Thanks to everyone who came to this morning’s benefit for Saints hometown hero and yogi Steve Gleason, his wife Michel, and their baby boy Rivers! We raised over $1,100 for the cause! Steve was a student at Wild Lotus for many years and has always been an inspiration to us, now even more so, with the inspiring way that he’s handling his recent ALS diagnosis.
In class, Sean told inspirational stories from some of Steve’s favorite books including The Ramayana, The Bhagavad Gita, and Joseph Campbell’s The Hero With A Thousand Faces. Steve’s greatest wish is to inspire each of us to live an awesome life, to be as alive as possible. “Heroes are born from adversity,” Steve says. and “Awesome ain’t easy.”
