Finding My Purpose: Between the Dream and the Rat Race
May 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10
In the endless cycle of our days and nights – wake up, work, school, home, Netflix, party on weekends, vacation once a year, and then repeat – do you ever think, “There’s got to be more to life than this?”
Caught between the desire for a meaningful life and the realities of living in a fast-paced, high-pressure, monetized society, how do we choose to live our lives?
Juggling the desire to live a life of purpose against the harsh reality of survival and competition – is the search for some substance and purpose only an unrealistic dream? Working hard every day to achieve one goal after another – one may wonder, “What does it all mean in the end?” Is there a real purpose and meaning to our lives? Or are we just missing the point in a sophisticated way?
Join world-traveling monk, Devamrita Swami, for an evening of meditation and discussion, diving deep into one of life’s biggest questions: what is the real meaning and purpose of my life?
