Finding Your Inner Voice

decisions 2

“Don’t chase love, money, or success. Become the best version of yourself and those things will chase you.” – Tony Gaskins

Much easier said than done! The world tells us to chase money, economic success, great grades, great careers, maybe get married and have a family – but how in the world can we figure out what we want, and what we, the soul, really need? How do we find the right answer to all the decisions we are faced with on the regular? People talk about the inner voice, or intuition – but do we really understand what that means?

Let’s have an awesome interactive discussion about this. We’ll tell you the Krishna perspective, and we want to hear yours.

Here’s everything you need to know:

What: Finding your inner voice

When: Monday, November 30 at 7pm – 8:30pm

Where: Student Centre, room 307

Cost: FREE for newcomers, $5 for returning non members

Why? Because the people are awesome, we serve a veggie meal, and we end with a super cool optional mantra meditation exercise

See you there!
