I Want, I Need, I Desire: The Price of Illusion

August 12, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


We live in a world where the promise of happiness and success is always just one step away. Bombarded by advertisements telling us what we should want, need and desire, we lose sight of our ourselves, and are swept away by the promise of future ecstasies. The price of this illusion is high, as planning always for future happiness we lose sight of the present moment. Join Devamrita Swami, a world-traveling monk and author, for an interactive discussion on the price we pay for our active participation in society’s illusions, and how we can pull away the veil that prevents us from seeing our true selves.
