The meaning of life is to be happy, and the pursuit of meaning is happiness. We as individuals do not create such meaning, rather it is discovered as we fearlessly process and realize our identities through experience. Life’s true luxury is not material; the power of creating your own happiness is the real luxury we should all strive for. Anthropologist, researcher and life coach, David Verdesi has dedicated his work to understanding the meaning of life on a micro-level and sharing his discoveries with the modern world. In this lecture workshop, Life’s True Luxury, Verdesi will define happiness and its history throughout our world’s wisdom traditions, share real-life circumstances that create our energies and teach practices for developing mindful awareness - allowing you to unleash your potential, develop your identity and unlock pure happiness for the long-term.
COMING SOON TO CORE
David Verdesi has dedicated his life to the actualization of the individuation process through applied mind training, comparing wisdom traditions and methods of askesis and its archetype through the hero’s journey, the phenomenology of human potential and altered states of consciousness.
As a wandering anthropologist, he travelled all over the world for 30 years, researching and comparing his own experiences with those of 120 mystics, yogis, cave-dwellers, saints and genuine enlightened beings, Siddhas from the mountains and jungles of India and Xian immortals from China and Southeast Asia, the Shamans of Central and South America and Africa, the Mystics of old Europe and the mysterious saints of the northern Steppes of Russia, Tibet and Mongolia.
He has culminated years of personal askesis and practice into the realization of an algorithm that can be applied to navigate, explore and integrate the human psyche into wholeness, the development of human potential and the maximization of happiness.
These experiences formed an instrumental part of an ongoing work of enrichment and comparison, contributing valuably to the successive phases of the development of his teachings.
