the 4 desires

Join Laurie Dean a Level 1 Certified Parayoga teacher and certified Four Desires Trainer for an amazing weekend! The Four Desires is a best-selling book, a workbook and meditation CD, but it all began, and continues to be, a powerful and truly life-changing process that Rod teaches as live events throughout the year.

A course like no other, applying the most profound insights into happiness and lasting fulfillment, the Four Desires process will transform you and your life––forever. This is a course for anyone––those who have never done yoga, experienced yoga students, and yoga teachers alike––that will teach you how to unlock your soul’s potential and empower you to prosper in every area of your life.

Throughout the weekend, you will be guided though short yoga and meditation practices, yoga nidra (complete physical, emotional and psychic relaxation) sessions, as well as yogic methods of vichara (discernment, self-reflection), exercises to help you find answers to your life’s most vital questions. You will also be provided with the tools to ensure that you stay on your soul’s brightest path long after the workshop is over. In short, this weekend will empower you to fulfill your highest destiny.

 “A human being is born to dive deep into the stream of life, find the hidden treasure and attain eternal fulfillment.” -The Upanishads

 The Four Desires is based on the ancient insight that your soul has four distinct desires…

Dharma—the desire for purpose, the drive to become who you are meant to be

Artha—the desire for the means (health, security, finances) to prosper materially

Kama—the desire for pleasures like intimacy, beauty, and love

Moksha—the desire for spiritual fulfillment and lasting freedom

The journey of learning to fulfill these four desires is how each of us creates our unique path to lasting happiness and, at the same time, how we each achieve our most vibrant, creative and meaningful contribution to the world.

This is a yoga training like no other. You will uncover your life’s purpose, discover your heart’s desires and learn how to apply tantric science in the art of fulfilling them, heighten your intuition, learn the ancient process for fulfilling specific intentions and apply the most effective processes for breaking free from your non-constructive patterns. This is a process for anyone––whether you have never done yoga or you’re an expert­­­­––wanting a better, richer, more meaningful life.

The Four Desires is a step-by-step process that will enable you to:

  • Uncover your life’s unique purpose

  • Discover your heart’s desires and increase your capacity to fulfill them

  • Understand and transform your non-constructive patterns

  • Access lasting peace

  • Overcome future challenges

  • Live more joyfully and intentionally

  • Tap into the healing and strengthening power of deep meditation and systematic, complete relaxation

  • Heighten your intuition
