Many of us have been inspired by spiritual teachers, such as Byron Katie and Eckhart Tolle, who experienced life-changing spiritual awakenings virtually overnight. Their insights are deep and their teachings are inspiring, yet the suddenness of their transformation sometimes leaves people feeling that “they just can’t get there from here.” Is it possible to reach our highest potential, to live from soul rather than ego, without undergoing such a dramatic experience? Join award-winning author, teacher and transformational life coach Suzanne Eder for a lively exploration of this question. In her words, “ I believe it is possible to reach our highest potential without a dramatic, singular transformational event, and I also believe the journey of everyday moments - during which we make soul-based choices again and again - creates true self-empowerment. We actually get to experience the transformation moment by moment, to be fully conscious of the power we have to choose love instead of fear.” Learn how to soften resistance, meet fear with compassion, and find ways to stay connected with the deep longings of your soul that lead – and feed – your journey of awakening.
