga pose that embodies the theme of the discussion. Stryker provides the knowledge we need and invites us to apply it.
