(Dashama and Dr Wayne Dyer, Santa Monica, CA 2010)

I recently ended a year long relationship that started out long distance and because of this, it was on and off for over a year. I was feeling a little sad and down and was seeking inspiration. I was looking for answers and they're weren't coming too easily. I figured what could pull me up out of this funk better then an evening with one of the great luminaries on this planet.

I'd heard of many of Dr. Dyer's books and programs (The Power of Intention has sold over 200 million copies world wide -for example), but I had never had the opportunity to hear him speak. So when I heard he was coming to Santa Monica, I decided I needed to be there and that was all that I knew.

He started out talking about his children, the obvious pride and joy of his life. And he shared many stories about his own path as well.

The most touching story he shared was about the time he went to look for his father's grave stone in his 30s. It had been over 20 years since he was abandoned as a 9 year old boy. He heard an Inner Calling to go see this grave stone to see if his father had acknowledged he had a son named Wayne, a mystery that had plagued him his entire life.
