Living Ecstasy is about Waking Up with humor and with Love. Living Ecstasy is not a “get-happy-in-10-easy-steps” type of book. Living Ecstasy assumes that you are not broken or needy. You do not lack anything.
Kinshasha’s conversation with Satyen Raja is a beautiful conversation about living our lives in joy.
Living Ecstasy is designed to be an invitation and a challenge. Ignite your deepest passion and claim your birthright! Do not wait another moment to give your Love and Freedom, and to feel the full expression of Life.
Satyen’s deepest purpose for living is to make it possible for others to Awaken in a way that is real, practical and sustainable. He is the President and founder of WarriorSage, one of the leading spiritual growth organizations in the world.
Is your first or third skin a hot spot? First skin is the thing that bounds our physical being; second skin is our clothes; third skin is the built environment we live and work in.
