Pedram Shojai: Becoming Vibrantly Alive
Pedram Shojai is a former Taoist monk, Qi Gong master, and the creator of the Urban Monk Academy, podcast, and Mastermind program, as well as the New York Times bestselling book The Urban Monk. With Sounds True, Pedram has recorded a new audio course titled The Urban Monk Inner Stillness Training Program. In this week's excerpt, chosen by Sounds True producer Kriste Peoples, Pedram introduces listeners to the great work of internal alchemy taught by the Yellow Dragon monastic lineage. He explains the basics of lifestyle choices and qi-movement exercises designed to catalyze personal change on every level, rousing us from indolence and into a rich new engagement with life. Speaking on the segment, Kriste notes, "Once we understand the fullness of who we are, we have no other choice than to wake up, coming fully into consciousness, vibrantly alive."
