Fix your soul and call me in the morning.
That’s what doctors should be recommending rather than a couple of aspirin or an apple a day. Anyone who agrees can check out a notable yogi, mystic and spiritual leader who will be in town this weekend.
Who: Sadhuguru J. Vasudev
When: Sunday, June 21
Where: Noetic Sciences Conference “Toward a Global Shift” at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort
What: He’s going to tell the audience about his theory and method of “Inner Engineering: Realize the Ultimate Power Within,” or tinkering with our insides to become the best we can be on the outside (no, it does not involve surgical procedures)
Why: Why not? The way the world is crumbling, rotting and warring around us, we might as well try something different
I’ve not seen Shadhuguru, but I have been to two yoga retreats in Tulum, Mexico, that left me feeling serene, sublime and as if I could rule the world. Of course, the effect lasted about three days before I was back screaming and swearing at fellow motorists.
We need to make these practices a part of our daily life, not just a week-long get-away. The world would be a much better place if we didn’t scream and swear at fellow motorists.
Do you believe in the power of positive thinking and healing the inner core before being able to successfully deal with the outer world?
Or do you think this kind of stuff is a bunch of flimflam, like when yelling preachers get crippled people to walk on stage?
