Transforming Self - Ratnaguna (VIDEO)

Tue, 27 Aug, 2019 - 11:25

A wonderful first talk of the 2019 International Gathering, whose theme is ‘Alchemy of the Dharma’. The utterly delightful Ratnaguna takes us through the true miracle of transforming ourselves via the magic of a practice in which we also learn to let ourselves change.
