No matter your age, do you find yourself dreading the process of getting older?
Then it’s time to pull up a virtual cushion to receive hard-won insights from Ram Dass, one of America’s most beloved consciousness leaders.
After his stroke in 1997, Ram Dass faced partial paralysis, aphasia and a host of physical challenges — including chronic pain and all manner of inconveniences.
Yet today he considers the stroke an act of “fierce grace” that propelled him to another level of spiritual growth.
Ram Dass shows that it is possible to transform the heaviness that can come with aging into an expanded lightness of being and even joy.
In this special event, you’ll have a chance to harvest many seeds of wisdom to plant in the garden of your own life — blossoming into peace, playfulness and wisdom as you navigate your journey of growing older.
Ram Dass’ goal is to help you flourish as you mature — and shine with the illuminating light of your true essence. Specifically, you’ll:
Sadly, aging is often seen as a pejorative aspect of life in Western culture, with our worth, contribution and respect seemingly diminished with time.
It doesn’t have to be this way. If you’d like to dicover how to embrace the gifts of aging and make your later years your “golden years” — the most spiritually meaningful time of your life — there is no wiser guide than Ram Dass.
You CAN make aging into a journey of liberation, laughter and lightness of being if, like Ram Dass, you embrace it as “fierce grace.”
Surely, no one is better equipped to help us do that than Ram Dass, who lives with an effervescent grace, love and beauty... even in a body that has been severely impaired.
We’re honored to partner with him for a soul-expanding hour in which you’ll also learn about a brand new program with him that will explore this essential work in greater depth.
So many people are desperately searching for love, whether consciously or unconsciously. May Ram Dass’ intimate and heartfelt account inspire others to find their own path of true love, compassion and joyful service.

Ram Dass first went to India in 1967. He was still Dr. Richard Alpert, an already eminent Harvard psychologist and psychedelic pioneer with Dr. Timothy Leary. In India, he met his guru, Neem Karoli Baba (affectionately known as Maharaj-ji), who gave Ram Dass his name, which means "servant of God." In that moment, everything changed — his intense dharmic life started, and he became a pivotal influence on a culture that has reverberated with the words “Be Here Now” ever since.
Be Here Now, Ram Dass’ monumentally influential and seminal work, still stands as the highly readable centerpiece of Western articulation of Eastern philosophy, and how to live joyously 100 percent of the time in the present, luminous or mundane. Be Here Now continues to be the instruction manual of choice for generations of spiritual seekers. Forty years later, it’s still part of the timeless present.
Ram Dass now resides on Maui, where he shares satsang and kirtan, and where he can amplify the healing process in the air and waters of Hawaii. His work continues to serve as a path of wisdom and inspiration to countless seekers. Ram Dass’ spirit has been a guiding light for three generations, carrying along millions on the journey, helping free them from their bonds as he worked his way through his own.
