Vedanta: A Blueprint for Everyday Life

In an unprecedented event, six nuns from three Vedanta Society convents joined to discuss "Vedanta: A Blueprint for Everyday Life." The retreat built around this discussion was a resounding success, and now this DVD makes it possible for you to become part of the larger audience. 
The panel was built around four discussion points: dealing with negativity, rethinking our identity, spiritual practice and not falling prey to self-deception. All six nuns addressed these issues from various angles with intelligence, wisdom and humor. Each nun also discussed what made them take up spiritual life, and each nun also took questions from the audience at the end of the retreat. The DVD begins with a guided meditation.

Vedanta: A Blueprint for Everyday Life
It will be difficult to find another DVD made anywhere by anyone that can top this one for "practical spirituality in action". We are born/live in such a confused, mostly materialistic society. It is so refreshing and inspiring to hear and feel "peers" share their experience and provide a navigation map to enhance and deify our lives. 

Yours in the Lord, Luiz Antonio
