Description: Some desire a free world, a beautiful sunny day, some recognition by friends and family or others may desire just a little more money for that long cherished vacation. To desire is natural and it seems very innocent. Just an innocent wish. Ever wonder what is the natural outcome of desire? Desire is the fuel, the fire, which keeps the wheel of the world churning; a force more powerful than raging wind that takes us place.
Join us this evening as Devamrita Swami, a monk of over 40 years speaks to us about the art of desire management. Yoga texts explain that the Fire of desire shapes our lives and the world around us and the key to success in life lies in taming the desire energy.

An evening of meditation, deep thought, inner journey and delicious vegan meal for everyone.
