State of Pleasure: Igniting Passion in All You Do with Saida Désilets Ph.D. & Dr. Lissa Rankin

Original Air Date Wednesday, August 26, 2020 

How often do we suppress our intrinsic desires only to follow the path laid out for us by society or religion?

What if it is possible to fulfill ourselves and to feel intensely alive by simply allowing our internal guiding light to lead the way? And, what if our desire is the internal compass that leads us to our very own, precious destiny? Host, Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two authors who relish in subjects that border on the existential and divine. Dr. Saida Désilets describes the true nature of desire and how it guides our lives. And, Dr. Lissa Rankin explains how we all have an innate inner light that leads us to the eternal flame.
