The Real Magic of Surrender
tra 2 giorni
1:00:00Cheryl Esposito welcomes Kute Blackson, inspirer, best-selling author, transformational teacher, & wisdom leader to a new generation of spiritual seekers. Kute’s mission is simple: To awaken and inspire people across the planet to access inner freedom, live authentically and fulfill their true life’s purpose. His recent book, The Magic of Surrender I Finding the Courage to Let Go challenges us to take a new look at surrender. “Surrender isn’t giving up. It’s not about breaking you down; it’s about breaking you open – breaking your heart open to all that is possible for you. It’s tapping into a source that is bigger than your own personal power.” Kute Blackson was born in Ghana, the child of a Japanese mother and a Ghanaian father and has lived his life on four continents. Kute’s gift of oration was cultivated at an early age as he watched his minister father teach and inspire congregations throughout Africa and London. It was expected that Kute would continue his father’s legacy – except Kute wanted something more in his life. He knew that what everyone wanted for him was not what his heart wanted for him. This was one of Kute’s first (of many) opportunities to surrender to his truth. When he spoke his truth, he empowered himself to take a step forward into the unknown of potential. He had to let go. It was Kute’s mother who quietly practiced surrender as a life principle – everything is as it should be; every moment is a learning, and an opportunity to live one’s truth. Kute lives this everyday. Are you ready...to surrender to what life wants for you? Join Cheryl Esposito & Kute Blackson to explore the Magic of Surrender!
