60 Mindful Minutes

May 24, 2022

David Gandelman has helped thousands of students look within to find their own answers to life’s big questions: Who am I? What am I here to do? How can I find happiness? In his new book, The Seven Energies of the Soul, he explores the concept that there are seven potent energies that exist within each individual soul. When any one or more of these energies is out of balance, our lives can become chaotic and unfulfilled. To David, each of us has the power to evaluate our energetic strengths and weaknesses, and work toward spiritual and energetic balance. We start by attuning inwards.
