Zoom Event! Enter the Never-Ending Flame of Self-Transformation
Guy Finley, Thursday, June 8, 7PM, $10
Guy tells us that we are born with an indefinable longing to grow beyond ourselves and to penetrate and illuminate the mysterious depths of our own heart. He adds that nothing can stop us in our quest if we learn – and practice – the specialized part we play in our own transformation. During his talk and the open Q&A that follows, Guy will discuss how we can embark on the process of self-transformation, including practical steps to take.
He will give insight into how it is possible to:
Discover the Invisible Door that Leads to a New Level of Yourself
Realize the Perfect Peace Hidden in Understanding Your True Place in the World
Step Up to and Through the Barrier Between Yourself and the Divine,
End the Anxiety and Torment of “Never Being Enough”
Attendees will gain new understanding of how to come under the healing power
of life’s ceaseless process of transformation.
Guy Finley has been helping people do the inner work needed for a transformed nature for over 30 years, and he offers this encouraging wisdom on our power to change: “Nothing in reality is fixed. The illusion of some unwanted, unchanging nature within you is the work of unconscious resistance to the ceaseless transformation that is the matrix of Real Life.”Bestselling “Letting Go” author Guy Finley’s books have sold 2 million copies in 24 languages worldwide. This modern-day master has revealed the
path to enlightened living for over 40 years. https://www.guyfinley.org/
