Grit: Authentic Spirituality

~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
We all have our own ideas about what being spiritual looks like. Yet as we evolve, those ideas need to expand in order to encompass greater arenas. Our youth are experiencing problems that were undreamt of in times past. Just one of many examples is the addiction crisis faced by today’s young people. We clearly need spirituality with grit in order to meet the growing needs and challenges of today.
How does spirituality need to evolve in order to support our youth in destress? Where can we find the grounded, practical spirituality needed to meet our children where they are, in order to support their evolutionary path to unity and wholeness?

With us this hour to explore the spiritual challenges faced by today’s youth is Chris Grosso. Chris is a youth mental health group facilitator with Newport Academy, public speaker, writer, and author of “Indie Spiritualist,” “Everything Mind” and “Dead Set on Living.” He writes for Revolver Magazine, ORIGIN Magazine, and Huffington Post, and has spoken and performed at Wanderlust Festival, Celebrate Your Life, Yoga Journal Conference, Sedona World Wisdom Days, and more.
Chris works with people who are in the process of healing or struggling with addictions of all kinds. He speaks and leads groups in detoxes, yoga studios, rehabs, youth centers, hospitals, conferences, and festivals worldwide.
