Free in-store talk with Mark Matousek
Spiritual seekers face unique challenges in navigating the material world. How do we balance practical matters with the challenges of the inner journey? How can ordinary folks flourish «on the ground» — with jobs, families, finances, and so on — without losing sight of their higher purpose? In this talk and mini-workshop, bestselling author and teacher Mark Matousek
explores the promises, pitfalls, and paradoxes of spiritual seeking, and how they can be reconciled with everyday existence. Drawing on 35 years of experience as a non-dual practitioner, and personal guidance by a number of living masters, he offers practical advice for remaining centered — and sane — on the mysterious path of awakening.
“Mark Matousek is a wise and caring guide who, like the early Eastern masters, offers insights as tools to free and build your life with.”
— Mark Nepo
