Hi,

If you are not able to access any of the videos now but was able to a month back, please make sure that you are logged in. 🙂
And if you are having issues, is the issue a playback error?
Try to use another browser and make sure that your net connection is fine. Thank you!

There’s not too many genuine spiritual teachers out there, but he seems to be one of them for sure. One of the best episodes so far!

When something like the notion of positive affirmations is explained in such a precise technical language, it feels like I’ve just received an upgrade.
