Following your bliss is not always easy. In fact according to Bo Lozoff, there’s only one thing more difficult: not following your bliss. Lozoff is following his at the Human Kindness Foundation he co-founded, where he gets to “see people in some of the most profound changes of their lives.” Life at the Foundation is centered on three timeless spiritual traditions: communion, community, and simple living. Lozoff believes we can make a better world for our children: “Kids need to see adults who are radiant, powerful and really happy about growing olderópeople who say ‘I love my life’ and really mean it.” Discover why it’s immaterial whether you are rich or poor; ways to uncover the work you were meant to do; and, how to enter the Kingdom of Heaven – right here on Earth!
Lozoff has been a spiritual activist for more than 25 years, and was named by Utne Reader as one of America’s top spiritual visionaries. He is the author of We’re All Doing Time (Human Kindness 1994) and It’s a Meaningful Life, it Just Takes Practice (Viking 2000).
