The solution to all the stress and problems in our lives come down to one thing.

The universe is not meeting our expectations.

In this charismatic Mindvalley Reunion presentation, celebrated author, speaker and innovative coach on creativity and personal mastery, Dr. Srikumar Rao, gets to the root of how to eliminate stress and become truly resilient to anything life throws our way: by becoming a radically different person.

Srikumar’s teachings are profound, yet his delivery is simple. Punctuated with practical anecdotes, entertaining historical references and charismatic humour, Srikumar’s presentation could be the most useful three quarters of an hour you ever spend.

Ask yourself – is this a journey that I want to take? Is this a place where I want to spend time? If you do this at many points in your life you will find that your life will change dramatically.
