    • Hi Thomas, no registration is needed. The video will stream directly on this page (you’ll see a video player embedded right here). Thanks!

  1. I want to express my gratitude. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and for your beautiful presentation. I am inspired to continue refining my”self” in order to allow the flow of God to move into and through me. My past traumas and hurts no longer prevent Grace and have given me the strength to be in “withness” with others who are presently suffering. I can be grateful for it all now. 🙂

    Thank you, Thank you for this reminder and soul supportive talk.

    Love to you, your family and to all of the Ram Dass Foundation
