Dharma if you Dare is a witty and compelling wakeup call for the modern world. It pulls you out of negative patterns to uncover the beauty and bliss that reside in and around us at all times.
In an increasingly divided, financially imbalanced and environmentally taxed world, it can be easy to feel hopeless, afraid or numb.
Dharma if you Dare points towards a life that transcends uncertain times and benefits all beings.
Based on an eclectic range of wisdom traditions, this book offers practical teachings, tools and meditations to help you reconnect with your real purpose: spiritual awakening in this lifetime.
Some of the book's insightful and liberating lessons:
Why meditate: "Meditation allows you to see that whenever you are interrupted or challenged, you react like a two-year-old-pouting or throwing a tantrum. You may not show that behavior to anyone except your intimate partner or family, but this is what's going on inside you. Seeing through your conditioning will allow you to choose your response rather than operate from a knee-jerk reaction to parental authority."
Authenticity: "The emotions and the body need space to dialogue. If you want to be authentic, you have to contact the whole gamut of emotions, from apathy and anger to excitement and joy."
Facing your Fears: "There was a point in your life when you needed to run. But you've done that already. You can't keep running. It's time to stop, turn around, and meet whatever you're afraid of."
