THE GURU With Howard Falco

Sep 22, 2020

In this episode, Howard is talking about the sacred experience of enlightenment.

The true path to enlightenment or an expanded awareness may not be an easy one. But, to say it is invaluable to your life is an understatement.

In this show, Howard explains what enlightenment is; the myths surrounding enlightenment (i.e. what it is not); his own personal journey and experience with enlightenment; as well as some advice on how you can put yourself in a position to experience more of the wisdom that the universe offers every single day.

The search for greater wisdom… is not for the faint of heart. But, it is for anyone who wants it; anyone who’s willing to go through the process of opening themselves up to experiencing more of the wisdom and understanding that life has to offer.” — Howard Falco
