Always Too Much and Never Enough

February 08, 2019 | 7:30pm - 9:00pm | Nairobi Room, Graduate Community Center, 750 Escondido Road, Stanford, CA 94035

Abstract: Most people’s lives are shaped by desires. In a world that moves at a swift pace and is every changing, we are all working longer and harder, yet our desire seems to insatiable – always demanding more and leaving us with a sense that nothing is ever enough. We are desperate to be more beautiful, to be more successful, to have more attention, more love, more fun, more friends, and more money, cars and homes. We want to play more and have more exciting experiences. We want more spirituality, more connection, more passion, more purpose and more meaning. Sadly, for some people the quest for more manifests itself as a subconscious race to the bottom—creating more hardship, more drama, more depression and more misery.

In this talk we will explore the nature of desire, it’s the connection to identity and flipping the script to move towards a life of stillness and joy.
