Career writer speaks! Discover your most valuable words: WordPLAY

A career writer speaks: WordPLAY by Sheila Murrey, Embodiment Wordsmith 

Workshop: Release the WORDS that no longer serve you; Exchange those words for uplifting, inspiring. and empowering ones that raise your consciousness and benefit ALL. 

A writer speaks: Words Workshop has been evacuated and rebranded as WordPLAY and sessions are being scheduled.

Audience: Wellness business owners, small business owners, teachers, speakers, managers, and parents.

In the WordPLAY Playshop

We will:

Identify the words we USE and when we speak them with an intention and tone that carries the frequency of a “to destroy” curse, such as the words typically spoken when we’re angry, upset, or in pain;
Use an intentional and elegant process to release the WORDS that no longer serve us, such as, low frequency, negative ones.
Playfully explore how we can replace lower vibration words with higher, more purposeful words to uplift, inspire, and empower ourselves and others to raise your consciousness and benefit ALL by expanding and elevating our collective consciousness.
And we’ll mine for words that resonate higher (and reach farther into the ether) to become aware of the empowering CHOICES we have when it comes to improving our health and wealth with our powerful words. Yes, voice matters (in multitudinous ways)!
As well, we will let go of words we overuse, that are unnecessary, or those we say because we think we need to fill empty space.

About the Process

During the WordPLAY playshop, you’ll be encouraged to play with thoughts and words in this interactive workshop (where the facilitator will be using a whiteboard and 3×5 index cards).
This will be an empowering exercise in Awareness, by a writer with over 33 years of career experience and two degrees, both in science (aviation business) and the arts (visual communications).

Bonus

We will uncover brilliant SEO keywords to expand our reach in the Mind, Body, Spirit, Soul Internet space! 

Send an email (Subject line: WordPLAY class) for class dates, times, and fees. Package discounts are available. Group sessions in person and online are available.

Both subtle results (new awareness) and tangible will be achieved.

2019: Review of a deeply heartfelt, well traveled, and winning year

2019 Year in Review: Heartfelt, Well traveled, and Winning

2019 was a deeply heartfelt year that created a lot of unexpected opportunities to travel, through loss and gain.

My husband and I drove across the state of Florida for me to emcee the Awakening Into the Sun outdoor yoga and music festival the first weekend in March (it’s an annual event). And this year we were so delighted to have my husband‘s sister and her husband join us! We all stayed at the Crystal Bay hotel in St. Pete and enjoyed a fun time at Caddy’s on the beach with friends too!

Heartfelt travel

Then deep sadness hit me only a few days later. My dad passed away in his sleep on March 8th. I wrote a long and meaningful eulogy for my papa here.

Can’t fly without you
Can’t fly without you.

Papa’s passing prompted my adult son and I to take a fast trip to West Virginia–with me doing all of the driving! I cannot even go into what a rushed and tiring trip this was. And grieving a lot of the way. But, I was glad to see the last property dad had bought, sit high on the ridge in peace and serenity, and have that entire road trip time with my son.

Later in the year, in September, I would find myself on another long road trip. This time, my husband and I took turns driving though. We drove from Florida to Tennessee for our sister-in-law, Mary Murrey’s funeral.

Sacred Celtic Journey

The trip I had booked in 2018 that was supposed to be taken in September 2019, was changed to July. And due to my father’s passing, my husband decided to join me and the group that was going.

It was a little last minute to pay for his ticket, but thankfully we knew before I had bought my airline ticket. And also thankfully, Patricia told us about Aer Lingus flights out of Orlando, and when I checked, they had non-stop flights for decent prices from Orlando to Dublin, Ireland (which was where our tour began). For more about that incredible trip, read all 3 parts, beginning here.

Seeing my girls

Went to NH to see my girls the week of Aug 5th. Only got to spend a week, but the best thing was that I got to sleep in my granddaughter’s room with her (that I couldn’t before without having breathing issues)! We had the best time!

Online classes

I participated in an 8 week class produced by the IONS group.
I thoroughly enjoyed engaging with our small group of 4 ladies in the Conscious Aging with facilitator, Beth Knight. This heartfelt group was sooo supportive and open to share meaningful life experiences!
I highly recommend taking this class if you’re over 50, or if you have any issues for yourself, parents, or other loved ones when it comes to embracing the aging process.
I also watched and bought the Keto Edge Summit package from Dr Jockers.
Near the end of the year, I hired a personal trainer for 12 sessions and astounded myself by how much I learned and what my body could do! I went from lifting 80 pounds to 200 pounds over the course of 3 months (due to illness, I had to skip some weeks), which really impressed me–read about that here.
About this same time, I hired a business coach and began working a one year plan, so my husband and I can work together to showcase his original music and art, travel, live off grid, and really combine his genius talent, experience, and education with mine. Read more about the direction we’re taking here.

Visiting friends in Florida

Finally, after saying we were going to see Tammy and Rodney for the last 10 years or so, we did it!! We took a weekend and went to Jupiter FL and the best bonus was that my elementary and high school friends, Nancy and husband, Jay, (who have lived in Stuart FL for years) got to join us!

We all had such a grand time that we want to go again!

Winning

I won a ticket to attend SoulTreat in Sedona AZ the weekend of Nov 2-3, 2019!!! I had two days on the red rocks and hike the same vortex behind the hotel where my Sedona siStars group had stayed when Alania and Patricia took us in 2016. I had an aWEsOMe experience and you can read more about that here.

But, before I could go to Sedona, I actually went to Las Vegas for an exciting health product convention! This was also a gift of a surprise when I had been told that my full-time job would end Nov. 30th (It didn’t and I may still be working through January 2020) and I reached out to my product sponsor that I needed to get busy sharing this product, (which my husband and I had been taking for a year). Read about that here.

Big News!

When we all thought my winning streak was over, I won again!

To me, all of this winning seemed to tell me that my papa wanted me to fly for him and enjoy all of the many opportunities in alignment for me. One of my intuitive friends told me it wasn’t only my dad lining these events up for me, but my grandfather! And for me, all I can do is say, “Thank You.” Thank you to all of my loving relatives here and in the Grand Beyond for these incredible and healing experiences!

Yes, I won a rare and highly prized ENTRY into the neolithic burial tomb Newgrange chamber for the 2019 Winter Solstice sunrise on Dec 18th!!! I was one of 60 people picked from 30,861 applications!!!

You can’t make this stuff up!

And the winning continued

At SoulTreat 2019 I bought $20 worth of raffle tickets and envisioned Shari Alyse calling out my name and saying that she was ecstatic that I, one of her SoulTreat winners, WON the Wellness pack worth over $1,000!!!

Well, Shari wasn’t the one who announced my name, but when Anna Pereira read my ticket number (which contained the number 18 that was synchronistic to me because of my dad), at first it took me a moment to realize it was me! Yep! I won this fantastic prize and it included a ticket to SoulTreat 2020!!!

After my flight home to Florida, I stuck to my commitment to present as a vendor at my local Women, Wine, and Wellness event in Cocoa (even though tired from a full day of travel and driving an hour from the airport). And won another gift there of a CBD pack, which I will be writing a product article about here. Stay tuned.

I invite you to stay tuned on the new coaching program I am currently putting together. If you have an interest in health, vitality, energy, consciousness, feeling better, and living a wholly vibrant life, I think you will love what I have in mind!

Winning! Thank you, SoulTreat!

Winning at SoulTreat

I am still reeling from all the exciting stuff that’s been happening with me lately! It has been a whirlwind of fun Energy for sure!!

I just got back a week ago, from attending a heart-expanding, life-changing Wellness Retreat, called SoulTreat. And SoulTreat was held at the beautiful Creative Life Center in the heart of the red rocks energy of Sedona, Arizona. Yes, to say it was all gloriously fabulous is an understatement. Really.

I went by myself, though I had invited hundreds via my personal Facebook page, and in personal invites, after I won my ticket (valued at $397). And even though another friend won a ticket also, she had a previous commitment and couldn’t attend.

Going alone

So, even though I was a little scared to pack up, move my body through space and time and fly to Phoenix, and then drive 2 hours to Sedona, alone in a rental car, I knew this was something I could do.

I had just went to Las Vegas (for the ASEA convention–discussed here), and had navigated easily from that airport to the nearby hotel and convention center, but I was meeting a group of friends there.

Mind Control

I kept reminding myself that I used to fly all over the country from 2000-2003, for work, and that I could do this. Yet, I hadn’t done that in years and for this trip, I would be alone. On the upside, I could create my own adventure, and I did!

Choosing for myself

I picked out the closest hotel to the Amithaba Stupa and Peace Park to stay because I’d been to that park 3 years ago and found it to be sooo spiritually uplifting. Read about that here.

Synchronicity

I met a wonderful soul-connected friend (Hi Suze!) during SoulTreat when the participants of our first breakout session were prompted to “pair up” while enjoying an experiential tuning session.

Getting in Tune

For all of this first retreat day, Suze and I chatted about our tuning experience. If we owned the tuning forks, we agreed to practice with each other when we returned home, (via Zoom, Skype, or Google Hangout), because we each felt the physical benefits from the session.

I wanted to learn more about the tuning forks, but was on the proverbial fence about spending the money, though it was a good deal (for SoulTreat attendees), and was actually less than I had thought it might be!

Giver Receives

Though I am a giver by nature, I still consider anything over $200, to be a “use your head, not just your heart” kind of purchase.

So, after I won a raffle prize the last day, and had “just happened” to walk into the center that morning with the facilitator of the tuning fork session, Rosemary Levesque, I knew I wanted to “pay it forward” and literally bought my set of tuning forks and her program in the parking lot at the end of the day as everyone was leaving! (Suze had bought hers a bit earlier that afternoon.)

Work continues

Now, I am happy to report that I am participating and learning more from her, via “The Wounded Healer” online program.

I am also all signed up, registered, and paid (because I added a night and upgraded my hotel room), for SoulTreat 2020 to be held in Boone, North Carolina in October of next year! Woo-freakin-hoo baby!! Yeah! ❤️😉

I haven’t had time to unpack it all yet, but desire to write blog articles for each person who contributed. ❤️

Give Receive, Receive Give

Plus, I am sending more gifts this holiday season to friends (than I otherwise would have done.)

I recall the universal law my friend, Lila, taught me years ago, “Give receive, receive give.”

All this WINNING has sparked a whole lot more generosity within me. And as my heart overflows with GRATITUDE, I can’t help but GIVE more! ❤️🦋🌀

2016: Review of a productive and enlightening year!

The year of 2016 has been a banner year of self discovery for me!! What a whirlwind of knowledge and experiential learning–and this is my review of such a productive and enlightening year:

After having completed Dr. Alison J Kay’s teleseries which had begun in Dec 2015, but wrapped up in January 2016–see more about that here, I believe it certainly set me up for quite a fantastic 2016! And I highly recommend Alison’s courses to everyone–especially if you want to have a banner year!

I began volunteering in January/February at Awakening Wellness center. I so loved meeting so many people there and being off service. Just the energy of being in a wellness center, where people could come for sessions and I could learn how to help, was such a joy! My heart warmed with each and every connection.

During this time, I met my naturopath and was urged to go back to a diet my husband and I had tried, but had given up years earlier–Dr. D’Adamo’s Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type. Two days after changing my diet, the stiffness in my ankles disappeared! Over the next few weeks I could think more clearly. As the months went on it became easier and easier to avoid the foods that Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo tells me are toxic to my body.

Then in February, I took Rev. Michael Beckwith’s six-week Master class online with Mind Valley. (Cost: About $300) I wrote a blog article especially about the program here.

The following is a brief summary of what I learned:

  • I learned and implemented the following thought: I cannot stop birds from flying around my head, but I can prevent them from nesting in my hair.
  • Affirmative and agenda-less prayer and meditation can always shift me back into Gratitude.
  • Faith, only as small as the size of a mustard seed, is all it takes to move the proverbial mountains in our life. Really.
  • Stay my attention on the changeless reality of my inner self, don’t look to the external world for fulfillment.
  • Silently converse with my own heart, commune with joy in my heart.

Meditate or affirm in prayer: I renounce any sense of being bound by personal history, habit, experience, or circumstance. I’m free as spirit is free.

 

In March, I volunteered and had the ultimate privilege to greet every vendor as they were setting up at our huge Awakening Into The Sun (a Zen festival) in downtown St. Petersburg. I had the utter joy of bringing in two vendors to the event too! Emily Stein and the Breakthrough group.

Throughout the two day event, I kept checking in with them–’cause that’s how I roll! I always want to ensure everyone’s ease and happiness while they’re at this fantastic event. We also bought concert tickets for, and attended, the Awakening pre-show. Both my husband and I immensely enjoyed the entertainers! They were all aWEsOMe!

Emily Stein (whom my husband and I took a class with) was one of the Awakening Into The Sun vendors. And I got to meet Emily’s mom! I love these powerful ladies! Such vibrancy! Beautiful spirits! I’m looking forward to spending more time with them in 2017.

Also that month, my daughter experienced a miscarriage. It was gut-wrenching. And since I’ve never been through it, I was truly at a loss for words. I felt helpless, without any way to offer her comfort. And since I had also signed up for, and was in the beginning of an eight-week class, though I wanted to grab a flight to New Hampshire to hug my daughter, I couldn’t get there until May. To ease the gap, and also to help my daughter in any small way that I could, I remembered that a friend of mine and hypnotherapist, had written a book on the subject of miscarriage. And it’s not a subject that very many people talk about!

So, I bought both of us a copy of Angel Babies and we read it together (via distance) and I believe that helped (at least a little bit) to ease my daughter’s mind, as well as, help myself–as the grandmother–to release my sad emotions and also feel and somehow relate a bit more to my mother’s feelings of loss–as she had lost five babies (my unborn siblings) when I was a child. You can find Patricia’s amazing book “Angel Babies” here. (Cost: Book: $15.95 or less on Amazon. Being able to offer comfort: Priceless)

As for that eight-week voice / energy class, I was able to continue, and I am sure it helped me too (to ease the sadness I was feeling for my daughter) with the Breakthrough Performance Workshop — and it did turn out to be a phenomenal experience!

Every week our little group of would-be singers were given a song to sing, sometimes a song we’d never heard of, and we would break through any mental barriers, stretch our voice, find our courage, and build our confidence by practicing the song at home, and then in front of the group at our next practice. Eventually, we videoed each other and learned what we liked, or didn’t like about each performance to build our stamina, poise, and performance ability.

Singing with Breakthrough band.png

When the night of our concert finally came, even with a pulled neck (which was my silly fault for trying to get into a way too tight garment) I got to do something I’d always dreamed of–to sing a solo with a live band! (Cost: $1200 plus)

After all of this amazing work, you must know how strong I was feeling, emotionally and physically. I’d been doing Pilates for about a year at this point, so on April 21 when I tripped over an ill placed box of printer paper, it really jolted me. I thought, “oh no, now here we go” and figured I might have really hurt one of my wrists, which I had landed on with nearly all of my body weight. But, to my joy and surprise, I didn’t break any bones and I healed quite quickly–only needed a couple of massages by my friend Tiffiny, and one acupuncture treatment. Read about Tiffiny’s massage therapy here.
(Cost over $200; and never got compensated from workman’s comp)

On May 5th, I was blessed to spend Mother’s Day in New Hampshire with my daughter and granddaughter. How much love! Like a sponge, every time we’re together I always soak in every moment. Lots of laughter, play, hugs, kisses, and singing! However, there was something or other in their hundred year old house that irritated my eyes and lungs, so once I returned home, I coughed for a couple of months and couldn’t sing for a long time.

In May, I also joyfully became a Florida Notary Public. And performed my first official wedding for Jessica and Phillip Walling, May 21st, 2016 at a beautiful outdoor venue. If you know anyone getting married in the Central Florida area, Tampa Bay area, or eastern part of Florida, let me know! It thrills my soul to be able to officiate weddings! I love being able to bring two people together with love and harmony.

The most fantastic news came by June–my daughter had conceived again!! And the most aWEsOMe of news was that… she’s having TWINS!!!!

The summer seemed to keep me busy… I attended several different meetups and finished several books.

In September, instead of my usual pilgrimage to New Hampshire for my granddaughter’s birthday, I’d learned that my daughter’s father and his wife were going to visit. So, that freed up my schedule. And I took advantage of this for ME! I took a once in a lifetime trip to Sedona AZ.

Unlike any other vacation, this trip was just for my Self, with two facilitators I have met and worked with, along with twelve other like-minded ladies, most of whom were unknown to me before the journey, but most became friends! I was full of Energy the whole time I was in Arizona, and felt like a kid again while hiking and exploring!! You can read the blog article I wrote about my Sedona trip here.

The downside was that while I was away, my husband fell and broke his wrist and our fridge quit working. I came home to my hubby needing me to help him get out of a shirt, empty and clean out our fridge, wash dishes (which he normally does), and so on. Our joke was that I climbed five mountains in five days and didn’t even break a nail, but he fell coming into the RV and broke the first bone he’s ever broken in his life. We tried any way we could to make light of the situation, so that I wouldn’t feel bad about having taken my solo vacation, and to help him heal and not feel depressed about not being able to play guitar, and not feel guilty about not being able to do regular household tasks.

However, three days after I arrived home from Sedona, I began coughing. Eventually, and not soon enough, I went to see my naturopath, Maggie. If only I had went to see her sooner, I’d not have suffered for a month or more! I found some relief as soon as I took the first homeopathic remedy–which, I realize, sounds incredible!

Apparently, I’d had several different kinds of things going on. I had markers for viruses, mold, two kinds of flu, and mycoplasma. Physically, I was a hot mess. I made a vow to refocus my attention on getting well–and staying well!

In September, I met Dr. Ronald K. Porter at Miracles bookstore. Ronald teaches Pranayama breathing and yoga and this was a workshop that I definitely needed. (Cost: $10) A nagging nerve pain that I’d had in my right knee was healed during the workshop–only from my focus on learning the breathing techniques!! I was thrilled! I loved the class so much that I started going to Dr. Porter’s yoga classes at Metro and invited friends to join me! Also, when Ronald was teaching the Pranayama class at Miracles again, I invited my friend Karen to go with me–and we had a great time!

Also in September, I attended a free yoga movie night in Sarasota and bought six DVDs directly from the filmmaker ($100). At that event, I met a new friend and she invited to see Sadhguru (who would be in Sarasota a week later). As it turned out, I was given a promo ticket for writing a blog article about Sadhguru’s book launch event, and received a copy of his new book!) What’s really interesting about this, and totally synchronistic was that all of this occured just a week after finding Sadhguru on YouTube while searching for more videos on Pranayama breathing!

November brought more enlightening events. On the 9th I attended a healing workshop at Heatherhoney’s center in Brandon. There I met Veronica, who facilitated the event and used Young Living essential oils to raise our vibration. Now I have been a Young Living essential oils distributor for years, but I’ve only used the oils in my own self-care and to give as gifts when I meet someone in need. So I’m always happy to continue experiencing how I can share these healthy oils–this event gave me more ideas on sharing.

I arrived early to the meeting and talked with Veronica a bit about a friend of ours who is suffering with ALS. Veronica asked me if our friend would be open to Alternative treatments, and if I had heard of the Medical Medium. Anthony William, the Medical Medium, has millions of people listening to him. And now I am too. Naturally, I was super excited to learn that there might be other ways to help our friend, so I passed all of what I learned to our friend to potentially ease her suffering.

Mid November, I took six FREE meditation classes from BKTampa.org – Brahma Kumari’s on Saturday and Sunday mornings in Tampa. Yes, I had to make the effort to drive 20+ miles to attend, but it was so mind expanding! I am grateful that there are teachers who make themselves available to teach meditation to anyone who will take the time to learn.

In another synchronistic meeting, I was invited to, and attended a healing event at the beautiful and energy-filled Crystal Bay hotel in St Petersburg, where I received a word from Dr. Mark Tong about exercising and that I should continue doing so. How could he have known that I had ramped up my yoga and Pilates!! Wow! After the event ended, my friend Terri introduced me to Linda McCarthy. As Linda and I talked, I experienced God bumps, which always validates that a conversation is of utmost importance to me (or perhaps, to my Soul).

Linda and I talked outside of the hotel until nearly everyone had gone. She gave me the audiobook called, The Reconnection. This was only just a week after I had found Dr. Eric Pearl on YouTube!!!

As the year ended, it found me celebrating a full and robust year of learning and implementing many of the new found mind-body and spirit-filled tools, which have increased my confidence, health, and well-being to overflowing!

I continue daily to practice meditation, yoga, Pranayama breathing, Pilates (twice a week), and singing / chanting to reach a higher and deeper sense of self and spiritual connectivity with our Ever-Living, Filling-All-Space, LIMITLESS Creator. Oh what a profound and beautiful year it has been!

I send you all many blessings, in ALL ways for a brilliant and uplifting 2017! Happy New Year!

Meet yogi and visionary humanitarian Sadhguru… Sunday Sept 25th, 2016 in Sarasota, Florida

Oh, this is sooo exciting!!! What a humble honor it is for me to share with you… Sadhguru will be visiting Sarasota Florida on Sunday, Sept 25, 2016!

As I sit writing this, I wonder what my focused experience of meeting Sadhguru will be like. Will it be similar to what my dear friend and angel Alania experienced and wrote about (here) last year? Will he say the same thing? Or like us, does Sadhguru continue to change and grow in the field of pure positive potentiality? Ahh…

Well, my dear lovely friends, I offer you an opportunity to find out.

Click here to go to the official website where you can find out all of the event particulars and buy your ticket to reserve your seat (there are multiple pricing levels, even a discounted student rate). Note: The minimum age limit to attend is 7 years.

I will be there. And I believe I will be in a state of awe. Not just of Sadhguru as a man, mystic, or master, but of the shared vibratory resonance that will occur in one place, when many finely tuned human instruments will join together to play a delightful symphony of BE-ing.

I have been watching Sadhguru on YouTube, since being introduced to Pranayama breathing only recently. Literally, within days of my beginning to practice my newly learned breathing techniques, I found myself at a film screening (I’d been invited with only two days notice, and I just simply knew that I must attend) whereby I was given the most thrilling news that Sadhguru would be visiting locally–SOON!

Well, if you know me, you will most definitely understand when I say, I jumped at the opportunity to, not only reserve my seat to attend, but also to serve by offering to write this blog article FAST and help get the news out about his upcoming visit!

Again, here is the link to all of the information about this extraordinary event. See you there!

We Are All Connected.

Amen. Namaste. OM

From the official Press Release (shared with permission):

Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy helps one to master the most sophisticated machine on the planet — the human being. During his North American Fall Tour, world renowned yogi and visionary humanitarian, Sadhguru, will introduce the new book, which will be released September 20th. Sadhguru will be touring 17 cities during his North American Fall Tour with an event planned in Sarasota on September 25th at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall.

For the first time, Sadhguru will present Western readers with a path to achieving absolute well-being through the classical science of yoga in a practical, accessible book. The wisdom distilled in this transformative book offers readers time-tested tools for creating inner situations exactly the way you want them, turning you into the architect of your own joy.

Sadhguru presents a philosophical and practical introduction to the power and profundity of yoga – as he puts it, “not as acrobatics or metaphysics, but as an empirical science that makes you the master of your own destiny…(this book) is an invitation to each one of you to turn from an armchair reader into a dynamic participant on an ecstatic journey inward.”

A yogi lives life in this expansive state and in this transformative book Sadhguru shares the story of his own awakening, from a boy to a young daredevil, to the moment of his enlightenment on a mountaintop in India, where time stood still, and he emerged radically changed.

“My aim in this book is to help make joy your constant companion. To make that happen, this book offers you not a sermon, but a science; not a teaching, but a technology; not a precept, but a path,” explains Sadhguru in the book’s forward.

Today, as the founder of Isha Foundation, a worldwide nonprofit organization, and classical yoga retreat centers in both the East and West, he lights the path for millions like you. Isha’s international retreat center based in the western world is the Isha Institute of Inner-sciences situated in Tennessee’s own spectacular Upper Cumberland just one hour northwest of Chattanooga, TN.

Just following the book release will be Isha’s popular, annual World Peace Day celebration September 24th, hosted at the Tennessee center. The World Peace Day celebration is an annual daylong event in honor of the United Nations International Day of Peace. World Peace Day is dedicated to cultivating peaceful possibilities within ourselves and our world through creative expression, celebration, yoga and meditation in the idyllic natural setting of the Foundation’s breathtaking Upper Cumberland retreat center.

Sadhguru is known around the world for large-scale humanitarian, educational, and environmental projects carried out by Isha Foundation, which he founded in 1992.   Supported by over three million volunteers worldwide, the objective of all the Foundation’s activities is to empower the individual to realize the ultimate potential within, and to promote a global climate of inclusiveness and harmony. Sadhguru has been an honored guest and speaker at distinguished forums and institutions including the United Nations, The World Economic Forum, Harvard, Wharton, Microsoft, TED, Google, and more.

Inner Engineering is a fascinating read of Sadhguru’s insights and his teaching. If you are ready, it is a tool to help awaken your own inner intelligence, the ultimate and supreme genius that mirrors the wisdom of the cosmos.” – Deepak Chopra

“I am inspired by Sadhguru’s capacity for joy, his exuberance for life, and the depth and breadth of his curiosity and knowledge. His book is filled with moments of wonder, awe, and intellectual challenge. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in self-transformation.” —Mark Hyman, MD, Director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, and New York Times bestselling author
