One Word to Help You Go from Change to Transformation

You don’t get what you want, you get what you are, according to Justin Michael Williams. The musician, author, and advocate for diversity and inclusion in wellness explains the true difference between doing and being - and why a shift in "beingness" is the key to real transformation in the world. Justin joins Christine Chen on Esalen Live! in an interactive session to help us discover the future version of ourselves that awaits. (Recorded Live, March 4, 2021)

Justin will be co-leading a workshop on campus March 28 - April 2: "Building Your Authentic Power Through Mindfulness and Music."
