"The Failure of Success and the Success of Failure"

This is Param's new FREE Seminar! He is a very engaging speaker. His talks are witty and very relatable. I have always found his talks time well spent and the time literally flies by! If you wish to attend he is asking that you RSVP to [masked] The Failure of Success and the Success of Failure: Many of us are pursuing success in different forms. Yet, we seldom stop and question if these images of success we inherited from our upbringing are really serving us in living fulfilling lives and in tapping into our inner talents, or are a burden to us, imprisoning us while making us subservient to external expectations. This talk will expose you to multiple paradigms of success and give you the opportunity to profoundly understand the challenges of your inner journey in a reflective and contemplative space. You will be invited to go beyond your everyday notions of success/failure and to experience the richness of your own being in a manner that is rarely possible in the 'busyness' of everyday living. Rather than succumbing to the seriousness of institutional bureaucratic living as we all do from time to time, you will begin to approach the future with a liberating playfulness, able to appreciate both the comic and tragic aspects of our obsession with success and our fear of failure. The talk will draw from distant repositories of global wisdom and will therefore enable you to examine your life from perspectives rarely available to you through your formal education. This will be a truly exciting pilgrimage of discovery into both the distant peaks and valleys of a global landscape and the deeply buried treasures of your inner consciousness. Feel free to invite a friend or a significant other as you may find added richness in experiencing the talk and having someone to discuss it with later.

    • Nancy

      Yes this is at BW and no meet up spot. I just wanted to make everyone aware of this great talk. It's usually very well attended

    Hey is anyone else getting cabin fever? I need more events so I do not go stir crazy? Even just coffee, sounding good to me, taking a class at Tri-c East has helped, but Spring is still a long way off, I would appreciate suggestions, thanks hope to see some of you soon!

      Hi Rebecca,

      Rebecca I have been to 3 of Param's talks. They are always insightful and engaging. He follows the work of Osho a lot. So philosophical along with humor and makes you think about why we go the things we humans do.

    Hi Rebecca,
    I just tried to send you his summary of the talk and this comment section is too small for it. Personally, I really like his perspective & think it will be quite interesting, but it really depends on what you're in to. He is funny & humble while very intelligent and well versed & thinks 'outside the mainstream box' (refreshing).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
