  "Desire is here to stay. The challenge we all face, and which the author guides you through, is to learn how to take into account the full measure of who you are and use the positive force of all four of your soul's desires to lead you to your best life."
-Rod Stryker

According to ancient Yogic tradition, your soul has four distinct desires:

  • The desire for purpose, the drive to become who you are meant to be
  • The desire for the means (money, security, health) to prosper in this world
  • The desire for pleasures like intimacy, beauty, and love
  • The desire for spiritual fulfillment and lasting freedom

Learning to honour these four desires is the key to happiness, and to a complete and balanced life. But how can you discern what will truly satisfy your desires? How can you increase your capacity to achieve them? What if your desires seem to conflict with one another? Is it really possible to live a spiritual life while also wanting material pleasures and success?

For more than three decades, master teacher Rod Stryker has taught yoga in the context of its deepest philosophy. His course, called The Yoga of Fulfillment, has helped thousands recognize their soul's call to greatness and to achieve their dreams. Now, in this wise and richly practical book, he has distilled those broad teachings into a roadmap for becoming the person you were meant to be. It is filled with revealing true stories, provocative exercises, and practices for unlocking your inner guidance.

The Four Desires is nothing less than a complete path toward living your best life possible - a life that is rich in meaning and in means, a life that attracts and emanates happiness, a life that is your unique gift to yourself and the world.
